Food for Thought - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
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 or drink in some way. Entries can be mascots of some sort, such as Chester Cheetah, Green Giant, Tony the Tiger, Burger King, or the Noid. They can also literally be made of food such as Powered Toast Man, Kool-aid Man, Major McCheese or the Food Fighters. Things like the Barnyard Commandos are allowed, even though they are only indirectly related to food.
-Occupations related to food are fair game for this contest. Such as chefs, butchers, bartenders, waiters, baristas, etc.
-Entries have to be more than just the inclusion of a food item, entries must revolve around food in some way. So you can't just slap a slice of pizza on a Ninja Turtle, or include a chimichanga with a Deadpool custom.
-No dioramas will be allowed for this contest.
-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.
