Sandtrooper Spotlight: Smell what the Phenix is Cooking?
This one is for the Empire!Our custom pages also saw an update from Walt "Phenix" Crowley in our forums, and am I sad I didn't share these custom carded figures with you Troopers sooner! There is nothing like actually seeing you in an action figure of your own, and there's no doubt Phenix makes it happen as well as anyone on the Internet. Got an idea you'd like to see come to life? Login and see if Walt can help! United We Find.
