Custom Toy of the Day- Holiday Trooper!

It has been a while since I have customized an actual action figure. Most of the toys I have made of recent have been all vinyl designer toys, so I decided to try my hand at a good ole fashioned 12" action figure. Now the base of this toy is made from a 12" Hasbro Snow Trooper from the Star Wars Collector's Series toys. I initially got the sweater from a Michaels Arts and Craft store in the Christmas ornaments. I couldn't help getting the sweater and had first planned to make a Masters of the Universe holiday custom. The sweater was way too big. I started digging through parts and found most of the pieces of the Snow Trooper. A few coats of paint, a sweater, and some festive decor have helped change this guy into the Holiday Trooper! This guy will become a staple in our Christmas decorations every year. He'll be like an elf on a shelf without all of the stupid shenanigans. There are also more pictures of this piece below the important messages below. 

Recently, I was being filmed for a convention documentary called, Unconventional. You can see it here. While you are at it, you should check out Johnathan Paul's other video work here. 

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. 

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

I have opened a shop to sell my toys. Here's the link:

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 show is The pilot episode, where Jeff and Cory break down the Pilot Episode in TV series. 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:

If you like what we have, be sure to tell your friends! We need your word of mouth to help us keep making shows!

And now, pictures!

The Holiday Trooper is an original work by Taylor Lymbery in 2014. This piece is also shown on my deviantart page and my figurerealm page
