2013 SSF Winter Holiday Custom/Kitbash Challenge!!!


'Tis the Season for Custom 1/6 Badassery!!! So light the Menorha of you imagination, deck the halls with 1/6 pieces and get your Kwanzaa principles in gear for it is time for another custom/kitbash challenge!!! Or if you're not an observant customizer; just be inspired by the turning of the new year and/or winter season :duff

Just like last time, the rules for this are simple:
1. The figure(s) shown must be winter/holiday themed, and only one entry per member!

2. The figure has to be something you worked on, either full-on custom, kitbashed or massively upgraded. No posting a complete work you bought from someone else :monkey3

3.The custom work must be new, not something you made last year or week, hence the "challenge" part of getting it done in 30 days

4. The deadline for submissions is 11:59pm CST December 31st, 2013.

5. Teaser images are highly encouraged, but no full figures until 3 days before the deadline.

6. This is meant to be fun, so let's be helpful and encouraging to one another. This isn't about who makes the best figure, but members getting involved and having a good time!!! With that in mind the winner will be randomly selected from all completed entries!

7. The winner of the previous contest will be ineligible to win the current contest.

And now most importantly...

Hot Toys Superman III
(Evil Superman)
Graciously donated by Sideshow Collectibles!!!

After the cut-off date one completed figure (submitted during the 3 day window) will win the prize.

The winning entry will be randomly selected and announced on or about January 1st, 2014!!! :panic:

So, break out the parts bin, start scouring the internet for parts and get working on your (hopefully paid) days off!!!

And just to keep track of interested parties, post you your name here if you'd like to participate :duff

So we are doing this :)

I'm interested but.... Does the custom have to be a recognizable character or just something mashed together that is winter/holiday themed?

12-02-2013, 10:21 PM
Anything you want it to be :duff

The custom just has to fit somewhere in the theme, but it can be of anything you want :rock

I'll be traveling until the 31st, so I won't be posting or updating the list of participants much or at all until then. So if you have any questions send me a PM as I'll be more likely to see those and be able to respond.

Looking forward to seeing the completed figures :rock :rock :rock
