HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Tanya Tate is embarking full throttle on an Indiegogo.com campaign to complete production on her My Hero Toys customizable vinyl figure platform. The My Hero Toys vinyl figure is designed to be customizable by the user to create various characters, established or new. The customizable vinyl figure craze has become a popular hobby as of late, one that major media companies have taken part in. Tate saw the need for a heroic female platform and began designing it over a year ago. Now, as the My Hero Toys line goes into the final phase of production, she is looking to crowdsourcing for completion.
“I saw that there wasn't an already established strong female blank form, so I created one,” said the popular cosplayer. “It has been a long and exciting journey to produce this figure and I’m very close to completion. I look forward to having these in hand soon with the help of my supporters.”

The perks of the campaign that funders may receive include items that range from the figures themselves, exclusive figures, signed memorabilia by Tanya and even resin prototypes of the My Hero Toys figure.
Indiegogo.com is a crowdfunding site that allows people from all over the world to come together and fund passion projects. Millions have contributed to various projects that include filmmaking, inventions, music and more.
To aid in Tanya’s quest, she has posted a YouTube video that explains what inspired her to create this line of figures and what fun things creative individuals can do with them.
Part of Tanya’s marketing campaign strategy is to create awareness via social media. With her Facebook likes at nearly 400,000 and her Twitter followers surpassing 300,000 strong, the potential to reach her goal is within her grasp.
