Bad Guys Feature Rules

 

CAPTAIN ACTION 2nd Annual CUSTOM ACTION FIGURE CONTEST

 

“BRING ON THE BAD GUYS

For the 2nd Annual Custom Contest, the focus will be on the villains

And winner will receive a special Action Pack: complete with a the Sideshow/Electric Tiki Captain Action Limited Edition Statue, an Lady Action Novel and a Captain Action ID case, courtesy of Titan Merchandise.

HOW IT WORKS:

Just create your own custom villain costume for Captain Action.  Costumes can be any villainous character from comics, TV and beyond.  So we don’t limit your creativity, we’re opening this up to all pop culture characters.

 

You can use existing costume elements or create your own. Photos should show a Captain Action or Dr. Evil figure dressed as the character, and can be simple photographs of the toys or elaborately staged settings or action scenes with multiple characters.

Photographs may be composed on miniature sets, full-size sets, indoors or outdoors.  Photographic themes can be, but need not be limited to, realistic, fantasy-based, historic or modern.  Contestants are urged to only submit photographs in focus, and to be clear with the ideas and themes portrayed.

Contestants may use Photoshop for touch-ups, but extensive use is discouraged. Word balloons, thought balloons, logos and text are not permitted.

Photos must be at least 4 by 6 inches at 72 dpi (288×432 pixels). Submitted photographs can be landscape or portrait (horizontal or vertical).

Six Finalists chosen by CAE, LLC will be reviewed and judged by a panel of industry professionals at the Captain Action Panel at Comic-Con International (also known as San Diego Comic-Con). The winner will be announced at the panel and then notified subsequently.

Fans can follow the entries on social media via the hashtag #BringOnTheBadGuys
