Same Base - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
For this contest we all start on level ground, everyone in this contest will start with the same base figure. We have chosen a DCUC Male Buck for the base to be used in this contest. To enter this contest we will all make a custom starting with the DCUC male figure. The sections from the elbow down to the hand and the knee down to the foot may be swapped out and changed, but everything else must be included in the finished custom.
-Any subject matter is fair game for this contest. Comics, movies, original characters, anything. The important part of this contest is creative and skillful use of the base body.
-The required pieces of the base can be arranged anyway you want. As long as all the parts are used in the custom, it doesn't matter how they are used. You can do anything you want to the base body.
-Any scale is open for this contest. Though you may be limit to only using the DCUC male body, you are not limited to the 1/12 scale. Giant size 1/18 characters, or small size 1/6 characters are also fair game. 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.
