2.) This must be a new creation from the start of this post, previous customs/contest entries are not allowed.

I mean it doesnt say you can't... what does the almighty judges say? :)

On another note, if it is a concept... does it have to be brand new as in the sense its been created and never entered into a contest before? As that particular ruling is quite vague, as I have a few concepts and there is one in mind I would like to use with tweaking.

cheers,

Totalus

any where within the sci-fi genre or just sci-fi movies? by anywhere I mean comics, cartoons, books, t.v. shows, etc.

also does it need to be an actual painted/scuplted piece or is a altered "digital custom" in the clear?

The intention of this contest is for an actual custom minimate piece (Quick Custom, Painted, Scuplted, Decal), not a concept design. Sorry, a concept design is totally different. (Plus doesn't Fujis own the copyright? :P )

As for the Sci-Fi genre, your custom can be from any derrived source. Movies, Comics, Video Games, Cartoons, Books, TV Shows, Etc. It's not limited as to where it comes from as long as the it's from the Sci-Fi category.

Seriosly thay Cylon is sweet... Im glad you guys dont mind the idea of some non Minimate prizes.

A note to the peopel who dont like/have the resources to make actual customs, there will be another contest later in the year that doesnt involve making actual minimates so dont feel left out! (although you should all enter this one anyways!)

DonnyB and I should probably discuss this before we both enter the same custom. Maybe I can throw him off the trail by mentioning how much I love Barbarella...

As stated above, one entry per person. That's one figure.

Dude, I dont know what you're talking about. I'm making a Bret Ratner custom. It's totally Sci-Fi that hollywood never banned him from directing. Or breathing.

Or maybe I'll make a Joel Schumacher custom... :P

No, I'm totally just kidding. I don't hate people for not having intelligence or talent. Really.

And I haven't figured out what character I'm doing yet. My first thought was to do the entire main cast of 4400 (I love that show... well, the few episodes I've actually managed to see of it so far). But I can only do one custom. And I wouldnt know who to pick.

Then I thought I would do someone from the cast of Firefly/Serenity. But again... who?

Ahhhhhhhhh! Such a hard choice! So many minis that I want to make!

But it doesnt matter. Cuz I have no time to make any, let alone a fleet of new customs...

Or a four-page gatefold recreation of Jim Lee's X-Men 1, or the continuing adventures in Minopolis...

Face it, you're doing Barbarella. No wait... I don't mean 'doing'...
