If you were an action figure...

It has always been a dream of mine to have my own action figure, and it should be your dream too!

So, if you were suddenly confronted with a toy company that wanted to make an action figure out of you, what would your toy be wearing, and what kind of accessories would it have? You may have no more than 3 accessories.

Mine would likely just be wearing normal street clothes: jeans, a button-down shirt with rolled-up sleeves, and Chuck Taylors. My accessories would be a bottle of booze (because I'm a bartender), a set of dumbbells, and chapstick.

Blue jeans and a quarter zip sweater with Chelsea boots. I would come with an interchangeable robot hand and two cats.

I can always snake a few more traditional accessories from some GI Joes or a Star Wars guy.

"I'm an action figure!"


As for the actual topic, no idea. Just like I can't design a logo for myself because there's too many different facets to my life, I can't decide on just one "look" for an action figure.

Re: If you were an action figure...

My action figure is dressed all in black leather and with black combat boots and slightly too low heavy zipper in the cleavage area. Her hair is an auburn mass of tendrils.

She comes with these accessories: super comfy computer chair, computer, cup of tea.

Re: If you were an action figure...

Hmm...the outfit would be a sweater, jeans, and of course my glasses (not counting that as an accessory--sorry--because they're not optional...NO contacts for me!).

I'm also going to have to go for the two cats options as well. They would stick to my action figure with magnets, especially in the "curled up in Mommy's lap" position where they are most often found when I'm in the house.

The other accessory would be the laptop. It, notably, would NOT have magnets to sit on my lap. It always has to be off to the side, because of the cats. They have claimed indisputable priorty.

Re: If you were an action figure...

Heh. I'd be the first "actionless" action figure.

I'd be in dark blue jeans, a brown cascade cardigan over a blue shirt, and brown Merrells. My accessories would be a blue shoulder bag, a pen and a large black and gray striped cat.

Re: If you were an action figure...

My action figure wears a glittery blue and silver mermaid costume.

Her accessories are a comb for brushing her lushious long hair, a real pearl and a trident.

Re: If you were an action figure...

My action figure would be along the lines of Clive Barker's Tortured Souls. Cause you know..whips and chains and whatnot.

Re: If you were an action figure...

I'd want two versions:

Professional Warp Coil: dark wash jeans; cotton sweater over a striped, collared, button-down shirtl black dress shoes. Accessories are a blackberry, laptop and cup of coffee.

Casual Warp Coil: baggy jeans; t-shirt and zip-up hoodie; sneakers. Accessories are iPhone, a baseball bat (I don't play baseball... I just want a weapon to hit people with), and a chinchilla.

I'd be curious to see how many accessories and how big a wardrobe Holdfast's action figure comes with!
