Hello and thank you for your interest in obtaining a custom figure from
Playactioncustoms.com. Typically we divide these orders into two sections
(NFL/NCAA Football) & Personalized figures. If you are interested in multiple
figures then please list the information for each player or include information
for each in an email that you send.
In some cases a previously made figure can be remade. It will still be
one-of-a-kind in nature due to decals, dirt, etc, being in slightly different
places. If you'd like a quote for a specific figure then make it known by saying
you want Adrian Peterson 1, vs. Adrian Peterson 15 as an example. If I have made
multiple figures of a player such as Peterson in the above example if you can
provide the # in the heading of the post or simply copy and paste an image into
the email then that will help streamline the process. If you simply say you want
a quote on Adrian Peterson then that complicates the process.
If you are looking to have a figure of your
favorite NFL or NCAA player, then please fill out the custom request form below.
Over a players career a player can wear numerous uniforms, so if you have
something specific in mind such as a throwback jersey, or an AFL jersey or
something to reference a specific year, then please include that information. If
you would like to forward images, then you can email them to
This section is mostly for the following types of figures:
·High School Teams
·Youth League Teams (pee-wee, midget, pop warner)
·Smaller College Teams (Intermural, Club)
·Arena League Teams (Indoor)
·Minor League Football teams.
For the most part when it comes to a
personalize figure the process goes smoother when you can provide multiple
figures of the player/team in question. If images of the particular player are
somewhat limited, but you have images of the same team, then I capture the
uniform details from other players. In this particular case it’s better to have
too many images as opposed to not enough so feel free to send links to websites
that contain the photography attach the images to an email and send it to
This section can include NFL & NCAA figures, if you want your likeness
represented as a player for one of those teams. For this, it is likely better
for you to submit the form and mention that it is a personalized figure and
provide the details.
Upon receiving the information you will receive a quote, or a follow up email
with questions that I have prior to providing a quote.
I don’t have a set price for any given figure. I do have pricing equation based
on the following: Base Figure + Uniform Scheme (Paint/Decals) + Customization +
Custom Insert & Package + S/H. The custom insert /customization has to be
mentioned prior to the quote (see below for more information).
When receiving a quote it is imperative for you to let me know whether you want
to proceed due to the timing & scheduling of the work, along with the potential
fluctuation of the price of the base figure (at times I have to purchase the
base figure off of eBay and if the figure I quoted is no longer available then I
have to revisit the quote.
Prices of quotes on the website are generally cheaper than those via offers on
eBay (not auctions), because if the order is placed via the website, eBay
doesn't get their 10% of the pie.
So please let me know whether you’d like to proceed or not.
I would define the term base figure as
the Mcfarlane figure used to produce the custom off of. For example this Mel
Blount Figure was made off of the Ronnie Lott Mcfarlane pictured here: Base
figures can be found at
On the left hand side of the web page you can view the base figures subdivided
by position. Prices for base figures can range from $10.00 and up with some
reaching $50 to $75.00.
Most however are priced in the $15.00 to $25.00
range. If you would like to
provide the base figure to be used, then that will remove that portion of the
Some teams have more detailed or complicated
uniform designs. For example a modern Minnesota Vikings uniform has more details
than say the Oakland Raiders. So teams are priced in various ranges from ones
that have less details to the ones that are more complicated. Some teams have
such as Oregon have extremely complicated components such as chrome/mirrored
look. The uniform can be done, but the chrome/mirrored look cannot be
accomplished exactly as it looks.
I need to know the jersey color, pants color, and helmet color (it is better if
you can send an image of the uniform you'd like for the figure to capture), that
This encompasses part switches, facemask switches(in some cases), combination
figures, sculpting, shaving, putting two figures on one base, and pretty much
anything that is required outside of a straight repaint. Long hair, dread locks,
beards, etc can also be added to the figures, as can tattoos if you can provide
high quality images of the tattoo. The quote you receive does not include any of
the above items unless it is mentioned prior to the quote. So if you receive a
quote for x and then later inquire about a players tattoos then they will have
to be evaluated and quoted separately. Basically any small detail
that you would like replicated in the custom figure needs to be brought to my
Custom Package & Insert:
First of all, not every figure can have a
custom package & insert made for it, the quote you receive does not contain
information on a custom package & insert unless you specifically mention it.
Adding a custom package/insert to a figure is $20.00. I have a few templates
that I have created and the inserts pretty much fall into one of those
templates. Samples of custom packaging can be viewed here: http://playactioncustoms.com/custom-packaging/
Multiple figure order discounts
As many of you are aware I have a tiered quantity discount
installed for the paint/decals portion of the pricing equation. Following Super
Bowl XLVIII, I will be altering that chart as follows:
2-5 figures will receive a 5% discount off the paint/decals
portion of the order.
6-14 figures will receive a 10% discount off the paint/decals
portion of the order.
15+ figures will receive a 15% discount off the paint/decals
portion of the order.
As always these totals will be cumulative to accommodate
smaller orders while rewarding multiple purchases.
If a figure is to be purchased for a gift then the date the gift/figure is
needed by is needed prior to the quote.
Shipping & Handling:
The custom figures are shipped with insurance and I typically use priority mail.
International Orders: I will ship to wherever. What I normally do will gather
quotes from USPS, UPS, & Fed Ex and let the customer select the service. When a
figure shipped with insurance the USPS may require a signature. If the figure is
returned to me because it was never picked up at the post office, a reshipment
fee will be required.
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of each individual project payment is
required upfront. In the case of a large multi-figure order a 50% deposit can be
placed and the remaining balance is due after you have reviewed the
final photography. Once the balance is paid, the figures will be shipped out.
I do accept PayPal payments and my PayPal address is
I can accept a money order or check however I do wait for the funds to clear my
bank prior to shipping when it comes to a check. Due to the time that it takes
to create a custom figure this has yet to be an issue.
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of these hand painted custom made items these
items cannot be cancelled at any point in time for any reason.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
The Artist reserves the right to make any artistic corrections and or changes,
that will help expedite an order if and only if the need arises.
