Customized Action Figures: The New Voodoo Doll

PHOENIX (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Now, those who wish they could take a hammer to the one that scorned them can live out their violent fantasies.

Mini-Me Model Works is a company that creates customized action figures built by a team of sculptors using pictures uploaded by clients.

Creator Graeme Warring says the figurines not only provide laughs, but also a release for those still pissed off at someone who broke their heart.

The company offers Smash Me Mini-Mes – figurines that come with a hammer.

He explains, “People that had a girlfriend or boyfriend that cheated can get a Mini-Me made of them, smash it, then bury or keep the pieces in a box. It’s like a modern-day voodoo doll!”

Warring has had orders for Smash Me Mini-Mes made in the likeness of Wall Street crook Bernie Madoff and former Merrill-Lynch CEO John Thain by those who were screwed over by them to help ease the pain of the tough economic times.
