Monitor Our Progress! Be Apart of updating Female Action Figures!

Superheroine Tall (left) & Athletic body.

Our aim is to enhance female figure bodies for collectors & customizers. Think a stronger blank body foundation, between human realistic anatomy and the stylized illustrations from our favorite artists. Many collectors will notice the vast differences between the statue and model kit details, versus the action figure realm. We know this is due to the challenging nature of toy engineering and thus, details tend to become forced in. We live in, "the practicality of design" with our art pieces and we are excited to show you our Superheroine body type.

We have two base 1/10th scale foundations, one we call the Superheroine Athletic Body and other the Superheroine Tall*These will come in either a light or dark gray primer.*

1. Superheroine Athletic - Is a muscular medium build female body. We look at this as roughly a 5’0” - 6”0” foot tall woman (which tends be a normal superheroine heights), in our 7” inch scaling or 1/10th foundation. For this we are thinking Rogue, Powergirl, Psylocke, and Wonder Woman type characters.

2. Superheroine Tall - Is a larger 8” inch body, more defined and stronger physique than the Athletic build. What came to mind was 7’0”-8’0” foot tall for more stout and physically imposing characters (i.e. She-Hulk, Thundra, Hela, and Big Barda sort of scaling).

Being collectors and 3D designers, we know the challenges with a figure that looks great but functions. We’ve combined years of what we loved about fine art sculptures/action figures and talked about what we felt should be product mainstays. We spent a good 4 years investigating our ideas with some of the greatest customizers and toy designers in the world. Our result is a range of motion and joints that are familiar, enhanced, and finely tuned. We then took our experiences of mass manufacturing from concept art, prototyping, tooling-master, and mass quantity molds to the sculpting process.

We want to provide a better canvas to work with but also retain familiarity in shape and movement. We also aren't looking to replace the fodder you may already have for customizing. As well as compliment them and bring improvements. This is to be cost conscious for our customers but still offer an adaptable product. So you can keep your pieces and or mix match with ours to create the ultimate base bodies/characters.

We have Toe Articulation w/ Ankle Pivots too!! Old school collectors will remember this feature but it's now commonly found on larger 1/6th or 1/4th scale figures. This brings more range for display options and helps customization. We offer 2 pairs of feet, boots and bare feet.

With utilizing our current collaborating manufacturer for our products, we are able to extend the accessories to help further your current /newly planned customs!

5 pairs of hands to work with!

  • Open Hands (Power/Force gestured action open).
  • Gripping/C-Clamp Hands (for weapons, accessories, vehicles)
  • Relaxed Open Hands (open palmed)
  • Clenched Fists

2 pairs of interchangeable feet with ankle rockers in place.

We picked the 1/10th or 7” inch scale for a few major reasons.

1.) It’s a size that can work with 6” inch (or 1:12th scale) figures or other scales, depending on the character. We think back to our collecting habits where we may get a Marvel Select Colossus or Juggernaut to battle our Marvel Legends X-Men teams. This scale is adaptable and brings presence to a diorama.

2.) The 1/10th scale is on the up and up for collectors now. This is a common sizing for many licenses. We started to see a boom in the 1/10th statue lines but sadly a big issue is many characters will not get to see the light of day. That means MORE Bruce Wayne Batman over Talia al Ghul. We like the Dark Knight but we need stronger female leads!

3.) 1/10th scale also is known to have a little to no articulation in figure form but higher sculpted details. This has always been frustrating for collectors (definitely us) when you are stuck with a sculpted pose. Our products will look great with say 1/10th scale from Kotobukiya ARTFX, NECA, Gentle Giant LTD, Tsume, XTRA Statues, McFarlane Toys, Marvel/Diamond Select, DC Direct/DC Collectibles Designer Series, and Iron Studios to name a few.

"OKAY!! We need more Women in 1/10th Scale!"
"OKAY!! We need more Women in 1/10th Scale!"

4.) Another important point for us is it feels like there is only 1 female figure in a line at time. If that figure is popular Jim Lee Jean Grey or Rogue, it almost becomes inaccessible when the third market gets a hold of her. Let’s not forget how female figures also tend to look soft in details and although could work to build on, it’s not fair with the male figure body variety. For those collectors out there who have daughters this is a point that comes to mind too often. We want to help by offering versatility to the few female blanks/figures available in this scale.

Maven Collectibles LLC is a model kit producer from Richmond, VA. Their mantra is delivering the highest quality product to date with smart engineering and luxurious materials. They believe in keeping the hobbyist at the heart for all their products. This is to help ensure value back in a collector’s display and investment. Last year, they were invited to share their methodology at Warner Bros. Headquarters (in Burbank, CA) for model kits/toys. Since then they have produced a 1/6th Scale Sun Wukong Garage Resin Model kit (a tribute to Kong: Skull Island). Maven’s work and approach on their first release was wildly popular with praises from many model kit/statue publishing’s (i.e. Kaiju Battle News, Marvelous Statue) and even attracted interests for consecutive G-Fest Award Winning Kaiju Modeler - Jon "Legrandzilla" LeGrand to paint the model.

We work for quality and value!

Although we know how to do something from experience, we never get comfortable. 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 customizer's do. Our manufacturer is located in Mainland China and has extensive experience in fine art statues and action figure production. They work with some of the largest businesses in the collectibles 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. Also we ourselves are very familiar with the medium and work involved from experience!

We hold improvements, quality, and production to a very high standard. In fact, we define our Exclusivity, Quality, and Accountability as 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!

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. 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.
