I changed my mind, I do like the alien idea. I've got a very cool idea for mine. As for the Imps., I think April is good. It gives me time to get me some fodder! ;D I hope that maybe in the future do like a fleet trooper thingy. Sorry, I have a big vocabulary, but I'm not very good with those words. Since all the versions to date suck, we could customize our own. Maybe this could be May or June? That's just my two cents.

We just did Rebels back in December though. And that is more character specific so it would be better suited for a Group Project. Maybe you could sugget that to Phruby when it comes time to pick the next topic.

The other idea is one a friend and I were throwing around at a customizing party.
2.  Pimp My Gonk

With the new Gonks, it would be fun to see what different types of Gonks we could come up with.  (plus I love the droid  ;D )


Now I think that would be a fun project!!

The next group project will return to a single character again instead of a grouping of characters.

Any Idea on what that will be Phruby? Personally I beleive that Dash Rendar is sadly in need of an updated fig. I'm planning on tackling this one myself but im not sure where to begin.

AS far as my idea for the dio project, I was thinking of something along the lines of the outlander club only a little more seedy and smaller. I may do it once i finally get settled as far as the my current housing situation goes.

I was kind of hoping that we'd settled on Aliens.  Even though the new challenge hasn't technical begun, I started making some custom heads from sculpy last night.  I'm going to try casting them into plastic and make a few aliens.

I think we did settle on Aliens for Month 11 (March) and Imperial Troops for Month 12 (April).

I think Phruby and Ennis are talking about the next "Group Project" FFURG v. JD (like the Clone Wars that is going on now...

Young luke, Aged obi, transition clone/stormie mixes, rebel troop precursors.... that kind of thing  :-\

Yes, yes, yes, yes! I could totally work with that. We should do that, sort of a preview of the new Live-Action series. That could be really cool. I think all of these ideas are great. (Especially the Pimp-My-Gonk. LOL! ;D)

Okay, it must be a newbie thing... I can't figure the difference between the group project and the Monthly challenge.  Can someone explain please  ::)

Things where a little reversed this month.

Typically group projects focused on just one character only (ie Dash Rendar) while MCC does a category of fan fic characters (ie. Cantina Aliens). This month since MCC was doing any diarama, the group project took over the character category and did any Clone Wars TV show character except clones themselves.

The next group project will focus exclusively on one or two characters typically with lots of reference pictures. We then design our version of that character using the reference pictures and lots of work in progress shots. Maybe we will do a verses group project with FFURG again. They make one character, we make a different character.

MCC will focus on any figure you come up with that fits into the month's theme.

That explains it a bit better.  So for the MCC (whether verus FFURG or just ourselves) does anyone actually declare a winner :)

The JD vs FFURG thing was great Id love to do that again. Even though it took nearly 3 months for me to post anything. My problem with that is for some reason these computers wont let me post any pics on FFURG, which is why i never got to post my Snoova. If we do the vs thing is there any way someone can post pics for me on FFURG?

I'll post pictures for you. There is never really a declared winner in those contests. Its just to have fun and get as many people to partipate as possible.

But anyway, sorry for the hijack. Lets decide on the MCC. Are we doing Aliens, Cantina aliens or Imperials?
