This contest takes aim at the first person shooter genre of games. To enter simply make a character from any FPS game. Stuff like DOOM, Duke Nukem 3D, HALO, Halflife, Hexen, James Bond 007, Medal of Honor, Quake, Timesplitters, Turok, Unreal, Wolfenstein 3D, etc. A list of first person shooters can be found here.

-Anyone from a FPS game can be made for this contest. It just has to be from the first person shooter genre, not just the character doing the shooting. Enemies, allies, or supporting cast from these games are all fair game.

-Light Gun Games are legal entries for this contest. So games like Duck Hunt, Virtua Cop, and House of the Dead are viable options.

-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.

  • 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 dog 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.

Since everyone's asking questions can you combine two fps characters into one? Like a character from arkham city crossed with a character from Halo?

Sorry no, despite what you'd be basing the character on it'd still be a new character that hasn't appeared in a FPS.

Would portal count? It's seems pretty fpsesque, but you don't actually shoot anything. Also Minecraft doesn't count, does it? I think I'm getting First person shooter, and first person mixed up

Here's a question. If there's a game based on an existing license (movie, comic, etc.), do we have to make the character in the exact costume he appears in in the game or can we use his look from a different medium? Let's assume in this case that the particular costume doesn't appear at all in the game, like say, if Master Chief sported a pink bikini in a tie in comic book.

If it's a game based on an existing license then you have to make the character as they appear in the FPS game. However if a character originated in a FPS game, then you can give them any costume you want. Since Halo originated as a First person shooter, you can indeed make him in a pink bikini if you like.

Do Fallout 3 and New Vegas qualify as first person shooters?

This was a tricky question. I did some digging and consulted a few people because I honestly wasn't sure. The general consensus is that they are action RPGs and not true first person shooters. So for this contest, no they don't qualify.
