Custom Action Figure Contest Judging at SDCC

The “Ultimate Cosplayer” holds first annual customizer contest


Captain Action Enterprises, licensors of the popular Captain Action line, are excited to announce the finale of the Captain Action 1/6th scale Custom Action Figure Contest, to be held during an “American Idol” style judging panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

“As the original superhero action figure, and the “ultimate cosplayer”, we felt that there was no one more appropriate than Captain Action to host this contest and provide an opportunity for creative fans to display their talent”, said Ed Catto of Captain Action Enterprises, LLC.

The Contest Finale is scheduled for the panel on Thursday, June 24, from 3:30 to 4:30 in Room 24ABC at the San Diego Comic-Con

Midtown Comics is sponsoring the Grand Prize: a $500 Action-Packed Prize Pack, including Captain Action merchandise, comics and collectibles. Five (5) First Prize winners will be awarded the new Codename: Action collected edition, courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment. Just released, it features the first five issues of the recent series by Chris Roberson and Jonathan Lau.

An All-Star Panel of Judges will review the custom figure entries and select the winners. Evaluations will be judged upon creativity, craftsmanship, originality and professionalism. Judges include:
• Marv Wolfman, Legendary Comics Creator
• J. C. Vaughn, Vice President, The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide
• Daniel (Julius Marx) Pickett, Action Figure Insider
• Michael Polis, Atomic Toybox Entertainment, Wildbrain and Yo Gabba Gabba
• Michael Crawford, Captain Toy, MWC Toys
• Jack Kralik, Tonner Doll

The contest finale will be hosted by actor Wally Wingert, most recently of the Tonight Show and Avengers: Earth Mightiest Heroes.

“This impressive list of creators just shows what a high-powered caliber of fan Captain Action attracts! And we’re thrilled to be working with these folks,” said Joe Ahearn of Captain Action Enterprises, LLC.


A brief screening of the Captain Action Animated Series “sizzle reel” and several new product announcements will serve as a prelude to the judging.
