So the winning theme is The Old Republic!

For this Yakfinities Customizing Challenge, there are going to be three random entries picked that will receive a prize. Here are the prizes, in no particular order:

1 - $25 Shopping Spree at (Courtesy of K&C Collectibles)

2 - $40 Shopping Spree at (courtesy of Yak_Den)

3 - Choice of three Legacy Figures (courtesy of Yak_Chewie)

The first winner will get their choice of prize, then the second place forum member gets to pick what they want, then the third forum member whose name is drawn gets what is left.

So far we already have a few entries, the first two are by darth_sidious and the third one is one I just finished up:




Good luck everyone, this should be another fun one!

:wink: here are a few..........

-Republic Soldier, other than a Clone Trooper from any era.

-Teched out Bounty Hunter, Bounty Hunter that relies heavily on technology, gadets, weapons etc.....

-Hutt Gangters, customize those old Jabba figures in to a new devious Hutt.

-New Spieces, take those obscure heads or special heads you got from Tri-gate and make a new spieces figure thats never been in Starwars.

-Twilek Warriors, one of my favorite speices, a custom of a traditional Twilek Warrior class figure.

-Jedi Archive Keeper, a jedi from any era that fits that classic historian/librarian style we all know of archives keepers.

thats about all i got for now.....

I like the idea of Hutts! The Jedi Archive Keeper idea is cool too.

What about characters from some of the new novels?

The Republic Commando Series has a lot of choices.

Or the Michael Reeves I5-YQ Books, starting with Darth Maul, the Medstar books and the Jedi Twilight Series or books.
