My favorite vehicle in the Prequel Star Wars Universe has to be the Clone Gunships and Joe's Custom Creations as painstakingly created this Custom Lego Star Wars Dark Red Shadow Republic Gunship aptly dubbed the Knight Stalker. The creativity in this custom is endless. From the modifications to Gunship to the Clone Troops ready for battle, this Elite Force is ready for action! He modeled this vehicle on the original 7676 Republic Gunship and added two side mounted Gatling guns and even created an escape pod minijet, roving ATV, and wing mounted cannons that really fire.
As cool as this custom is, the story is equally as cool:
"This is a time of great uncertainty for the Galactic Republic. The Separatists are building a coalition of thousands of star systems. The Republic must stop the spread of lawlessness and disorder no matter where it goes! Characterized by the Dark Red, Silver, and Black markings on their armor & ships, the Republic's Shadow legion is the Republic's Elite Stealth Legion. To the public, the Shadow Legion doesn't exist, but when the job needs to be done and there is no fame to be had, the Republic calls upon the Shadow forces."
This custom is available to buy now (no bidding) on eBay so head over there and snatch up Joe's Custom Lego Star Wars Dark Red Shadow Republic Gunship elite force set!
If you ever wanted to recreate the pinnacle scene in the Revenge of the Sith movie where Anakin (aka Darth Vader) storms the Jedi Temple with his gaggle of Clones now is your chance! nmptheboss has put together this Custom Lego Star Wars 501st Legion battalion with an awesome set of troopers as well as an AT-RT Walker. Now you can storm your own Jedi Temple...minifig style!
The Gunships in the Star Wars Universe are my favorite vehicles and most of the vehicles are pretty generic so it is great to see how creative customizers can get. Take Jaf1970's Kashyyyk Republic Gunship, for example! With Legos, you have the freedom to create any style you want and I think it is cool that we can imagine a Gunship styled after the famous battle for Kashyyyk. The colors of the bricks blend very well with that world. My favorite part of this custom is the World War 2 style deco of the arm ripping off a head of a battle droid. To see more photos, check out Jaf1970's Custom Lego Star Wars Kashyyyk Republic Gunship on eBay!
Worth its weight in gold? This Custom Gold Plated Lego Star Wars C-3PO is! 24K gold to exact. When I first saw this minifig I said to myself, "Wow...someone did a really nice gold color plating on this figure," but as I dug a little deeper, I discovered that the gold is real and it was plated by a very sophisticated process, which is outline below:
"This minifigure was chrome plated using Real 24k Gold. This minifigure is made with genuine Lego Plastic parts that have been Chrome Plated using a Vacuum Metalization Process (which vaporizes Aluminum and 24k GOLD to create the chrome plating effect). The Torso is made with a High quality water slide decal seal. It is clear coated to provide great wear protection for play or display."
This color gold brings out the movie like appearance C-3PO had and is even better looking than the 14K Gold C-3PO that Lego produced back in 2007. To see more photos of this Custom Gold Plated Lego Star Wars C-3PO, head over to eBay!
A little color can go a long way. Growing up with the original Star Wars trilogy, the cruisers, tie fighters, and star ships were pretty bland and gray. Don't get me wrong, the vehicles in the Star Wars universe are classic but when the prequels came out, they started to introduce some subtle color. The Republic Cruisers added a nice cranberry red and it brought the vehicles to the next level, which is what MyAmazinValues has done to this 5000+ piece Custom Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon #10179. Replacing the few red bricks of color with a few shades of blue in the right places really gives this Lego Star Wars behemoth pop! Let me know your thoughts by posting a comment!
Legos may be small but people can make some mighty customs with them and Menges76 has found a way to improve upon the design of one of the galaxies most menacing ships with his Custom Lego Star Wars Slave 1 vehicle. Here is how he did it:
"Designed from set 6209. The base has been lengthened and widened. The top is removable in two sections to access a computer and gauge monitoring station and weapons station. An ion cannon and rocket rack deploy from doors that open on the sides of the hull. The floor for the upper deck is removable and reveals a large cargo area and prisoner hold. Boba Fett can sit in the pilot's seat with his jet pack on. The cockpit is highly detailed with multiple computer screens and gauges. The wings turn independently and turn when ship is in its flying position."

If you remember the brief moment of fame that Coleman Trebor experienced in the Attack of the Clones Star Wars Episode 2 movie, you may recall that he was the Jedi that was blown away by Jango Fett. Falling to his death below in the Geonosis Arena is no way for a Jedi to go! Immortalizing this brave Jedi is Christo7108's Custom Lego Star Wars Coleman Trebor minifig. Given the odd shape of Trebor's head, Christo did a great job capturing the detail, which is much more elaborate than the stock Lego heads that some of the figures come with. Add this one of a kind Custom Lego Star Wars Coleman Trebor minifig to your collection today!
Imagination and Star Wars go hand in hand and HueyToys is adding to the Clone Army's capabilities to mount offensives against the Separatist forces with his Custom Lego Star Wars Clone Dropship vehicle. This vehicle looks like it was produced by Lego and fits right in with the design of the Star Wars vehicles. This compact design looks like a it is an unassuming transport but in actuality the ship can hold 15 minifigs! The black hatch doors look like they would be able to fend off any laser attack. I can't tell from the photos but it would be great if the sides lowered down so that the troops could easily make their way out of the dropship. Imagine a fleet of 100 dropships landing to attack, like modern day Higgins boats that were used for the Normandy invasions of France and the Pacific Island campaigns in WWII!
Christo provides an answer to age of old question "what does a Stormtrooper do on his day off" with his Custom Lego Star Wars Beach Stormtrooper minifig. In all seriousness, Christo makes really awesome Custom Lego Star Wars minifigs and I am happy to see that he lets his hair down and has fun with them once and a while. The Beach Stormtrooper struck me on a personal level as I saw my first vacation Stormtrooper at Comic Con 2010, which was a dude in Stormtrooper armor with a Hawaiian shirt and shorts. My son took a picture with him and this figure reminds me of that trip.
Introduced in Season 3 of Star Wars The Clone Wars animated series, Ingencorp has created this very cool Custom Lego Star Wars Savage Opress minifig. It was great to see the origins of Darth Maul and this minifig has captured the on screen appearance of Savage very well. The apoxie used to sculpt the horns and the outfit that Opress was seen in is a great addition to the figure. The horns are in scale with the minifig as the animated series appearance Opress' had very large scale horns compared to the head. Top the figure off with a custom double bladed lightsaber and this Dathomiri Zabrak, who lived as a member of the Nightbrother clan on Dathomir, is ready for action.
In Star Wars minifig style, venom113jp has created this cool Clone Wars character with his Lego Star Wars Pre Vizsla Clone Wars Custom minifig. Modeling the figure after the Clone Wars animated series, this figure will make a great addition to your Lego Minifig collection. Pre Vizsla was a Mandalorian from the planet Mandalore,who lived during the Clone Wars. By around 22 BBY, Vizsla had become the leader of the Death Watch splinter group in opposition to the pacifist Duchess Satine Kryze and her peaceful New Mandalorian organization's rule over Mandalore, a government that Vizsla believed dishonored the Mandalorians' generations-old warrior traditions.
Order 66 was the Darth Sidious' final solution to the Jedi Order and BrickBuildersPro has created some killer Custom Lego Star Wars Clone Trooper Assassins, painted up as an homage to some very popular Dark Lords of the Sith. Here is the story behind these figure:
"Months after Order 66, force sensitive clones are recruited to hunt down any remaining Jedi. A prelude to the shadow trooper, these deadly assassins paint there armor in terrifying colors to honor their dark master's legacy: Maul, Nihilus and Vader"
I love the concept of Clones working for Sith's and painting themselves up in their honor. The three figures and base also looks like a mini diorama with the skulls and lightsabers of fallen Jedi at their feet. To place a bid on BrickBuildersPro's Custom Lego Star Wars Clone Trooper Assassins, head over to eBay!
I have come to the conclusion that you can pretty much make anything out of Legos. This Custom Lego Star Wars Hoth diorama is case in point! The person who made this even went so far as to create the illusion of ripples in the snow from the high winds that blow on the icy planet. If that was not enough, there is even more to look at in the base itself. Here is a peak into the Rebel base:
Looking at this makes me want to buy about 100,000 Lego bricks and get to building! Although this diorama is not for sale on eBay, you can get all of your supplies to create this Custom Lego Star Wars dio their
The great thing about Legos is that you can create almost anything out of these little bricks and Jaf1970 has built this Custom Lego Star Wars Rebel Hoth Base using over 900 Lego bricks. The assault and Hoth is one of the greatest battle scenes in the Star Wars trilogy and now your Rebel minifigs can set up shop in their secret location on the ice planet. One thing that is cool about this base is the access to the rooms that Jaf has built in using retractable ceilings, which gives a lot of playability to the Lego set:
In addition to the base, the set comes with 5 figures and instructions on CD-R with over 160 individual images to take you through the creation process step by step. To view more photos of this one of a kind Custom Lego Star Wars Rebel Hoth Base, head over to eBay!
Granted the Star Wars prequels have undergone much scrutiny but one cool thing about them was that they began to tell the story of the origins of some of the main characters in the last 3 chapters of the Star Wars saga. This week, Rurisk has a father and son combination with his Custom Lego Star Wars Jango and Boba Fett minifigs. This is a cool combination because you see the evolution of Boba Fett and if you remember anything from the Attack of the Clones movie, Boba will look like Jango when he is grown up although we never see his face in the last 3 chapters of the Star Wars movies. Come to think of it, Boba Fett had very little screen time but achieved rock star status in the collector community. I like the way that Rurisk has added facial stubble to Jango's face and also gave Boba a slight smirk, giving the figures a slightly different look. I also like the way that the backpack and helmet are one piece, which makes the backpack stay in one place:
We first were introduced to the concept of the spiritual form a Jedi takes when they pass on when Obi-Wan Kenobi sacrificed himself so he could help Luke, when Yoda passed away from old age, and when Darth Vader was set aflame in a funeral pyre at the end of Return of the Jedi. Since the retouched versions of the original trilogy have come out, the old spirit of Anakin has been replaced by the younger version, which is represented in this set of Lego Minifigs. Rurisk, a Lego customizer extraordinaire, has created this one of a kind set of Custom Lego Star Wars Jedi Spirits: Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Qui Gon Jin minifigs. He has created a cool ghosting effect to replicate how the characters appeared in the movies and each come with a custom clear Light Saber.
The Gunships have to be one of my favorite vehicles from the newer Star Wars movies and JoesCustomsCreations has created Commander Bly's battalion complete with a ride with his Custom Lego Star Wars 327th Gunship. Dubbed "The Hornet," this Gunship is ready for action and with the 327th Clone Troopers ready for action, this Gunship with make your Lego Star Wars universe feel like the Clone Wars is actually happening but on a much smaller scale. Commander Bly does require a bit more specialized forces and weaponry so JoesCustomCreations has pimped out this Gunship with 2 side mounted mini Gatling Guns, a Roving ATV, and an escape Jet. This is truly one of the more unique Gunships I have scene to date. Here is a closeer look at the troops:
There is a great story about these figures and more detail about the Gunship over at the auction page so head over to eBay and check out this one of a kind Custom Lego Star Wars 327th Gunship.
One of my favorite vehicles from the original Star Wars movies was the Tie Interceptors and jojojrshabado has followed the exact Lego specifications but created this awesome Custom Lego Star Wars Royal Guard Tie Interceptor. Since Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine surrounded themselves with the red Royal Guards, it would only make sense that Vader would have a custom red version made to escort himself from moon to moon or planet to planet. To place a bid on this great vehicle, head over to eBay and check out jojojrshabado's Custom Lego Star Wars Royal Guard Tie Interceptor.
Growing up with watching the Star Wars movies in the order of 4, 5, and 6, one of my favorite parts of Return of the Jedi was getting to finally see Darth Vader's face. CAB Customs has captured the sullen look of an old battered Vader in small form with his Custom Lego Star Wars Darth Vader figure. With all of the customs that CAB makes, he does not use any stickers and the figure is made like it was from the Lego factory. One day, I hope he shares his secret but until then, head over to eBay and check out CAB's Custom Lego Star Wars Darth Vader figure.
We first got a look at Durge in the in the first Clone Wars Animated Series back in 2003 and boy was he a force to be reckoned with. FreshFromTheSewers has a scaled down version of this menace with his Custom Lego Star Wars Durge Minifig. The detailing on this figure is excellent as it bears the markings of a bounty hunter and the shoulders are augmented to give him a meaner, more substantial look. If you think the front looks great, head over to eBay and take a look at the detailing on the back of the figure. While you are there, place a bid on FreshFromTheSewer's Custom Lego Star Wars Durge Minifig.
FriendLiang has one of the most memorable clone commanders from the Revenge of the Sith movie in small form with his Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Cody minifig. What I love about this figure is that he used a small piece from vehicle to mimic the holographic Order 66 directive from Darth Sidious. FriendLiang makes awesome custom Minifigs so be sure to check out his Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Cody minifig and others over on eBay!
goongalacowabunga84 has a great version of a very cool clone commander with his Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Gree minifig.

If you are looking to add a Clone Commander to your ranks, head over to eBay and check out this Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Gree minifig.

FriendLiang has captured one of my favorite Clone Wars episodes with his Captain Rex Snow Assault Custom Lego Star Wars Minifig. When I first saw the Trespass episode, I was pleased to see that they had tied in some of the older Star Wars movies with an homage to the past. I like the Rex's helmet was crafted and the overall look of the figure captures how Captain Rex's character appeared in the episode. To place a bid on FriendLiang's Captain Rex Snow Assault Custom Lego Star Wars Minifig, head over to eBay!
The Venator Class Star Destroyers are one of my favorite large vehicles from the Star Wars series. Simple but massive in the design, these ships remind me of sea warfare as the ships must line up side by side to each other to deliver their crushing blows. 5striley5 has created this Custom Lego Star Wars Venator Class Star Destroyer that is over 2 feet long! He also made a cool video so check it out below:embedded by Embedded Video
If you want to add a really cool vehicle to your Lego Star Wars collection that is over 2 feet long and uses over 3,000 bricks, head over to eBay and check out this Custom Lego Star Wars Venator Class Star Destroyer.
Commander Keller was one of my favorite clones from the Star Wars 3 3/4" line and I am happy to see him in minifig form. Friendliang has created this Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Keller minifig and it is awesome! The incorporation of the soft goods really makes this figure unique. The armor design looks great and helmet art looks proportional. Who doesn't need another Clone Commander to lead the troops? Head over to eBay and check out more photos of Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Keller minifig so you can see the cool art on the back of the cape.
FreshFromTheSewers has created one of the most feared bounty hunters to wreak havoc on the Clone Wars Animated scene with his Custom Lego Star Wars Cad Bane minifig. Given center stage in Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 2, Cad Bane has already caused major damage to the future of the Jedi Order. With his signature blue skin and breathing aparatus, FreshFromTheSewers did an excellent job translating this figure into the Lego world.
The customizer with a cool name has a Custom Lego Star Wars Kashyyyk Clone Trooper minifig up this week that is very well done! Goongalacowabunga84's minifig is a great translation of the ROTS Kashyyyk Troopers. I really like the concept of this figure as it is less boxy than the original BARC troopers, who look like Biker Scouts in camouflage. The colors are also spot on and this figure is very well crafted overall. To place a bid on this great Custom Lego Star Wars Kashyyyk Clone Trooper minifig, head over to eBay!
One of my favorite parts of Star Wars Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith was when the Utapau Clone Troopers descended upon the battle for Utapau.

Head over to eBay and place a bid on this Custom Lego Star Wars Airborne Trooper minifig.

CAB Customs has created one of the Jedi who survived Order 66 in minifig form with his Custom Lego Star Wars Kai Hudorra figure. For those unfamiliar with this Jedi, Wookiepedia decribes this Bothan as fighting the Separatists on Toola when Order 66 was issued. His fellow Jedi Master Simms was killed by their clone troopers, but Hudorra was able to flee with Simms's Padawan, Noirah Na, to safety. This highly detail minifig has a custom casted head and a custom casted hilt.
One can never get tired of army building and Rurisk has created an instant troop builder for you with his Custom Lego Star Wars Omega Squad minifigs. The Omega Squad was an elite clone commando unit, and was part of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The members of this unit were brought together after each of their respective squads were killed during action at Geonosis. Unlike most other commando squads, the Omegas wore specialized Night Ops Armor. You can own this elite group by heading over to eBay and bidding on Rurisk's Custom Lego Star Wars Omega Squad minifigs.
It always puzzled me that every Gunship that was made was lacking the side turret pods and toystorycollectables has created these Custom Lego Star Wars Republic Gunship Turrets. This is a great improvement to the Gunships and they look slick mounted to the sides of these troop transports.
Rune Haako was a male Neimoidian and the Settlement Officer of the Trade Federation, as well as a lieutenant to Viceroy Nute Gunray in the years leading up to and through the end of the Clone Wars. This week, CAB customs epitomizes this Trade Federation slime in a minifig with his Custom Lego Star Wars Rune Haako figure. I love the way the face was drawn as it captures the personality of the character in the movie so well.
One of my favorite clone troopers from the Revenge of the Sith movie and Jebstuff has epitomized these troopers with his Custom Lego Star Wars Kayshyyyk Clone troopers. I like the deviation from the BARC trooper mold as we need more of these troopers in different types of fatigues. These figures would make great additions to your Clone Army! Jebstuff has more custom Lego Star Wars clones over on eBay so go check them out!
Darrens5150 has one of my favorite decos for a clone up this week with his Custom Scout Trooper Lego Star Wars minifig. The sculpt of the helmet reminds of my all time favorite Biker Scout style armor and I was very happy to see the evolution of the Biker Scout uniform in the Revenge of the Sith Movie. Darrens5150 has a bunch of custom Lego Star Wars minifigs up this week so be sure to check him out.
The Republic Gunships are one of my favorite modes of transportation as they have the ability to quickly move in and out of battle situations and provide much needed cover while the troops are being deployed or evacuated. SithClone116 has an interesting twist on the troop transport with his Custom Lego Star Wars Stealth Republic Gunship. Sometimes the clones need to do night missions and this Stealth Gunship is the right vehicle so that the clones can go unnoticed. I really like the black and grey brick color scheme and the bubble turrets add a great dimension to the vehicle. Head over to eBay and check out more photos of SithClone116's Custom Lego Star Wars Stealth Republic Gunship.
Darrens5150 has captured the likeness of the great General Kenobi in minifig form with his Custom Lego Star Wars Obi Wan Kenobi in his Clone Commander uniform.

There are a bunch of great Clone Wars custom legos and this figure would make an awesome addition to your collection. Head over to eBay and check it out!
Doing what he does best, CloneArmyCustoms executes Order 66 and delivers for Lego fans all over with his Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Neyo minifig. Commander Neyo of the 91st Recon performs his Clone duty by killing Stass Allie which left speeder bike parts flying in an orange glow from the explosion. CloneArmyCustoms gives Lego fans a chance to relive this scene on a much smaller scale and I have to say that this Clone is very well done. Not only do the decals extend beyond the waste, but the attention to detail on the figure is why collectors will want to add this minifig to their collection. The helmet is also perfectly proportioned. Be sure to head over to eBay and check out more photos of CloneArmyCustoms' Custom Lego Star Wars Commander Neyo minifig.

I am so happy to see customs from the Clone Wars animated series and want to see more! The great thing about new movies and new television series are that it creates a great canvas for customizers to give fans what they want!
A couple weeks, I wrote about a squad of Clones with the same deco and this figure would go great with that. There is only 22 hours left to catch Rurisk's Custom Lego Star Wars Senate Security minifig.
I think you might have picked up on this already but if you have not I am a huge fan of the Clone Wars so I am very excited to see customs from the animated series. Rurisk pays homage to this fallen clone with his Custom Shadow Squadron Matchstick Lego Star Wars Clone minifig. The Shadow Squadron has really cool markings on thier armor and Rurisk does a great job recreating the look on a small scale. If you are not familiar with Matchstick, here is more information on him courtesy of Wookieepedia.com:
"Matchstick's Y-wing grazed a nebray manta, which caused engine failure. After he entered the Battle of theKaliida Nebula, Malevolence's ion cannon fired at him. While attempting to maneuver out of the path of damage his engine gave out and exploded in front of Tag, killing Matchstick and his Radio Intercept Officer, and Tag and his RIO as well. Though he wasn't the only fatality at the Battle of Kaliida, his was the most unexpected and eventful, as he was an expertly trained commander and key member. Aside from Shadow Squadron, Ahsoka Tano was also affected from his tragic death. He did not die in vain however, because his squad managed to destroy the Malevolence's primary weapons and save 60,000 wounded clones"
Head over to eBay and check out more photos of Rurisk's Custom Matchstick minifig!
I don't know why it took my so long to do this but I just added a Custom Lego Star Wars section to the website where you can view all of the eBay listings related to the mini world of Star Wars Lego. If you know of a category that would help you find the customs you are looking for or if you are a customizer and you want me to take a look at your work, please feel free to contact me.
CloneArmyCustoms hits back hard with more of what Clone Wars fans want! A few days ago, I featured his Lietenant Thire, Jek, and Rys squad but today I noticed he also has a Custom Lego Clone Wars Commander Fox up for sale and it is just as impressive. The detailing on the body of the figure is great and the helmet sculpt brings out the Commnader Fox in the figure. Complete with blaster, pistol, and Kama, this Lego Clone Wars Commander Fox is ready to kick some droid minifig hieny. To check out more photos or to purchase this item, head over to eBay and check out CloneArmyCustoms Custom Lego Clone Wars Commander Fox minifig.
Being a fan of the new Clone Wars Animated series, I am happy to see customizers paying homage to this new Star Wars format and CloneArmyCustoms has made a great squad from the premier episode in the series with his Custom Lego Clone Wars LieutenantThire, Yoda, and Clone Squad minifigs. Although Yoda is not custom, he really tried to stay true to the series when he made these minifigs so here is a rundown of the Clones you will get:
Early in the war Thire, serving as a lieutenant, was assigned alongside his troops, Jek and Rys, to escort Jedi Master Yoda to a diplomatic mission to Rugosa. When their transport was shot down by Separatist frigates, Yoda and the troopers landed on the moon's surface in the escape pod. The clones helped Yoda to get past an entire battalion of battle droids, set by Assaj Ventress to intercept him, in order to secure a treaty with ToydarianKing Katuunko. Thire was wounded by a super battle droid during the mission, but still continued to fight alongside Yoda until their task was successfully completed.
At the beginning of the Clone Wars Jek had a relatively uneventful posting in the Senate district. Probably because of the sedate confines of Senate and diplomatic escort duty Jek became obsessed with weapons as an outlet. He was an expert in all manner of small arms blaster weaponry, and had even gone so far as requisitioning and obtaining heavy weapons even though they weren't part of his mission requirements.
Ever wonder how Captain Rex gets around when he is trying to inspire his troops to defeat General Grievous and his Separatist Droid Army? GoodSchmoe has an idea with his Custom Lego Star Wars Captain Rex Minifig and Speederbike concept. To be more aerodynamic, Captain Rex has left his Pauldron at home and is ready for some streamlined action. My favorite vehicles in the Star Wars universe have been the Speeder Bikes. I remember when I was 8 and watched Return of the Jedi (the first Star Wars Movie I can actually remember watching in theater) and seeing the Speeder Bike chase and thinking that was the coolest thing. I could imagine this Speeder Bike working in both land and space as Captain Rex hops back and forth between Republic Attack Cruisers. If you are interested in owning this unique Clone Wars custom, head over to eBay and bid on GoodSchmoe's Custom Lego Star Wars Captain Rex Minifig and Speederbike.
I do have to give credit to the Lego Star Wars customizers for coming up with original ideas that are very well executed using a very small canvas to work with and jv2402's Custom Lego Star Wars Mandalorian Assault Warrior is no exception. This figure looks like a mash up between Jango and Boba Fett on steroids. First, the helmet is a unique design and is painted to resemble Jango Fett's armor. He has given this minifig extra shoulder protection that flows very nicely into the jetpack. The kama is a very nice touch and helps soften up the figure. To see more photos of jv2402's Custom Lego Star Wars Mandalorian Assault Warrior minifig, head over to eBay!
