Trophy Room - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
The goal of this contest is to make a custom based off of the winning entries of past contests. Any entry that won a gold, silver or bronze in one of the contests is eligible. You are free to use your own recipe to make the entry, and you may make it in a different scale, but you must use the same version of the character that the original entry did. For example, if you choose Loose Collector's Wolverine that won gold in the 'Make Mine Marvel' contest you can only do that version of Wolverine and you may not change his costume.
-Not counting those still running, we've had 98 contests which gives us 286 contest winning entries to choose from. They can be found here.
-You may not choose your own trophy winning entries for this contest, you must pick someone else's entry to emulate.
-Diorama are only acceptable if you the trophy winner you picked for an entry was a diorama.
-As always there are no size restrictions for this contest. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done..
What are the rules of the contest?
It's hard to choose just one custom to vote on when there are tons of great entries, so Figure Realm has a unique voting system where you can vote on ALL the customs! When you click on an entry to view, there's a bar with buttons on it that lets you give the custom anywhere from 1 to 5 Stars. 1 Star means you think they could have done a better job on the custom while 5 Stars means you think they did a perfect job. The votes for each entry are added up when voting is closed and averaged-out to determine the winners. Also, don't abuse the system. Don't give your own custom 5 Stars and then give everyone else 1 Star to boost your rating. Remember, the votes are monitored.
Some points you might consider when casting your vote: Is the figure well-made? Is the paint smooth or crusty? Are there noticeable fingerprints on the sculpted parts? Is it an original custom? Is it accurate to the source-material (comics, photos, description in a book)? Are the pictures clear enough to see the details? Did the creator take the time to include a back-story or recipe? Is the custom so unbelievably awesome that you'd trade your girlfriend for it?
Craftsmanship and creativity are major factors to consider, but ultimately your vote should depend on how much you like the custom, and how well you feel it fits the contest theme.
