Alien vs. Predator Custom Contest
Predator and prey are arguably the two oldest roles in nature, the only question is, which will your toys be, the hunter or the hunted? The object of this challenge is to create a customized figure of someone or something from the Aliens or Predator franchises. The three best entries will have their skulls embossed in gold, silver, or bronze and lovingly placed on the Predator's trophy wall (figuratively speaking of course!)
- The various Alien and Predator movies, comic books, video games, toy lines, novels, etc. are all fair game as far as subject matter goes (with the exception of crossovers with unrelated franchises, see below.) While the contest's title is Alien vs. Predator, you can make humans, androids, etc. from the source material too. For example, customs of Ripley, Dutch, Bishop, and Hicks would all be fine. You may also create an original Alien or Predator design if you wish.
- No crossovers with other companies' intellectual properties! In other words, stuff like Batman vs. Predator, Superman vs. Aliens, amalgams of characters from unrelated franchises, etc. aren't allowed.
- There aren't any limitations on size or scale and you should feel free to use whatever base bodies, parts, materials, tools, and techniques you like to bring your custom visions to life.
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.
