    Blue Snag would be AWESOME. Go Kenner accurate, not film accurate (ie the same costume but taller and red), and you you'd have fanboys foaming.

    Not many have done Star Killer. There are a few different versions. I think all of them are cool.

    So there's that.

    Your Probably quite right, and as for Starkiller there are hundreds of them over at Flagship all types just about too i think :(

    Sorry M8:confused

    I have not been to the flagship for quite a while ... my mistake. I did a Revan a few years ago when there where only 4. At that time there was only say 2 Star Killers in progress I believe, 1 approved and the other WIP.

    As the last post. He is more than likely very correct. Remember about doing Expanded universe stuff, Lucas Films does "NOT" approve them for high end events. Both Myself and Spanos in his AWESOME Durge were denied acceptence to Star Wars in concert.

    How about this one ....... AirBourne Clone. The one with the bumble bee helmet. VERY few of those last I checked.

    But some are faaaaaar less common. I think that'd make some more interesting.

    You could do animated Clone Wars versions of some b-list characters just to make it unique. Bossk comes to mind, as do some of the jedi such as Plo Koon or Kit Fisto. Kit's Mon Cal apprentice might be nifty.

    Just remember the more obscure you are willing to go, the more people will admire it. For example, a lot of work goes into making a good Jedi tunic and robes, but the everyday person doesn't go to crazy over it. But a good sith people will knock others down to get a picture. Like the Darth Bane that Thomas/The Clone Emperor built. Some people want a costume only that is easy to recognize -Darth Vader- some want to hang back and blend in -Rebel Trooper- It just all depends.

    I think there have been some based on Lego's minifigs. I swear I'd seen photos floating around the net years ago of a couple 70s Kenner style costumes, complete with sabers coming out of the arms and plastic capes/cloaks.

    I have pictures on my other computer of two Minifigs blown up to costume-size - a Qui-Gon Jinn and a Darth Maul. They were wicked!

    And you´re right, I´ve done Starkiller and Ahsoka myself, those are suits that are more and more common these days. But how about a variation on the characters? I mean, one has seen a Luke ESB, but I´ve seldom seen a dirtied-up, pocket flaps torn and hanging, Luke ESB. You´ve got the looks, even though judging by the picture you´re more manly than Hamill will ever be, but that could be a good variant.

    Or even the Dark empire Luke, which I haven´t seen many floating around, perhaps?

    You could do Biggs Darklighter! That would be fun to see. Or just pick a random extra from one of the Scenes in Hoth.

    Or you could have fun and make Chewbacca riding a Probe Droid! (Chewbacca as your chest and droid as your torso) :lol

    You know, now that you mention it a clone trooper would be interesting. This might even be just a personal project for myself. Hmmm.....

    Back in the day I always wanted to be the first one to do Panaka or any Naboo Royal Guard, but I bet there's a bajillion of them now. ;_;

    And why NOT Gungans? Jar Jar aside, I actually did like Captain Tarpals and some of the generic Gungan warriors. A great chance to learn prosthetics and mask-making.
