possable shockini contest

Postby piranacon » Thu Apr 06, 2006 8:28 am

i just asked shocker toys if they would be intrested any they said yeah so il ask you guys too
the contest would be to make / design a transforming shockini

here we go for the prises

everyone who enters and send it to them gets a new Gen2 mailed back

and

3 winners get it made into a morphing line

- so the winners could actualy get a toy produced but nothing is 100% sure yet il just wait for some feedback from everyone

Actually I think that it is a cool idea.

I have been looking into making Custom Action Masters from them recently.

But what exactly does the idea of this contest intail?

Do they have to actually Transform? Or be Transformers based?

I'd be up for it.

As soon as there is a little more details on this I'll post a link to this thread on the front page to generate more interest.

well ive been talking with him for a while about a transforming kini line, they could be going into production , they have just got a few more licenced toys that need to go in first i thnk

but for this they would need to transform into some sort of vehicle or animal etc but not a transformer (anything already made / hasbro owns) im guessing

Do they have to be 3D sculpts or can we present 2-D designs drawn up?

Hya all,
I think we should def use working prototypes that will be sent to us to judge. And the prizes will be big nice sets of Shockinis plus all work sent in will get you in return a new Gen2 kini. For this competition you can use the Gen3's or Gen2's we sell them both at our direct store!
They might be blocky but they are Tough!

i think this is the store, btu some comic shops are stocking them too
http://shocker_toys.tripod.com/tempstore.htm
theres some other retailers on the products page
http://www.shockertoys.com/products.htm

id advise the four armed/legd ones for customs as you get even more ball joints

so upto now i thinks its

make a transforming shockini
not an already licenced toy or charactor
not sure on the end date yet
must send the finished figure off to shocker toys and they will send a new one back

I'm thinking shellformers then, or perhaps beastformers.
