Hi everyone!
It's my 500th post!

As many of you may know, I've been here for over a year now, but have never made and posted any MOCs, just occasionally a few MODs. I was a little bored this afternoon and so decided to start MOCing. I noticed a while back that many members have their own signature minifigs that they use as avatars and are well-known by. Seeing this, I decided I should make myself one but wasn't sure what kind of design to use, so this is what I have:

Posted Image

Here he is with his unique double-edged curved lightsabre:

Posted Image

He's one of the 'Lost Twenty' Jedi Masters who left the Order, and a bust of him can be found in the archives. He was the second most-recent Jedi to leave, after Dooku. I haven't yet figured out a big backstory, or even a name so if anyone has any reasonable ideas, I'd love to hear them!  :sweet: When I have him figured out, I may make more MOCs or a comic or something. We'll see...

Here is his personal speeder bike. It's my own design based on his personality and character. He is an ex-Jedi trying to keep a low profile on some Tatooine-like Outer Rim planet, so I thought this suited its purpose well.

Sorry for the blurriness on some of those pics. I'd love to hear all your comments and criticisms. I'm open to improvements and ideas and I look forward to seeing your replies!  :wink:

Thanks!  :classic:

The speeders is awesome, a lot like the Weequay Tank, but smaller. Now I admit it was a cool discovery to see how far ROtta's stud hole went in, but the Jedi is just plain creepy!  :tongue:

His head is a little tall, but it's a good idea. His personal lightsaber looks like his curved horns on the side of his head- I don't know if you were planning it, but there is a resemblance, and it looks great. His speeder is also very detailed and fits his story well. All in all,  :thumbup: :thumbup:  up!

Ril-Daktoh.  You can thank me later for the name. :tongue:  

In all seriousness though, he seems like he would fit right in to the Star Wars Universe, and that speeder suits him well too.

He has to cut off his tail just to fit in his speeder? :tongue: Nice use of the Rotta head/body/plastic green blob with a face on it :thumbup:

Is he Jabba's skinny cousin? :laugh: The speeder really captures the feel for what would be a Tatooine theme. Very creative and nicely done. Now as for your jedi, that combination is something I would've never have thought of. Very clever and unique! Keep it up! :thumbup:

He is a little odd. I'll give you that.  :tongue:
I suppose the colour schemes do match. If I buy it, I'll be sure to MOC it into some kind of speeder/ship for him.
Thanks.

His species, like Ithorians, have heads that are too big for their bodies.  :laugh:
Good spot. I had noticed that of course!  :wink: I was just looking for a lightsabre combination that I hadn't yet seen.
Thank you for your comment.

Actually no. The area between the sides and under the slope is all hollow so his tail fits in nicely with him. All part of the design.  :grin:

Thank you. I wanted to make it look old and dull so I used brown, dark tan and bley and gave it horns.  :classic:

Actually, I thought it was Asaj Ventress's.
When people are force to look at a glass of water that is exactly half-full, some will say
that is is half-full and some say it is half-empty.
However, the world is controlled by the people who say
"Hey! My glass had more in it. And it was a different glass! Who's pinching my beer?!?!"

Amazing minifig and speeder bike MOCs ADHO15. Iespecially like that Jedi it has something awesome about it or maybe is just my love to this alien species from SW represented in a minifig  :tongue:  :thumbup: . The speeder is awesome too, I like the details you add with the "spikes" that come out from the sides of the speeder  :thumbup: .

Great use of Rotta. That is one mean looking speeder, it reminds me of a troll version of a speeder bike. Is that competition still running here to combine another theme with star wars? If so I reckon if you put a troll on it, it would be perfect.

Thanks! Good idea, but I don't have any of those trolls and it'd probably be too big to fit on.  :tongue:

Seeing as yours is the only suggestion so far, posades, I guess his name stands as Ril-Daktoh.
