Yo Joe! - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
Yo Joe is the code name for the Realm's new special mission contest. It's purpose: to create customs of a highly trained GI Joe or even a Cobra terrorist. What's fair game: Anything and everything having to do with Hasbro's G.I.JOE franchise. Make your favorite Joes, Cobras, Iron Grenadiers, Dreadnoks, Oktober Guard, etc., however you want. Any incarnation of G.I.JOE (toys, cartoons, comic books, live action movie, video games) is fair game. Adventure Team, Combat Heroes, RAH, Renegades, Resolute, Sigma Six, Spy Troops; the possibilities are endless.
-M.A.S.K., Inhumanoids, and C.O.P.S. are all series connected to GI Joe and exist in the same universe. Therefore characters from these series are acceptable entries in this contest. However characters from these connected series must be done in the traditional 3 3/4 inch scale that Joes are best known for.
-Characters from Streetfighter and Danger Girl are not allowed in this contest. They crossovers that do not share the same universe as the GI Joe.
-Vehicles and dioramas are both acceptable types of entries.
-Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
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.
