Become A Real Hero This Holiday Season

OXFORD, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One Connecticut-based toy company believes that $425 is a small price to become a holiday hero.

Herobuilders is a toy company that can turn you into a customized, 12-inch action figure by analyzing a picture of your face and features.

The figures can also be accessorized with custom tattoos, earrings, voice recordings, clothing, and jewelry, and company President Emil Vicale says his personalized plastic product is a perfect stocking stuffer – even if some requests are stranger than others.

Vicale says, “We did one gentleman with a prosthetic limb, and one for a daughter who wanted an action figure of her father in his wheelchair. We can do anything customized – today someone asked for a figure of himself dressed in a tuxedo holding corn-on-the-cob!”

And for Vicale, having a replica of himself has come in handy around the holidays.

He recalls giving away an action-figure version of himself to all his friends and family, but he admits, “I think my mother was the only one who kept hers!”
