My husband loved his "action figure" Awesome work!
Sculpture Enthusiast Turns Funny Gift Idea into Full Time Fun
I started making these custom action figures one year when I was trying hard to think of an original idea for Christmas presents for four of our friends. I wanted to make something that was personalized so they would know I had them specifically in mind when they opened their gifts. As I started making each of our "Little Buddies" and the clay started forming into the recognizable faces of our friends, I just had to laugh out loud! I could only imagine what they might think when they opened a box with a little action figure of themselves inside. When the gifts were opened my husband and I were not disappointed. Lots of laughing and a fun memorable evening followed.
I had so much fun making these "Little Buddies" and they were so well received that I didn't want to stop with just our friends. So I decided to offer my talent to anyone else who might get some laughter or fun out of sharing a Little Buddy with someone.
I now create fun pop art sculptures as well. You can see some here in my shop, and some in my husband Larry's shop at etsy.com/shop/FanboyMuseumArt.
I love to sculpt! If you have a fun idea for an action figure, let me know what you have in mind, and I'll be happy to give you a quote.
When I make your custom action figure, I sculpt your head then attach it to an articulated action figure body. I next dress your action figure in an outfit of your choice. If I don't already have the outfit you need I sew the clothing to your description.
Each Little Buddy is a unique piece of art specially made to look like your photos.
I am a one-person operation who occasionally enlists the help of my talented machinist/artist husband when making unique accessories.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If ordering a custom made action figure, after payment is received I will email you a short questionnaire with instructions for sending me the photos I will need.
If purchasing a pre-made statue, I will ship it within 3-5 business days.
If ordering a custom action figure, depending on how many orders are ahead of yours, I will usually need about 5 weeks (in addition to shipping time) to complete your order, but sometimes its possible to receive it sooner if needed.
If you need your custom made action figure order by a particular date I will do my best to accommodate you, but please contact me before ordering to make sure I will be able to meet your deadline.
If you need your custom made action figure order rushed (guaranteeing a date sooner than 5 weeks) I sometimes can do this. There will be a "Rush Order" fee of $150 per Little Buddy so I can work after hours to complete your order.
Please contact me and I'll be happy to give you a date of when you can expect to receive your order.
REMEMBER: Little Buddies make great gifts, so holiday times are especially busy for me. If you're planning on giving a Little Buddy as a gift, please order early to ensure I will be able to deliver by your requested date.
Refunds and Exchanges
I pack all my items with utmost care, but if something arrives damaged, please let me know and I will replace the item.
Additional policies and FAQs
When ordering a custom made action figure I will email you a photo of my progress for your input before completing the sculpt. Customers are usually really happy with the results, but if you have any suggestions or additions for me to make, I will make the changes at this point for no additional charge. I will then show you another photo. If any other changes are asked for there will be a small fee for the additional work.
Its important to remember these are fun keepsake pieces of art that will have a close, but not exact, resemblance to the photos. These figures are meant to be played with gently by adults, and are not meant as toys for children.
I have many happy customers and would be delighted to provide you with more testimonials and examples of my work, which can be found on my Little Buddies Action Figures website.
For international buyers, please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
