You can be the envy of the rest of the cube-farm at the office. Of course, your cube-mate might have a Dwight Schrute bobblehead, or perhaps the infamous red stapler from “Office Space”. But you can be king of them all.
How? By having a fully-posable 12″ action figure of YOU, complete with kung-fu grip.
That’s right, you can get a muscle-bound plastic rendition of you for $425 (base price) from herobuilders.com. If you have a few dollars to spare by auctioning off your D&D classic handbook and dice set, you can upgrade to the voice model, making the figure complete with your own slogan or war cry!
Also, a number of accessories are available; a laptop, machine gun, power-drill, hamburger (wha…?). There are a number of personal customizations you can make to the figure to make it as accurate as possible, right down to the clothing and even tattoos. With that said, you won’t find a ‘slightly husky’ or ‘big-boned’ action figure for those of us who have a few extra pounds to shed. Could you really even call it an action figure if that were the case?
The likenesses pictured on the site seem pretty decent (Herobuilders claim 90% facial accuracy), but you won’t be able to post them on your eHarmony account any time soon, so some of us should probably head to the gym before we start distributing these things.
