It looks like Star Tours droids won with one vote, this should be an interesting contest - I dont usually make droids myself, so this will expand my customizing horizons, lol.  Wink

I'll start off the entries with a quick custom I made today, I saw a cool little droid last season on the CW cartoon and thought it would make a fun crowd control droid for the Star Tours attraction - keeping people in line.  Its based off the Senate cam droid, but its apparently called a Police Probe in the CW series, heres how it turned out:

Here's my entry, a baggage droid.



Did a quick remake of the new Star Tours emblem and applied to the suitcases in photoshop.

Base figure is Commander TX-20 minus his head and with the torso, legs, and feet switched back and forth.

Just in case anyone is interested, here's the "in universe" Star Tours logo I did with the Star Wars font instead of English.




That big blank space is the all white logo, you should be able to right click, save picture as or copy... it just doesn't show up since the forum background is all white as well. Smiley

Howdy! I'm a longtime Star Tours fan, just registered here so I can show off a few things.

Is this contest open to things that were made a while back? Or do they have to be newly made just since the contest was announced?

Thanks!

Its cool to see that you went with fan fiction for your customs - those are always fun.  With one month down - its time for some more entries!  Grin
