Get your own custom-made action figure! Buy your lifelike 1:14 to 1:9 scale head (or someone else’s) and fix it onto a 5" to 8" action figure body.

From just one frontal photo (and optionally a side photo), a photo-realistic 3D preview of your final personalized action figure head is made for FREE. Then, your personalized headsculpt is created out of a resin composite in full 24-bit color. Our custom-made figurine heads are designed to fit onto most 5" to 8" (13cm to 20cm) action figure bodies. You can buy these from your local toy store or you use one from your collection as long as the head is removable.

You also can buy your head on a suitable 6" action figure at Complete Custom-made 6-inch Action Figure.

Head Design

Head Sizes:

Each figurine manufacturer has slightly different head measurements for each figure scale (and even between different lines), so be sure to pick our head size that will best match your figurine's (even if it's a different scale). If you are not sure, measure the dimensions of the original head on your current figure and pick to closest in the list below. Typically, these work well:

Figurine Size Measurements (Depth x Height x Width)
5"    ~2.1x1.9x1.4cm (0.83''x0.74''x0.56'') - varies with face
6"    ~2.4x2.5x2cm (0.95''x0.99''x0.78'') - varies with face
7"    ~2.7x2.9x2.2cm (1.06''x1.15''x0.88'') - varies with face
8"    ~2.9x3.1x2.4cm (1.13''x1.23''x0.94'') - varies with face

Typically, the bigger the head size, the better detail we can achieve. Compared to our 1:6 scale action figure head for 12-inch figurines, some of the finer details visible in the 3D Face will be somewhat lost in the smaller heads.

Head Mounting:

First the original plastic head must be removed from the 5-8 inch action figure. In some cases, the head can be removed directly by pulling firmly on the head. However, we recommend first putting your figurine's head under very hot tap water for a minute and then use a towel to pull off the head with a firm pull. The original plastic head can be snapped back on to return the figurine to its original state.

To fix the head to the figurine's neck-post, first knead the provided Putty/Blue-Tak (provided) into a ball of softer putty. Insert it inside the head so that most of the head is filled. Then press it down on the neck-post. The head should now fit firmly it place. It can still be rotated to make the figurine look sideways.

For a more permanent fixation, Expoxy Putty (provided) or Hot Glue with a Glue-gun can be used.

Specifications

Design: Full head with neckless design. Hollow inside. The hair effect is achieved with a textured color hairsculpt.
Material: Matte, coloured and hard plaster-like composite in full 24-bit color. The colors are not painted on but are actually part of the make-up of a thick color outer layer of the model, therefore it should gracefully resist superficial scratches and not rub off. Due the to the manufacturing process, the surface is slightly rough to the touch and some layering can be visible. Please avoid banging, wetting or direct sunlight on the head. Each head has a unique shape, especially in the facial area.
Neckpost: The neckless design means that it will accomodate many different action figure necks. Ball-joint neckposts work best.
Suitability: Our products are not suitable for children.
Weight: head weighs 12 grams (0.4 ounces)
