WE ARE BACK! After the tremendously successful Superheroines 1/10th & 1/12th figures (THANKS TO YOU!), we are here to continue the line. This time BIGGER and BETTER than ever! These blanks are made for the everyday artist, hobbyist, and collector! To the customizers needing base bodies/more fodder, artists looking for anatomical drawing references, collectors who want more on their shelves, and of course the Digital/Traditional sculptors needing a poseable armature! Let's go!
The Titan Body is a new and original articulated Male blank body action figure, representing a larger humanoid or monster body type found in comics, movies, and animation. Titan is 1:12th (6” inch) Scale however he stands a whopping 9” inches tall (228.6mm/22.86cm)! He will be no slouch compared to your bigger Mezco One:12 Collective Figures, Build-A-Figure Marvel Legends behemoths, DC Classics Collect & Connect style New Gods, NECA & Mafex monstrosities, and... Oh you get the point!
We look at Titan as roughly a 9’0” - 10”0” foot tall bruiser! We want to offer a hefty hero body type but also an imposing villain (for all you Baddies out there).
You asked and we answered! We have over 30 points of articulation now! Double jointed elbows/knees, abdominal crunch, an improved ankle pivot/toe articulation, new crotch/thigh joint for split range, waist swivel, butterfly shoulders, and a 2 part neck system for strong head range are some key highlights. Continuing our trend from the Superheroine body types we are furthering and strengthening our range, breakdown, and quality. Our Superheroines have been nabbed by almost every major customizer and collector known, a blessing which helped us scrutinize this new body.
**We are constructing these with stronger joints and the ability to be broken down easier for better joint dismemberment and customizing! We are heeding your call from the Superheroines and we again are pushing major improvements!**
How about some swap out hands with Articulated Fingers?
NO expense is being spared here and this is going to be very taxing on manufacturing and costly to do. We do not look at this project as reinventing the wheel but bringing you all the best known elements from action figures into one base body!
Like before our collaborating manufacturer is helping us flex the accessories to help further your current/newly planned customs! That means MORE FODDER and MORE DISPLAY VARIETY!
4 pairs of hands to work with!
*Listed in Order*
- Relaxed Open Hands (open palmed)
- Dynamic Hands (Power/Force gestured action open)
- Clenched Fists
- Gripping/C-Clamp Hands (for larger weapons, accessories, vehicles)
2 pairs of interchangeable feet w/ ankle rockers
- Bare Feet
- Superhero Boots (Flat Soled)
6 Head Sculpts w/ Custom Expressions
- Neutral Expression
- Battle Cry/Yelling
- Cowl Head
1 Pair of Articulated Hands
These hands have a bend at one digit in the 4 fingers as well as hinge from the palm, the thumb is on one-digit hinge. A special feature that we felt was essential to give the customizer/collector more versatility in their displays.
5 Hair Styles; pieces made of a dense, flexible, and durable material to cap either of those head sculpts. *These will cap in place via key system, just like the Superheroine's hair sculpts!*
Let's put The Titan to the test! Time to square him up with some of our office favs!
Even at the 1:12th scaling we feel he is a very large and imposing body type. He can be versatile with 1:10th scale too, similar to using Marvel Select to compliment some Marvel Legend figures or teams. The 9" inch height gives him good adaptability, keeps him in the forefront of your collection, as well as help enhance your existing pieces.
Our philosophy is "Products By Fans & For The Fans™", this is at the very heart of all our creations!
Maven Collectibles LLC is a model kit production and 3D Design company from Richmond, VA. Our mantra is delivering the highest quality product to date with smart engineering and luxurious materials. We believe in keeping the hobbyist at the heart for all our products. This is to help ensure value back in a collector’s display and investment. From sharing our approaches with Chaz Fitzhugh (Senior Account Director of Consumer Products) @ Warner Bros. Headquarters (Burbank, CA), creating award winning model-kits, designing new product sculpts for companies & artists, and to delivering thousands of Superheroine action figures last year (from our successful Kickstarter)... We continue to push our knowledge and execute our expertise day in and day out!
Check out this rad video by action figure extraordinaire "Shartimus Prime" of our Superheroines figure line! He also did a follow-up with the Tall Bodies. We are so thankful to his support and encouragement. This is one of MANY reviewers out there but we <3 you all!
Adding to our roster from last year, our new partners are immensely talented and have helped shape this new project. Such as the joining of immensely talented Victor Hugo Sousa who re-sculpted/redesigned our TITAN body! Victor has done work for XM Studios, Iron Studios, Kotobukiya and is wildly recognized by Pixologic (creators of ZBrush 3D Sculpting Software). Read more here via the announcement on our website written by our owner Jason Rosa!
Last but not least, Leslie aka Marveles! She is a Pop Culture Lover, Collector, Video/Content Creator, Action Figure Customizer, and new partner here! She has been an avid supporter of our work and her involvement is a tremendous help! She is an admin to our new Otaku Class Facebook group and she reports action figure news with MISB Media < Check out our buds here! We are more than thrilled to have her contribute to this project! She called our TITAN a "hottie" so yeah! There's that too! :)
Need more convincing who we are? Well you are in luck! You could come see us live on TWITCH! Every Thursday-Saturday at 10pm ET! The aim here is to talk candidly and openly about what we love the most! We share business insight, talk new toy/hobby news, have guest stars in and around various industries, share new work, get silly and laugh out loud, and we even talk about being a better or flawed human being! It's about connectivity with other creatives and supporters of creatives. So come on in, follow us, even subscribe with your Amazon Prime account (we do huge giveaways), but most of all come chat with us and be our friends! We love this community and we want to know all about your story!
Our last Kickstarter was no small feat for us, and we learned a great deal moving forward. Although we know how to move from “concept to proof” with experience… We never get complacent or even comfortable in executing our goals.
We have a designated QC team in the country that manufactures our products aiding our goals. This helps us break down delays and puts hands on problem solving in the equation. We also make trips at critical moments in production, working directly with the factory owners/artisans. Not a sales-rep or liaison as many companies and customizers do. The budget we set forth is modest, but the further this goes, the more control we will have over this project. Unfortunately, there are just some things that cannot be negotiated down.
Our figures are using a variety of materials and require precision of the highest degree to fabricate. We utilize and improve on the exact same techniques used by giant companies, but being a smaller company, we do not qualify for the same type of cost-effective incentives such as cheaper logistics (shipping/receiving). This means all we do really does come from us!
An example of this can now be shown with our Superheroines. Our CEO Jason Rosa processed and packaged thousands of orders for the Superheroines alone and was essential to the entire workflow in China. Executive VP Jim Posey works customer service along with former Logistics Manager Albert Clanton on the time of their release. Mercedes Jennings worked closely with adjusting all engineering and sculpt details solving critical issues that the manufacturing was held up on. And the entire team as well as the affiliates and partners of the Twitch, kept customers regularly informed with the progress and work involved. In short, we are a small crew but operate on a large-scale level. The more funding we reach, the better we perform.
Our manufacturer is located in China (Shenzhen) and has extensive experience in fine art statues and action figure production. They work with some of the largest businesses in the collectible world. In China, there are many factories that produce items yet only a handful of them can achieve high quality results. That said, we’ve been fortunate to work with the best in the industry for our products. We ourselves are very familiar with the medium and work involved from experience! BUT LET’S NOT FORGET ALL OF YOU! To the supporters and purchasers of our products, the feedback you send us directly has greatly helped us dissect this project even more. We are accountable for our products and we aim to deliver!
Exclusivity, Quality, and Accountability is our “Maven Standard”. So, these figures will look great alongside mass market figures/toys, but hold a unique and crisp presentation. For us, it's just the way it should be!
**PACKAGING: We will continue the "Toe Tags" labels for these customs like we did for the Superheroines. We are still pushing to be environmental friendly with low impact packaging but using high quality protection such as protective foam (the same used for computer parts), keeping your figures/accessories safe! We use durable and sustainable materials and our manufacturer uses recycled materials as well to create blanks and or the packaging. We do our part when and where we can! It's important to us to have a small footprint on Earth but to ensure your product arrives safely!**
*We are able to discount with higher volume orders which was approved to us by our manufacturer.*

Risks and challenges
We at Maven are aware that the process of bringing you the highest quality articulated action figure is easier said than done. Even more so since delivering our first run of Superheroine action figures. We are in constant contact with our manufacturer to ensure that any unforeseen delays and miscommunications are corrected in an expedited manner. We will also be visiting to do onsite Quality Assurance at critical times to rectify issues to prevent any delays. Our design team is available to work with any engineering concerns at a moment’s notice. This is something we have proudly gained praise on (with other businesses), with how we navigate for our collaborative ventures.
This has a lot to do with that we actually know how to make them too! Having this extensive engineering knowledge helps us design a better product. We are big pop culture fans so we are committed to the making of a superior product for your customizing/collecting needs.
