I will be taking over the next Casting Call and thought I should get the thread started on ideas for the #58. Here are some things I was knocking around.

Sith Witch

NJO Core Characters- Han, Leia, Luke, Chewie, Mara The Solo Childern

NJO Non-core (non-Jedi) or support characters-Wedge,Talon

Mini diorama

3 3/4 Scale Unleashed

Rebel Troops to include Honor guard, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Hoth soldiers, Endor Soilders. Any style of trooper that has at least been mentioned SOMEWHERE in Star Wars lore.

For a subject that opens alot more to the Fan Fic section I nominate a Joe/Star Wars Crossover.

Let's hear from everyone. It would be nice to get some big participation this time around.

Rebel Troops is a neat idea. I have a bunch of Saga Endor Soldiers begging to be used for something.

I thought Rebel Troops could be something everyone could take a part in submitting. From the Newbie to old pro. What other suggestions are out there folks. Maybe something Don could participate with whistling.gif

http://www.wizards.com/starwars/downloads/...ra_Preview1.pdf The soilders in this link would not be excluded either.

Yeah, I have about 8 WIP Rebel Troopers that have been untouched since May. It would be good to finish them...

I have made at least four honest efforts to find something to do from TotJ, but I can't seem to find a character that interests me enough to make... To me, the whole series was rather mediocre.

The Rebel Soilders idea seems to be catching on. And I hear Corran might actually participate hypocrite.gif. But if anyone else has any suggestions please feel free to drop a line. Casting Call #58 topic will go up on October 2 the day CC #57 ends.

We have a Pilots CC already so the Rebel soldiers would not include pilots.

Rebel Soldiers would include (IMO):
- troopers
- commanders (non-jedi)
- ground personnel
- technicians
- honor guards
- off-duty rebels

SpecForces, Pathfinders, Marines are some troopers. Great WotC supplament last month that James already linked too with pictures of each.

There's also the unit's: Wraiths (as an intel/ground unit), Katarn Commandos, Page's Commandos (and who the censored.gif knows what Page looks like either?), Kap Dendo's rebels, Esclol's Revolutionaries (my name for them), Cracken's procurment teams and the like.

I could "back submit" so much to this, it'd be like participating but not!

That is correct. Rebel Troopers would not include pilots, but everyone else is fair game. With the list of ideas from Del and Pbarny there is a good mix of fan fic and ongoing lore for character ideas.

I've posted news of the new Casting Call on the front page and put together an icon for the CC as well...



I'll take some pics this weekend of my entries, some work that I don't believe has been shown before...

Happy Customizing!

I figure I'll start the inspiration with some older Rebel Customs of mine. I know the point is new figs but we gotta start somewhere!

Bith Rebel Officer

I was inspired by the WOTC Miniture version of this EU figure. It's a cast Cantina Band Member head on a General madine body.

General Jan Dodonna
Simple swap custom with a Dodonna and a Antillies figure:

Head, Chest, Legs: SAGA Dodonna
Arms, Coat: SAGA Antillies

Dresselian Mercenary

Head - POTF2 Prune Face cast (available for trade without the eyepatch)
Chest - POTF2 Prune Face
Arms and Legs - SAGA Endor Trooper
Cloak - OTC Garandin

Rebel Heavy Trooper

Simply a repaint with a new gun and helmet swap, this TSC figure was perfect for the trooper who carried around the rocket launcher. The gun is made from a Momaw Nadon Rifle and a R2-D2 Jet thing.

Rebel Sniper

The figure used mostly an Amanda Kirby Jurassic Park 3 figure (head, torso, legs) but also used Ewok Leia Arms, a TSC Endor Soldier Helmet, a random Han Vest, a SAGA Endor Soldier Backpack, and an IG-88 rifle.

Rebel Technician
Inspired by Corranhorn's custom HERE, I sculpted a longer-brimmed hat on a Veers head. The rest is, well, untouched.


Battlefront Endor Soldier

Duke head, Rykoff Enloe Endor Soldier everything else

Wookie Warrior

Rorworr head w/sculpey, Wookie Warrior body & bandolier, Kitbashed bowcaster.

Battlefront II - Tantive IV Rebel Sniper & Vanguard

Head - Golden Compass Asriel cast / Chief Bast cast
Chest & Arms - VTAC Han Endor
Legs, Crotch, & Vest - Rebel Vanguard Trooper
Using screen captures, I noticed that the shirts worn by the RFTs in the game were grey, not baby blue, so I went that route. They are just about SA, although a little limited due to the paint.

Winter - Rebel Fatigues

Head - Starkiller Hero
Body - VTAC Leia Endor
Simply head swap. All it needed was a shortened neck peg and a new coat of flesh paint on the neck.

Hoth Rebel Soldier

Head - Saga Endor Soldier (Rycoff)
Chest, Gun, & Backpack - Saga Hoth Rebel Soldier
Hat, Arms, Legs & Crotch - TAC General McQuarrie
Skirt - TAC Moisture Farmer Luke

Hoth Rebel Vanguard

Head - TAC Rebel Vanguard Trooper
Chest, Arms, & Legs - Target UBP Han Hoth
Skirt - TAC Moisture Farmer Luke
Hat - POTJ Cold Weather Obi-Wan
Gun - custom using POTF2 Momaw Nadon gun & Saga Red Clone Tripod Gun

Battlefront Rebel Vanguard

Helmet - BP Rebel Trooper
Head - TAC DS Trooper
Chest, Harness, & Arms - Cobra Jet Trooper
Torso & Upper Legs - Rebel Vangaurd
Lower Legs - Crystal Skull Indy
Only part of this figure that I changed from the reference was the type of helmet. The actual character had only the rounder helmet without the back portion or black front section, but I liked this helmet better because it had the chin strap.

Tycho Celchu - Dress Uniform

Head: TAC Tycho Celchu
Everything Else: Comic Wedge Antillies

Rebel Special Forces




Head & Helmet-Resolute Duke
Body & Upper Arm-Saga Endor soilder
Lower arm-Oddball

Oddly the helmet doesn't fit the same anymore. Working on fixing it by sanding it out.

Nice work tonaphan. I will absolutely make something for this.

Here's something for reference, a recent "Ladies" custom for a Yakfinities Customizing Challenge - she's an early Resistance Fighter, which in my mind is an early Rebel. She's not for this contest of course but I will be coming up with a custom or two for this one, I like the theme a lot.

what chewie mentioned gave me a couple ideas that i've already started on, but, i'd be curious to know if they'd still count~
anyway, i was thinking something along the lines of "early resistance fighters" like, maybe, groups of soldiers still wearing the republic symbols and such? (one i'm almost done is a rebel soldier wearing pieces of clone armor, with things like the rebel alliance and galactic republic symbols on the shoulders and stuff.) would these be acceptable, or should i start scrounging up some parts for a couple fleet troopers?

My original idea was to keep it with the movie,comic and novel troopers and not alot of fan fic, but in order to get more participation for this and future CC's as long as you stay with the theme and a timeline (Rise of the Rebels thru ROTJ) I'll let it go.

In the case of a Casting Call like this, stretching to fan-fic isn't too bad of an idea, but when we go to specific themes where there is a lot of sources such as the previous CC then fan-fic should be restricted. I'd also consider letting people submit old customs to get more people involved, there we could put a cap on how many old customs a person could submit. For example here are several customs I'd like to submit for the CC, they are older customs but some have not been highlighted in the past (I believe) and I intend to make a new custom for this CC...

Bith Officer

Torso/Rifle - POTF2 Prune Face
Pelvis/Legs - TSC Endor Soldier

Head - Unknown Head Cast with modded POTJ Biker Scout Helmet

Rebel Scout (Male)


Inspired by an issue of the EMPIRE Comic series:
Head - Zartan head cast from Ash
Torso/Pelvis - POTF2-CT Han Solo
Pelvis/Legs - Unknown, I think Jurassic Park
Arms/Blaster - TSC Endor Soldier
Helmet/Poncho - TSC Endor Luke
Belt - Heir To The Empire Luke
Scanner - VOTC Hoth Han

Rebel Scout (Female)

What we've done up to now is older stuff can be "back submitted" with no limit, but you're the one who has to do the "work" in posting them. New stuff for the debuts, but hey, whatever works. I still think older stuff can be back sumbitted at no limit if one wants to put it up there. thumbup.gif

So, here I go with my "older stuff". I'll forgo the pilots except for one, since his is the "trainer".

The first posted Tycho in Dress Uni (yea, we all had the idea once we saw the Wedge/Borsk Pack, but I got it up here first)


Basso, Rebel Commando Gear


Dresselian Pathfinder




Ric Olie, Rebel Advisor


Jorg Sucal, Flight Trainer


Rebel Sentry


Rebel Fleet Troopers






Nik Sant, Rebel SepcForces


Garm Bel-Iblis, New Republic Officer


Gotal Rebel Deck Officer


Dodana, Antilles, Antilles Dodana (before and afters stolen from Jason iirc)
