Sunglasses (FBTB Alphabet fighter contest 2013) by xiei22, on Flickr

I'm IN!

Meet SUNGLASSES,the reserved-but-somehow-cool pilot, with his D.A.B. (Digital Ace Brain) Lt. Peppy. :D

A little profile:
He calls himself "Sunglasses", and doesn't like people looking to much at him. He always wear sunglasses, and even his helmet need them to be used.

Anyway, that nick-name has made him well-know among the spaceship-testers.
He always flies with his " D.A.B. " (Digital Ace Brain), an old way to improve biological abilities to the stress of new/experimental machines. Sunglasses call his D.A.B. " Lt. Peppy "

Adumson "Dodgy" Dralex by Dodge..., on Flickr

Adumson was born in the Corellian system on the planet of Drall, four years after his family immigrated from the planet of Talus in search of a new start. Adumson's parent's provided him with a modest farming lifestyle and as many opportunities as they could as he had no brothers of sisters. In his early years, Adumson was known for his quickness and cunning, earning himself the nickname 'Dodgy'.

For his secondary schooling, Adumson's parents sent him to the learning centers on Corellia where he studied the planets and beings beyond his own system. After five long years away from home, Adumson longed to return to the family farm on Drall. Before he was able to secure passage home, he learned of his parents death at the hands of a rouge Sullustan. It was a this point that he decided to forge a new path.

Adumson had heard tales of the growing rebellion against the Empire and the Corellian-born rebel hero Han Solo. He decided to seek out this band and use his talents to aid in their cause. He now fights alongside these comrade, always ready for the next encounter.

Klagnon "Klag" Magoofu is a pilot-for-hire. After a near-fatal wreck ended his underground swoop racing career, Klag became a male model. One day while signing holo-graphs (sponsored by SulLUST Magazine), he was approached by Umu Looptu, a scientist involved in the top-level "Alpha Fighter Project" for the Rebellion. He knew of Klag's past somehow and was looking for test pilots. After a cliched back-and-forth about piloting being a lifetime ago and how he'd never go back, Magoofu agreed to enlist in the program as a test pilot to... reclaim his former glory or something.

If I put swords on my figure's back does he have to have them on in the cockpit ?

Couple of questions: Are we allowed to choose between upper- and lower-case versions of the letters for our builds ("a" vs. "A", for example)?

Also, about the division of prizes... I'm assuming that the winner takes 1st prize, and the losing finalist takes 2nd. But who gets 3rd?

Vuko Kelbis, a Rodian starfighter, fought during the Clone Wars for the clone army. Unfortunately he lost his left arm in the Battle of Coruscant. He had it replaced with a carbonite replica.

Give a big hello to Sir Luincius del Refrantdio!

Image

Sir Luincius del Refrantdio was quite a young lad when he found an abandoned spaceship. With millions of credits in it. Now he is one of the richest pilots in the galaxy. Although he would much rather sit down and relax than fly a ship, he still is a fantastic pilot. He also has one eye.

The winner of the "losers bracket" takes third. Basically the two that lost the polls in the final four will be pitted against each other at the same time the winners are.

Nope, weapons/accessories can be stored while piloting. Also hair and headgear can be swapped for helmets as needed. They can't change clothes each round though, it has to be the same figure throughout the contest.

Jud Raynor by BrickJunky, on Flickr

Jud Raynor has been building star fighters since he could walk. Growing up as a mechanic's son, he quickly learned the ins and outs of fixing broken down ships. After his father blew up the sail barge of a notorious Hutt, as well as himself, Raynor took off on the run to avoid repercussions for his families debt to the gangster. Jud makes his way by hiring his skills out and often selling old star fighters he fixes. Most of the fighters he builds may have odd shapes and configurations, however each has incredible speed and maneuverability. With an old world demeanor, Raynor finds himself following in his father's footsteps.

Darth Dingle; self proclaimed Sith Lord. Nothing much is known about him except he is very powerful in the dark side of the force.He seems untrained in the use of the force, but it does not mean he is not dangerous and should be approached with extreme caution, both Jedi and Sith have fallen to his lightsaber. He has been seen piloting fighters in a meditative state suggesting he uses the force as a way to pilot his fighters with deadly accuracy.

here goes...

Asvanar, very little is on record of this individual other than witness reports of his heroics as a Rebel pilot. He was "the" Jedi spy, originally tasked and trusted by the council to highlight Separatist plans, he was presumed killed in action during the Jedi massacre...

Spy, Smuggler, Bounty Hunter and now Rebel, this capable and dangerous individual has a secret base hidden in an Asteroid where he has stored a selection of StarFighters...

Elma Snuffleupagus

Elma Snuffleupagus by Trooper10.0, on Flickr

Elma Snuffleupagus is a synthetic humanoid from the planet Baraq-44. She was formerly a kindergarten teacher before a planet-wide schools shutdown due to civil unrest caused by the attempt to overthrow the government by the underhanded T-Par-T. With widespread chaos, Elma, along with many others fled to the stars, taking work where they could find it. Elma quickly discovered her talent as a starship pilot and took work as charter-flight interstellar star pilot across the outer rim. Whenever there are unruly children on board her flights, she is sure to snap them into line and teach them their A-B-C's (or whatever the Star Wars equivalent of that is)...but if anyone threatens those children, she goes all momma-rancor on them!

Is this only English letters or can we make the Aurebesh equivalent?

Hex Tobol

Image
Hex Tobol by naugem, on Flickr

Hex was born in Empire-controlled Coruscant, and when he grew-up was recruited into the imperial forces. He became a good pilot, but during a skirmish with the rebels his TIE fighter was shot down and he was injured in the head. Due to the disorientation caused by the injury he was discharged, and went back to Coruscant to his family. Looking for a cure, he decided to undergo cyborg augmentation. He got a headband implanted, which cured his problem, incremented his intelligence and gave him the ability to talk directly with computers. He got a job as a computer-liaison at a Koensayr Corporation ships factory, but after a time he realized he didn't care for that job, as he missed flying. He went to his boss to quit, but his boss convinced him to take another position that had recently become open. He became a finder. He now scourges the galaxy, looking for different technologies and technological advancements that might be useful to Koensayr Corporation.
