    This thread is to discuss your avatar. It can be about why you chose it, what it means, and why you like it.
    I mainly created this so I can show off my new(kinda new) avatar. It is a frame from the Rogue One trailer that I edited so that it looks like it is firing. It looks especially cool when I am online, because it has that green satellite thingy where the Death Star lasers converge.
    Also, if anyone needs help picking an avatar, you can probably find some help here.

    Great idea for a thread! I agree on that green dot fitting well with your profile picture - it's a neat little concept.

    I am Mr. Holocron mainly because I wanted to pay homage to my predecessor, Lankist. He used to sport a similar profile picture on the SWTOR forums back when he was hosting an interactive paint adventure set in the Star Wars universe (the thing I'm now continuing in his stead on these very forums), so for me - the profile picture was my means of maintaining some continuity and as a sign of respect.

    Nice thread!

    Well, considering I change my avatar like daily...

    I found this one on tumblr and no words needed. Just enjoyed to see happier times for the Solo family.

    i don't have a cool story.
    i just love the new stormtroopers and wanted to "be" one here in the Cantina (they are nicely anonymous and largely inoffensive, i guess).
    but i love seeing others' avatars and hearing their cool stories ~ great thread!

    @PrincessLeiaCB3 i love that you change your avatar all the time ~ it's always fun to see what Leia you'll be wearing for the day!

    I like to change mine from time to time, but most often it's been some incarnation of The Doctor from the sci-fi series Doctor Who.

    My new favorite Indy movie, "The History of Future Folk."

    About a couple of guys looking for a way to save their home planet, and along the way they discover music and form a band.

    Hondo everyone!

    Wait.. I don't have my old bucket anymore? Not sure why. Ok well.. I was at a DC awesome con last year, and I will be again this year, when I came across the coolest droid in the Galaxy. The r2 builders club was there in force. Crazy cool stuff.

    I like it imperial. In hopes that Jyn Erso is a bit more complex and twisted like a double-agent or someone chaotic like the Lone Wanderer from Fallout. Not everybody ought to be little goody two shoes. At least in R1 this time around.

    It's of Rey. It's been of Rey for ... I'm not really sure exactly but always is of her for however long it's been I decided to select her as my avatar over Darth Plagueis. Mainly I choose my avatar as her is so much to do with how I relate to the character in a way only Luke did before her. We're almost exactly alike in every way. The biggest difference as I joked yesterday on another thread is she has hazel eyes, I have blue like her Grandfather. Haha. She's kind, loyal, strong, sensitive, and is waiting, hoping for something. As am I ... as am I .. in a way. One day and one day I will cosplay as her. :)

    I like to find different pictures with Leia in the Boushh disguise because I thought it was the coolest outfit she wore. I will deviate for fun. My fave are the ones I make with my toys.

    I picked this one
    upload_2016-5-10_21-45-43.jpeg
    of Luke Skywalker chillin' like he's Jamie Lannister because I'm a total goofball! But I think it's in really poor taste, so fine, I'll pick a more inspiring one.

    Well, my latest pic arose from a ruckus after a dinner out with the girls and guys at work. Obviously, as I spend so much time with these people, they know I'm a total nerd. Mostly they accept it in good humour, though they think I'm off my nut. And ya know, fair play. But anyway, we were having a good old chat about how I was interested in having a go at cosplay because it looked really fun, and we had a look at some of the characters I was interested in playing on the ol' interweb. A few of the younger girls (there is quite a diverse age group at my work) were astounded I could even contemplate wearing such things, and bet I wouldn't have the balls to do it. So of course, after arriving home after dinner and a few wines (OK, quite a few wines), I'm like, I'll show you guys, ha! So I pulled out the leotard (Don't ask) and improvised the rest of the costume with my riding boots, riding gloves, snowboard knee guards , an old belt, my swimming goggles and an old pillow case I cut the end off, took a pic, sent it to the gang, and went, huh, see! These young girls I work with worry way too much about their bodies and what people think of them. Which I wanna knock their skulls for, as they are so young and pretty and skinny. I'm trying to get them to lighten up a bit, and not be so self conscious about themselves. Anyway, the pic was there, so I thought I'd use it as an avatar here. I consider it part of the desensitization process, in order to get more comfortable with cosplaying and going out to conventions in costume.
