FACE CONTEST: Design a Metal Fight Beyblade ... again!

Yes, due to popular demand, there's a new Beyblade Design Face Contest! You've always wanted a Face? Well, it's now or... later!

We want you to design your own Metal Fight Beyblade based around an Egyptian theme! Isn't that awesome? The winners will get their choice of:
  • Face Booster RED [Image: faceboosterred.png]
  • Face Booster BLUE [Image: faceboosterblue.png]
  • Face Booster GREEN [Image: faceboostergreen.png]
  • Face Booster ORANGE [Image: faceboosterorange.png]

How mysterious! Hm, I wonder what could be inside of them?

And yes, that's right, winners. Not one, not two, but four people will win Face Boosters! How cool!

What's even better is that this Face Contest is special : the grand winner will receive a Mercury Anubis 85XF, and the second runner-up will earn himself a Ray Unicorno D125CS!

So, here are some of the criteria your entry will be graded on:
  • Artistry: Obviously, someone who hand draws their Beyblade for several hours is going to be taken more seriously than someone who quickly puts something together in MS Paint. That being said, we understand that not everyone has the same artistic ability. Effort is what's important!
  • Originality: Try to think outside of the box and use ideas that haven't been used in Beyblade yet! At the same time, your concepts have to be relatively realistic. Also, nobody wants to see ten Seth-inspired Beyblades! Do your best to use an Egyptian theme that is uncommon. If you need help, you can refer to sites like this one.
  • Balance: Remember guys: there's no best Beyblade! If you make a Beyblade that's so broken it would theoretically ruin the metagame and be banned even by TAKARA-TOMY, try to think of something else! Don't draw a Beyblade that's only junk, but try to balance everything with good and bad traits!

And now for the rules:
  • Limit one entry per person! Your first entry will be the only one that's considered, so work hard on it!
  • The WBO Committee isn't eligible, as usual...
  • You have until September 30th at 23:59 PM to do it. Any entries must be posted before then!
  • Post your entries in this thread! (You can also talk about the contest, ideas, or whatever in this thread as well, but don't ask for direct feedback on your drafts!)
  • Your entry must contain a picture or a photograph of your imaginary Beyblade, and you also have to try to include a description of its parts.


That's all; make us all proud and good luck!

Oh sweet! I'm so on this.
It'd be nice to win, but I'm just gonna do for fun!
Darned Vulcan Horuseus makes it hard to be original!
Good thing I made a custom MFB thread for this! Smile
This will certainly give me something productive to do at school.

;D
This...is...EPIC! I am so entering this! if i win, i will get a beyblade that will never be availible in usa! WOOHOO!!!
Does it have to be HMS or Pre-HMS?

Well, Mercury Anubis could be released eventually, but not for a while, if at all.

edit: Jerf, I assume you mean "HWS" or "Pre-HWS"? Definitely not HMS, haha. And I suppose we didn't specify, so either is fine!
Finally got my idea in mind. When I'm done drawing it, I will edit this post with my entry.
How will it get sent to the winner?
Does anyone know the name of the Egyptian snakes? like these http://i48.tinypic.com/2je4sna.jpg? Or does thi belong in the random thoughts thread

Asps, I think.

BLADER DJ will materialize above you with an orchestra of trumpets and light strings playing in the background, he will hold out a golden box wrapped in velvet with a platinum clasp and say: "YOU WIN BIG CONTEST, HERE IS PRIZE! ONLY BY POWER OF BLADER SPIRIT CAN BOX OPEN." You will take the box and everything is gone. You wake up in your bed, feeling slightly down, yet lighthearted. As you get out of bed, you notice you are holding a golden box, a velvet cloth draped across the floor, and a shiny platinum clasp no longer closed.

[EDIT] Blader DJ's caps lock is broken. I had forgotten.

It's a MFB that has been released...
My design
Undead Osiris S145FD

Face:
A drawing of Osiris' face and hat...

Metal Wheel: Undead
Colour: Gold
4 triangular protrusions, allowing upper, smash or force smash depending on it's height and opponent's height.
Based on the flail Osiris holds in his left hand.

Clear Wheel: Osiris
Colour: Green
Aesthetics...
Based on the crook Osiris holds in his right hand.

Track: S145
Colour: White
Slim 145
Osiris is a mummified, slim and tall Pharaoh... Should explain itself.
Fat bit at the top is where it connects to the wheels
Slim all the way down

Bottom: FD
Colour: White
Free-Defense
A free spinning D tip, conveying the undead theme. I guess...
The god of the underworld can't die!!!!
