With Casting Call #56 drawing to a close, it's time to start thinking about the late summer/early fall one.

Anyone with ideas, feel free to spout them off in this new thread.


My suggestions in order of preference:

WotC miniatures and artwork (non-"major" characters)

NJO/Legacy of the Force/Jedi Exile non-Jedi i.e. Booster Terrik, Talon Karrde, Grand Admiral Pelleon, Jagged Fel, Cal Omas, Borsk Fey'yla, Dalaa, Goran Beviin, Lon Shevu, Jori Lekauf, Mirta Gev, Han Solo, Leia Organa-Solo*, Lando Calrisian, Wedge Antilles, Gavin Darklighter, Tycho Celchu, Boba Fett. Luke and Mara Jade-Skywalker can go here as well.

NJO Jedi.


Remember, try not to overlap with Yakinfinites or other custom sites monthly/seasonal goings on. And try to have at least a majority of your figures created be new as well if nominating. Since this is probably going to be my "last one", I'm taking over from Don who is off playing games on Face-crack (which is sure to drive participation to nill). dry.gif No good idea will be rejected, and the more people that tell me what they think can get the most participation wins a cookie drool.gif

What about a Knights of the old republic theme? I'm talking about the comics (Golden Age of the Sith/ Hundred Year Darkness), but we could throw in the games as well

We've never done a KOTOR themed Casting Call before, I'm sure there would be interest there. There's a lot of resource material - the 2 games, the new MMO, the original Tales of the Jedi comics which take place during the same period, and the more recent KOTOR comics.

goes back into silent mode....

Paul can let us know if there is a conflict, but Yakface is currently running an Old Republic Yakinfinities. By the time this one starts though the Yak one will be close to over.

I said I would champion for the WOTC Casting Call so that is my vote.

Just a word of caution about WotC material and post it before things get too carried away, if it is on the www.wizards.com site or starwars.com or preview in Amazon etc, that is ok. WotC (aka Hasbro's red headed step child) is one of the more agressive outlets yeilding C&D orders, remove those pictures/texts to several websites big and small over the past decade. So please do not post, link to illegally posted material. I/we don't want FFURG to get into trouble. That has more do to with the major artwork involved in their books. Half if not all is available through the original artists website (with the permission of LFL/WotC so LEGAL) or in archived galleries.

This issue does not matter with respect to the miniatures. Those galleries are posted with full permission.

I'll address Ben Skywalker's question by this weekend. Got things to do.

Or later in the evening while waiting for my wife...

Simple answer is, Tales of the Jedi/Golden Age of Sith are in. KotR comics/games seem to overlap a bit with the Yakfinities. So essentially if not found in the Tales of the Jedi Omnibus, than it should be out. So let's say anythign happening before the events in Redemption is in. For lack of a better wording and to avoid confusion, we'll call this by its original name, Tales of the Jedi Era.

So far nominated is

WotC minis/artwork
Tales of the Jedi (discovery of Hyperspace to Redpemtion) era.


Nominations will be open through the end of the month (arbitrary decision).

That's a same and similar contest. However given it's relative "importance", I'm more than willing to be uber flexible on the deadlines/delaying #57 for some time for front page debut. Also the rules essentially make the dio pictures submitted the intellectual property of Hasbro/LFL, so we enter into a grey area (that includes any custom work you include in the picture so keep that in mind if you choose to participate). So dios will not be considered as a topic.

It's actually not that unusual of terms, pretty standard for contests like this.

Anyways, we'll drag the debut for this one out a month or so, giving people plenty of time to put together any dios they want in the next month. One week till I (that's right, me) decide on final topics.

The two we got so far that have been nominated and seconded are:

WOTC minis and artwork
Tales of the Jedi era.

I think if someone wants to do the Hasbro Diorama project they are welcome too, but it should not interrupt our attempt to revive the Casting Calls by delaying them for this Diorama project. From what I can tell custom figures that are not 100% Star Wars parts are banned from the contest anyway.

Casting Call suggestions:

The Yuuzhan Vong
Sith witches
Other characters from The Force Unleashed game
revisit the Coaliltion Trooper CC and expand the army

So unless there is any more seconding of ideas, I want those who are in favor of WotC Minis/Artworks and the Tales of the Jedi idea to write a brief statement of support, 2-3 paragraphs on why the sources, ideas, parts, and interest in each. You may write one essay per side only (so you can write one for both sides), and I'd like to see them posted by next Sunday. I'll go through and if there is an over whelming interest as well as supporting reasons for one over the other, we'll go with it. We'll than have about 2 months, let's say end of September to get things done and posted which will allow those who want to work on the Hasbro dio contest time for that as well.

This is what happens in academia when you want funding/greenlighting of a project. So when an academic siezes the reins, expect this. graduated.gif dry.gif

FYI, "beacuse it's awesome and we'll get lots of people to participate" while reasons aren't really a compelling argument.

I think that a TOJ cc would be neat because it's a classic! (IMO) It's also something that people would have to research on and would also let them use their imagination on varios concepts. Plus there's something about the colorfullness of the Talse of the Jedi comics that make unique and luring. So in my opinion it would be the the best choice. And gentlemen for my closing statement

I'm going to refrain from voting on this one since I was a tool that blew off the last one, despite spending money on the fodder to make several figures! wallbash.gif

OK. What are doing with this one? Are we still putting in nominations or are we waiting on Paul to reveal the topic?
