I actually think this is a great contest. For one, I'm terribly biased because it's a breeding ground for my own personal preference, Original figures. Secondly, looking harder for something to emulate is part of the fun- adds a bit of challenge to the act, and near-guarantees new figures as opposed to new submits. Moreover, though, it's something very different, and c'mon, how many robots and lighting bolts can you sculpt and grade? Bring on the red noses and face-paint, I say!
