Orion 2 - Custom Action Figure Contest!





  View Contest Entries   

Long have men been driven mad who dwell too deep in the contest vaults. There they find contests will no discernable 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.
In honor of Orion, the hunter of greek myth, this contest is about hunters. Monster hunters, bounty hunters, trackers, and snipers as well. I encourage everyone to think outside the box on this one as there are many characters that fit the bill for this contest. Such as Wolverine, Kraven, Death’s Head, Boba Fett, Lobo, The Winchesters, Ulysses Bloodstone, Green Arrow, Predators, and Blade.

A few questions to ask yourself if you are unsure of a character. Have they been seen stalking their prey? Are they a capable tracker? What is it that they hunt?

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.

I know it's kind of a thin line but would wolverine be acceptable? Also are original characters allowed? Just double checking. Thx.
Green Skin - Sunday, August 17, 2014
Yes, and yes
kent32 - Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Green Skin - Sunday, August 17, 2014

Green Skin - Wednesday, September 3, 2014
It's a bit of a stretch, but sure.
Fig-Lord - Sunday, August 10, 2014
Would any symbiotes count?
Green Skin - Monday, August 11, 2014
As far as I can tell nope.
Fig-Lord - Sunday, August 24, 2014
Not even carnage?
Danyx Eleven - Sunday, August 10, 2014
Do they have to currently be hunters in canon, or do they just have to have been a hunter are some point? The character I have in mind is an ex-hunter (a bounty hunter of sorts), and is known to be so, but is never shown hunting in the series since they're retired.
Green Skin - Sunday, August 10, 2014
hmmmm.....I think they would count.
bluebery - Sunday, August 10, 2014
Does assassins count, such as Typhoid Mary and Elektra?
Green Skin - Sunday, August 10, 2014
Yes
Fig-Lord - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Can I make a combo(amalgam?) of a character that qualifies and one that doesn't.
(4 example, batman and lobo.)
Green Skin - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Since you would basically be making a new character, yes.
JayBlazeXGen - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Deathstroke? Dean Ambrose?
The Wiley-Barja Project - Saturday, August 9, 2014
I think Dean should qualify he has been stalking and hunting Rollins for weeks
Green Skin - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Yes and yes
JayBlazeXGen - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Yes! Woo lol bout to start him now, thanks for the replys
Gonard - Friday, August 8, 2014
Can a comic rocket raccoon and groot count? In the movie they were bounty hunters but I'm not sure if the story would roll over in the contest haha
Green Skin - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Nope, but the movie versions would.
