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?
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.
