An action figure of yourself?

Postby Chancellor » Thu Apr 10, 2008 1:59 pm

If you could have one made... and not like Kyle Robinson custom er anything, I mean an actual sculpt of your self! So what would it be like? As in a super detailed McFarlane style, or an ultra articulated ToyBiz version, or even Hasbro or Mattel! Which would fit your personality or wants?

I'd have to go with a more statue-like figure from McFarlane Toys. If I could have a figure of myself I'd want it to look like me, and I don't think I'd trust anyone else with it.

Mine would come with a bag of corn chips, a jar of smokin' hot salsa, a Coke zero, and a pair of sunglasses.

Mine would be absolutely non- articulated, with an emphasis on "display only", in fact the term "action", for "Action figure" should be removed, and I would come with a special "swigging" feature and come with pack -ins of

Jack daniels
Tenant pils
Red wine
Stela Artois

Oh and for the variant: Coffee.

I agree articulation " Sux [smilie=grrrrrr.gif]" ....[smilie=its-a-tard.gif]

But, Mine would be me in an artistic (i.e Beatles Sgt. Pepper type) uniform.
With long hair and a Beard. Packaged with Psychedelic accessories.....
made by McFarlane Toys without a doubt........ :idea:

Mine would have to be made by the company (can't remember which) that did the AC/DC, Jimmy Page and Kurt Cobain figures (using fake British accent) > Cuz I'm a bloody Rock Star.

McFarlane did those too, didn't they? I know Jimmy was because he's in the Spawn store.

Oh yeah, and we want videos of you playing!

It was NECA that did the Jimmy Page. McFarlane only did the 3D cover thing of Zep I. But I guess if McFarlane wanted to make an action figure of me I wouldn't say no. They made one of Angus and of Slash so I guess they could do Buzzy. 8)

Hot Toys would be cool, but expensive. I'd say McFarlane Toys, who is capable of making articulated figures(just look at the Halo line). My dream would be base body by Toybiz with the head sculpt and any other sculpt work done by McFarlane. Paint by either.

I'd like a realistic figure with lots of articulation, but some less realistic accessories. :)

I'd go with Gentle Giant. They do actual facial scans and have great articulation on lines like Hellboy. They also do some of the scans for other companies. Ron Perlman looks way better, or at least like Ron Perlman, than the likeness produced by Mezco. He also had better artic, more accessories, and swappable hands. :D
