Yakfinities #54 will run from October 1 - December 31.

The winning category is Order 66 Survivors / Jedi Outcasts.

Have fun, and good luck as we'll have three random winners selected in January! Remember to submit NEW customs for this theme.

If not for the fact that Rebels was already done recently, I'd have proposed that. For now, I like the idea of sand crawler droids.

How about characters:
* re-imagined in a Steampunk (or Dieselpunk or Atompunk) style
* from classic TV: the Holiday Special; the Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor movies; the Ewoks and Droids cartoons
* from the Coruscant Outlander Club

Yeah, we did that for the joint site contest, but I figured a Yakfinities challenge focusing on the new show would be fun too; especially since we'll be seeing the first episode at the same time this round is slated to start.

I went with vintage remix. I think it would be fun to paint some modern figures in paint schemes that are reminiscent of the old school designs. Like Greedo with bright green clothes, for example.

Order 66 Survivors, it is.

Finish up those Merchants customs and get ready for some Jedi outcasts!

Despite having multiple death scenes filmed for, but ultimately cut from, Revenge Of The Sith, Shaak Ti survived the implementation of Order 66, and exiled herself on Felucia where she took Maris Brood as a padawan and awaited an inevitable confrontation with Darth Vader. As depicted in The Force Unleashed, Shaak Ti dueled Vader's secret apprentice above the Ancient Abyss clad only in the threadbare remnants of her Jedi garb. Given the increasingly small likelihood that Hasbro will revisit the Jedi Master in her final costume, I thought that I would put together my own version in 6" scale.

I've been trying to make time to jump back in on Yakfinities for a while, and had a bit of inspiration for the latest theme and came up with this character. Arys Takar is a padawan who's chopped off her hair to disguise herself as a young boy training for the Bounter Hunter's guild. Parts and more information at my site, as always.

Arys "Styx" Takar

EDIT: It's been a while since I've posted work on a forum that doesn't autoshrink my images, is there a way to force them to display a little smaller with the BBCode?

Both great entries so far. Nice work to both of you!

Danofthedead - I don't think I would have ever figured that el-les torso would look that good on a realistic custom. Great eye - it looks great.
