Welcome!


Welcome to Figures-R-Us! We're a group dedicated to the art of figurine photography. And though we are still small, we hope that our members will continue to help us grow. We know there are tons of hobbyists and collectors out there, as well as lot of talented artists. So show us what you got!



  • You don't have to be a collector to join. As long as you have an interest in our group, you're welcome here! [:
  • Please submit your work in the appropriate folder(s).If you think we need to add/make more folders, please send a note to either our Founder or Co-Founders, or leave a comment down below.
  • If a picture is submitted to the wrong folder, chances are we'll accept your picture and move it to the appropriate folder afterwards.
  • Your submissions will be reviewed before getting approved or denied. If we deny your work we will give you a valid reason. It is our goal to be as fair with our members as much as possible.
  • There's no limit on how much pictures you want to submit, but please try to avoid submitting pictures that look identical. Although I say that there's no limit, the above rule still applies.
  • There will be no tolerance for harassing another member. Our group is a friendly community, and we want to keep it that way. Please don't mistake criticism for harassment. If, by chance, you have something against another member, contact us and we'll do our best to resolve the issue!
  • If you think you can handle being a Contributor, send a note to our Founder. If we feel that you can't handle being a Contributor I will let you know before we demote you. DON'T TAKE IT PERSONALLY!



  • Featured: We now allow submissions into the Featured folder! When submitting into the Featured folder, please submit only your BEST work! Quality of the picture will be looked at and if we feel that the picture doesn't meet quality stantards, it WILL be rejected! You can submit 2 pictures a day!

EDIT:

Thanks to CVPhased for bringing this to my attention. It seems that our new Mecha folder may cause confusion because of the various companies that make mecha figures, and things like Gundam model kits may confuse members on whether to submit it into the Mecha or Model Kit folder. This is how this'll work.

Model Kits:
- If it's a model kit that you have to snap together, glue, etc... then yes, submit photos into the Model Kit folder.

Mecha:
- Mecha figures like Big O from the Soul of Chogokin line, or other brand name figures that make mecha that doesn't have their own appropriate folder will have to be submitted into this folder.

Customized:
- If you've taken a figure and customized it, then it will have to be submitted into this folder!

I know it's not a good detailed explanation but it does get right to the point.


Evening everyone!

Just wanted to announce with the suggestion from PlasticSparkPhotos, we now have a Mecha folder for everything mecha related! Everything mecha related (Gundam, Voltron, etc) will now have to be submitted into that folder. Mecha Musume's? They go into that folder as well! ^^ I'm also looking for new Contributors! If you feel like you're up to the task, please feel free to send me a note!

Requirements:
- If a figure/photo has been submitted into the wrong folder, please move it to the folder it belongs to.
- As with the rule mentioned above, I try to be lenient on those who submit pictures into the wrong folder. Think of this rule like 3 strikes. If the member continues submitting photos into the wrong folder, decline and kindly tell the member to submit the photo into the appropriate folder(s).
- IF you have alot of free time, you're more than welcomed to move every mecha related picture into it's new folder.

Featured Folder:
- Please, please, PLEASE do NOT submit blurry photos! Please try to put effort if you're planning on submitting photos into this folder!

If you feel like the group needs more folders, please feel free to leave a comment!

Anyway, have a good weekend everyone~

I believe you didn't join the group yet. I'm sure that's why you can't submit any art. ^^;
