Chose First Order Forces, I have an idea for that one but don't know if I would even have the time to get it done...

I don't customise myself, but I love seeing what you all come up with. And I would like to see some custom(ised) vehicles.

I went w/ medics/scientists....recently I been contemplation a few figs from the former marvel darth vader series inspired by the JTC cover variants featuring Cylo and Tulon. plus there are a few Clone Wars characters I'd like to attempt to continue a former yakfinities from a couple years back. I cant recall the mad scientist's name from the padme/jar jar biohazard/virus episode but he has been on my to-do list ever since the end of that yakfinites and I never got around to attempting his figure. Now w/ this contest, if this theme wins, i'll stop procrastinating and get on it

If vehicles wins, we can do that now. Concept art and EU are also great sources.

It's great to have the time, the energy and the desire to create again. Strange journey past few years. Just hoping that my skills are still there. Perhaps a scientist themed mini rig- hmmmmmmmm, that sound very imteresting

The vintage Kenner Mini-Rigs line featured a range of vehicles "just off screen" that were smaller scale, one (or two)-man versions of hardware used by Rebels and Imperials in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi.
One of the surprising omissions was a scaled down version of the ubiquitous Star Destroyer, so I thought that I would put my own version together. Using the Kenner naming convention, I dub this Scout Star Destroyer SSD-9.

And in vintage catalogue style:

Recipe and turnaround can be found in my customs thread.

that star destroyer mini rig is one of the coolest creations i've ever seen anywhere! OMG its totally awesome. it's in perfect unison with the vintage KENNER mini rigs. it would look perfect with the mini shuttle (ISP-6??) Also the black color is perfect for a stealth-y mini rig. you have inspired me sir!!!!
