Looks like we've got a tie between Custom Grab Bag and Scales & Tails. I like the two ideas about the same, so, instead of doing the usual tie-breaker, I've decided to just use both of them. So, the April 1st contest shall be Scales & Tails and the April 15th contest will be Custom Grab Bag (start thinking about characters you'd like to put into the bag of ideas.) Here are your six choices for the May 1st contest (only pick one please):
#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.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...it's also a good way to get sued for copyright infringement! Create a custom of anyone that's a knockoff/parody of another character. Deadpool (Deathstroke), Bizarro (Superman), Magog (Cable), etc. (If you choose this one, also post whether you want it to focus on ripoffs of a particular character or if you'd prefer it to be more general in nature.)
#3 Dynamic Duos
Two heads are better than one! Create a pair of customs representing any two-person team (heroes or villains). Sam & Twitch, Batman & Robin, Juggernaut & Black Tom Cassidy, Ren & Stimpy, Cloak & Dagger, Hawk & Dove, Power Man & Iron Fist, Milk & Cheese, Tomax & Xamot, The Wonder Twins, etc.
Customize a character, real or fictional, that's a patriotic icon of a specific nation/country/people. Characters that wear their country's flag as a costume, important historical figures and leaders, national mascots, etc. Captain America, Union Jack, Mohandas Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, Uncle Sam, 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.
After a cataclysmic event, all life has been forced below the planet's surface. Show us what your favorite characters would be like if they had always lived deep underground. Maybe their bodies have mutated or they use special gear to get around in the dark, it's all up to you and your imagination.
