Boss Fight Studio Launches Online Action Figure Customization Classes

Boss Fight Studio expands their fan favorite figure customization class to a new online platform amid quarantine

Boston, MA– April 2, 2020 – Boss Fight Studio announces their new online action figure customization class. Their fan favorite Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. action figure line is fully customizable, which empowers collectors to build their own characters using pieces from the range.

“Taking the in-person customization class we’ve held at previous conventions online was something we’d been talking about for a while,” says Erik Arana, Partner and Art Director at Boss Fight Studio, “our fans worldwide are often disappointed when they can’t be at one of the convention classes so this will allow everyone access.”

The versatility of the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line has built a deep fanbase of customizers. A few times a year Boss Fight runs a customizer contest to give their fans a platform to share and inspire. Hundreds of entries get submitted each time the contest is run.

“We’ve been trying to find new ways to entertain our customers during quarantine,” says Catrina Arana, Partner and Art Director at Boss Fight Studio. “We released a free short story featuring some of our most popular characters and got a lot of positive feedback so we continued to push on virtual entertainment ideas. The virtual customizing class was a natural next step for us.”

The class will convene every Tuesday night at 5pm ET for a month via Zoom. Students will receive a box with numbered bags of parts prior to the start of the class. Each week one bag will be opened, and the Boss Fight experts will lead the class through how to paint and modify those pieces. The final character assembly will be a fun surprise.

“We really hope our fans will love this virtual social gathering,” says Erik Arana. “We’re excited for the initial enthusiasm and even have a waitlist going so we may add more classes if there’s enough interest. These are challenging times and we’re just glad we can still connect and entertain our fans.”

The latest edition to the Mighty Steeds line of horses from Boss Fight is colorful, filled with personality, and meant for play.

“When we introduced the Mighty Steeds, we found the market was really excited for horses with more articulation,” says Andrew Franks, Principal Designer at Boss Fight Studio. “Frankie not only brings the fun of multiple articulation points, but really brings fantasy to life with his silver unicorn horn, rainbow mane and tail, and teal underbelly. He’s the perfect addition to our Fantasy line of figures.”

Continuing with record breaking sales as the horses hit the mainstream market earlier this year, the Mighty Steeds line has surprised and delighted customers who know Boss Fight for their highly posable action figures. 

The Mighty Steeds line includes several life-like horses, an elk, and Frankie the Unicorn, as well as accessory kits to turn your horse into Pegasus, various tack kits to help your H.A.C.K.S. action figures ride the horse army in style, and additional accessories needed to build your H.A.C.K.S. army. Just like previous H.A.C.K.S. figures, the Steeds are fully customizable, allowing fans to mix and match parts of their favorite Steeds to create their own unique horse figure. 

“We’ve already started to receive fan custom photos of the Steeds; it’s really amazing to see the creativity and passion our fans are bringing to the Mighty Steeds line,” says Catrina Arana, Principal Designer at Boss Fight Studio. “The passion for customization is really what makes Boss Fight fans so unique.”
