Same Base Custom Contest
For this contest we all start on level ground, everyone in this contest will start with the same base figure. We have chosen a DCUC Male Buck for the base to be used in this contest. To enter this contest we will all make a custom starting with the DCUC male figure. The sections from the elbow down to the hand and the knee down to the foot may be swapped out and changed, but everything else must be included in the finished custom.

-Any subject matter is fair game for this contest. Comics, movies, original characters, anything. The important part of this contest is creative and skillful use of the base body.

-The required pieces of the base can be arranged anyway you want. As long as all the parts are used in the custom, it doesn't matter how they are used. You can do anything you want to the base body.

-Any scale is open for this contest. Though you may be limit to only using the DCUC male body, you are not limited to the 1/12 scale. Giant size 1/18 characters, or small size 1/6 characters are also fair game. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done.
 
Please remember to follow the Contest Rules and to Vote Fairly.

I have to point out that the "Me, Myself & I Custom" doesn't fit the rules. The Starman buck is COMPLETELY different than the normal male buck.

I got to say...a few of the descriptions in the contest sound like they did not use the right DCU buck body...

No. See the reply I made to your earlier message, I pretty much list all the DCUC figures that have the body that we are using for this contest.

Can the body be cut and dremeled for mods? For example as in adding a different neck joint since one isn't shown?

You can cut into it, but you can't cut parts off to replace with other parts. The only way around that is if you still use the piece you cut off in some way. For example if you cut off the neck and replace it with a different neck joint it would be acceptable only if you still used the piece you cut off in some way.

So if I sculpt over the legs entirely, it still counts because they were there originally, right?

Where can I find a male buck figure I searched on Ebay and Amazon but couldnt find one

Male buck is customizer lingo, you'll have to search by specific character or just look through the DCUC figures until you find a plain one. So people like Flash, Hal jordan, Sea Camo Aquaman, Starman (the black one), Power Ring, Johnny Quick, Tomar , Spectre, Tomar Re (not the yellow one), Night Wing, Shark (you'd have to remove the fin from the back), Captain Atom, Black Lightning, Dr. Impossible, Sodam Yat, Kyle Rayner, Nautkeloi, or Medphyll. Bodies like that.

Just a plain male buck like the silver one in the first picture, The idea is for everyone to start with the same blank slate.

Is the 'skinnier' DCUC male buck allowed, e.g., like the one used for Black Lantern Abin Sur?
Thanks, Green Skin!

Can the base body be sculpted onto? Example: armor chestplate on chest or a large belt buckle on lower torso or blades on shoulders.
Green Skin -

Yes! As long as all the pieces are included you can do whatever you want to the base body.

When we say base, we're meaning torso and upper arms and legs correct? I mean if I wanted to use different forearms, or different boots would that be against the rules?
Green Skin -
Saturday, November 24, 2012
You are correct, you can use different forearms or boots. The silver body in the first pic shows all the parts you need to use.
