Vile Volitions - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
A yearning to pocket that fancy watch on the counter, the craving you get for senseless destruction after watching the latest hack-n-slash flick, the secret urge to push an old lady down a flight of stairs, these are the freedoms villains never deny themselves and take any chance they get. Celebrate their dirty deeds by creating scores of these wretched villainous scum! Let the bad guys and girls run free this month by making any villain you want!
-Them's the rules, simple and clean like a good bank-robbery. Make a villain, any villain.
-You can also make heroes if they were villains at one time, but you have to make them in the suit they wore while they were being evil. You can make Rogue in her black/green suit when she worked with Mystique or Superman in his Justice Lord uniform. As always, just make sure you point-out in your description exactly why you're submitting your particular custom.
-Yes, there are prizes this month for First and Second place winners, Third if I find enough stuff to give away! To discourage cheating, I'm not revealing the prizes, they will be Mystery Boxes! First place winner will choose a box, then Second place chooses a box, then Third gets the last one. You don't know what's in the box, it could be anything or nothing at all! It could be a MOC figure or a sock or a piece of candy or a spider...man, a Spider-MAN, yeah, that's what I meant...good luck...votes will be monitored as always, anyone voting suspiciously will be disqualified, don't give yourself a 5 and everyone else a big fat ZERO, you will be destroyed without impunity. Have fun!
...and I'm not kidding about the sock. ;)

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.
