Captain Action Custom Figure Contest

Captain Action Custom Figure Contest!  
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 our fans bring?  Well this is the contest for you.

Custom Contest 

How it Works:

Customizers are encouraged to send in photos of their best 1/6 scale customized super hero figures using Captain Action figures and/or parts. Fans can create costume sets/figures for existing heroes or customize figures based on new characters they have created. We’ll be showcasing  all the entries online..right up until San Diego Comic-Con. And then, at the Captain Action panel, our judges and the audience will review the top six entries and choose one winner. One (1) grand prize winner will earn a $500 Captain Action Shopping Spree, courtesy of Midtown Comics. Five (5) First Prize winners will win a copy of  Codename:Action Trade Paperback, collecting the recent hit miniseries, courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment.
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 in their creation for review on stage. We’ll simultaneously have show their entries on the big screen for the entire audience to see.
