What Star Wars alien race might work for this?

Postby DanOfTheDead » Fri Aug 05, 2011 5:22 pm

Continuing my project making Star Wars customs based on Mass Effect character designs, I'm tackling the short and squat Volus, seen here.

I've got the base figure selected, and it's about 3/4" the height of a normal Star Wars figure. I'm stuck on designing the mask, as it's going to depend on who I envision being UNDER that mask, even if I don't do a removable helmet.

Any ideas for what Star Wars alien might fit the criteria:

3 fingers on each hand. Short and chubby. Looks at home in a bulky earth tone space suit. Might have to wear some sort of atmosphere mask.

Here are some of the earlier ones I've done:

Krogan to Besalisk

Asari to Nautolan

Human Dancer, based on Mass Effect costume designs

The Utai variant H' showed a couple years ago at a show seems like it might have worked, if they had ever actually released it.

A Gand fits into the short and 3 fingers with a breathing app. "Plo Koon" species also fits into the 3 fingers and breathing app. size can be altered. There was the Plo Koon with the removeable mask from a year ago. That might work as a good base if you go that route.

Try Ponda Boba for the head with some goggles. The shape of the head looks similar IMO.
