The one thing that 99% of customs have in common is basic human anatomy. Everything has a head, two arms and two legs. The challenge of this contest is to get away from that. All entries for this contest must have inhuman anatomy. Aliens (Starro's, Metroids, Greys, Brood), mythical hybrids (mermaids, minotaur, satyr, centaur) and anatomical mutations (Angel, Gorgon, Beak) are all valid entries.

-Animals are considered fair game for this contest. The only restriction is that they must be the focus of the contest entry. Entering Lockjaw, Battle Cat or Krypto into the contest is perfectly fine, however entering Tally Hawk and calling Quicksilver one of his accessories is not.

-Mechanical augmentations are not valid entries for this contest. The non human anatomy must be biological in nature. So people like Dr. Octopus, Coat of Arms, Cable, etc. are not allowed.

-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 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. Does the figure have to be an actual character? Or can it be, for example, just a random horse or something?

If I'm understanding the rules correctly, no mechanical entities are allowed, only organic ones? I couldn't, for example, make Transformers G1 Laserbeak or Ramhorn, even though both their robotic forms (condor and rhino, respectively) and alternate forms (cassettes) are both non-humanoid?

Or does the prohibition on "mechanical augmentations" only apply to a cyborg-type situation like the Dr. Octopus example you gave?

Correct that is aimed at instances like Dr. Octopus. Mechanical entities like Transformers are allowed.

Would a 'bio-mechanical' being be acceptable, ie: something in the vein of an H.R. Giger creation-along the lines of the "Alien" or the Eve from "Hybrid", but not exactly that?
Green Skin -

That would be allowed yes.

Do entries have to be characters/figures from a certain movie/toyline/myth or can you create an original "alienated" custom?
Green Skin -

Entries can be from anything, even your imagination.

Wings-yes, spikes-no, eagle talons-yes.

I assume by "spikes: no", you mean it couldn't be a human with just spikes, not that spikes are not allowed at all?
Green Skin -

Correct.
