Past Toys Reborn - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
This contest theme is past toys reborn. This contest involves finding obscure toy lines from the past that you may or may not have had and revamping them for modern day. Nothing easy like a simple repaint or a few minor mods will be accepted. The more obscure the better, even obscure characters from mainstream lines like Transformers are okay as long as it isn't one of the characters you see constantly or who hasn't had a ton of figures already made (example: Rodimus Prime is okay but Hotrod isn't). The same rules as always apply. Remember to include a back story, clear pictures, and a photo of the original character/figure so we can see what he/she/it looked like back in the day. Good luck and have fun.
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.
