Pack your sunblock and sandals, Swimsuit Special is the winner by one vote! Here are your choices for the July 1st contest (only pick one please):
#1 Alien vs. Predator
The hunt is on, but who will survive? Any character/thing from the Aliens/Predator movies, comic books, novels, toy lines, video games, etc. is fair game for this contest, including human characters like Ripley or Dutch. No crossovers with other companies like Batman vs. Predator though.
#2 Angels & Demons
Make a custom of either an angel or a demon for this challenge. The angelic or demonic character can come from any source material (religion/mythology, comic books, video games, television/movies, etc.) Abaddon, Angela, Belial, Gabriel, Lucifer, Mammon, Metatron, Michael, Nergal, etc.
#3 Character Specific
A contest where you can only make customs of a single character; if you pick this option, then please also post which character you would like to see as the focus (Batman, Deadpool, Snake-Eyes, etc.) If this is the winning theme, but no single character has a majority, then I'll pick one of them from the nominees.
#4 Figure Realm Mascot
Design an original character that you feel represents the Figure Realm site/community. The only requirement is that you have to put the words "Figure Realm" somewhere on the figure or one of its accessories (write it across the front of the character's shirt or on the back of their cape, sculpt it in relief on a shield or a pair of brass knuckles, paint it on as a tattoo, etc.)
Oh man, somebody dropped a Gamma Bomb on your favorite character, and now they're mean and green! Take whoever you want (even non-Marvel characters) and give them a Hulk-tastic makeover. Note that you won't be allowed to make characters that have already been altered, directly, or indirectly, by the effects of gamma radiation (no Hulk, Doc Samson, She-Hulk, Abomination, etc.)
#6 Military Madness
Make a custom of any kind of soldier, real or fictional, from any time period (a modern U.S. Marine, medieval knights, ancient Japanese Samurai, Metal Gear's Solid Snake, Star Wars Clone/Storm Troopers, etc.)
