WOW. What a great response to this theme! Always love seeing the round up and looking at all the customs together, thanks for pulling that together Chewie! You really got things started off great with that Terminator figure, and the Nightmare based figure looks so good! Almost too good, as I'd like to see him as a full on Freddy custom and not just "inspired by!".
Darth_Naes - What an amazing assortment of submissions. I love 'em all, but I think the Rambo, Princess Bride, and Charlie's Angels based figures are my favorite. Love that pinup stormtrooper!
Darth Bobo - The Monty Python customs are so great! Great use of some otherwise outdated POFT2 parts, the work wonderfully here... but that Obi-Wan Knight with the rebel alliance tabard is amazing. it's such a cool design. I might have to steal that idea at some point. Oh, and the Hannibal Solo's gurney is great!
Tonphanan - These guys all look great, they fit perfectly into their Rebel Alliance roles.
Darth Sidious - I love "movie-style" customs of the animated characters, even though I'm not very familiar with them. The green one always looked like a Dr. Suess character to me, but you make him look downright menacing. Well done!
Lugo Matapollos - Melmak (sp?) totally deserved a Senate spot in the prequel movies. This isn't just a custom, it's a cry for overdue galactic justice! Great work!
Darth Kikinou - Man, now I gotta go watch Flash Gordon again. This figure came out great! Another one that makes use of some older parts and does it darn well!
Mungo Baobob - You've got some great weathering going on here, very gritty and battleworn. I think the Jedi with the cybernetic arm is my favorite.
Jaydsaber - I think, if I had to pic, this would be my personal favorite of this round. Only critique is I'd like to have seen him with less cartoony eyes (though they work great and make him instantly recognizable), and maybe see the "mohawk" from his centurion style helmet represented in some for. The belt is a really inspired choice to emulate his original character design.
Squirepec7 - Another great design that would look at home in both Star Wars and its original context, excellent part selection here.
MercuryArtStudios - Love it. I really like the element you chose for the chest piece, it's very distinctive and just makes the armor look even more formidable. Would've like to see a little white worked into the design to tie into the Clones a little more, but the silver certainly works great.
An amazing turnout, congratulations to all the winners! Well deserved!
