Deadpool Daze - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
Love him or hate him, there's no denying that Deadpool is arguably the most popular character for customizers to tackle. The theme of this challenge is simple: all Deadpool, all the time.
- Any version of Deadpool, from any continuity/universe, is fair game. And, yes, all of the members of the Deadpool Corps count.
- In addition to the man himself, you may also create an amalgam of Deadpool and any other character that you like. You're not limited to the Marvel Universe, so, you can mix-and-match Wade with anyone or anything. Deadpool Betty White, Deadpool Voltron, Deadpool Batman, etc.--the possibilities are endless.
- Likewise, if you don't want to make a figure, you may also give a vehicle or playset a Deadpool redeco.
- If you submit multiple custom figures/things as a single contest entry, they ALL have to be "Deadpool-ized". For example, Deadpool accompanied by a "normal" Wolverine figure would not be acceptable. Wolverine would also have to be dressed-up like Deadpool to make it a legal entry.
- You may utilize whatever base bodies, parts, materials, and tools you like to bring your unique vision of the "Merc with a Mouth" to life. Which three variations of Wade Wilson will out Deadpool all the others and come out on top and snag the gold, silver, and bronze awards?
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.
