YAKFINITIES #52 - JABBA'S ENTOURAGE

Make any custom of a character you consider to be part of Jabba's gang, and you're set! Just make it a new custom, and it can be fan fiction, EU, ROTJ based, whatever - entries accepted April 1 - July 31.

As always we'll have some random prizes announced during the Roundup Report.

Dang, I was hoping to suggest Clone Wars - The Lost Missions for this round! It's fun to make these relevant to current media, but it appears voting has started...

That would have been a good idea, and I apologize for not getting this moving faster. I am very far behind on a lot of things in the hobby right now, including website duties - work is just destroying me these days and I have much less "free time" for these things. I came very close to shutting down Yakfinites after #50 because of time constraints. At some point, I may be looking to hand this off to someone who has more time and energy than I do.

Yes, I do believe Jabba's entourage is going to run away with it... seems the most participation we get with these is the OT related ones, so I guess this theme being in the lead should come as no surprise...

This was a tough choice for me, but I ended up voting for Jabba's entourage as well. Will maybe make me finish my long-in-progress Shasa Tiel.

I assume PT Jabba's entourage would also be fair game?

Could we also assume those from EU sources are fair game too?

EU, fan fiction, etc... all that's fair game.

...and it's Jabba's Entourage. Let the fun begin!

Great, I'm in this one - a perfect moment to realise some projects that I've been postponing for a long time :)

Dym Orgreegi, like most of the guards indentured to servitude in Jabba's palace, secretly plotted to kill the Hutt gangster and take his fortune.

Thanks heaps, Chewie. This guy is indeed an original character, although his costume is very heavily inspired by a number of other guards' armour, including Lando.

While these guys aren't eligible for this round having already appeared in previous Yakfinities, perhaps they might inspire creativity in others - Opun McGrrrr (or Heater, or "The Fat Man", aka the human Jabba), the unnamed human Skiff Guard seen running away from Luke just prior to Luke's hand being shot, and Wam "Bam" Lufba:

Baylor Zimm (fan fiction/EU-Tales from Jabba's Palace)

Baylor Zimm was an up and coming bounty hunter. He decided to answer the call for hunters put out by the notorious Jabba the Hutt. He was offering a bounty of 100,000 credits to anyone who could bring him a Krayt Dragon. He planned on pitting it against his Rancor and selling admission. Like many of the other entrants, he became distracted by other "things" at Jabba's palace.

Recipe-
Body-TAC Death Star Trooper
Head-Basso (comic pack)
Helmet and breastplate-Saga Death Star Gunner

Dorwen N'Dal (fan fiction)
The Imzig Dorwen N'Dal has worn many hats throughout his lifetime and they have all been bad. He started out as a pirate in the N'Dal clan plundering ships in Hutt space. After too many close calls, he decided to try his hand at something "safer". He started smuggling the stolen goods from his family's plunders. He has smuggled everything from spice to weapons to ship parts. His latest venture is selling his goods on Tatooine to the vile gangster, Jabba the Hutt.

Recipe
Head-Utris M'toc
