Well, I was quite excited when I got this product, the idea is solid and the potential is there. However, I was a bit disappointed in the results. I wanted to make a character who was a Mexican Luchador. Unfortunately, most characters are limited to being black (signified by the menu choice "Afro") or very white. You can make Asian characters, but only martial artists-- and the martial artists cannot be tweaked to be anything but Asian. For my costume, I was limited to Blue or Red for the Boots, pants, cape, mask, etc. I could not make it green and gold. Masks are rather plain-- either standard domino masks in limited colors, or solid full-face masks. I could not make a decorative mask. He could only have a full cape, no half-capes were available, and the only belt was a rather skinny one, not the thick wrestler's championship belt that I wanted...

I was able to make something that looked decently close to the concept-- but I will have to print it in black & white and color it in by hand to get the color scheme I wanted (and to decorate the mask).

This product is okay, for letting you customize heroes, but not nearly as versatile as Hero Machine. It is too bad too, because I like the base artwork of this product better than that of Hero Machine. I think if a few more options (especially color choices) were added to this product it could be much better.

We added many more color options to this basic figure set. Customers who purchased it can now re-download it. Please note that while you can design a huge number of different heroes with it, you cannot obtain just any character concept from it. Future sets (Set #2 is now available, too) will provide a wider variety of templates from which you can build your hero of choice.
