DCUC Custom Showcase: Super Powers/Super Friends

The DATES:

DCUC Custom Showcase event will run the weekend of July 18, 2009.

The DEADLINE:

The deadline for your entry will be Monday, July 6th, 2009 at 11:59 Pacific time. No entries will be accepted after this date. And I know some of you will cut it close!

The RULES:

So how can you participate? Make custom action figures! Specifically:

  1. Since this is the "Super Powers/Super Friends Custom Showcase", you are limited to using the 4 Horsemen-sculpted Mattel figures Batman, DC Superheroes and DC Universe Classics. But you can use parts and pieces from other sources, just as long 75% of the figure is based on the Batman/DCSH/DCUC body.

  2. The subject matter: the figures and theme obviously lend themselves to the characters of the DC Super Friends cartoon and Super Powers toy line, so you are limited to the characters that appeared in Super Powers and Super Friends, including the produced and unproduced toys, cartoon, and comic book series. See list of characters below.

  3. You can make one custom figure, you can make ten, it's totally up to you. Send in as many entries as you can make within the time allotted.

  4. Photography is key - a great custom can be ruined by a poor quality photo. Use good lighting, and take multiple pics in order to send the best ones for the show. Check out other custom websites to get an idea of what we're looking for. Hint - try not to put your thumb over the lens.

  5. The whole point of the DCUC Custom Showcase is to share your newest DCUC customs - so please don't enter pieces previously seen on other forums or public galleries. And especially don't enter other people's work - they'll find out and you will get placed in a burlap sack and beaten with reeds.

The SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
