It's a tie between Hulked-Out Heroes and Alien vs Predator--considering that there is already a Marvel-themed contest active, for variety's sake, I'm going to go with Alien vs Predator for my tie-breaker decision. Thanks for voting, and here are your choices for the July 15th contest (only pick one please):

#1 Art Alive
Reproduce a 2-dimensional piece of artwork as closely as you can in 3-dimensional customized toy form. You could do comic book panels/covers, movie posters, paintings, music album covers, etc. You may not use your own art, it has to be something that somebody else illustrated.

#2 Before They Were Heroes
Make a figure representing what a character looked like before they took on the role of a hero/adventure or gained superpowers. Family man Frank Castle (Punisher), Test Pilot Hal Jordan (Green Lantern), Officer Alex Murphy (Robocop), etc. While the name of the contest says heroes, villains will also be fair game.

#3 Extreme Eczema
Craft a custom of any character that has an unusual skin texture/condition. Scales, crags, bumps/warts, spikes, ridges, etc.--basically, anything that isn't normal and smooth (this contest would be ideal for showing off your dry brushing skills.) Marvel Comics' Thing, Freddy Krueger, Killer Croc, etc.

#4 Female Transformers
Create a custom of any female Transformer for this challenge. Because there aren't a lot of existing feminine Transformers, you may also design an original one or make a female version of a male Transformer (Megatronica, Optimus Prima Donna, Bumblebabe, etc.) instead.

#5 Retro Games
Time to go old school, when polygon counts were low and sprites were king, and make any character/thing from a console/computer video game released before the year 1995. Modern remakes of old games (Bionic Commando Rearmed for example), or new games intentionally made in the retro style (like Megaman 9 and 10), don't count--the game has to have been published pre-1995.

#6 Unmasked
Make any character without their mask/helmet/hood on, revealing their real face. The character doesn't necessarily have to have a secret identity, but they do have to normally wear some type of headgear that conceals their features.

Before They Were Heroes wins by one vote and shall be the July 15th contest. Here are you choices for the August 1st contest (please only pick one):

#1 Black & White
Oh no, Figure Realm's color dial is on the fritz! Make whatever you want, but your custom must be done up entirely in black, white, and shades of gray--no other hues are allowed.

#2 Canceled Figures
Any toy that was planned, but canceled, before it was put into mass production and released. Things like Legendary Comic Book Heroes Series 3, Marvel Legends Series 13 Crimson Dynamo and the henchmen pack-ins (which were replaced with the Onslaught BAF pieces), Spawn Series 35: Robot Wars, etc. The unreleased figure can't be an unsubstantiated rumor, there has to be documented proof (prototype photos, concept sketches, etc.)

#3 Caped Crusaders
For this challenge, simply make any character that wears a cape, cloak, mantle, or similar garment. Batman, Count Dooku, Dr. Strange, Spawn, Zorro, etc. You may not put a cape on a character that doesn't normally wear one.

#4 Museum of Curiosities
Make some kind of custom museum exhibit centered around the character of your choice. Think of stuff like an Iron Man suit in a glass case, the fossilized skeleton of Battle Cat, or the man-fly version of Baxter Stockman displayed in a box, pinned like a butterfly. Depending on what you choose to do, your entry could be a figure, a diorama, a collection of items/accessories, etc.

#5 Power of Grayskull
Any character/thing from Mattel's Masters of The Universe or She-ra franchises. The various toy lines, cartoons, live action movie, comics, etc. are all fair game as far as subject matter goes. You can also create an original MOTU character if you like.

#6 Sports
Make a custom of any athlete, real or fictional, past or present. Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Babe Ruth, Brett Favre, Muhammad Ali, Venus/Serena Williams, etc. Or you can just dress up other characters in sports-themed clothing (Spider-man in a football uniform for example.)
