Humanoid 8.0 is a planned series of advanced 1/9 scale action figures for the increasingly popular customizing market.
Hi everyone, my name is Craig Owen and I'm the owner of ZICA Toys. I apologize for not having a video to go with this project but I tried to make one about a million times and just couldn't do it to my liking.
Anyway, enough about my issues and on to what's important. The Humanoid 8.0 Action Figure project is my next attempt to take the 1/9 scale (8 inch) format and help it evolve into what's being done in the 1/6 scale format (12 inch), specifically in terms of detailing and customization options. My first attempt at this was back in 2011 when my company released a line of Buck Rogers action figures with characters from the 70's era TV series. These were much more detailed than what's currently being done with 1/9 scale action figures, which are typically designed in the retro MEGO style. Here are the promo images that were used for that line.
Humanoid 8.0 Yvonne Action Figure
The Humanoid 8.0 Yvonne figure shares a lot of the same design features that are typically found on the higher end 1/6 scale action figures. For example, it has swappable hands and chest pieces that offer extra customization options, plus it also has advanced articulation.
What you're seeing in the image below is an actual production sample which means the figure is ready for full production. All of the tooling is finished and paid for so it's only a matter of me having the funds available to place my first order with the factory.
Thanks for taking the time to check this out and hopefully with your help I can make this project a reality.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Being as all of the design work and tooling for this project are finished and paid for there really isn't many risks or challenges at this point. Once the project is funded it's simply a matter of me placing an order with the factory and getting the product shipped to the US. I've already been through this process with the Buck Rogers action figures and know what needs to be done to successfully get things from point A to point B.
