I nominate Elias Fulton of "Customs for the Kid" for "Custom Action Figure Artist of the Year". At only 15 years old, he has created some of the coolest 100% sculpted figures this year. Although he has been customizing for 8 years already, this year he has been firing on all cylinders. His work has already been featured by Disney and Lucasfilm at Celebration Anaheim and he was recently interviewed by Fantha Tracks last month about his Star Wars custom action figure artwork. What I appreciate most about this customizer is that he shares all of his techniques and recipes with his audience on his YouTube show "Customizing The Clone Wars".

The two pieces that impressed me the most this year were his Clone Wars "Old Daka" action figure and his Clone Wars "Miraj Scintel" action figure.

His Star Wars - The Last Jedi  "Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo" and Star Wars Rebels "Season 3 - Sabine Wren" were also extremely impressive.

His work can be viewed on his blog:

Elias of "Customs for the Kid" closed down 2018 with one truly challenging 100% sculpted custom action figure. Definitely one of the premiere Star Wars action figure custom artists that only makes me double down on his nomination.


Here is a video of his work:
