Phase 1 – Action Figure Design
It all begins with your vision – you provide us with photos, sketches, and a description as to what you want your Action Figure to look like. The size and number of joint articulations is also defined at this time.
Sonos will start by creating pencil drawings for your review, comments and approval, and we will complete two rounds of changes included if needed.
When you have approved the pencil design, color will be added to the pencil drawing, and another two rounds of changes are included if needed.
Once the colors are approved for your design concept, Sonos will add the technical specs to complete the design to production spec’s with production numbers for precise manufacturing.
Phase 2 – Action Figure Sculpting
In the next step of the process, we sculpt your custom action figure from the production design as well as the details from the photos you provide. We will provide multiple views of your sculpted custom action figure, and up to two rounds of minor tweaks to the sculpt if needed.
Accessories can also be sculpted to complete the action figure on your dreams, and are usually designed and created from photos or drawings.
Phase 3 – Pre-Production Prototype
With the digital sculpting approved, it is time to create the pre-production action figure prototype. The points of articulation for each joint need to be engineered, which increases play value for the end customer. Once the joint articulation is complete, and the individual parts are fabricated, your custom action figure is ready to be assembled and painted, per your design specs.
Your custom action figure is then ready for professional ‘Studio Style’ product photos of your finished action figure. Product phots are included FREE, and done at the end of the prototype phase. These images can be used for your website design, packaging concepts and other promotional activities.
Logo & Package Design
Once your custom action figure is ready for production, you’ll need professional branding, artwork and packaging. We can design the logo based on your action figure design, provide design and photography services for your packaging, AND provide you with an ecommerce website on which to sell your new custom action figure.
Production & Delivery
The process would not be complete without a way to manage production, warehousing and delivery of your new custom action figures. We provide turn-key services for all of this. We will take delivery of your manufactured action figure, provide warehousing, and drop-ship to your customers as you focus on sales. You will be in the best position for your entrepreneurial spirit to succeed!
