Create Your Ideas Contest

Recommended Posts

Lurch77   

Do you have an idea for a new minimate line? Think you could make an awesome new exclusive figure for an existing line? Prove it!

Your task is to create a new minimate figure pack to kick off your new line or as an exclusive for an existing line. Single or Multi-Pack is up to you and the more detail the better. You can include concept art, box art (and box) along with your figure or figures. If you're not good with customizing then a drawn figure will be accepted.

**drawn example**

Requirements:

  • new figure(s) (created or drawn) 
  • package for the figure(s) (at the very least you can use a baggie like the comic con promos)

===============================================================
Prizes:

  • Top 3 will get a SDCC 2017 Purple Donatello promo along with an exclusive SDCC 2017 DST Fidget Spinner.
  • Also we will do two random drawings from all of the entries (minus the top three) and those will each get an exclusive SDCC 2017 DST Fidget Spinner.

===============================================================
Rules:

  1. This must be a new creation from the start of this post. This doesn't mean that everything in it must be new. For example you can use parts and accessories from other figures.
  2. Please submit your entry in this thread and note on it that it's your official entry. 
  3. Only one entry per person.
  4. Any board members can enter as long as they are not me (Lurch).
  5. You can make changes to your entry up to the deadline of this contest.
  6. Remember safety first and that we are a family friendly site.
  7. MinimateMultiverse takes no responsibility or liability for any broken laws, damage or general mayhem caused in the process of creating your entry.
  8. Any entries that do not post either due to timing or technical issues are not the responsibility of MinimateMultiverse.
  9. MinimateMultiverse has the right to change the contest or rules at any time. This includes but is not limited to the completion date and prizes.


===============================================================
Dates:

  • Entries will be accepted between now and Monday September 4th at 11:59 PM CST.
  • Voting begins immediately after end of entry date until September 10th at 11:59 PM CST.
  • Winners will be posted shortly afterwards.

===============================================================
Voting:
The PM Ballot system will be used for the voting.

Each submitted ballot must list in order, the top three most creative entries.

1.) Most Creative Entry
2.) Second Best Entry
3.) Third Best Entry

  • Anyone can vote, even the participants.
  • If you are a participant, you cannot vote for your own entry.
  • The 10 point minus system will be used to calculate the results.
  • Points awarded will be as follows: 1st will get 10pts, 2nd will get 9pts, 3rd will get 8pts.
  • Tie-breakers will be decided by rock/paper/scissors if needed.
  • During the voting period, please send all ballots by PM to me.

===============================================================

If you have any questions, please post them in this thread.

A big thanks goes out to Zach & DST for the prizes and a special thanks to Allen for being MMMV's representative at this year's SDCC!

Good luck and have fun!

My ideas are flowing! I had been thinking about a line I would love to see after seeing the 'If I ran things' post. I think I actually had about 50 characters/variations planned out in my head. I have a few ideas parsed down from those for this.

If people wanted could they do a starting wave? 4 two-packs and Tru?

Just one pack, but if you are feeling ambitious the back of the box can show the rest of the wave.

I'm working on my submission.

And for clarification, this is the full package mock-up, right? Front, back, insert, Minimates, etc.? Or just a single side, like the X-men box set example?

I would like to submit an entry but I have some questions.

1) Can my submission be images composed of mixed match photos of minimates with some alterations?

2) Can the the packaging also be an image of a package design but not an actual package?

I have not had the time to customize lately but I like the concept of this contest and have some images I have worked on for customizing but don't have the parts or time?

single or full is up to you; for those short on time or rather not do packaging you could always go with simple baggie like the giveaway promos

Few more days left; I'm hoping everyone is just waiting till the last moment to post :impatient:

With no entries so far you could literally put a quick custom in a ziplock bag and be in the current top 3.

I just need to finish (assemble one and paint three) the mates and add their pictures to the box art. Other than that, my box art is ready.

Here is what I came up with for an entry after seeing this contest on the site.  I would have actually like to make these and an actual package: however, I work for a university and we just started our Fall Semester.  So Time is hard to find right now.

Thank you to Minimates Database for which I used to help composite the ideas for the characters.

I would love to see these made and maybe one day if I can find all the right parts I will make them.

I've wanted mates of these forever and with the currently running Amazon live action series, i thought it was the perfect time for......

I've always thought it was a tragedy that there's never been any Spaceballs merchandise.  I've heard the "reason" but I still want a little Dark Helmet of my own. Now that Disney owns Star Wars their might be some wiggle room in licensing considerations. 

 

But until then I bring you my entry, Spaceballs, the Box Set!  (click for larger images)

Here's the marketing insert you can see in the pack.

And here's a group shot of the figures and accessories.
