About

What is Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.? 

Highly Articulated - 

We believe that action figures are meant to be played with. If it doesn't move, then it's a statue. That's why Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are designed with poseability as a priority. Why have a horse if it can't be played with and posed just as dynamically as your figures?

Character -  

Each Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figure is packed with detail and personality. Every piece of these figures has been designed and sculpted to tell the story of who this character is. We intend to make this true for each VHACKS horse, unicorn, and centaur. 

Kit - 

Although Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. horses will come fully assembled in the package, they're designed to be a customizer's dream come true. Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are made to disassemble with minimal effort for easy customizing, yet hold together during posing and display. 

System - 

The perks for customizers don't end with horses that are easy to take apart and put back together. Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. features an articulation system that's compatible from figure to figure, horse to horse. Mixing and matching parts is an easy task for any level of customizer.

Risks and challenges

Bringing an action figure from prototype to production can be a complicated process. The manufacturing of the figures will be done overseas in China, which can sometimes result in miscommunications or unforeseen delays. Boss Fight Studio now has an extensive product line and a lot of experience with bringing action figures all the way through the production process on a reasonable schedule.

Fortunately, the five of us at Boss Fight Studio have many years of experience in action figure production to draw on. We have, over the past four years, developed a great relationship with our factory. We make several trips to China to visit the factory and ensure the product is moving along at a good pace and maintains the quality you expect from Boss Fight Studio.

We are always committed to making the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures as good as they can possibly be.
