New Additions - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
When a well loved franchise gets adapted to a new media they tend to pick up new faces along the way. Sometimes it's a success and the character becomes a permanent part of the franchise, like Harley Quinn from Batman TAS. Other times not so much, like Spyke from X-Men Evolution. For this contest imagine you are the one asked to design a new character. The objective is to choose a fictional team or organization and create an all new member.
****Existing characters are not allowed, entries must be of characters you create.****
-You are free to make up any back story for your character as you wish, including incorporating existing characters into it. Sometimes a good back story is the all that separates the 'Haryley Quinns" from the 'Spykes'.
-Unofficial groups are also fair game for this contest. For instance, you may create a character for Spider-Man's rogues gallery or a new member of the Bat Family even though neither are technically teams.
-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.
