Monthly Customizing Challenge - Month 11: Fan-Fic Aliens
« on: February 20, 2006, 12:50 PM »
We're nearing the end of Month 9-10 (custom playset/dioramas) - what would everyone like to try for next month?  I have a couple of ideas, if anyone else has some ideas feel free to share them.  Hopefully we can have a consensus by Feb 28.

- fan fiction cantina drunks
- fan fiction Separatist droid
- fan fiction new alien species

 :P

I'd like to do another Army building month, Imperial Officers maybe?

But if the consensus is going towards new aliens then that's ok with me too. :)

I'd be up for "Imperial Officers" since I have a few long over-due things I need to finish anyway...  :P

Two for new alien species, two for Imperials!  How about Alien Imperials!   ;)

The Emperor would never allow it.

I think I'd prefer Alien species.  However, I'm pretty flexible. 

Since I'm (relatively) new here.  Have Jedi already been done to death?  I've got a Jedi character (or two) that I'm thinking about working on and it would be nice to kill two birds with one stone :)

i think we should do the Imperial officers, but since i'm new i guess i could go both ways. but if we were to do a new alien species, what fodder could we use without it looking like the original?

Yeah, the Emperor would never allow Imperial aliens to be officers that for sure.  Thrawn was about as far as that went.

I think it should probably be alien species.  I kind of like the cantina drunks idea some for whatever reason so I might combine that, all I'd have to do is give the alien a cup to hold.

For Jedi, that would be fine too if it's a new alien species.  A new alien species that is a Jedi could be really cool.  Ultimately we're really flexible with these.

As for how would you do a new alien without it looking like the original?  There's different ways to do that... maybe using some parts from non-Star Wars lines... like this ugly thing I made a while back -

Yeah, it's a Sith Demon that I'm going to rework someday for the Rykrof series.  The body from it was a Coleman Trebor Jedi figure, and the head and hands were from the Jersey Devil from the Cryptozoology line that TRU used to carry.

Of course if we did do imperials, I have six rots Tarkins I found at Target last week for a $1 each that I could use.

Even though I've never entered this awesome tradition, I have been working kinda sorta on some imperial customs for a while, so I could actually probably enter this time!

Aliens is a good idea, but difficult to achieve.  Where do you get the fodder to make original aliens? 

And don't buy any of that EU crap about the Emperor hating aliens.  Clearly he has no trouble with guys like Mas Amedda, a very loyal follower who was obviously in on a great deal of his schemes.  EU sucks!
