Group Ideas Thread For Figure Questions- Deep Sea Danger!
« on: January 25, 2006, 08:10 PM »
I'm planning for an aquatic themed line of customs that will debut in the fall (yes, I actually plan things out that far ahead ;) ) and have begun attempting to compile a list of all of the suitable fodder for otherworldly undersea life.

The storyline behind the upcoming custom line is something like this (imagine the following passage in the "Movie Trailer Guy"'s voice :D ):

On Aquos, a world deep in the outer rim almost completely covered by water, the inhabitants (in their wooden-hulled hover boats!) are being menaced by an unknown threat from beneath the sea (although our British friends might find this threat somewhat familiar ;) ). At the request of help from the planet's ruling council, the New Republic Intellicence Agency sends Galactic Intelligence: Joint Operations Elite's aquatic warfare specialist, the Quarren code-named Deep Six, to investigate and neutralize the threat. Deep Six has faced both the Galactic Empire's Seatroopers and The Brotherhood Of The Serpent's Hydro-Vipers and been victorious, but he's about to face the deadliest living thing beneath the waves...


So far I've come up with these aquatic beasties:

"King Kong" snakefish (don't have one yet :( )

"Dino Valley" small pleisiosaurus (got about 5 of them right now :) )

"Dino Valley" Luiripidon (never seen one in a store :( )

"Pirate Expeditions" squid (got one :) ), large octopus, and shark (still need these 2)

"Episode I" various sea creatures (got multiples of 'em all :D )

"Waterworld" translucent fish pack-in accessories (don't have any yet :( )

various solid vinyl sea creatures from the company that makes toy animals for zoos/museums/Discovery Channel Stores (I have a pair of awsome deep sea fish that have glow in the dark accents!)

"McFarlane Dragons" Water Clan 2 Dragon (waiting for the enevitable clearance before picking up this guy ;) )

"Alien Resurrection" Swimming Alien (don't have one of these anymore :( )

"G.I. Joe" Hydro-Viper devilfish (stingrays)


Here's where you come in: I need the customizing community here at Jedidefender to put their collective heads together and come up with other lines' sea creature accessories to add to the list (and my want list in the Trade Section ;) ).

There are some guidelines though, they can't be just regular everyday-looking fish. They have to have an "alien" quality to them, think deep sea bioluminesent predators, or chitinous crab monsters. They can be real-life fish, but they have to be really outlandish looking. I'd like to stick to a smaller size if possible just so I don't have to deal with any Leviathan-sized beasts since they'd beharder to display n a shelf, maybe a max length of 6" or 7"?

Looking forward to seeing the results :)

Thanks :D

GIjoe Undertow comes with a silver Baracuda.

What about the War Whale and attack squid from the Neo MOTU series?

I considered both of these optios, but the barracuda is too recognizable as an earthly animal and the MOTU ones are cyborgs :(

This challenge is harder than I thought.

Very cool, what a large project you have ahead of you.  I'm impressed with how well and far in advance you plan things out.  Looking forward to this.  If you are able to post a few "before" pics, maybe we can offer some more ideas.   :)

In the new Ice Age 2 line from Disney, there's a pack of the main charachters and two prehistoric sea creatures packed in, that could add to this project.

The picture kept, will remind me...

I saw them a few weeks ago, and unfortunately they are not usable as-is due to their goofy smiling faces :(  When they hit clearance, however, I may snag a set and re-work their faces to look a bit more menacing ;)
