How about a Star Wars-style super hero? Image a comic book hero that fights crime in the underworld streets of Coruscant.

I'm all for the Vong, but I always am. ;D Pimp style sounds cool.

BUt my idea is sort of a Monster Mash type of thing in a similar vein to Quasars idea. Take SW and combine it with another 80's toy property. Kinda like Skeletor as a Yuzzan vong, or Snake eyes as a jedi. Something like that.

Wasn't straight-up Imperial Forces slated for an earlier month? I could go with the Human-SW crossovers, too.

Maybe this is too broad an umbrella (and I have no idea if any other ideas were already agreed upon), but would a generic "Elseworlds/Infinties/Universe Cross-Over" work?

And I don't mean Infinities within the SW universe.  So, for example, you could do Obi Wan as a knight of the round table, Tarkin as a German WWII officer, Boba Fett as Batman or Snake-Eyes as a Jedi and Storm Shadow as a Sith.

Thoughts?

Man this is a ton of ideas, which is actually good to see.  I love how broad we make these usually.

Problem with OT animated, is that most of us do not collect animated, or use it for customs.

how about some sort of slave workers? they could be any spicies and be imperial slaves or hutt slaves or slaves of just about any type of war lord or slaves of a sith master, they could even be the yuzhonvong slaves with all the growths on them. just a thought.....

Actually the Slave Workers is one of the best ideas I've seen in a while for one of these... so many things would qualify for this... spice mine slaves, droid slaves, hutt dancer girl slaves, vong slaves, etc.

I think I'm going to have to go with Quazar for this Challenge. Maybe "Real Life Inspired SW Customs."

You would have so many different options that almost every customizer could do it without going out of their way for specific fodder.

In fact, if anyone hasn't guessed, my "Disaster on Coruscant" series of customs and upcoming PN is loosely based upon events taht occured in Mogadishu, Somalia in OCtober 1993.

Slaves are a great Idea. There is a very broad spectrum to work with. I think I like this idea better than my own.

I'd vote for slaves! 

I could certainly use slaves in my upcoming photonovel. I just finished Diva Shaliqua in my own thread so that would be a good entry (too bad its too early :) ).  Anyway, I'd love to take another crack at one.

The other ideas also sound like fun but I'd like to be able to stretch my customs time so that I can participate in the group project and work towards finishing the next segment of the Photonovel.
