Announcing the Rockem' Sockem' Robots! Custom Contest

Postby Custom Showcase » Mon Jun 01, 2009 11:03 pm

Announcing the Rockem' Sockem' Robots! Custom Contest.

With the release of Terminator and the upcoming release of Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen this months contest revolves around everyones favorite scrap heaps ROBOTS!
Realmers get your pistons in line, make sure you have an oile change and a full alignment. Heres the rules:

1) Custom must be of a robot or cyborg, vehicles are not allowed unless they themselves are a robot. (ie War Machine no Bionic Commando or Cyborg from Teen Titans YES!)

2) ABSOLUTELY NO IRON MAN! Iron Man is not a robot, but a guy in a robotic suit. Various Iron Man villians and allies such as Ultimo and The Vision are 100% acceptable however.

3) NO Basic Transformers Repaints. Painting a movie figure with some silver and gold will not be accepted. Give him a whole new color, add some parts give him new hands, even give him (or her)some attached weapons.

4) Be creative and get those inventive ideas flowing! Your bot doesnt have to be from anything go crazy and be original, you know you have robotic parts in your fodder bins so put them to good use!

5) Photos with your emblem / signature will not be accepted. Please remove these as we want to keep all contests neutral an unbias to give everyone a fair chance!

First Place Winner will receive an exclusive custom piece from me!

Thanks guys and good luck to everyone,
Shinobitron

I think this is a contest where we're really going to see a lot of cool stuff! With so many great robots/cyborgs out there, I know I'll have a hard time narrowing my choices down.

If you wanted to be a stickler, and stretch the definition, I suppose one could make the argument that Tony Stark's artificial heart (particularly the movie incarnation) does make him a cyborg or sorts--I've seen real people with artificial knees, etc. joke that they're cyborgs. I'm not challenging the rule or anything, just thought I'd throw that out there.

He also had the robotic armor back in the 90s before they "killed him" and Rhodes became warmachine full time. You'd have to battle damage it to show it though.

Actually, War Machine is currently a cyborg, so would be eligable for entry - you'ld just have to make a suitless Rodney to show the fact.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I know that man, that Doctor on high.
And I know that he has done this deed a thousand time. But not once. No, Sir, not once, not ever has he been thanked!
But no more. For I say to you, "Bravo, Sir! BRAVO!"
