How about concept/what if in general?

Figures based on concept art is a great idea. Another idea could be anything Resistance related - either from the ST or the upcoming cartoon.

don't know if done before, but what about "classic" or "old-school" EU...like "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" or the Brian Daley Han Solo trilogy. "Heir to the Empire" trilogy also be cool, but initially I was thinking to older EU. To be honest. 15 +/- years ago I've done a dozen or more SOTME figs, but given that SOLO: A Star Wars Story did visit Mimban and there were glimpses of The Coway tribe members, SOTME was first on my mind

I'd say concept figures, entertainers, and maybe Resistance Vs. First Order?

I think my ideas fall under entertainers and what if.

All of the above are good choices.
Something I'm not sure ever suggested before would be hommages.
Here we would make a custom figure using the recipe from a previous Yakfinities or something one of us has made.
So if someone wanted to make a character from a photo novel or previous contest they could.
I can easily think of half a dozen customs like a cloaked Jawa (Teebo body), crocohorse, Teebo head custom, Elliot and 1/4 of anything mosedroidhoojib has made.

@Jodo,

Droids would be perhaps a little more difficult than a general action figure since you'd probably have to do more scratch-building, but I think it could be a really interesting opportunity to try and use some different materials and greeblies/bits to make a custom droid. Plus... Who doesn't love droids??
