Turtle Power! - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
Grab a slice of pizza, your best ninja gear and come with me; we're heading to the sewers of Figure Realm in honor of everyone's favorite heroes on a half shell. For this contest simply make a custom from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe. All incarnations are fair game for this contest, so any version of the cartoon, comic books, video games, movies or toy lines are acceptable source material.
-Any and all characters from the TMNT universe are fair game. Unrelated proprieties that had a crossover with TMNT are not allowed however (so no Power Rangers, Savage Dragon or Flaming Carrot). A list of TMNT characters can be found here.
- 'Dress up' characters are also acceptable since it was a staple of the original toy line. Basically take any TMNT character and dress them up as something else. Pirate Leonardo, Stormtrooper Donatello, Steampunk Shredder, Surfer Michelangelo, etc.
-Vehicles, playsets and dioramas are also allowed providing they relate to the TMNT universe.
-As always there are no size restrictions for this contest. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done.
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.
