Cosplay ambassador Tanya Tate continued her geek media immersion last week with the debut of her customisable vinyl action figure platform; My Hero Toys! Tanya made a signing appearance at the Powercon convention, the annual celebration of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe franchise, over the weekend of 14th and 15th September in California.
A noted cosplayer (character costume enthusiast), Tanya has been featured on a multitude of geeky fan-sites for her fun and sexy take on her hobby. As an added attraction, Tanya has created a vinyl figure platform, which she displayed at Powercon. My Hero Toys! is the line of vinyl figures Tanya is set to produce and release in 2014. In the shape of a female superhero, My Hero Toys! will allow customisers to design their own characters or re-create a pop culture or comic book hero.
“Powercon is one of my favourite events,” said Tanya. “I wanted to do something special, and unveiling this project that I have been working on for most of 2013 seemed like the right thing to do. I am entering the customisable and collectible vinyl figure market next year and hope that fans of this genre will support it.”
On the My Hero Toys! platform Tanya plans to also produce a limited run of the character she created – Lady Titan.
Customisable vinyl figure platforms have become a popular hobby. From artists using the base to express their creativity to fans opening their imagination, vinyl figures have become part of pop culture.
Tanya Tate’s My Hero Toys! customizable vinyl figure will be available first quarter 2014. More information and Tanya’s Powercon promotional video are available on her website at JustaLottaTanya.com.
