Waffle House - Custom Action Figure Contest!





  View Contest Entries   

Some people just can’t make up their mind. They’re a bad guy, they’re a good guy, they’re a bad guy, then they’re a good guy again. The objective of this contest is to create a custom of one of these indecisive individuals. Characters may be taken from comics, video games, movies, TV, books, etc. To qualify for this contest a character must have switched sides from a bad guy to a good guy, or vice versa.
Some examples: Juggernaut, Magneto, Rogue, Plutonian, Anakin Skywalker, Quicksilver, Two-Face, etc.

-Characters that are ‘undercover’ or have not genuinely switched sides do not count.

-Some characters ride that thin line between hero and villain, such as Punisher and Deadpool. Characters like this are allowed for this contest.

-Dioramas are 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?
  • Please use the form here to submit your custom figure.
  • At least a paragraph description is required with your entry. This paragraph, at a minimum, should answer the following questions:
    • How was this custom customized?
    • How does the custom fit into the contest theme?
  • You may submit up to three different entries for the contest.
  • Please only submit figures that were created for this contest. Do not submit old figures from the Showcase or previous contest entries.
  • Your entry should not be posted on this website, any other website, or anywhere on the internet until the contest is completely over.
  • The pictures for your entry will remain hidden until the contest ends and the voting begins.
  • Your identity will remain hidden until after the voting completes.
  • Do not include names, logos, signatures or anything on the pictures that will give you away as the creator of the custom. We want to keep the customizer's identity a secret until the contest is over.
  • Don't wait until the last day to submit your entries. If your internet is down, or something happens beyond your control, you will miss the contest! Also keep in mind how many customs you can submit in one day. You may not be able to submit all your entries in one day.
  • The contest is purely for fun... well... and bragging rights!
How does the contest voting work?
Anyone can vote for their favorite customs in the contest, you don't even have to submit anything to the contest! You do have to be logged-in to your Figure Realm account though so we can keep track of the votes. Only appointed Figure Realm staff can see the votes, so anonymity is guaranteed. Voting begins once the entry deadline is met and lasts for a week.

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.

Would a forced switch count? Not quite brainwashing, but say a character turning into a monster, a robot getting infected by a virus, or really any time a character undergoes a dramatic change against their will where it can be assumed the change will force a switch in sides. (ie MMX Mavericks (a la virus; some are willful, I know those would count), PMMM Witches, Metroid Phazon Corruption, etc)
NovaPrime - Thursday, July 17, 2014
When is voting going to start
Patraw - Friday, July 18, 2014
August 16th, as stated in the rules. You're going to have to wait a little under a month for the voting to begin.
gypsyking - Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Do alternate timelines count? As in: someone good/bad in Marvel 616 going bad/good in AOA or AOX, or any other alterverses?
Green Skin - Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Not really. For all intents and purposes look at alternate timeline versions as different characters.
Racoon21 - Monday, July 14, 2014
does ghost rider count
Green Skin - Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Yes
SlimRichardson - Friday, July 11, 2014
I'm a newbie to this and don't have a vast knowledge of back rounds so thought I'd ask this probably obvious question, is Hawkeye acceptable as in avengers gets brainwashed????
Green Skin - Friday, July 11, 2014
Hawkeye is a go. Not only was he brainwashed in Avengers, but in his comic debut he was an Iron Man villian.
Fig-Lord - Friday, July 11, 2014
Since I can do azrael, can I do az-bat?
Green Skin - Friday, July 11, 2014
Sure thing
SuperBot - Monday, July 7, 2014
Do original or made-up characters count? Can I submit a character that I created myself to fit within a known universe (Marvel, DC, GI Joe, Etc.)?
Green Skin - Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Sure, but you must include a backstory to demonstrate their 'waffleness'.
Dea-Su-Oh - Sunday, July 6, 2014
custom wrestler figures? has to be the biggest flip flopper of all time the big show.
Green Skin - Tuesday, July 8, 2014
There are so many flip floppers in wrestling, I can only think of a few that have never flip flopped.
Frenchtouch - Monday, June 30, 2014
Teamates in Suicide Squad would count ? or Lady Shiva and Poison Ivy in Birds of Prey ?
Green Skin - Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Yes
WeaponXCVII - Monday, June 30, 2014
Since it was hacked and remote controlled by Whiplash, does the War Machine suit from Iron Man 2 count?
Green Skin - Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Nope.
Buff - Saturday, June 28, 2014
Brainwashed count?
Green Skin - Saturday, June 28, 2014
Indeed it does!
JayBlazeXGen - Saturday, June 28, 2014
Would Walter White count?
Green Skin - Saturday, June 28, 2014
Yes
Customs4lyf - Friday, June 27, 2014
Or original characters aloud or combinations of two different people? (ex. If I combined deadpool with the punisher
Green Skin - Friday, June 27, 2014
Combos are allowed if both core characters fit the rules.
mr.fenrir - Friday, June 27, 2014
what of video game characters with a choice to be good or evil? Bit of a stretch, I know
Green Skin - Friday, June 27, 2014
Sorry no.
mr.fenrir - Friday, June 27, 2014
No matter, the guy I was thinking of walks the line of good/evil regardless so still works
King ToT customs - Thursday, June 26, 2014
Would Kessler from InFAMOUS count?
Green Skin - Thursday, June 26, 2014
From what I've read, it seems like he would.
Customs4lyf - Monday, June 23, 2014
Or Kessler from infamous?
Green Skin - Thursday, June 26, 2014
Kessler however, seems to fit the contest.
Customs4lyf - Monday, June 23, 2014
What about Cole McGrath from infamous?
Green Skin - Thursday, June 26, 2014
From what I can tell reading the synopsis, he doesn't really fit.
JayBlazeXGen - Monday, June 23, 2014
Would Seth Rollins count since hes sided with Dean and Roman and then separated and then back with Dean and Roman and then turned on them with Triple H and Orton, plus the heel turn face turn now heel.
Green Skin - Monday, June 23, 2014
My wrestling knowledge is severly outdated, but if he's gone heel-face-heel then he counts.
JayBlazeXGen - Monday, June 23, 2014
Kk thank you
Heroes Assembled Customs - Monday, June 23, 2014
Would Doom count? He has gone back & forth a few times, although not as much as Magneto and others.
Jarred706 - Monday, June 23, 2014
I could guarantee you that Dr. Doom would count. He's as big waffle as Magneto.
Green Skin - Monday, June 23, 2014
Doom counts.
JayBlazeXGen - Monday, June 23, 2014
Would The Governor count?
Green Skin - Monday, June 23, 2014
I don't think he counts.
JayBlazeXGen - Monday, June 23, 2014
Kk thank you
massprime - Monday, June 23, 2014
Would Jean Grey or Emma Frost count?
Green Skin - Monday, June 23, 2014
Yes and yes.
Fig-Lord - Monday, June 23, 2014
Is Azrael fair game?
Green Skin - Monday, June 23, 2014
I think yes.
thecablespot - Monday, June 23, 2014
