Who wants to win some cool prizes, and help a great cause at the same time? Well starting November 1st, to January 31st Echo Base News will be running a Star Wars customizing contest!! We'll have several winners, including a fans choice vote! You may be asking yourself, "Whats the theme?" We decided to forgo the theme and make it an open ended contest as long as its set in the Star Wars Universe! We're limiting it to three entries per person. We'll announce prizes at a later date and to make things even better, for every entry, we will be donating $1 to ROAR Charity (Rwandan Orphan Assistance Response), Run by Lily Nyamwasa (Stass Allie from ROTS), More information is available on their website http://www.roarcharity.org So get out there, and start customizing!!

If you have any questions at all, please feel free ask me on here, or over at EBN. Thanks!

UPDATE
Some more info to update everyone on. Dioramas and Customs Vehicles are okay to submit. All customs(of any kind) must be new tho and never posted on any other sites in the past.

We will also be doing a benefit auction for anyone interested in donating their figures. All proceeds will go toward ROAR. If interested, you can contact me at bjh@echobasenews.com!!

Replied at Yakface, but wanted to go into more detail here.

Like I said, I'm in! The time frame is sufficient, even for someone like me  Wink Just a few questions, though:

- will the entries be put up for auction? I think that'd be just terrific.
- does it involve just figures, or are vehicles and dioramas also allowed?

ROAR.... I'm thinking Wookiees......

What a cool idea to donate money for every entry in the contest.  Wink

I will definately participate, as a matter of fact, I'll kick it off.  My nephew wanted a figure of Jedi Knight Di from the CW season 3 episode "Supply Lines", but Hasbro failed to produce one.  I've been working on one this weekend for the contest.  Here is how he turned out:

Thanks, glad you like it.  I have a couple more ideas - I'm sure I'll be able to submit another entry.  Wink

Can I submit the customs if I've posted them to a forum or personal webpage but not a contest? Alternatively, if I take the photos down from the other site can I still submit the customs here?

Awesome entry, Dillon! Thanks for participating!

Unfortunatly they have to be new, so if you've posted them anywhere else, they wont be accepted. Even if you remove the photos from another site...sorry. Hope to see some new  ones of yours tho Smiley
Darn, I just posted a few pics of my best customs to another site a few days ago, including Darths Plagueis, Tenebrous, and Zannah! I have a few more ideas, so I'll try to get them up between now and January.

You can share them in our customs section here though, just not in the contest. We'd love to see them!!!! Cool

I'll post a few when I have a chance. Here are some of mine posted on another site: http://www.yakfaceforums.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=6643. I'll probably try to make a Darth Cognus - I've always wanted to make one of her.
