As the Original Superhero Action Figure, Captain Action is all about customization, change and the power of imagination. We’re thrilled to announce the first-ever Captain Action Custom Figure Contest. Is there a hero that you wish had a costume set or 1/6th scale figure? Or do you just like looking at the creativity that customizing fans bring? Well this is the contest for you.
How it Works:
Customizers are encouraged to send in photos of their best 1/6 scale customized superhero figures using Captain Action figures and/or parts. Fans can create costume sets/figures for existing heroes or new characters they have created. We’ll be showcasing the entries online up to the San Diego Comic Con. And then, at the Captain Action panel, our all-star panel of judges, and the audience, will review the top six entries and choose one winner. One grand prize winner gets a $500 Captain Action Shopping Spree, courtesy of Midtown Comics, first prizes including Captain Action comics. Five First Prize winners will win copies of Dynamite’s Codename:Action Trade Paperback, collecting the recent hit miniseries.
Entries must be sent to JoeAhearn@CaptainAction.com and include “Captain Action Custom Figure Contest” in the subject line.
And if any entrants are attending the show, they can also bring their creations in for review on stage. We’ll simultaneously have their entries on the big screen.
