View Contest Entries
Long have men been driven mad who dwell too deep in the contest vaults. There they find contests will no discernible theme that defy attempts to make sense of them. To quell the chaos we now venture into the vaults in an attempt to make sense of them.
Polaris is by far the toughest of the old contests to give a meaning to. With no obvious theme to attach to it, we will get a little creative. The objective of this contest is to create a custom of a magnetism or electricity based character.
-Jedi and Sith capable of using force lightning are allowed.
-Only raw electricity and magnetism are allowed. No characters wielding plasma, particle or laser type abilities/weapons.
-Original characters are allowed.
-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?
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.
