View Contest Entries
What would a hero look like as a villain or vice versa. This is your chance to re-imagine a famous hero or villain playing for the other side. Some examples might be The Notorious Spider-Man, Lobo Intergalactic Defender, Magneto and his Brotherhood of Helpful Mutants, Superiorman, Flash: the Fastest Jerk Alive, Dishonorably Discharged Captain America, Darth Yoda.
Characters who have already appeared as their evil counterpart are not allowed, or characters who have had brief forays into evil or good as a result of a trick by their enemy, such as Faker, red Lion-O, or Venom. Also any existing characters from an alternate universe that are evil, like Bizarro and such are not allowed.
So it's your chance to make the evil good and the good evil, feel free to re-invent the origins of the character and have fun with your artistic license.
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.
