Emil Vicale is President of a Connecticut-based toy company called Herobuilders and says if you send in a picture of the front and side of your face, his team will make a twelve-inch- tall version of you for $425.
It may sound like a lot of money, but Vicale says he has thousands upon thousands of orders for mini- mes, adding, Our poor sculptor. I think shes going to jump out the window soon.
For a little extra cash, he says theyll do custom tattoos, earrings, voice recordings, and an exact replica of your clothes if you really want to get crazy.
Vicale says a male stripper wanted his action figure to be anatomically correct but when the guy offered to send a picture of his crotch, he replied, Dude! Small, medium or large. Thats all you need to tell me.
In his words, We go the extra mile for sure.
