Taylor's Toy Wednesday's DIY Custom- Ree Yees!

Ree Yees Custom by Taylor Lymbery
I absolutely love the characters from Jabba's palace! They are some of the craziest and kookiest looking aliens around. One such of those characters is this guy here. His name, Ree Yees comes from "three eyes". Ree Yees finds it very hard to shop for glasses in a galaxy far far away... 

Here's a little on Ree Yees:
Ree-Yees was a male Gran Criminal from Kinyen who suffered from a recessive genetic mutation, uncommon among Gran, which caused his hands to be deformed.

Ree-Yees enjoyed visiting other planets via Star Tours, and often brought his custom three eyed camera to take pictures, despite flash photography not being allowed.
Ree-Yees was convicted of murder on Kinyen, and was in hiding on Tatooine as a member of Jabba Desilijic Tiure's court. He was an alcoholic, and was often seen associating with Tessek. Ree-Yees was assigned the task of taking care of Jabba's Frog-dog pet Bubo.
Just like the vintage Kenner Star Wars action figure, this custom comes with a golden rifle of sorts. I had to make it! He is made from a Creatology vinyl blank action figure and has three points of articulation- head and arms move. He looks pretty good next to my customs of  Bib and Klaatu

 Now, I've got some important updates, so more pictures will be at the end of this posting. Enjoy the pics. I've got to get back to illustrating comic books! :)

I do have a table for the Sci-Fi Expo on February 9-10th. I'll be there with some new work to sell,my pin-up girl posters, the newest issue of Xenex the Bug Man and custom toys. Jeff will be there with me selling some Marvindog media merchandise and taking toy memory recordings! Stop by, say,"hi", and show your support. I hope to see you there!

I have all Xenex the Bug Man comic books available for print on demand. You can see that listing here on my store's tab for comic books. 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
