Comic Fusion II - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
Fusions, hybrids, combos, amalgams...whatever you choose to call them they have had an undeniable to comic fans for decades. Some of them turn out well and compliment each other like Pb&j, but others just shouldn't happen and turn out like chocolate and trout. The objective of this contest is to create a truly awesome custom of a fusion character. Comics are an obvious choice but you may select characters from TV, movies, books, and cartoons as well.
You may create you own fusion of characters, or you may use one of the many fusion characters that already exist. For example: Spider-Boy, Dark Claw, Super Soldier, Amazon, Iron Lantern, Composite Superman, Gotenks, and Gogeta.
-Characters can be a fusion of 2-4 characters. Anything more than that and it gets a little too muddle. Combo Man is an exception to this rule.
-'Head Swap' customs will not be allowed for this contest. Entries for this contest must be more involved than just a simple head swap. For example you can't just pop a Wolverine head onto a Hal Jordan body and call it a Wolverine/GL fusion. To be clear, head swapping is allowed but only if it is part of a bigger recipe.
-Dioramas are not 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.
