Announcing the Before They Were Heroes Custom Contest.

Nobody starts out life as a hero - an individual generally has to work their way up from mundane origins to become the stuff of legends. The object of this challenge is to create a custom figure of any existing character depicting what they looked like before they took up the fight against crime or gained superpowers.

- How you approach this challenge will be dependent on the history of whatever character you choose to focus on, but here are some examples to get you thinking: Family man Frank Castle (Punisher). Normal police officer Alex Murphy (Robocop). Pet shop turtles (TMNT). Government operative Al Simmons (Spawn). Teenager Peter Parker before he was bitten by a radioactive spider (Spider-man). Test pilot Hal Jordan (Green Lantern). Various young Marvel Comics mutants before their powers expressed themselves (Colossus, etc.)

- While the title of this contest says heroes, you can also choose to explore the dark side and do "Before They Were Villains" instead. So, stuff like: College student Victor Von Doom (Dr. Doom). Pre-transformation street punks (Bebop and Rocksteady). Smeagol prior to his corruption by the one ring (Gollum).

- There aren't any limitations on size/scale and you may use whatever base bodies, parts, materials, tools, and techniques you like to bring your custom visions to life.
