I believe we have decided on Original Fan-Fic Aliens for March and Imperials for April. :)

Cool.  I changed the title and will sticky the thread...  :)

Technically March (month 11) hasn't started but I've made a cast of head that I created out of sculpy.  We'll see if this one goes anywhere or not...

It kind of reminds me of the shapeshifting Aliens in the 5th Element.

Well right now it is a bizarre looking hunk of plastic resin that was sculpted to look like an alien head.  Like I said, we'll see if I can make this look like anything but since its fan fiction I can make it look like whatever I want :)

I've got some time this month and I picked up a "weird" alien figure for fodder for this challenge.

I have no idea what this guy is, just a green monster figure from the Salvation Army (a good place for cheap/ junky figures for fodder). 

Should be fun to see what everyone comes up with this month!

Are you trying to say that you think it should be "Expanded Universe" Aliens and not "Fan Fiction" Aliens?  Otherwise, I have no idea what you are talking about...  ???

If that's what you are talking about, I still think it would be "Fan Fiction" Aliens since the figures are created by us.  "Expanded Universe" Aliens would be stuff like Bothans or Nohgri or other aliens mentioned in the EU but never made as figures.  This challenge is larger than just "EU" aliens, since people are free to invent whatever the heck they want!

I'm trying to get my GP and MCC done early this month so I can work on my Micromen figures. My fan fic alien is done. I read somewhere that you couldn't use a star wars head for this figure. It had to be something completely different. Well this is what I came up with.

His name is Ragu and is from the planet Anime. People from his planet are typically short with large heads, blue or green or purple hair and sometimes have eyes that take up two-thirds of their head. They are known for making extreme facial expressions to express emotion.

Ragu lost his arm thru a short lived experiment with the dark side of the force. He was trying to resurrect his dead wife thru a technique he found on a remote abandoned Sith fortress. He has since brought himself back from the dark side but still searches for a way to become whole again.

His only force ability is to throw force lightening. This is a fairly common ability among most Anime. Some are even good enough to compact it into a lightening ball.

The torso, left arm and right fist are from a old Xyber-9 figure. The legs are Zutton and the right arm is ep1 c-3po. The vest is cantina han. The head is Lilith from the Darkstalkers line.

Aww, such a cute lil alien. He looks so innocent. Till the force lightening!

SO this is Fan Fic aliens, not EU aliens...RIght?  SO it has to be an original idea for an alien, and not
a vong or barabel... etc.

Just clarifying as i may try and create one, depending on the criteria.
Sorry if i missed it, but i didnt catch it on the first 3 pages.

From my understanding it was suppost to be something new and not EU. I read somewhere you couldn't use a star wars head. But then again you could make a Vong without using a star wars head.

Mine is an attempt to get rid of parts.
