Small Fries - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
For this contest we focus on the small, the short and the vertically impaired. The objective is to create a custom that is smaller than the standard figures of that scale. You may choose your entries from any area of fiction or nonfiction; they may be animals, teens, or just unusual so long as they do not measure up in height. Think of people like Damian Wayne, Puck, Antman, Wasp, Gollum, Molly Hayes, Wilykit & Wilykat, Franklin Richards, and Yoda.
-For the 6 inch scale entries need to be 5 inches or shorter to qualify. For the 12 inch scale entries can be no taller than 10 inches. For the 3 3/4 inch scale must be 3 inches or shorter to qualify. For all other scales entries must be no taller than 80% the height of a normal person for that scale.
-Original creations are allowed for this contest, and dioramas are allowed only if they focus on a custom that fits the entry requirements.
-Vehicles are not allowed for this contest, even if the pilot meets the entry requirements.
-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.
