The Force Is Strong With Him!

Elias and I came across this post on Action Figure Empire and we asked if we could post it on our blog too! When Elias saw a fellow Star Wars collector who shared his name and who was in need of my assistance, we jumped at the chance to offer a hand. We'll be sending some custom action figures his way and we have a feeling you all will too. We've been informed that he'd like a version of himself as a Padawan. We checked and we couldn't find an appropriate body for the job. I'll look around on ebay, and see if I can find one. If anyone has a body for the job and wants to volunteer for the project, his picture is below. If not I'll try and locate one. If there is one thing I know about the customizing community it's the desire of the community to get involved in projects such as this. Therefore, I figured I'd get the word out to as many of you as possible.

I'm not taking a collection just sending something in and passing on the word. I tried to obtain requests as to what he wanted, but I was only told he likes Anakin and you can never have enough clone troopers or any other army builders. If I hear anything else, I'll let you all know. In the meantime, post what was sent that way we can reduce the doubles and so Eli knows what's on its way to him. I'm going to post a link at my blog that goes to this thread and I'll ask Action Figure Empire to pass the link to Eli.

If anyone wants to front page this it would be cool.

Today I want to turn this blog's attention to the story of a young Star Wars action figure collector named Eli. Eli is madly passionate about all things Star Wars and Star Wars toys. He's an outgoing little guy with a great big smile and he's also into arts and crafts, and World War 2. Eli is has been diagnosed with a rare life-threatening disease called Severe Aplastic Anemia, a disease of the bone marrow. Severe Aplastic Anemia also affects the immune system making it difficult for those who have it to be out in public. You can imagine how this makes it hard to get out and do things, visit with people, or even shop for Star Wars toys. We here at Action Figure Empire call for your support for young Eli, a fan, and a collector who needs all the support he can get right now. We ask that you donate one or more, Star Wars toys of any kind to Eli. You can Include a message of your own to Eli if you wish as well. Eli will be delighted to receive your generous donations. Please send them to:

Action Figure Empire
114 Oak Street Apt. D
Maybrook, NY 12543

From there we at AFE will then forward your generous donations to Eli. AFE is proud to create and participate in the official Toys for Eli Toy Drive. Please take a moment to contribute to Eli's Star Wars action figure collection. Every donation you give helps!

We give the Official Action Figure Empire Salute to Eli and his family.

Thank you for reading this and thank you so much for your donations!

May The Force Be With You All!

I made a Jedi Padawan for another young collector on the Make A Wish list a while back. You can use the Anakin Jedi or Zett Jukasa body, works great.
