Website Maintenance -- Posted by Captain Coder on February 19, 2011
Whoaa... what's going on? Well, probably not many of you actually asked that, but maybe a few of our keen regulars did. There's a bit of website maintenance going on. Please excuse our mess while we dust the cobwebs, tighten some screws and add some fresh coats of paint. And while we're add it, we might even build some new features :) If you are reading this message, then that means the first phase is complete. So what's different now? A few big features, along with a whole lot of little . . .
Custom Tutorials Are Back -- Posted by Captain Coder on February 21, 2011
Custom Tutorials are back! This feature didn't have as many cobwebs as some of the others, so things should look mostly the same as before. However, there are two big improvements. First, there is now a submission form for the tutorials so users can officially submit tutorials and they will go through the standard Regulator approval process. Hooray! Second, the new user comments system has been enabled so users can post comments and ask questions about the tutorials.

As always, please repo. . .
Comic Strips Are Back! -- Posted by Captain Coder on February 26, 2011
Comic Strips are back! I think this feature had long been forgotten, as it was just tucked away in a corner somewhere. Also, I can't even remember the last time a new Comic Strip was submitted, but that's probably because it didn't have a submission form like it does now :) This area has definitely been revamped to look a bit nicer and more inviting. It's also one of the funniest features of the website, so make sure you read through some of the comics if you haven't before. The new user co. . .
Reviews Are Back -- Posted by Captain Coder on March 4, 2011
Reviews are back! This feature had to have been the ugliest feature on the site in the past. Wow, those pages made my eyes sad. I can't believe you guys never complained about how ugly they were before. Things have been cleaned up immensely, with features to browse reviews by author or toy series. The new user commenting system has also been enabled here so you can comment on the reviews and agree or disagree with the writers.

As always, please report all issues of any kind to us so we can. . .
Announcing the Battle Damage Custom Contest -- Posted by Captain Coder on March 4, 2011
Announcing the Battle Damage Custom Contest.

It's battle damage time at Figure Realm this month, and it isn't going to be pretty! A simple black eye won't cut it--we want to see characters that are REALLY messed up: clothes/uniforms ripped to shreds, dents, bullet holes, scorch marks, lacerations, shattered glass, broken bones, missing body parts, exposed circuitry, knocked out teeth, you name it. Your custom figure(s) should look like it. . .

Announcing the Brat Pack Custom Contest.

They may be hotheaded and immature at times, but whatever they lack in experience is balanced by youthful exuberance and determination. We're talking about kids, and even though some of them might barely be out of diapers, for June's contest here at Figure Realm, they're out to prove that they can throw down just as well as the big guys and gals in your toy collection can.

User Commenting System Upgrade -- Posted by Captain Coder on June 9, 2011
The user commenting system on Figure Realm has been upgraded. The biggest change that will be noticed by users is the user comments are now integrated into the Custom Showcase, and no longer part of the forums. No more flipping back in forth from the Custom Showcase to the forums to post comments :) This also makes the Custom Showcase consistent with other areas of the website that already use the user commenting system, which should provide a more user-friendly experience. In addition, each. . .

Custom Collaboration Project -- Posted by pock63 on July 2, 2011
Hi everyone I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing a custom collaboration project. My idea is to make an absorbing man figure with lots of changeable arms and legs of different materials. The idea behind this is that every customizer can use there unique talents to make a different changeable body part such as a mettle arm, brick leg, wooden leg, glass arm, etc(but be creative feel free to go wild with this). You are not limited to one entry you can make as many different parts as you. . .
