Male On Demand Just for Kicks



Male on Demand (MOD), African American 1 (screen-captured image) from Herobuilders.com

Herobuilders.com allows you to create custom 12-inch action figures.  Choose the ethnicity, hairstyle and color; clothing, and accessories.  There are only two African American head sculpts.  Choice 2 appears to have cornrows.  Both are available nude with or without sunglasses for $13.95 and $15.95, respectively.


MOD, AA1 dressed (screen-captured image)

Using their online tool, just for kicks (I did not complete the order), I dressed African American 1 (without sunglasses) in a basic white T-shirt, denim jeans, and sneakers.  The final price came to $37.80 without shipping.

Not a bad concept, but the head sculpts are rather crude and the clothing choices very limited.

Here you can make a male action figure on demand for yourself and order, or not.

  1. I sure would like to see what the finished product looks like. It's a little hard to imagine from what they provide on the scteen.

  2. I put a black cap on the figure I toyed around with, but removed it because he looked like a criminal.


    I purchased a Condoleezza Rice figure from Herobuilders.com several years ago for a friend who collects celebrity dolls. It actually looked like Condi and the quality was good. The only thing I disliked were the Herman Monster, orthopedic-looking, molded-on shoes they gave her. So not cute.

  3. I picked out that same black stocking cap. What's wrong with us? I take it you don't have a picture of Condi? Or have you already blogged about it?

  4. LOL... scary, I guess.

    I do have a picture of Condi. I used it in my second book. I haven't included her on my blog probably because she's long gone and technically not part of my collection. But I'll do a quick blog about her later this afternoon.

  5. Correction: Condi's picture is in my third (recently released) book. I will still share the image shortly.
