HOLY CRAP!

That's got to be one of the scariest looking customs I've ever seen anyone make. I love it! Wow, wow, wow!!!!

Thanks Ghostskull and Chewie - I really tried to combine a lot of elements to create an ultimate villain.

Here is one of my entries for the contest. It's Bastila Shan as a Sith Apprentice. OK, perhaps not technically from a mirror Star Wars because in KOTOR Bastila actually did go over to the Dark Side briefly. Still, I had an extra Bastila and I wanted to make the figure. The color scheme is basically the same as Shan's Sith robes in the game.

Unfortunately, you can't really appreciate the slight shades of color in the paint job because 1) my apartment has horrible lighting, and 2) I only have my old iPhone for a camera. Still, I hope you enjoy it.

I have a few other EU mirror universe characters, and I'll post them when I get time.

UPDATE: I changed the photos. These are a bit better in brighter light. It's a bit more apparent that her outfit isn't black.

Welcome to the forums darthcrassus - that's awesome! Thank you for sharing!

Any plans to maybe make her face look a bit more evil? Perhaps dark under her eyes or something? Just an idea - either way, it looks great.

Awesome customs everyone!!!

Hey, YAK_Chewie. Did you receive my PM or email for the other contest? I know it's improper to ask here, but I need to know for confirmation that you got my info.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, actually I did think about it and I haven't quite decided yet whether to do it or not. I based the figure primarily off the KOTOR game version of Bastila as a Sith apprentice and in the game her face doesn't look any more evil than normal. However, I agree with you that it might look cool - and probably more in-character for a Sith. In fact, I've used a similar technique for my custom Darth Plagueis figure to give his skin a pale bluish pall based on the cover of James Luceno's new book (happy to post pictures if folks are interested in seeing how he came out). I might try it on Bastila, but at the risk of not being 100% faithful to the game.

Yep - found it this morning in my junk box... I was going to send you a PM this week, did not realize that my yahoo account had filtered it there. I should be able to get everyone's figures mailed this week.

Oh, she's great either way... but please do start a customizing thread with your customs in it in our customizing section. Would love to see what else you've made!

I'm hoping that things slow down a bit after Halloween... I'd like to make a few more classic OT figures to match my Luke, Obi Wan and Vader.

Having a hard time coming up with ideas... maybe I could try some gender-swaps? Female Vader or Fett or some such? Love what everyone's been showing so far!

Some other ideas to help spark some submissions...

- Spaceballs counterparts
- Superhero counterparts
- real world military gear (Imperials as Nazis, Rebels as Allies)

Of course, Luke as a Sith, Palpatine as a hero - that kind of concept I'm sure we'll see some of. I just tried to go with something a little different with mine... I'd like to make some Stormtroopers with the medieval theme; I think I have a decent idea in mind for that?

I've had a Super-Hero/Star Wars mash-up I've been toying with, might be time to take a crack at finishing him, good call.

I've got the Ezio figure from Assassin's Creed by my desk, and it seems like if you replaced the red parts with black and gave him some sort of mask, he could make a good fantasy style Storm Trooper. :)
