Yakfinities #65 - Mini Rigs

Yakfinities #65 will run July 1 - Sept 30

The theme is Mini Rigs - make anything you want as long as you feel it's in the spirit of "Mini Rigs"

Some starting suggestions:

Sith Lords & adepts
gladiators, warriors, fighters
protocol & bipedal droids
gangsters & thugs

Vehicles/mini rigs
Droids
Imperial/First Order Forces

How about alternate universe character roles? Take a character with an established role in the SW universe, a bounty hunter for example, and change them into a Sith lord.

2 strange themes would be:
Found object (turn a random object into something SW), and
Inspiration. Take anything and make something SW inspired by it.

For example, I found some alien looking stones and the pic looks like an alien head to me.

I went with vehicles just to take a break and do something different. Seems like a lot of people been itching to do this for a while. I've not really done a vehicle before, but I did attempt to saddle a gelagrub once.

I picked vehicles as well (although I'm happy someone voted for "found objects").

I really need to finish a bunch of vehicles I've started.

While not in the contest, I'd be really interested in anyone else's take on making this into an alien. It would be fun to see what different people come up with,

Any takers?

Your "found" object looks like a human heart. Might want to put it back where you found it. It might be missed. Just a suggestion. But it might make a really cool alien, or alien's head, as well! What other organs could be interesting for alien heads? Maybe some kind of spleen-headed xenomorph?

It is actually from a triglycerides?? ad that always shows up (except now when I want to find it).

On a completely unrelated note, I just found a dinosaur that would make a great base for a blurrg, just in time to be too late for the Tribal aliens contest. If vehicles wins, I may make a marauder yet.




Time permitting.

I also voted for vehicles/mini rigs. I really want a reason to make an Endor forest ranger mini rig! Utinniii: blurrg with a marauder rider...I love it, best idea ever!
