I just went out this weekend and splurged. It's been a LOOOOONG time sice I've been able to do this, but I went and bought an INSANE amount of custom fodder. I LOVE MY NEW JOB!!! :D

So I'm ready for just about anything now.

I threw my lot in with Episode I, but I'm also kinda hoping that Snipers win because I have an excellent idea that I want to do for it.

I've been customnising other stuff all weekend, and after almost a year and a half of SW customisers block, I think I'm finally back in the groove. The custom ide3as just wont stop now. It feels great!. :D

Thanks for the vote of confidence Chewie. :wink:

W :shock: W!! I'm actually shocked that people are actually voting for my idea. I thought I was the only one who cares about Episode I. :P

Well if we end up with a tie, we'll probably go with EPI figures I think since "pod racers" kind of falls into that category... and between the two of those, there's 7 votes.

Ok... let's call the voting over... unless there's an objection we're going to make it EPISODE ONE PODRACER PILOTS/CREW WORKERS/SPECTATORS.

The reason for this, is we have a tie between mini-rigs and Podracer pilots, with Episode One characters coming in close.

Podracer Pilots falls under Episode One, but for the folks that wanted Episode One characters, we'll stretch the rules a bit to cover more than Podracer Pilots - it can also be crew or spectators...

Since we lost about two weeks in June, we'll leave this open through the end of July and there will be TWO WINNERS.

I really liked this theme because there's a lot of room for variety, as well as customs from this month can really go into so many various dioramas if people don't specifically have podrace scene dioramas. So, I made 5 customs for our 22nd customizing challenge -


Trian Bowns - Boonta Eve podrace spectator. He just likes to attend in the chances of meeting Sebulba's Twi'lek slaves (always had a fetish for blue skin).

Image

head - Tantive IV Rebel
torso - TAC Myoom Oonith
arms - Comic Pack Hett
tunic - TAC Myoom Oonith
legs - ROTS Count Dooku
scarf - TGC Sam Elliot



Huedo Gorsmaggle - Boonta Eve podrace spectator who is also a Mos Espa textile merchant.

Image

head - POTF2 Hammerhead
hat - POTF2 Rancor Keeper
torso - Indiana Jones Sallah
arms - Indiana Jones Sallah
hands - POTF2 Hammerhead
tunic - Indiana Jones Sallah



Braffel Stor'kessel - Boonta Eve Podrace gambler (always bets on Sebulba). He's known for mistreating his slaves.

Image

head - POTJ Tessek
torso - Indiana Jones Cairo Thug
biceps - Indiana Jones Cairo Thug
forearms - Indiana Jones Sallah (from Sallah's biceps)
wrist/hands - POTJ Tessek
legs - TAC Quinlan Vos



Teedle B'ilimissir - Boonta Eve podrace spectator, and also slave of Braffel Stor'kessel (hates Sebulba and his master). The podraces are his only chance at entertainment, so he rarely misses them.

Image

head - OTC Greedo
torso - ROTS PLo Koon
arms - TAC Po Nudo
hands - OTC Greedo
tunic - ROTS Count Dooku
legs - ROTS Plo Koon



Matilda Iceburn - Boonta Eve podrace gambler who likes to bet on the underdogs.

If it's Podrace spectators, i have the parts of a figure i was gonna paint and put together ages ago sitting in a jar and this would be the perfect motivation to put him together.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

^ Sounds good... if I have time, I'll probably come up with a pilot or two as well. Maybe even a modified dewback pulling a podracer (doubtful, but it would be cool).

Here is my Gotal podrace spectator...I'm thinking of repainting the vest, but I'm not sure which color would flow best - any suggestions?
