This was a great project everyone.  Especially considering that there wasn't a front page mention, there were a lot of entries for this.  Really cool seeing so many takes on this character, and thanks Phruby for pushing this idea.  It was very nice to have other people showing their versions of Rykrof.

Thanks everyone.  So what is the next Group Project going to be?

 :P

Sorry for not getting my figure posted.
I intended to do this Thursday night, ya know, last minute....

Well I get home thursday and I dont have internet casuse my neighbor cut my line when he extended his driveway.
YES... AGAIN!!!!!
Last time my neigbor next to the cable hub extended his... in december. I was out for almost a month.
This time the guy across the street from him extends his, and ZAP, I'm out.
So I've been dealling with that issue all weekend, back and forth, whose responsible, etc... Comcast says 7 to 10 days to get e another line. Last time they said that it was 23 days.

I am having no luck with neighbors this year.. First internet, then the tree, and now internet again...
The joys of home ownership....

Brent, cool Mutant Rykroff, and Rip, i love the vintage one. Very cool idea.
Well, i'll get mine up hopefully by the end of the week.

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but I wanted to post where I am at with this... before I show pics of the WIP I should give a little of the concept.  When  Chewie started showing images of Rykrof in the Rebellion, my brain assumed that he siwtched sides somewhere around Order 66.   And since he would be a marked man, Rykrof would need a foolproof disguise to evade the clone.  Inspired by Mad Martigan's disguise in willow, I present Rykrof: Clone Escape...





Basically I need to smooth the dremmel work on the chest and then repaint.  I debated about sahving him, but I think the beard makes it funny.

I love that disguised version, because I'm a sucker for accessories, and the wig is just awesome. You know, the concept has a very innocent George Lucas-esque humor touch to it, I think, reminding me of Han Solo and some of his heroic blunders in the OT (i.e., getting caught on the Death Star comm [EPIV], getting caught by C-3PO, kissing Leia [EPV], and getting caught by a scout trooper by stepping on a twig in 'Jedi').

Cool concept and I appreciate the hard work!

Hilarious idea for a custom.  Ha Ha... really this is funny. 

BTW, here's the latest Rykrof I made, wish I had done it in time for the group project -



head - SAGA Endor Soldier
torso - OTC General Madine
arms - SAGA Lt. Faytonni
gloves - OTC General Madine
legs - SAGA Lt. Faytonni

Okay....Okay, I know Ive already posted my entry and this group project is long over. BUt Ive got my final product, and Im posting it now.



I liked the bounty hunter disgiuse, but the Rykroff that I really wanted was one in a Republic uniform. and since Danni Faytonni figures dont grow on trees, I had to improvise. ;)

The original Idea for this came from the Findswomans Clone dress uniforms. I have to give credit where its due. ( thanks Finds) She had one clone that wasnt like the others. Which I assumed was an officer, so I swiped the idea. ;D

The body is from a leftover Capt. Antilles fig with a Veers coat bottom, and of course a Rykroff head.

Darth_Ennis:  I really like the choice of colors for this custom. They really pop out at you. They fit so nicely with the tone that Chewie's photo novel has set. Agaian, nice job!!! ;D

Wow, that is really good Ennis!  That body for a Rykrof never even crossed my mind... damn, if I had thought about that I would have bought several more Antilles figures. Nice job and thanks for showing it!

Chewie, I am sorry if i missed this in the past, but who is Rykrof bassed off of. Is it you as a star wars character?
I ask casue i'm working on the card for mine. And if its you, i need you to send me a picture to use.

Great figure Ennis. I still have to post mine, but i cant upload them yet.
