Small Fries Custom Contest
For this contest we focus on the small, the short and the vertically impaired. The objective is to create a custom that is smaller than the standard figures of that scale. You may choose your entries from any area of fiction or nonfiction; they may be animals, teens, or just unusual so long as they do not measure up in height. Think of people like Damian Wayne, Puck, Antman, Wasp, Gollum, Molly Hayes, Wilykit & Wilykat, Franklin Richards, and Yoda.

-For the 6 inch scale entries need to be 5 inches or shorter to qualify. For the 12 inch scale entries can be no taller than 10 inches. For the 3 3/4 inch scale must be 3 inches or shorter to qualify. For all other scales entries must be no taller than 80% the height of a normal person for that scale.

-Original creations are allowed for this contest, and dioramas are allowed only if they focus on a custom that fits the entry requirements.

-Vehicles are not allowed for this contest, even if the pilot meets the entry requirements.

-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..
Please remember to follow the Contest Rules and to Vote Fairly.

does it have to be INSCALE to a certain toy line?
for example can I do a six inch robin figure but not made to be specificly in the same scale as any batman line but its still a small character, or again for example Virgil or Max from 'mighty max' toys and cartoon....there was never a action figure toy line so could I make him in any scale?

Sorry but it has to be in scale with something, otherwise there is no point to the contest. If there was never a toyline, then choose one of the common scale (3 3/4, 6, or 12 inch).

So, let's say we wanted to do Carl, to go with Rick from the Walking Dead. Since the Walking Dead series is 5 inches, could one use a 3.75 inch figure to do Carl? (If you're not aware of what I'm talking about, Carl is a child, Rick is an adult.)

C'mon man, who doesn't know Carl For 5 inch scale anything 4 inches or smaller is acceptable, a 3.75 inch figure would be well within the rules.

So no mater what size the action figure is...... You have to make it 80% of its current height?

No, not at all. Figures have to be around 80% or less for the standard size figures for that scale. So in the 6-inch scale your entry can be no taller than 5 inches, he can be smaller than that but he can't be taller. You don't actually have to cut down an existing figure to 80% of it's original size. I'm assuming most people will use parts from smaller sized toy lines.
