    I know he's not out yet but a Bob Ross skin for Sineor Massacre?

    How about 8-ball in a Luchador Getup? I like the idea of him adopting a mysterious masked wrestler persona but it being obviously him as how many other giant panda men are there in the sport?

    I really liked Parvatti's skin, way more than I liked Max'. If I am to be honest, I'd like to see Gata get a skin next, because she is my favorite of the Aristos so far. That being said, I'd love to see:

    Volleybal player Gata (Women's volleybal is a big thing in Brazil)
    Luchador 8-Ball (Awesome idea, I love it)
    Red Riding Hood Hexxer (The goodie basket is her hacking device)
    Big game hunter Luna (Also a good idea, especially because Luna comes across as quite the stuck up lady, so I don't see her getting a funny skin)
    Elvis Wild Bill (I think he fits the idea more than 8-Ball if we go young Elvis)
    Jedi (or space monk) Musashi

    How about Valkyrie in a Tura Satana inspired Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! outfit, with a switchblade.

    Gata needs a 1960's era go go dancer outfit.

    Hexer or Parvati as Maria from Metropolis.

    Hannibal in a historical Carthaginian outfit.

    @-V- , here's what I came up recently...

    Surf & Sand: Maximus swim suit (trunks/board shorts) and a surfboard instead of his shield.

    Holly Jolly Panda Bear: 8-Ball in a Santa Suit or....
    You Better Behave!: 8-Ball as the Krampus!

    Happy New Year: Lunah in a fancy/formal dress or Wild Bill in a tuxedo

    Haunts and Howls: Hexx3r in a traditional/stereotypical witch's outfit, and Gata in a Halloween/Black Cat costume (but not sexualized). Maybe sold together in a box? Bonus points if Hexx3r is riding a broom.

    Stop Talkin' Bull: Sr. Massacre as a Toreador

    Oktoberfest: Valkyrie in a dirndl holding a bunch of steins. Yes, I know she's probably not German, so it's mixing Scandinavian and Alpine cultures... but I think it's worth a shot.

    Dragon Tamer: Lunah or Hexx3r in a sorceress-esque type outfit.

    Queen of the Jungle: Lunah with a bow and arrow

    Day Off Mushashi - Mushashi on a well-deserved break, dressed very comfortably, sitting enjoying some tea or a book, not fighting, not wearing one of his fifteen other costumes, or having his head blown up/body shrunk. ;)

    When Doves Fly - Parvati in some wrap-around shades, a dope-ass trenchcoat, John Wu-ing it with her submachine guns... with doves flying up behind her. Of course.

    Back to Her Roots - Gata dressed up for Carnaval, or capoiera...

    Walk the Dinosaur - Gata in something like one of those T-Rex costumes.

    I see where you are going.

    Surf and Sand Max leads to Gata in a Baywatch one piece swimsuit with a rescue float in hand.

    Sr. Massacre in bunny slippers, boxers, tank top, and his mask partially rolled up with a cup of coffee in one hand and an Uzi in the other.

    I want a glam rock Valkyrie complete with flying V Guitar, her hair and makeup are 50% there anyway. [​IMG]

    Part of the thing with skins is they need to fit in with the characters in-universe. In that respect, some characters offer tricky thinking on skins.

    Hexxer, Mushashi, Wild Bill and Major Lunah guard their dignity and image very carefully and there's only so far they're likely to be willing to drift from that for any amount of sponsorship. So don't expect to see "Beach Volleyball Hexxer" or "Pink Pony Princess Lunah".

    Other characters, like Gata and 8-Ball, meanwhile, are more explicitly commercial and therefore more likely to do wacky stuff. Gata, for example, could do anything from her fashion range. 8-Ball will happily promote your brand of soft drink or latest Sushi Bar chain.

    Brainstorming within that, then, I could expect to see things like "Frontiersman Wild Bill" (in Davy Crockett hat) or "Uncle Sam Wild Bill" in full Stars and Stripes get-up. Perhaps Ottoman Lunah, with an old jezzail? Or Halloween Hexxer in a more explicitly "witchy" costume?

    I expect Lo Pan's Noodle Hut 8-Ball, and "Evening Wear Gata", for example.

    @precinctomega I can see your point on dignity: how about an EA Poe or Mark Twain skin for Wild Bill? Maybe Teddy Roosevelt as Rough Rider Wild Bill?

    And we really NEED a Belushi, Samurai Chef 8ball. Not because it's kind of insulting, but because that's just the sort of wacky, poor taste comedy 8ball ( and Belushi! ) are (were) so great at. Plus, this skin would annoy the crap out of Musashi. Probably have to give it an auto-Taunt vs MM. Panda Samurai Chef!

    I am torn, as I already have a big enough backlog of miniatures as it is, but I would like to see what they come up with for Wild Bill because he seems pretty tied to his cowboy persona.
