Great job. I loved the McQuarrie drawing of this bizarre character in the cantina. The CW cartoon did a great job of taking McQuarrie's vision and realizing his drawings into their stories.

Really well done. Great painting and sulpting. What, if any, original parts did you use?

I really enjoyed that story arc. Great way of taking what I believe to be a realistic figures and transforming it into a custom animated version of this female. Great.


Darth Bobo wrote:Wow, so many great entries I am not sure where to start. Hasbro should have kept this line going. I think there are several figures here that put Hasbro’s work to shame.

Here is my entry for this round:

Steela from season 5’s rebellion of Onderon story arc.

I'm very impressed. I'd love to see an official Hasbro take on this guy, but you got him pretty close. And that's a tough custom to do

Thanks! I was just praying Hasbro would have tackled him. Ah well. He was tough. Serious eye strain doing his weapons. :D

And now - time for the Roundup Report. I apologize for not having this done sooner. Last week I was slammed at work, and then went out of town on vacation with my family for nearly a week. We ended up staying a day later than planned. Work and family come first - but this Roundup is still not as late as I was afraid it would be.

...so many amazing entries, I had a hard time getting through all these! I think that r1g4r3po might have set a record for number of customs submitted for one of these... this roundup set my carpal tunnel on fire! :wink:

Without further delay, our RANDOM WINNERS are as follows:

1 - hyperdrive
2- Peakob1
3 - r1g43po

Below are the figures to choose from. Hyperdrive, you should post in this thread which two you want first. Then Peakob1, you post in this thread which ones you want. The remaining two go to r1g4r3po. I will ship the figures to you loose sometime in the next 30 days. NOTE - the Jango/Battle Droid Mission Series count as one (1) figure.

After you have made your selections in this thread, please email me your shipping address at rykrofenloe@yahoo.com

Thank you everyone for making this so successful, by my count we had nearly 100 entries! And Yakfinities #49 is already underway, those details are HERE.

I would really love that cracken figure and a gungan.
Just glad to be along for the ride? And thank you!

Or gungan and tuskin raider would work fine too if the cracken figure is taken! :D

WOW, thank you soooo much. Honestly, that is one of the best roundups I can ever remember. Looks at all of these figures! What an awesome assortment. To the prize providers, HUGE THANKS for being incredibly generous. I select the following

- Death Squad Commander (He's never ever going to be "Imperial Navy Commander" in my eyes!)
- Colonel Cracken

Thanks again and Congrats to all. I can't wait to finish up my three entries for the Dark Horse #49 Yakfinities
