Scum & Villainy Custom Comp

(http://i1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii529/dozymuppet/AFB/mrec_zps91f5a202.jpg) (http://www.afbforum.com/index.php/topic,5323.0.html)

Welcome One and All to AFB forum's 6th Custom Competition!

The bad guys, rotten eggs & B.M.F's

So as the title suggests we want to see action figure customs of any character from any medium at all, as long as it's a villain!!!

There will be no limits and no scale suggested, as long as the character is pure evil.

Any amount of Frankensteining or sculpting is encouraged!

Due Date

Three photos are to be supplied: front, side and rear. A W.I.P. (work in progress) photograph would be cool as well.

Completed Photos with any write-ups or reference pics are to be pm'd to Scotty here through AFB No larger than 800x600 please. The due date is May 10th, 2014. All pictures will be posted the following few days in a locked thread for you all to admire. A separate Thread will be started for comments.

We encourage all Members to have a go! This is a challenge for fun and there will be a vote by all members on the best figure.

The voting will be broken down to a 3,2,1 system with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place announced.

So, how is everybody coming along?

I've pretty much got my selection sorted and putting all the parts together at the moment.

I know which character I'm doing and have 99% of the parts. I just need some hazardous chemicals and the hair of a mythological creature.

I'm not kidding :)

Same here.

Though I'd settle for about 4 hours of time where I could get things done unmolested.

I've de-risked a significant part of mine, so I'm pretty happy where things are at.

Crap. My Scotty made from pasta wilted in the heat.

I promise I'm going to do one of these some day...(maybe we should do dio items, accessories, or bases.)

Let me say that I'm doing this completely for the fun of it and not as competition of any kind ... although "fun" doesn't seem as appropriate as aggravating learning experience. At least this will be my best smellling custom  ;D

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y240/davegalan/MC_zpsbcc421e9.png)

Also, I haven't exactly kept my promise to myself to do one custom per month. I did work on my March and April projects a bit but they'll be presented together with another in June which is fine since they all go together :)

 :D Well it is about fun, which is one reason we decided never to have prizes, etc. I was going to do an AFB Custom trophy, but time has gotten away from me.

The way things are looking at work, this may well be my last contest for awhile and with the others I managed to finish recently, quite possibly the last customs I'll have time for for the forseeable future.

 :(

It's always just about fun and filling in holes in the collection for me.   Way to many folks that are more talented than me to ever take these too seriously.  I really just enjoy seeing what y'all come up with.

Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on May 09, 2014, 09:08:58 pm
That's what I like, seeing a bunch of customs all at once and enjoying the variety! Having said that, due to technical difficulties I'm tentatively dropping out. Still working on it during what time I have today and tomorrow but don't see myself getting it all worked out in time. Worth the delay to me -- I change materials and I think I'll be happier in the end!

There's a few expected entries missing at present....

It will take me a couple of days to get the thread up regardless.

We will also have a brand new voting system this year!  [thumbs up]

Sorry Guys,

I was one of the late entrants, we had a family tragedy during the week. I have sent the pics to Scotty, sorry for the delay.
