Your favorite fan-made swag?

Recommended Posts

The other thread got me to thinking: what are some of your favorite fan-made swag that you've received?

My personal favorite was at my last major tourney. I was flying a Separatist list that had Maul (w/ Palpatine), Dooku, and Grievous. Another player had been giving out alt-arts featuring those characters, and when he saw my list he gave me cards for all four characters. They're gorgeous, double-sided (pilot on one side, crew on the other, aside from Palp/Sidious), and even included alt-art Hate cards featuring Maul and Ventress. I use them over the default cards whenever possible.

I got a cool Jake "Mooney' card once. Then there are some really nice mynock cards (old lockdown). Timo7777 made the arguably best Inquisitor (1.0 unfortunately). And I once won some awesome Lego cards.

And probably the best has to be the St. Louis heroic!

But those are just the ones I kept, I gave away more than I remember.

I was given a sticker on a visit to Melbourne. Proudly slapped it on one of my Plano boxes, because those dudes were all awesome and it was a good X-Wing memory.

Stickers seem like a great idea.  I know I already stick some plain Star Wars kids sitckers on my boxes, and having local folks hand those out would be a great way to remember a local scene, without messing with the in-game stuff (which a lot of folks can be quite particular about).

It’s really hard to have a favorite. I think the NTX target locks because they were the first unofficial swag I’d ever gotten, and it opened my eyes to “hey that’s something I can do as well!”.

Some of my favorite 2.0 swag is still from Mynock Open soon after 2.0 launch.

Holographic Maul card, just because it took 3 wins to actually get it.

I fly Soonts a lot and this plastic MSPAINT Version is my go to. Get compliments on it, and at LVO someone even took a picture of it.

My favorite fan stuff is stickers of your squad/podcast/whatever.  Those get stuck to my template tray!  Alt Arts, especially if its something I'm flying, are always appreciated.  As a Judge/TO, I love handing out crit tokens because they are usually immediately useful.  I was handed a couple this last weekend.  I'm really diggin' the Salt Squadron ones.

However I think I **need** that Duchess alt art.

I love stickers! I have a few from some groups I met up with at worlds like the Tucson Raiders (well played guys, well played). 
 

I’ve been handing out my group’s stickers as a memento as well for a while now. I’m hoping we will have some cards I can hand out later this year.

I don’t have good photos of my favorites, but mentions to: Thule Squadron and the 4 PacMan ghosts (the phantom pilot generic in 4 colors), Liberty Squadron and their droid run, and the full art Brazil guys who did a fundraiser for their swag to help pay costs of coming up to worlds.

I need to redo them, but the one alt-art I tried producing myself using the lightweight frame artwork:

I think I have the Starviper equivalent - the Microthrusters ship ability is written as "Bendy Barrel Rolls! Woohooo!"

Oh man, that one is awesome! Great work! I wish I had that one.

Was this infinite arenas template? Or was there another template you used?

TY! That Hate.  I understand why you didn't put it into wider circulation, but still.

For anyone out there who wasn't playing in Maine two and a half years ago, this Manaroo was IMPRESSIVE.  It's 5x7 inches.

You give me too much credit...I wanted to put that one into wider circulation but the choice between the 4 went to a poll and "Unlimited Palps" won out. :)
