Green Lantern Custom Action Figure Con

Green Lantern Custom Action Figure Con

With the Blackest night is about to descend on us all. Why not celebrate by creating some Great Green Lantern figures?

The Doosh (http://thedoosh.net/forum/index.php?action=forum) Has decided to have an original Green Lantern custom con.

I'm sure all of us have an idea for a Green Lantern swimming around in our heads, here's you chance to put it into action and show off your creativity. Create your own character!

What does the Green Lantern of planet Gallifrey look like? or planet Tatooine? or Vulcan? or Thanagar? or Rann?

But why just limit yourself to Green Lanterns? I've seen some great Sinestro corp customs and Red Lanterns customs, there is a whole rainbow of color out there to explore.

Green. Blue. Red. Yellow. Orange. Violet. and Indigio. and of course Black. Don't limit it yourself to just one color.

The possibilities are endless. Make up your own planet and story to go with your figure. Aug 1 entry deadline.

Super Doosh Green Lantern fans JQ and Dave Cormier, plus GL JIMT from the GL boards have agreed be judges and decide who entry is best in show. Entries will be posted anonymously so as to not influence the judges, and each will be judged on its own merit.

Winner will receive one figure on their choice from the upcoming DC Direct Blackest night wave 1 or wave 2.

those interested in participating can send their to the special gmail account [email protected]

The Blackest night Doosh custom con will run from August 7 to 14, 2009.

The deadline will be, Saturday Aug 1st, 2009 at midnight. No entries will be accepted after this date.


1. Please make your entries original, I'm sure your Hal Jordan custom is great but let's see something you came up with and designed yourself.

2. If possible, we would ask that you photograph the figures so that it looks like they are on display at a convention.

3. The whole point of Blackest Night Doosh CustomCon is to show off your NEW custom creations, so please, no entries of pieces previously seen on websites, forums or in any sort of public gallery.
