About


 Please wait 1 min for video to load. Thank you!

Haute Hero is on a mission to help people experience fashion and style through the excitement of premium collectible toys. Our goal is to create a new kind of fashion doll, a FASHION ACTION FIGURE, that speaks to streetwear enthusiasts and toy collectors in a way traditional dolls do not. 

Our clients have a deep passion for premium toys. We understand how much quality and craftsmanship means to owning a true collectible piece. To set us apart from other collectible toy makers we specialize in handmade shoes, clothing, and accessories perfectly tailored to our figures. All pieces are crafted in the USA and includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Haute Hero founder Chris Pin

The toys we played with as children have evolved into contemporary art objects known as Urban Vinyl or Art Toys. These plastic figures represent the nostalgia of the past and the aesthetic feeling of the present. Haute Hero's limited edition figures draw upon the heritage of the original 12 inch tall action figure but with a stylish twist. Our work uniquely combines the spirit of a fashion doll with the edgy attitude of an action figure.  


The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is to help launch my full collection at an NYC gallery this fall. Without Kickstarter, it would be extremely difficult to execute this vision within a reasonable time frame and in the highest possible quality. However, with your support, I will be able to finish the project and take Haute Hero to the next level! (Please note: we do not sell to any third party distributors at this time) 

The funds from the campaign will be used towards a number of key objectives including:

  • Materials and Equipment
  • Labor and Rent
  • Manufacturing of Rewards
  • Packaging Development
  • Shipping Fees 
  • Development of the Collection 
  • Gallery Exhibition

Risks and challenges

FIRST KICKSTATER

Haute Hero has delivered pieces to over 30 clients in 16 different countries since it’s inception in 2014. Although we have successfully shipped products prior to Kickstarter, this will be our first time launching a crowdfunding campaign and expect to face inherent obstacles with executing for the first time. That being said, I am confident that this campaign will be a success for all involved!

PRODUCTION
 
- Material Supply: We purchase raw materials stock from fabric retailers in the NYC fashion district. In the rare occurrence that a vendor no longer supplies the material, as specified in the prototype shown, we will choose the closest match in color, weight, and texture.
 
- Delivery Delays: The rewards specified above will be Made in USA! However, since there are no factories in U.S. that produce scaled toy products I will work directly with domestic seamstresses to create batch runs of each reward. This decentralized model of production could cause a delay to the shipment of your reward. I will post production delays to the update section of our Kickstarter page. 
 
- Color Accuracy: The color of the final product may differ from that viewed on your computer screen. We try to match the color on the screen to the actual product as closely as possible, however depending on the screen or device used to view the image this can shift varying degrees.
 
- Figure Design: The purpose of this campaign is the raise funds to create and exhibit the first collection of Haute Hero figures. If you purchased one of our figures, please note they are still a work in progress. We will ship the final design of the figure as is. We do not accept returns or refunds. These are works of art that take considerable time and effort to produce. We will do everything to make sure it is as close to what it specifies in the rewards and is of the highest quality.
