The Minimate Multiverse Photo Hunt 2009!

This year there are a couple of simple changes to the format.
The first is that pre-registering a hunt buddy minimate is going to be scrapped, It's caused issues & delays in the past and isn't really needed so I'm doing away with it!
The second is that the challenges below are going to be worth between 1-3 points each this time. This is to encourage creativity and reward those who go to the extra effort with their pictures.

Prizes:

Sadly this year I didn't get to go to SDCC to beg for blanks and giveaways so this yrs prizes were donated by Matt at DST and Luke's Toy Store.

1st place.
Cyberdine assault 4 pack,
Champions 4 pack,
Thunderbolts 4 pack,
Spirit movie 4 pack,
BTTF 3 4 pack
Bullseye and Moonstone pack
and a Ghostbusters Blank from SDCC.

2nd Place.
Champions 4 pack,
Spirit movie 4 pack,
BTTF 3 4 pack
Bullseye and Moonstone pack
and a Ghostbusters Blank from SDCC.

3rd place
Thunderbolts 4 pack
Spirit movie 4 pack
and a Ghostbusters Blank from SDCC.

4th til I run out ( I suspect that anyone completing all of the challenges will get one though!)
Ghostbusters Blank from SDCC.

I am also going to give a Bullseye/moonstone pack & Ghostbusters Blank to whoever creates my favourite picture from the whole contest!

So what do you have to do?:

You need to read the rules below and then create a unique Mini-Team-Mate who will be your buddy for all of your pictures. This can be as simple just a headswap, we just want you to have a unique minimate for your pictures. Then you need to look at the challenges below and take a picture for each of them.

This year is slightly different in that we are having simply having 32 regular challenges but those are going to be worth 1-3 points. Every completed challenge will get 1 point with possible extra points for effort and entertainment. Be creative, the secret to this contest is to have fun and just go with what you can do, I think most challenges should be possible fairly easily.

Obviously the winner is the person with the highest points total or in the event of a draw: the best collection of entries as decided by our judges.

All entries are to be submitted by email to huntcontest@minimatemultiverse.com
The contest starts NOW and ends on October 3rd at Midnight EST.

OK folks... I have the results... I have to say this took so long because it was a real struggle to seperate the top entries, pretty much anyone who sent all 32 were in with a chance!

The top three are:

Winner!
Bob Harris

Second:
VBPannizi

Third:
Max Carnage


Second and third place had identical scores but because VBpannizi had my favourite pic of the whole contest he just gets the edge! ( yes it was his disco picture!)

Fave pic of the contest ( excluding top 3 winners, cos they get enough already!) was REALLY hard to choose, If I had my way everyone would win this because there were so many awesome pix that made me laugh or smile, but I had to give it to someone...
Ivan for his abducted by aliens!

Everyone else who sent in entries will be getting a 2009 SDCC Ghostbusters Blank!

Thanks to all that entered and I will start to post the galleries tomorrow smile.gif
