    As mentioned at the last meeting, the first customizer's meeting(need a name here) will be held at my house on Saturday, February 23. Anyone that is interested, please PM me for directions.

    We will begin about 1pm. If you have extra figures that you would like to use, please bring them. We do not have a specific figure that we will be working on this time, but any suggestions before the meeting are greatly appreciated. We will be showing techniques on how to make the customs. From there, we will start brainstorming what we would like to do for future gatherings.

    We hope to have a good turn out, and as I said, everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there.

    I'm just beginning to get into customizing. I've done a few cards and even 2 nascar costoms for friends. I don't know if I'll be able to make it to the meeting because I live so far away, but I wanted to suggest making a "Corvette Summer - Luke" figure. lol.

    Names:

    Watto's Customs
    Imperial Collision and Repair
    Indy Customizing and Diaramas
    Parts n Pieces
    The Creature Shop
    Indy Customs Figures and Scenes

    ............ Ok the ball is rolling.

    I, like Chad, would love to do some customs, but I am afraid the distance and meeting days would prevent it. Perhaps some instructional videos are in order?

    Xizor, JediMasterDan likes those names, but wants more ideas.

    For those wanting to make the meeting, when PM'ing JediMasterDan, please send from where you will be departing so JediMasterDan can give the proper coordinates.

    That is all.

    Everyone who comes to the meeting will get an interactive CD-ROM that I put together about a year ago. It has all the stuff you need to know about customizing.
    I am planning to do a follow up CD when time permits.

    The CD only works on regular PC Based Systems, NOT MAC's.

    Here are some names:
    - Hoosier Junkyard's
    - Indy Custom Coalition
    - Indy Custom Systems
    - "Parts! You are parts, you are made from a bunch of freaking parts, so don't give me some sorry a** parts story." Too long! :)
    - Custom Club... I am out of ideas.

    Hey I will be attending!!

    With my schedule being like it is, I might be about an hour late or so. However, I do want to try and do some customizing. Yeah, that makes me a rookie. But I do have some great ideas and things I want to do. JedimasterDan, I will need directions coming from downtown.

    PEACE

    Wal-Mart is Greenwood has the folowing figures. Lando, Jar Jar Binks, R4-Q9, Tessek, Obi-Wan Training Gear, Shmi Skywalker, Queen Amidala Decoy, Fx-7, Imperial Officer, Rebel Troopers.
    The pegs are overflowing with these figures. So if you need any better get down there and grab them up before they are all gone.

    The Toys-R-Us has POTJ Tusken Raiders, Coruscant Guards, Porkins, Sebulba, Mas Ameeda, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Sabe, Bespin Guard, Ketwol, Duros, and a few others.

    The KB-ToyWorks by SOuther Plaza next to the Target has many E1 Deluxe figures and Darth Mauls for cheap prices.

    Just thought I would let you know if case yo need some figures to do some customizing on.
