- Merchants (playing off of that little look at what appears to be a marketplace in episode VII)
- Senators (not particularly exciting, I know, but since Hasbro has left them behind...)
- creatures/monsters

Hasbro, I'm waiting for my rickshaw droid.

Something I have a lot of custom fodder for :lol:

I like both the Merchants and Senator ideas

How about Order 66 survivors/Jedi in hiding?

How about something from current media, like the 4-part comic series - Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir?

Hopefully I will be settled in enough to participate in this one.
I like the merchant and war droids ideas.

I'm thinking Merchants too, and that sneak peak Ep7 alien with the cage of critters on his back looks like a challenge, but the Monster/Beast/Creature category is tempting, and I think I have the right fodder for that TMZ big pig critter.

!!!WE NEED MORE REVEALS !!!!

I know my son would like me to vote Droids of War, cause he's working on his first custom, and this category would suit him nicely.

Gotta sleep on it.

Release the Droids of War!

I have missed out on the last couple of these challenges but hope to find more time to get back into the hobby

I picked Order 66 survivors as that is one I have always championed for but haven't bothered to do on my own regardless of a Yakinfinities or not. I do have on my work bench a Vader with victim from long ago that I am updating so That one will be shown off at some point in my thread. Hope to get participate this time as I just haven't had the motivation to work on much lately.

As heir to the famous Baobab Merchant Fleet, the young Mungo Baobab was, with the help of his droids, R2-D2 and C-3P0, instrumental in opening up trade routes that bypassed the nascent Empire's reach.

Here are a couple of entries for this round

first up Jeppo

Jeppo has been around violence all his life. He serve his mandatory tour of duty in the Home Guard on Rodia. He then served a few years as a mercenary and then a gunrunner. He has since decided to settle down and sell his wares at a permanent and safer location. He is now an arms merchant running a shop in the Strip on the island of Patu Kova on the watery world of Patu.

Jeppo is just a repainted Pax Bonkik

Next up is Thannu Gendon.

Thannu Gendon-The Ithorian merchant Thannu Gendon owns and operates Gendon's Greenhouse on the Strip. He difers from his fellow merchants in several ways . First, he is more about the enjoyment of his goods than profits. He does sell hi plants but will also accept barter and trade for them. He is more likely to give a parcel of seeds of drought resistant gourds to a needy farmer than make them pay for them. Second, although he is fully aware of the fact that several of his plants can be used for illicit activities, he doesn't market them as such. He won't make an under the table deal for toxic or narcotic plant substances. Third, he doesn't live on or near the strip like most of the other merchants. He has a tranquil dwelling located deep in the rainforest of the island's interior. Lastly, he is a foster agent for the Rebel Alliance. He will offer assistance where he can to those Rebels that seek him out.

Thannu is made from a Roron Corobb. I painted his eyes solid black to make him look less cartoony. His poncho comes from an Endor Leia. His sash is a shoelace and the pouch is from TCW Chewbacca.

Wow - darthapathy, that Ithorian is AWESOME! I think that might be my favorite custom that you've made.

What a cool idea for a merchant. I love this. Very well done! The Rodian is also a great custom too, very nice painting.

:wink:
