    If he is a redhead, I'd say he is related to the Stark family...

    I don't have it, but I've liked those images from "Fizzi's Slightly Used Ships" in SWAJ #9. My personal favorite was this baby - so much so that I decided one of my fanfic characters just had to have her:

    Page 64 of the first Star Wars Sourcebook, top pic that looks like a crotch rocket speeder bike. It is nowehere on the web, the names of the bikes captioned do not match it.

    The one listed as the Ikas-Ando [sic] StarHawk? No, it definitely doesn't look like Hondo's chopper versions.

    Exactly. I googled every damned thing on the page, pinterest, etc etc. If I had a scanner this'd be easier.

    Maybe the speederbike in the Sourcebook needs to be retconned from the Starhawk into the Sunwolf?

    You know what you need to do, then.

    Buy a scanner. :p

    Get a printer-scanner combo. They're cheap.

    I love this thread. Going to have to our through these pages over the next few days. Those old B&W illustrations were very inspirational to me when I was younger and practicing drawing.

    I recall hoping to have eventually submitted something to them (example 1 & example 2).Afterall, if another fan by the name of Chris Trevas could do it, what's to stop me? (oh, yeah, a massive gap in talent! ;)). By time I got around to seriously considering it, they had gone out of business/lost the license.

    The stuff reminds me of how much I loved the late-80's/early/mid-90's ship design aesthetics. Just what is so damn wrong with having boxy ships anyways?

    Still, it's neat to see this thread- dwelling on these sort of illustrations partially inspired the idea of a new project thread I'm working on debuting in the next week or two...

    HOLY **** THAT IS AMAZING. Okay, fallen in love with that picture. It has SWORDS, ARMOUR, HOODS and BILLOWY STUFF.

    THOSE ARE FOUR OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS.

    Can we make the ST revolve around this image, please?

    Owning Tridents for the Mon Cal is properly like owning an old sword to us :)

    Or its a war trophy from the Clone Wars, since we see the Quarren use them in both Clone Wars shows.

    Looks to me like someone was drunk at the helm. Now they can't get their ISD out of their station. :p

    That ISD one is a great concept- using the forward docking bay to load/unload supplies, etc would make perfect sense there.

    Afaik WEG also had Mon Cals use them in an old war with the Quarren.

    It's a repair yard ;) the ImpStar had a run in with the Khuiumin Survivors (yep the same ones from I,Jedi ) and later gets blown up by them and a group of Rebels whilst in the yard.

    It's everyone's favorite Smuggler spokesperson and fringe pinup model!

    She really needed to be picked up by the novels like Cracken did.

    She is in Galaxy of Fear and X-Wing Rogue Squadron (at least I assume she would be part of the Black Curs that get mentioned).

    Is that a fat a stormtrooper or an alien one at the top?
