It's voting time again! Want to help decide the next contest, now's your chance.
#1 Trophy Case
The object of this challenge is to pick any custom that has won a gold, silver, or bronze trophy in one of Figure Realm's many contests and make your own version of it. You don't have to use the same recipe that the original creator did, and you're free to make improvements/changes, but you have to make the same version of the character that they did [for example, let's say you picked sinag55's Heath Ledger Joker (gold winner of the Vile Volitions II challenge), then that's what you have to make a custom of, you can't make some other incarnation of the Joker character instead]. Take note that, if they have any, participants may not choose their own trophy winning entries, they must pick somebody else's work to emulate, not their own.
#2 Gender Bender III
An oldie but a goodie, we all know the drill here. For this contest simply take your favorite character and make a custom of them as the opposite gender. Megaman becomes Megawoman. Samus Aran becomes Sam Aran. Marcus Fenix becomes Marcia Fenix. Etc, etc.
#3 Food for Thought
Customizing is hungry work, and this challenge will only make it worse! The goal of this one is to make a custom figure that revolves around food in some way. The character can actually be living/sentient foodstuff (Pizza the Hutt, Powdered Toast Man, Food Fighters, etc.), be a food mascot (Ronald McDonald, Tony the Tiger, Charlie the Tuna Fish), etc.
#4 Warriors of Middle Earth
For this contest we focus on the brave warriors and magical creatures of Middle Earth. There are the usual suspects like Gollum, Boromir, Gandalf, Aragorn, Thorin, Sam, Bilbo, etc. But there are also Tom Bombadil, Melkor, Hurin, Beren, Tullkas and the two blue wizards that Gandalf can't remember. All of the inhabitants of Middle Earth are open for this contest; past, presend and future.
#5 Glow in the Dark
Never trip on your toys at night again! The goal of this contest is simple: Make a custom that glows in the dark. The entire figure doesn't have to glow (unless you want it to), just a part of their body, or one of their accessories is fine. You can use GITD plastic, paint, stickers, etc., to achieve the luminous effect, but no cheating with digital photo manipulation! As far as subject matter goes, you're allowed to make whatever you want, but at least one of your entry photos MUST exhibit the GITD feature at work.
