Ending Creepy Minifig Faces

Postby The Jinja Ninja » Sat Mar 07, 2009 5:14 pm

So, most of us hate the creepy CW minifig faces, right? We also know that you can remove printing to some degree of precision with a pencil eraser (e.g. my Lissarkh). Why not combine both and solve the problem? Here's a quick Photoshop mockup of how one might improve the Mace Windu head, as an example:

Which no. do you prefer? Got any further suggestions?

My opinion: it's as creepy as ever. It looks a tad better, but no less creepy and still unpleasant. You can get rid of the crease lines all you want, but nothing will improve those demonic eyes...

I'd have to go with 2, the other ones make him look too feminine.

:lol: I removed all the white in Photoshop, and it managed to somehow look even wrong-er. Still, gives you some perspective - Exo-Force ain't so bad now, is it? :p

I never had a problem with the Exoforce heads, they manage to look good while not fitting with the rest of the minifig faces. My issue with these is they don't look good period. But I digress...
