Starfield is still only out for early adopters, but already players are experimenting with the character creator.

As with most Bethesda games, your journey into the stars begins with creating a custom character.

Many players have had fun creating some familiar faces from TV and film... and also Starfield creator Todd Howard.

Walter White from Breaking Bad has already proven to be a popular choice, while another player has created a Tony Soprano build complete with gangster backstory and hero worship trait.

Many players are creating characters from other sci-fi franchises. After all, Starfield itself is full of references to other beloved series. Here are Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett lookalikes.

Another player has gone to infinity and beyond with this Buzz Lightyear creation, while another has been creating Sigourney Weaver's Ripley from Alien.

Ready to go to infinity and beyond!

Other players have noticed numerous similarities with TV series The Expanse and have created fitting characters.

Created the best version of Amos Burton I could manage - character creation offers so many opportunities!

There are also some creations based on other games. Here's Morgan Yu from Prey and Cal Kestis from Jedi Survivor.

It ain’t perfect but tried my hand at doing Morgan Yu from Prey.

The most famous of all though? Todd Howard himself, even if one fan took matters into their own hands to create a concept of what he may look like - outside of the game itself.

Other Todd Howard fans have gone further with mods. You can now add Todd Howard's face to the splash screen, all the paintings in the game, and even the flashlight. Howard really is the shining star in his own game.
