Welcome to "WHAT THE BUCK??!?"AFB Forums Custom Challenge.

What is this you ask? This is the inaugural 'Action Figure Blues' custom challenge. We're kicking it off by using DC Universe Classics Figures.

Here at AFB we've seen some great posts of the action figure customs whipped up by our members and it's now time to get the creative juices flowing and show us what you can do within the tough limitations we've imposed upon you.

Gimme the details.....

Okay, it's not really that strict....

RULES

1. Base figures are limited to the following DCUC characters: OCEAN WAVE AQUAMAN, ELECTRIC SUPERMAN and MR MIRACLE/DR IMPOSSIBLE.
2. In addition to any accessories they come with, figures are limited to two major fodder additions such as a head swap and a gun (no major frankensteining of limbs, etc).Non DCUC Fodder parts are of course fine to use.
3. Sculpting with modeling putty/green stuff/super sculpey, etc, is allowed.
4. Entries MUST be a new Custom,anything previously created is not eligible for this challenge.

NOTES
- Any character from anywhere you like is fine.No limits.
- If it's an obscure character then feel free to include a reference pic for comparison.
- If it's a character you made up then include a short bio if you like

DUE DATE
Three Photos are required for your entries,Front/Side and Rear view.

Completed Photos with any write-ups or reference pics are to be Emailed to FB[faithfulbutler@actionfigureblues.com]No larger than 800x600 please.
The due date is June 14th,all pictures will be posted on June 15th 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 but no prizes are offered just the prestige of having the most popular figure as voted by your fellow Members.

OTHER STUFF
The awesome MikeS has a number of spare figures available if you need a base figure. Check him out at www.mikescomicsnstuff.com

If you have a Blog or are a Member of any other Message Boards please feel free to promote and link this Challenge there.The more that join in the merrier!

If you have any questions about the challenge feel free to post them on this Thread.
Of course if you need help with Fodder parts go here:

Or if you need some technical advice go here:
http://actionfigureblues.smfforfree.com/index.php/topic,240.0.html

Good luck and get to it!

Great idea, I'd love to join in, however I don't have a spare base figure that's been listed. Can anyone help in that regard? Of course I don't expect charity, I would be willing to purchase. Cool Cool Cool

We partly chose these bases because they're not big sellers so should be able to find somewhere, of course those of us in Oz retail isn't an option. Mike is possibly your best bet - he is helping a few of us out with that. Check with him.

If not let us know and we'll try to find something for you.

The more the merrier!

I intend to make the absolute worst figure of the competition. I challenge anyone who thinks that can do a worst job than me!

In other words... I'm in too!  Grin
