Last week, a PR contact hit me up about something she thought would be right in my wheelhouse… and she was right. Customizable action figures are not a new thing, nor are personalized varieties – but the folks behind YOU KICK ASS just might have the best thing going, and on ABC’s SHARK TANK tonight, Mark Cuban agreed, partnering to take YOU KICK ASS to the next level. These customizable, personalizable figures run about $60, and can be modded to suit tastes and appearances, including skin tone, costume, superpower, etc. – and 3D printing technology helps craft a head that looks like the recipient.
While these might be the best for now, I still think the head sculpts could be improved (I have yet to see a 3D-printed head that I’ve truly liked), but with Cuban’s backing, they just might have the backing they need to make these things perfect.
