Hi!  My name is Kimberly and my hobby is customizing vintage Star Wars action figures.  I am always in need of low grade loose action figures.  I would love to make a trade for more of these for some of my customs so that I can keep creating!
Here are examples of what I've done:


mod edit: Uzay custom moc removed as it reproduces a production version.


Thanks for looking!

You are saying your Kimberly? The same Kimberly that is a member here under a different username? The one who is the Kimberly from this thread? http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t7183-kimberly-s-custom-carded-figures

I am just wanting to confirm this since I don't understand having two different usernames.

Yes, that is me. Sorry for the confusion. I tried to log in under that username and for the life of me can't! I started a new account that reflects the name of my business. Smile

I thought they looked familiar, not sure if I have anything at the moment but is there any you are looking for in particular as maybe we can trade loose figs.

Hi Kimberly, I've removed your Uzay custom moc as it sails too close to the wind in being a repro of a previously produced item. You're more than welcome to limelight or trade your custom work on TIG at anytime so long as you're not offering up repros.


"Custom Carded Figures - Figures that are made of characters that were not production-made (e.g. Carded Aunt Beru) are allowed as long as they have no real counterpart. In simpler terms, people must be able to look at it and know instantly it's not the real thing."

Kim, I would urge you to stay in the custom world and do custom items using different pics or something completely different from production. Your items are great, and they are sold by you as custom, but the buyer might not be so honest. Apparently you have dipped your toes not just into the uzay, but also made a fett and cc jawa even giving them fake grades. http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1121256/

Please consider that though you might be honest on these it would be easy for someone to buy these and remove the grade sticker and sell them as carded ungraded.
