Droids Customs: Baller move

Back in October I announced the next batch of bubbles I'd be ordering. This was after multiple posting on Facebook asking for feedback, which augmented my own feelings about which characters would be coolest.

Near the bottom of my list of choices... right above either Bespin Guard, was AT-AT Commander. I mean, all respect to Julian Glover who is fantastic, the figure just kinda sucks. The helmet is too small and he has this huge featureless chest plate. He's just a wall of gray. As far as exciting actions figures go, AT-AT Commander isn't one of them.

But nearly every time I posted for feedback or even just posted a new Custom, I had this one guy ask "When are you going to do AT-AT Commander?" This has gone on for years. Then the guy DMed me, asking when I'd do him. This was in 2020. And I was like "I don't know... at least 8 or 9 figures away." So he made an offer - If I'd guarantee him one, he'd get me the figures. In my head I'm thinking "Yeah sure... this will happen" but still I told him that'd be compelling motivation to make him.

About a year and a half later the guy asks how many figures I need. I reply 20. Then forget all about it.

At the end of December the guy asks for my address. And then these arrive:

Since the batch of bubbles I ordered was still being made (apparently the cold damp weather of Leeds, UK make the process take a while), I reached out to see if my guy could add AT-AT Commander. He affirmed.

So I'm happy to announce that the next figure I'll be making after the bubbles arrive, to my total surprise, is AT-AT Commander! And props to the AT-AT Commander focus collector who made a total baller move to make that happen. So hear that all you B-Wing Pilot, Bespin Guard, Lobot, Ugnaught, and Imperial Commander focus collectors out there? If you really want me to make a Droids custom you got your roadmap!
