How to Make an Action Figure With Your Own Face

I collected all sorts of action figures when I was a kid. My first was the Star Wars AT AT. There were also a lot of GI-Joe figurines lying about our house at any given time when I was little. As an adult, I collect Darth Vader figurines and LEGO mini-figs. I’d probably embarrass myself if I showed you how many of those things I have.

Several months ago, someone reached out to me and asked if I wanted to create an action figure of myself. I had to take photos of my face and upload them to the web. They created this head out of resin which can be stuck onto virtually any action figure I want.

You can order my action figure head for yourself, or get one made with YOUR face on it. I’m not making anything from these, so let’s not go off on that particular tangent. This is just something that’s a lot of fun that I wanted to pass along to the community.

These things are a lot of fun to play with. You can place the heads on any figure, as I said. However, if you want to order a body from them, they do a really good job. They are so life-like. They got my pecs and my six pack correct.

Have fun with my head, or with your own!
