Group Project XI - The Rykrof Project
« on: February 24, 2006, 10:01 AM »
I mentioned this idea over in Chewie's figure thread but here it is for your consideration. What if we as a group made our own takes on Chewie's Rykrof character? You can make him in any outfit you want as long as it can be identified as Rykrof.

Once we are all done, we can send them to Chewie to include in a photonovel about Rykrof getting cloned and he having to fight his way out of the cloning facility. There could be the twist of do we know if the original Rykroff survives?

What do you think?

That's actually a very good idea. I have like 10 of the Rykrof heads so I'd really like to do that. It's just... there are so many MCC ideas floating around, I don't know which one I'd like to see finished. But if we go Rykrof, I'm in, I'm way in, I'm in so deep that the presure is breaking every bone in my body! lol! ;D

Well I think it's a great idea!!  Of course I'm going to say that though.  But in all honesty, I really am appreciativet that the idea would even come up.  That's very thoughtful Phruby.

If some people want to do that, great - I'd love to see what designs other customizers come up with.  And if someone wanted me to make some sort of comedy photonovel, I could probably do that too.  I could use a few if people sent me one of their figures plus I have 10 or so versions I could use too.  Might be really goofy but all in good fun.

Alderaan Gaurdian, if you have any of those spare heads and want to sell them, please let me know.

Well, I'm all for it. The only problem for me is finding that head. I think Chewie bought them all. ;D

I think we are going to need someone to make casts for everyone to use :)

Alderaan Gaurdian could sell us some heads. Maybe Glassman could cast some heads for us.

Don't you love how I always volunteer Greg for things.  ;)

I don't know, my Dad's the collector, most of them he bought for me to keep in the box, I only have 8, I rounded up because I wasn't sure on the number. I could try to use my Jedi Mind Trick on the WEAK minded father of mine but I wouldn't count on it. I could probably get 1 or 2 to sell. He's really strict when it comes to trading and selling. In the past 3 months, he's spent $1500 on figs for me alone so maybe I should edit my fist post. Sorry for the confusion guys.

Microman Rykrof, good idea there.  I guess I need to come up with some ideas here... BTW for reference, here are some versions of him that I've made -

This is the original version that showed up in the first few photonovels... these are in chronological order of how he has or will appear in the series.  I'm sure I'll make at least 10 or so more -

already started....just can't decide if I can figure out a way to keep the head articulated...you see as I was boiling (not the endor trooper) the body the peg broke off and now I cant get it out without cracking the torso...and I really am not th best at that well with out wrecking the torso...
Cheers!

You can take a Han and paint a beard on him.

Or do a clean shaven Rykrof with a Han head might even work... but it might be tough to make it not look like Han... you could always do a really old Rykrof (assuming he lives that long) - here's what his dad looks like -



That's a custom though I might work on a bit to make it look less like Dodonna.

No Mercy Joe - You could maybe use what's left of the Rykrof head you have and dremel into it to make it a ball joint head and put it on an AT-TE Gunner body or something.

There are also lots of these Rebels available on ebay for pretty cheap -

Looks like Rykrof's (pimp) daddy has the same sleeves as our boy.
