Custom Action Figure
Answers in the Category "Custom Action Figure"
The custom-made headsculpts can be painted or coated in most cases. We would recommend painting/coating the non-visible inside of the head first. If it sets satisfactorily, then this is a good indication that you can proceed with the rest of the head.
We are unable to receive action figures to evaluate which head size works best on it, or to mount the head on the figures. Instead, please read our custom head product page for useful information about which heads fit on which type of figures. If this does not help, then please email us the figure name along with a photo of the figure or a link to an online store selling the figure, and we will advise you which head size/design is most likely to work with your figure.
Please refer to our Head Mounting tutorials for instructions and HowTo videos.
We do offer limited customization of outfits only for our 12" action figures. It is available from our Custom and Custom Plus figure in the 12" custom action figure section.
Before placing your order, please contact email us with your requirements at sales@ThatsMyFace.com with your outfit requirements and we will let you know whether to pick the Custom or Custom Plus price point and if we can match your targeted outfit.
We do not offer custom outfits for 4" and 6" figures as the clothing is molded onto the figures. We recommend you find a suitable action figure elsewhere (ToyRus, Amazon, eBay) with a suitable style/outfit and just purchase the custom heads from us. The heads can then be swapped over.
The coloring of the head is determined by the source photo of the person. Each figurine's skin color is fixed and varies depending on each figurine model. In our 12" custom figure range, we do however offer three body colorings: Afro American, Brown and Caucasian. Exactly matching the skin color of the head to that of a figurine's skin color is difficult and could affect the likeness of the head, so it is not a service we offer. Slight differences in skin tones between the head and the figurine body is common in the collectors market as well as some retail models. This is principally due to cost and reusability issues, for the same reason that articulation joints are visible on most figurines.
We do not make action figures of licensed characters, although we do offer them for resale. These figures are included in their original packaging so as to respect trademark requirements. ThatsMyFace.com is not associated in any way with Barbie, Mattel, Hasbro or any other doll or action figure manufacturer whose items are shown throughout the website.
The custom-action figure heads are made of a hard resin composite in full 24-bit color with a matte varnish. The colors are not painted on but are actually part of the make-up of a thick color outer layer of the model. Due the to the manufacturing process, the surface is slightly rough to the touch (sugar-coated) and some layering can be visible. Please avoid banging, wetting or direct sunlight.
The action figure bodies on the other hand will most likely be made of ductile plastic such as PVC. It will depend on the type of figure you order. The clothing on 4" and 6" figures is part of the figure in most cases and is also made of plastic, so it cannot be removed. For 12" figures, the clothing is made of textile and is generally removable.
