Shenanigans - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
...and now for something completely different. Customizing is a lot of hard work and long hours, so naturally we take it pretty seriously. Not this time though, the goal of this contest is to make a funny custom. The content of this contest is wide open, the only requirements are that it be silly, ridiculous or just funny.
There are a few different ways to approach this contest. You could go for the straight up silly characters like Dog Welder, Condiment King, G'Nort or Squirrel Girl. You can go the 'Mort' route with characters so out there it's ridiculous, like Rainbow Raider, Crazy Quilt or Ten-eyed Man. Or just humorous variants of normal characters like Earth X Wolverine, Peter Porker, or Bikini Time Deadpool. Of coarse you're not limited to these options. Any entry that you think will give your fellow Realmers a chuckle is valid for this contest.
-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.
