When a well loved franchise gets adapted to a new media they tend to pick up new faces along the way. Sometimes it's a success and the character becomes a permanent part of the franchise, like Harley Quinn from Batman TAS. Other times not so much, like Spyke from X-Men Evolution. For this contest imagine you are the one asked to design a new character. The objective is to choose a fictional team or organization and create an all new member.

****Existing characters are not allowed, entries must be of characters you create.****

-You are free to make up any back story for your character as you wish, including incorporating existing characters into it. Sometimes a good back story is the all that separates the 'Haryley Quinns" from the 'Spykes'.

-Unofficial groups are also fair game for this contest. For instance, you may create a character for Spider-Man's rogues gallery or a new member of the Bat Family even though neither are technically teams.

-Dioramas are not allowed for this contest.

-As always there are no size restrictions for this contest. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done.. 

What is the contest schedule?
Begins: Contest Closed
Ends: May 15th, 2014 - Last day for submissions. No exceptions! Cut off is at midnight Central Standard Time.
Voting: May 16th - 22nd.
Managed By: Green Skin

What are the rules of the contest?
  • Please use the form here to submit your custom figure.
  • At least a paragraph description is required with your entry. This paragraph, at a minimum, should answer the following questions:
    • How was this custom customized?
    • How does the custom fit into the contest theme?
  • You may submit up to three different entries for the contest.
  • Please only submit figures that were created for this contest. Do not submit old figures from the Showcase or previous contest entries.
  • Your entry should not be posted on this website, any other website, or anywhere on the internet until the contest is completely over.
  • The pictures for your entry will remain hidden until the contest ends and the voting begins.
  • Your identity will remain hidden until after the voting completes.
  • Do not include names, logos, signatures or anything on the pictures that will give you away as the creator of the custom. We want to keep the customizer's identity a secret until the contest is over.
  • Don't wait until the last day to submit your entries. If your internet is down, or something happens beyond your control, you will miss the contest! Also keep in mind how many customs you can submit in one day. You may not be able to submit all your entries in one day.
  • The contest is purely for fun... well... and bragging rights!
How does the contest voting work?
Anyone can vote for their favorite customs in the contest, you don't even have to submit anything to the contest! You do have to be logged-in to your Figure Realm account though so we can keep track of the votes. Only appointed Figure Realm staff can see the votes, so anonymity is guaranteed. Voting begins once the entry deadline is met and lasts for a week.

It's hard to choose just one custom to vote on when there are tons of great entries, so Figure Realm has a unique voting system where you can vote on ALL the customs! When you click on an entry to view, there's a bar with buttons on it that lets you give the custom anywhere from 1 to 5 Stars. 1 Star means you think they could have done a better job on the custom while 5 Stars means you think they did a perfect job. The votes for each entry are added up when voting is closed and averaged-out to determine the winners. Also, don't abuse the system. Don't give your own custom 5 Stars and then give everyone else 1 Star to boost your rating. Remember, the votes are monitored.

Some points you might consider when casting your vote: Is the figure well-made? Is the paint smooth or crusty? Are there noticeable fingerprints on the sculpted parts? Is it an original custom? Is it accurate to the source-material (comics, photos, description in a book)? Are the pictures clear enough to see the details? Did the creator take the time to include a back-story or recipe? Is the custom so unbelievably awesome that you'd trade your girlfriend for it?

Craftsmanship and creativity are major factors to consider, but ultimately your vote should depend on how much you like the custom, and how well you feel it fits the contest theme.

Hi, what about a from scratch custom contest, like a 100% MADE by the customizer.
Green Skin - Tuesday, May 6, 2014
While that would be an interesting contest, I just don't think many people would enter that one.
JayBlazeXGen - Tuesday, May 6, 2014
I see your point, thank you though

Hello, I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this comment, but I cam across this website while searching for a Post action figure (part of the X men universe). He is one of my all time favorite characters based on looks alone. I would love if there was anyone who currently has a Post they would be willing to sell, or if someone would like to make one for me. I wish I was half as artistic as the amazing artists on here, but sadly I am not. If there is anyone who is interested, let me know. Thank you

Hello Unfortunately this is not the right place to post thing. Posting this on the forum would be a much better place for it, as more people will see it.

can we do henchmen? like hydra, aim something like that
Danyx Eleven - Saturday, April 12, 2014
Green Skin (contest owner) said to me: "There are no restrictions on the group, it can be any group you want." I would assume it extends to this
Green Skin - Saturday, April 12, 2014
Correct, henchmen are okay.
newbie_customizer - Saturday, April 12, 2014

Do you guys plan to make a diva contest? :-)
Green Skin - Monday, April 7, 2014
Diva contest? Like a women only contest, or specifically bad ass women?
migzflickz - Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Yes.. Like the winter of women contest.
Green Skin - Monday, April 14, 2014
Groovy, I'll add it to the list.
migzflickz - Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Yay.. Thanks.. :-)

Does the group need to be currently a part of the series/universe it belongs to, or can it be a past group? IE disbanded, defeated, merged, etc
Green Skin - Friday, April 4, 2014
There are no restrictions on the group, it can be any group you want.

here's a contest idea.....dollar toy could only use action figures from the dollar toy , to make up any amazing customs.......this should be interesting.......let's put those customier to work, and let their talents shine.
Green Skin - Monday, March 31, 2014
Interesting idea, I like it.
Patraw - Wednesday, April 2, 2014
I also agree that's a good concept for a custom contest. A couple of thoughts: (1) You might consider including fast food toys along with dollar store toys, as they're also inexpensive, easy to obtain, and of similar quality. (2) I think it would be wise to stipulate that most, or all, of the custom's base/parts have to come from cheap toys, otherwise someone might just stick a dollar store toy head on a Marvel Legends, or something similar, which would kind of defeat the purpose of the challenge.
windblock2007 - Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Sounds good,let's make it happen.
ShyGuyWolf - Sunday, March 30, 2014

Green Skin - Monday, March 31, 2014
