ARE YOU READY?!

FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA!

Get this Titan on your shelf!

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!

New Titan Body digitial sculpt detail.

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!

Titan Figure Body

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).  

Titan's design towers over our Athletic and Tall Superhoerines bodies (at 1:10th & 1:12th scales).
Articulation Breakdown

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?

Articulated fingers, joints, and palm of the hands.

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!

4 pairs of Hands (Left side - front view, Right Side - back)

*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
  • Angry/Grimace
  • Snarl
  • Battle Cry/Yelling
  • Happy/Crazed
  • 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!*

5 Different Hair Styles
Messy Style
Long Wavy Style
Man-Bun Style
Medium Down Style
Short Style

Let's put The Titan to the test! Time to square him up with some of our office favs!

1/10th Max Factory Guyver 2 (Far Left) & Imakarum (Far Right) Size Comparison
ML SDCC Malekith Size Comparison
ML (2-Pack Version) Colossus Size Comparison

 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.

Products by Fans & For the Fans!

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!

We still get floods of videos, pictures, and updates on our Superheroines! THANK YOU TOY FAM!

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!

Some of our favorite things!

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!

Iron Studios 1/6 Superman Vs Doomsday by Victor
Hawkman – Prime Scale 1/3 sculpted by Victor (Iron Studios & Concept by Ivan Reis).
XM Studios Batman Sanity Statue designed by David Finch (Victor Sculpted Joker & Two-Face)

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! :)

Be sure to follow her on her medias!

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!

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!

Having too much fun every Thursday-Saturday 10PM ET!
Budget Breakdown

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.

From the time we were funded to shipping every order, we keep backers informed via updates!

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!

Planning Joint Cuts (Left) & reworking Teeth sculpt (Right)

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!

Top Left (Shenzhen, China), Bottom Left (Our Manfacturer work many different mediums/companies), Top Right (Various Plastic granules in Test Tubes), Bottom Right (Injection Molding Machine)

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.* 

 ***John Doe (TIMES 10)! - 10 John Doe version Titan bodies. $445 or more!

***Deluxe Pro (TIMES 10)! - 10  Deluxe Pro Bodies, each body with all it's accessories! $690 or more!

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.

Long-lasting design

The entire concept of our blank body products is to be used time and time again for our customer needs. By offering a wide variety of accessories it brings longer shelf life and value to the item since it can be easily adjusted or customized into other projects. Other than the materials it is made out of, the concept is to have a product that is not only versatile with today's leading brands of toys... But to be able to impress 20 years from now.

Reusability and recyclability

We use recycled materials for all our packaging for starters. Secondly, we started looking at packaged as an extension of the product. For instance, with our last Kickstarter our Superheroines were packaging using poly bags that could be used to store materials or the figures themselves when not in use. For larger orders, we had a reusable drawstring tote bag that could be used for various carry-ons outside our figures. We will continue this and further look into packaging our materials with reusable items that keeps them out of landfills and off Mother Earth's lawn!

Sustainable materials

From Recycled shipping cartons, labels, plastics, metal parts (for injection molding), to reusable and bio-degradable materials for housing our products. This is an important aspect to our company and one we always look to improve upon. Unfortunately, not all aspects of our product can be completely 100% environmentally safe. This is the nature of plastics/manufacturing these materials... However, we do constantly research every year in personal R&D alongside our manufacturer to get there faster!

Environmentally friendly factories

The manufacturer we use prides themselves on their clean factories, smart energy efficient machinery, and usage of recycled materials. Our CEO had the opportunity (before our company was conceptualized) to personally tour factories and see this first hand. We are very confident with our Manufacturer in Shenzhen and have been transparent about their smart applications!
