Over the years, Hasbro has excelled at bringing collectors the Star Wars figures they've wanted to see. We got Porkins, Biker Scouts, and Boba Fett - to name just a few. However, there is one glaring omission - the flannelled father of all figures: George Lucas. Rebelscum, ToyFare Magazine, and the FFURG.com are challenging you to create your own custom George Lucas - we want to see how you'd Make the Maker. Besides publishing the three best entries here at Rebelscum.com and in the April issue of ToyFare, winners will also be awarded the following prizes:
Each winner will also receive a one-year subscription to ToyFare magazine. 12 issues of toy news, photos, and price guides delivered right to your doorstep!
1. Make your best George Lucas action figure in either 3-3/4" scale or 12" scale similar to regular Star Wars action figures or Action Collection toys. Toys should be loose, not carded.
2. Submit your best and clearest photos either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. One entry per person.
4. The contest is open to both professionals and amateurs.
5. All entrants agree to allow publication of their name, location and photos of their entries by Rebelscum.com, FFURG.com, and ToyFare magazine.
6. To ensure quality photos for the magazine, winners will be required to send their entries to ToyFare offices to be photographed for the magazine. All entries will be returned promptly after their photo shoot.
7. Winners will be determined by a panel consisting of staff from Rebelscum.com and ToyFare magazine. The panel's decision is final.
8. All entries must be received by January 3, 2001. Winners will be notified on January 4th and will need to immediately send off their entries for photography.
We'll be posting all the entries we receive on these very pages - so even if creating a custom figure and winning fame and fortune (well, fame and Bith anyway) isn't your thing, you'll get to see what everyone else comes up with. So what are you waiting for? After all George Lucas has made for you, isn't it time you made him?
Additionally, customizers are invited to learn about and join the, where you will find a talented group of Star Wars toy customizers.
