All hail the mighty television, love it or hate it there is no denying the vast amount of content it has produced since it's creation. For this contest we set out sights on the rich shores of TV Land. Simply make a custom of any character or person that appears on a television show; past, present or future. Whether it be reality shows, the news, commercials, mini-series, sitcoms, dramas, or any of the rest; they are all an acceptable source for entries. Multi media characters are acceptable, but you must make the version of that character that appears on television. So an Adam West Batman is allowed, but a comic book or movie version would not be.

-After some consideration puppets will be allowed. You just can't have a TV theme contest and leave out classics like Sesame Street, Thunderbirds or the just can't.

-Pro wrestlers are allowed in this contest if they are part of a televised program. It can be a regularly scheduled show like Raw, a Pay-per-view special, or just a local public access show. As long as they are televised in some way they are allowed for this contest.

-Animation/cartoons and claymation are not allowed for this contest.

-Entries may come from shows that haven't aired yet. For example entries for the show Defiance that is set to air on the Sci-Fi channel would be acceptable entries.

-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..

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.

What was the entry? I know one got removed since it was a cartoon, and another got removed because it was spotted on another site.

I know you said no animated characters, but what about live-action characters in an animated style?
