The Legendary Starfy Avatar Contest

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Your Legendary Starfy avatar could win you a copy of the game!

We here at Nintendo Life have decided to give away one brand spanking new The Legendary Starfy DS game to one lucky reader who can impress us with their own unique Legendary Starfy avatar.

Now the avatar doesn't have to be Starfy himself, but it does have to be related to the game in some way, shape or form.
Untitled

The rules are simple:

1. Create your own Legendary Starfy avatar
2. Upload the avatar to your account
3. Post a message somewhere in the comments section of this news post

Untitled
We'll then browse through all of the Starfy avatars in this news post between now and 8pm CST tomorrow, June 10th, when we'll announce the winner of the contest and send them their very own Legendary Starfy DS game. So get those Starfy avatars up and let's see what you've got. :D

This contest is only open to North American residents

Since I don't have money, I guess entering is worth a shot. Gotta change my avatar back though. Good luck to myself and everyone else as well!

Oh crap, just a day to get this done? I'm out. My "artistic" "ability" is incapable of putting anything together in that time. Good luck to everyone though!

Corbs said:

And you don't have to actually draw it yourself. You can always trim up an existing piece of artwork. I did. EZ PZ. :)

Starfy Attack!
The Uzi is kinda cut off, but he has the Rambo style bandanna and gritting teeth.

TwilightV said:

I tried making one... the sizing made it hard... XP

EDIT: If you can't tell, it's Kyorosuke (Moe) wearing a Starfy party hat. I was going to give him blue sunglasses, but making these things in my current setting is hard enough.

Objection

#18

Objection said:

I have NEVER changed my avatar in these last 18 or so months. And I changed it for this contest! I think it's pretty nice. Even if I don't win, it'll be cool to see what everyone else cooks up. (But I really would like to win.)
EDIT: Made a few quick PS changes and reuploaded, so you may need to refresh to see mine.

Objection

#20

Objection said:

Of course you'd say that...because I saved over the other file, lol. :P Hope you guys like this one too.

CorbsAdmin

#21

Corbs said:

Well at least I can take your name off the list of candidates now. That narrows that one down. :D I'm kidding.

CorbsAdmin

#23

Corbs said:

I'm really kidding. While I did like the first one better, this one is just fine. :)

Objection

#26

Objection said:

@Cheesy- AH! Very nice. Yours is my new favorite! It also seems to have the most work put into it. Very nice.
EDIT: Corbie...are you like...REALLY bored? ;)

Objection

#28

Objection said:

Is it a video for the site? Using youtube? I know the feeling, as I've been using that site for a while and it does take a long time to upload and process, even though my files aren't very big because my camera is 2 years old and not anywhere near HD. :P

Cheesy

#29

Cheesy said:

@Objection_Blaster- Thank you very much! I spent quite some time on it.

Anyways, this opportunity is perfect for me because I'm a huge Kirby fan and Starfy looks like Kirby's twin. For those Kirby-Stafy relationship haters, don't kill me. :p

I tried to make Starfy look like Kirby but I couldnt get the colors right =[

Hope you guys like it =]

@SuperSonic1990: Hey, that's from Siliconera! XD

____________________

Anyway, as for mine, I'll use a quote:
"Kirby doesn't take kindly to obscure properties stealing his thunder!" :D

I had other ideas but I went this this especially because of the humor factor when you consider just how many people are comparing Starfy's latest DS game to Kirby. And Kirby no likey!

Starly shares the name with Starly from Pokemon DP. Thought a fusion would be a fun idea.

I can't stop laughing @ Gamer1030's. It's ridiculous and makes sense at the same time. :D

Everyone has a nice icon. Now can you all slobber over mine? I call it: Starfy's Soul.

Objection

Objection said:

I made another one. Anyone like this one better or should I stick with the OBJECTION one from earlier?

Objection

#53

Objection said:

Thanks for your comments guys. I'll probably change it back in about 10min to the OBJECTION one unless I hear some votes there. ;)

Well much I wouldn't mind a free game, Merchant Kirby will never sell me stuff at a low price anymore if I abandon him (or that I am not creative enough). Good luck to everyone.

I based my Starfy off of the Super Mario 64 star.

Hope you like it!

Mine has dragon starfy breathing fire on pikachu and link, if you can't see it. It's a bit hard to see when it's so small.

Ziondood said:

@RaiderZX & pie4prez
I like yours too =] Very creative =p
I was thinking about making a captain falcon one but it would look bad as an avatar
too small
Keep up the good work everyone =D

Wow everyone has some really great avatars here! I'm not entering because I already have the game but I wish you all the best of luck!:)
Hey Corbie, I noticed that you changed your avatar too; you're not planning on awarding the game to yourself now are you?;)

CorbsAdmin

Corbs said:

LOL...no I already have my Legendary Starfy game. I was just trying to lead by example. Greg will be back tomorrow. :)

@Corbie - quick Starfy quiz - in which game does my Wii Remote-toting face appear? Bet you don't know!

CorbsAdmin

#89

Corbs said:

@ James - Now that I don't know. Every time I see your avatar, I think it's Adam Sandler about to fast-forward through sex again. :D

Only open to North American residents. Makes a change from the usual. I can ease my armies about their fears of a Starfy invasion now. Boy, they were pumped for some action

It looks like there are a lot of new faces (well Starfy faces) on here for the give away. Welcome all!

-Starfy

#95

-Starfy said:

There certainly are plenty of great avatars here. My personal favorite out of the bunch Alegeobla's.

I also like my avatar seeing as it represents most people's initial thoughts on Starfy.

Speaking of Starfy, when can we expect a review of The Legendary Starfy?

Bensei said:

Oh damn, Sometimes I had being European. I'll get it anyway, the first Stafy game I understand! (it will always be Stafy for me, but I spell it Stuffy, not like Staify or so)

Corbs said:

Starfy review should be up soon. I had to finish Munchables before I started playing it.

SpaceBooger

SpaceBooger said:

I should have saved my avatar as a larger one too... Oh well I still like my hand drawn Uzi wielding Rambo Starfy!

KnucklesSonic8

KnucklesSonic8 said:

I'm itching to get Starfy as well. I filled out the Intend to Buy survey on Club Nintendo and everything.

@KnucklesSonic8
I work at Gamestop and we only got 1 copy on the day it came out!
I hope it doesn't become really hard to find =[
I wanted to buy it but i'm trying to save my money =[

Ziondood said:

@KnucklesSonic8 Yea i know i was suprised =[

KnucklesSonic8: don't worry, there's still some EBs kickin' around in the US. for a while, GameStop was using all three names (EB, GameStop, and Babbage's) on their bags and stuff with logos... i don't think they use Babbage's at all anymore, but EB's still around. :3

I have entered the contest. In my mind, I have already won.

EDIT: I have a much better idea, but I won't be able to make it until I get home. :( This one is uploaded just in case I don't get the chance later. Corbie, email me when you need my shipping info.

Chicken Brutus- good icon. I thought your icon before was honestly used in the contest, it looked like a real life starfy.

theblackdragonAdmin

#122

theblackdragon said:

we never knew about him until now; obviously he has been kept in secret until Chicken Brutus chose to out him to the world :3

Also, note that neither Tingle nor Starfy have officially come forward to acknowledge him(?), though the family resemblance is unmistakable. :P

@Dark Link
My avatar is a Onii demon from Little King's Story. I didn't change it because I already bought The Legendary Starfy so I don't need to enter this contest. It is fun watching it though and I want to see who wins!:)

anthonyb said:

@theblackdragon: Thanks! Awesome Starfy is AWESOME!

Here's another my friend and I did- Incubus-style Starfy. It's hard to see but he has a goatee. A fun one hehe.

Holy crap hopefully I'm not too late. Just got back from camping. Awesome contest.

anthonyb said:

Weird. I just logged back in and my avatar had changed. o_O Oh well. Changed it back.

Blackdragon's luma avatar is my new fave! I'm playing through Galaxy now, and love those guys. :)

@KnucklesSonic8: Thanks man! I was thinking of incorporating Kirby at first, but it looks like great minds think alike.

KnucklesSonic8

#141

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@anthonyb: Oh really? That's funny. I was thinking of including sprite art like the other poster did. I had like 3 or 4 ideas actually but I went with what you see now especially because people kept comparing Starfy to Kirby so I was all: Poor Kirby, it's like Starfy is encroaching on his territory or something. :P
@theblackdragon: Your welcome! To echo WRH's words, it sure is pretty cool. Easy to do but still a great idea! You're definitely in my Top 3 favourites. I wouldn't be surprised if you won. :)
@pixelman: lol, he looks like he's about to pummel someone into the ground. Nice way to commemorate the release of GS Tennis.

KnucklesSonic8

#147

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@pixelman: Uhh... DUH, I know that! That's what I meant. Performing a smash to pummel someone on the opposite side with the tennis ball like in SST or MPT or somethin'.

I am putting together some I really like right now and the other guys are chiming in with their picks. But we still have a few hours, so we'll give everyone time to get theirs in. :)

CorbsAdmin

#153

Corbs said:

@Toddr - That's perfect. And great avatar too. As for Pixelman - We've had 43 unique entries...yours is currently ranked 42. :P (I'm kidding, or course. It's 41.)

Toddr

#154

Toddr said:

@pie4prez Yeah. It was pretty easy to do, cause the background of starfy was all white. The only hard part was cutting out parts of mario that were still visible.

@Corbie, are you just gonna anounce the winner only, or the top, I dont know, the top 7 :P

EDIT: Also what do you think of mine?

theblackdragonAdmin

#165

theblackdragon said:

@Adam: lol, so you branded your icon '1st place' just to be sure everyone knew? :P

also, lol @Chicken Brutus, though that new one reminds me of playing Pokemon on the Super Game Boy and messing around with the color settings. :3

Wow, I'm surprised to consider my avatar is good quality since my photoshop died and I only had MSPaint! :D

After 8pm CST, we'll decide on the winner and we'll post a news item listing our favorite 10 Starfy avatars. I voted for 7, but was out-voted.

metakirbyknight said:

I have mine. There's no romance in Starfy, but I think there should be. I already own this, but I want to get it for my brother, because he is a huge Starfy game and needs his own copy.

@ The Gamestop Disscusion
My Bestbuy had 10 copies in the morning and 4 at night. I bet it's doing well enough. Besides, the game will probably do better in July when all the little kids have their money saved up.

Sweet pics guys....I would change mine but I already have my copy of the game and my lil bro is on here also so Im letting yall have at it. I had a really great idea but decided not to go with it lol.

So, How many are keeping their Starfy avatar's after this is done? I know I am.

I'm keeping mine, it's a lot better than my old one.

Im keeping mine I guess, time to move on from 1000 japanese kids wearing mario heads, its hard :P

I think I'll keep mine just cause I made it, and art isn't my forté, so making my own avatar makes me feel special. :)

Yikes! Hope I'm not too late!

So this is my entry, I was playing Conker just before, so it gave me the idea. It's supposed to be a Starfy/Conker fusion.

What'd that be called, Starfy's Bad...Fin Day?

Well anyways, enjoy.

This is crazy. I just recieved an email from nintendo advertising the legendary starfy. o_0

theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon said:

@pixelman: lol, it's my husband's doing to be honest. my laptop is running Vista Home, but that's because we need something with an installation of Windows for a couple little things (the Nintendo Wi-fi adapter won't work with linux [yet], for example).
@Toddr: yeah, Nintendo's usually a little late on the draw re: e-mails about new games and/or Wii Shop updates. :3

All the best to you all. I got a feeling I know who won though. theblackdragon, Cheesy, anthonyb: I'm lookin' at you guys. :)

As much as I really want this, I'm trying to win this for my best friend who's moving quite a big distance away.

TanookiMike said:

LOL, thanks Slapshot. X)

I was toying around with the concept of opposites for the avatar in my mind, and Conker just seemed perfect!

Heck yeah, Conker F.....n rocks with ever explicts know to man and then some....Literally.
