Full Version: Casting Call 61-NEW JEDI ORDER
F F U R G > Your Customs > 3.75" Scale Star Wars Customs
tonphanan
Wanted to start kicking around some topis to keep the Casting calls running. Here are a few of my suggestions:

Convention Exclusives: What would like to see as a convention exclusive? With convention season upon us maybe Hasbro's Camie and Fixer were not up to expectations. Maybe you have a better character that should get the special limited edition treatment. This Casting Call would be open to any scale and medium (eg:Mighty muggs, Galactic Heroe's, etc...)

Crimson Empire II

Concept art- characters or vehicles

New Jedi Order- at this point I would open it up to the ENTIRE cast list of characters of the NJO series just because we have such a small group on the site.

I think you know how I feel. So this would be my vote (not to mention having a huge # completed and working on Emissaries of the Void serial by Greg Keyes to get me back into things).

How about Sith Lords of the Legacy Era? I know there's Kryat, Talon, Nihl, and the Quarren, but that's only some of the One Sith.

tonphanan
Going to kick this off right after labor day with an end date not set yet, but will have one once we see what wins. Here are the choices:

1: Sith Lords of the Legacy Era

2: New Jedi Order

3: Crimson Empire I & II

4: Star Wars Halloween Special

5: Coalition Troopers

6: Princess Leia\ Leia Organa Solo



I know Yakface might be doing something similar to the Halloween topic, but hey that's why you make TWO figures. If Coalition Troopers it will be a revisit to a CC that I enjoyed, but would like to see more of a fan fic approach with the basic design kept in mind.
Sgt Humpty
My vote is for New Jedi Order. I've already got a ton of stuff that I could add to it and it might just get me motivated to make some new stuff...
pbarny
From that list...NJO, just because I'd have things to share at this point. Painting new things for me is an indefinite proposition. angry.gif

I like the Star Wars Halloween Special idea!
tonphanan
With the three regulars posting their votes I am going to keep this running until Labor Day and hold off on my vote if needed to break a tie.

So anyone else can throw in their choice. Even if you are not a particpant in the CC's on a regular basis we would like to hear from you. :Cough: Jason & Ash :Cough:

Don't forget you're a benevolant dictator in this case. You can take our advice, but you're the one drumming up the interest, so you gotta do what you gotta do.

clapping.gif Now that's comedy! Oh man. Thank you, PB. I needed that laugh.
clonecommander972
kind of a late suggestion, i suppose, but what about doing something like a "then and now" casting call?
could make a modern version of a vintage figure or vice versa, or maybe go back and remake your very first custom figure with newer parts?
TND
I like the Then and Now idea for a future CC, but for this vote, I go with Leia. She doesnt get enough love around here. She was a great character performed by a great actress. Unlike her mother.

I would have to think hard about which Leia to make. EU vs OT vs concept art vs fan fic. etc.
tonphanan
I like the Then and Now idea. I will keep it in mind for a future CC since voting has already started for this one.

TND- I tossed the Leia idea in there because like you said she doesn't see much love. We have done several character specific CC's in the past and thought that one might be a good idea.

At this point we have a tie between New Jedi Order and a Star Wars Halloween. If no other votes are put in by tomorrow I will break the tie. So if you really want your side to win I am taking bribes. Or just argue your point.

NJO. Quite simply it is the largest story arc in all the saga, and the only thing that takes more time in the time line is the time between Episodes I & II for character/era continuity. I was looking at my book shelf recently and as far as the EU goes, there is now more from the NJO to Legacy era than there is end of RotJ through the "New Republic Era" that ends at the NJO. It became the most devisive series since Dark Empire, as well as the best selling. Oh, and there is a chance to do multiple characters since the NJO is aproximately 5-7 year time span. Teenagers do grow up.
tonphanan
After much debate on my part I have chosen NEW JEDI ORDER as the next Casting Call. It's been a long time coming and will get it's due. This CC starts now and due to the size of cast of characters and the Holidays upon us I would like to run this one through the end of the year.

If you want to get your Halloween fix make sure you take part in the Yakinfinities over at Yakface.com.

Paul-being the reference guru you are please feel free to post any links or pics of character refrenences.

There's the front page...it has the Rogues Gallery. I'll get a scan of the Yuuzhan Vong Rogues' Gallery from Gamer #8 up here soon.

But here's to my spamming past projects...


Commodore Gavin Darklighter, circa Rebel Stand/Rebel Dream


Han Solo post Vector Prime to Agents of Chaos I/II


Councilor Pwoe, pre-Star By Star


Admiral Traest Kerf'yla


Omni, Shamed one, Jester of Supreme Overlord Shmirra


Anakin Solo, Vector Prime to Darktide II


Tahiri Viella, pre-shaping


Yuuzhan Vong Shamed One


Shawnkyrn Nuruodo, Chiss Liason, Vanguard Squadron Leader


Jagged Fell, Chiss Liason, Vanguard Squadron/Twins Sun Squadron


Mara Jade-Skywalker


Tam Azur-Jamin, "Quiet" Twin Suns Three Star by Star. Mentioned in passing in several books, species changes occassionally between Human (above) and Duros.


Streen


Kyp Duron, Jedi Master post Dark Aprentice


Tionne, Jedi Instructor/Archivist shown with insturment


General Sontir Fel, Chiss Represenative


Grand Admiral Gillian Pelleon


Saba Sebatyne, Wild Knightz Sqadron Leader, "crazy"


Ganner Rhysode, at Well of the World Brain "None shall pass" in Traitor

That's enough for now.
Kaje
Some amazing customs there!
pbarny
Oh, no, he's reposting again!!! Stop the spammer!!! Stop the spammer!!!

http://www.ffurg.com/references/njo_jedi.htm FFURG's own references


Tressina Lobi. Again, another tricky one to pin down the species to. Sometimes she's a Chev and sometimes a Chevin. Even more confusing, authors describe her as either humanoid with the flaxen/blonde hair or as a pachyraderm!!! And top it off, to say how inaccurate "comissioned" artwork is for Star Wars, the Insider gallery that FFURG posted up has her as a human!!! Sources are a pain.


Lowbacca. I'm loathe to clothe a Wookie though.


Kennth Hamner.



Tahiri Viela POST Shaping, circa The Final Prophecy/Unifying Force


Corran Horn, late NJO, Early NJO would have had buzz cut and shaven face due to millitary call up.

Ok, that's it for now. Wish I had the paint area to finish my Uldir Lochett and Klin-Fa Gi from Emmissaries of the Void serial.
TND
anybody else working on a NJO custom? if so...what?

i'm working on a jaina/lowie/treadwell/falcon scene. waiting on the base to arrive. lowie 95% done. treadwell 100% done. Jaina 70% done.

I'll also look into my old customs to see if i have anything post worthy.
tonphanan
I have Jagged Fel and General Wedge Antilles in the works. I also will be doing a "Chewbacca's final moment " based on a page in the comics.
TND
cool. cant wait to see.

Here are two of my previous renditions of jaina. I'm hoping the new one will be much much better. notice with the jedi jaina, i didnt have a digital camera back then so i had to scan her.

Thanks for adding to the CC TND. I have been slacking BAD on this Casting Call. I commented on them in your thread.

Every time I get close to getting finished I get sidetracked by another project. I do plan to have something by the end of the year. So just a reminder to everyone that is slacking like I am this CC ends at the end of the year.

End of the year is like 32 days away or so...I did my heavy lifting on the front end. Anyone want references or color scheme info, drop me a line. I'll do my best to help out and get you some info. Don't rely on any of the pictures out there for anything since most contradict each other picture and most of those pictures contradict the text that the authors wrote down before there was any artwork.
TND
speaking of color schemes, what do you think of lowie's coloring? especially regarding the black tuft on his head?
TND
I also have another NJO pair in the works, but need to break out the dremel...which is always a pain. figuratively and literally.
Darth Gabriel Angel
Oh cra#%$&!, don’t have anything related to the NJO era, better start working…
Sgt Humpty
I had to go all the way back to 2008 in my blog archive before I found any NJO stuff I'd done...

Luke Skywalker


Jaina Solo


Kam Solusar


Kyp Durron


Tesar Sebatyne


Lowbacca


Tenel Ka


Anakin Solo

I have 2 "problems" here. Kyp (mid to late 30s at the start) looks too young, and Anakin (didn't make it past 18) too old.

I am aware of the ages of these two characters. In fact, you made the same comments three years ago when I first posted them. I have no interest in revisiting them now.
pbarny
I do like the unruly hair on Kyp though. thumbup.gif
tonphanan
While other sites are extending their projects, this one is finished. Thanks to Paul, TND and Don for their submissions. I hit a major customizing roadblock and finished nothing at this moment.

If members are interested in another Casting Call then drop a line for some topics. Until then the CC's will be put on hiatus.
