Unleashed would be hard at this stage with very little Unleashed product available. If you did them in 3 3/4" scale, we'd be limiting the customs to very skilled sculptors IMO. The idea of Unleashed was to have very dynamic poses.

Nice idea but I think it's impractical for a CC. What does everyone else think?

I think that even some of those new to the hobby could do an Unleashed. I was thinking that the best way would be in 3 3/4 scale. Personally it would involve more posing than sculpting. The only thing that I could think of as an issue would be showing the joints instead of having a smooth figure at all the bends, but I don't think that would take away from the concept.

But hey, if no one jumps aboard no big deal, just and idea. I know I have a Lobot I would like to try.

This is one I did awhile back that falls into what I was thinking. A dynamic pose with basic parts. Although it is a TROOPER. rolleyes.gif

I know it small its the only pic I had, but you'll get the idea.

I think with the glut of SA clones, and the various bases out there, wouldn't it just turn into a Clone 3.75" Unleashed pose a thon? Where's the customization in that?

Build a mini-environment with a backdrop the size of a Hasbro base give or take is the idea with a pose (essentially what Unleashed scale down would be). The backdrop/base element is the customizing in this case (which is definitely a significant part of customizing for dio builders).

It's worthy of consideration but there's so many other things that we haven't even touched on, Jedi of the NJO, Holiday (not just Christmas) versions, Clone Wars/Empire/Republic comics, Legacy comics now that the tpb's are coming out.

How about this one, which would allow a bit of fan fic and EU to mix, supporting roles: the techs, mechanics, ground pounders, flight controllers to finally be included?

Take an obscure or background character. Someone who didn't have much screen time or time in one of the other medias..comics,books,etc..and not a MAJOR character or TROOPER. A character that you wouldn't think would be Unleashed.

I considered that it could end up as a Cloneathon which is why I put in the no TROOPER provision.

This by no means has to be the next casting call. I just thought the drawings they had of characters that really didn't do anything was funny and would make for some unique customs. My favorite was the Unleashed Mouse Droid.

I would just like it for consideration in the next voting. The concept is really no different than what Hasbro gave us in the Titanium series of figures.

Interesting idea...I'd be up for it, but since it's Corranhorn that does the HTML for the main site, I'll let him make the call.

If we do this, I've already got at least 5 or 6 customs completed for BF1 and BF2.

It's all about timing with the HTML work required from his end. I know he just finished a business trip to Boston because he came to see me! beer.gif

I honestly forgot to talk about it with him while he was here, but I'll work on it.

I merged the Battlefront CC suggestion thread into this one.

We're going to be putting up the Battlefront Casting Call as a quick week long event (more details on the site later this weekend) leading to the announcement of a month long Casting Call. Hint: its been suggested before. smile.gif

So in the meantime, You can start sending in your submissions for the Battlefront CC.

Hmm.. what could it be.

NJO-maybe there was support for it, but relies mainly on novels for characters and descriptions.

Legacy-lots of comics, current and on going series, Sith lords aplenty. This would be a very cool CC.

I'm giddy with anticipation. I have parts layed out just waiting for the official annoucement. pinch.gif

Knights of the Old Republic-established characters from the game and comics.

The Force Unleashed-game characters

Rogue Squadron/Wraith Squadron pilots and support staff. I know that's more book related when it comes to references, but that's what Wookieepedia is for.

There's some interest, so BUMPING this thread.

Still would like a WotC Character are one.

Also the non-Clone support trooper/character.

NJO/Legacy of the Force/Jedi Exile Jedi.

Legacy Characters (probably should be broken up into Sith and non)

Re-invented characters. Instead of going with "any" sourced background material, why not re-invsion Luke/Han/Leia as Twi'leks or Wookies or even stranger?

Since it's a favorite in the Q&A: "Noah's Ark". Have to create a non-represented Alien Species and make the male and female versions.
