Hasbro 6" Selfie Action Figure Series?!?

by Jay Cochran
May 24, 2022
I am not entirely sure what to make of this strange section that temporarily appeared on the HasbroPulse website called the Selfie Section. From the looks of it, these appeared to be figures from Hasbro's various 6" lines (Star Wars Black Series, GIJoe Classified, Power Rangers Lightning Collection, Ghostbusters Plasma Collection and Marvel Legends) where you could have a headsculpt with your own likeness put on the them. Each one was listed with a price of $60 each.



The section was discovered under a developer link on the site which was accessible via Google. Just do a Google search for Hasbro Selfie Series for it to come up. What's not clear is whether this is something Hasbro is actually planning on doing or if they were just testing out something on the website. The actual Selfie section now appears to have been removed but they had a number of figures listed for the various brands including some that even indicated they were going to be store exclusives to Best Buy and Walgreens. Each listing had a known figure body like Snake Eyes, Iron Man Mandalorian and Red Power Ranger with a generic headsculpt on it. I am not even sure how Hasbro could pull such a thing off as a general release which makes me lean towards this not being an actual product they plan to release, but who knows?

If or when more details become available we will be sure to update you here.

I attempted to do the face scan thing multiple times but it didnt seem to work for me. I suppose the Chinese government will be happy with my face scans though

I see the $20 price hike being a dealbreaker to a lot of people....but, $80 is still cheaper than getting a customizer to make a figure for you.

just like he kinda outdid Hasbro by releasing a vehicle with figure at a great price, I wish Mcfarlane would do this idea and at a lower cost

Yeah, at $60 I was okay even if it's overpriced. At $80..... I'm really rethinking this.

Didn't have any interest in these myself..but it feels like a cheap move to get people excited about these, and then at time of release say "hey actually can we get another 20 out of you for these?" Hasbro's just doing so much greedy looking business these past few weeks, just more and more money grubbing moves (at least from the consumer looking in perspective) SMH.

Back in July Hasbro announced a new line of Selfie Action Figures that would be available. The properties ranged from Power Rangers, Star Wars, GI Joe and others that Hasbro sells. Initially it was said to be $60 per figure but now according to Gizmodo the price has been raised to $80 per figure. Gizmodo reports Starting this Friday, September 30, collectors whove always wanted to immortalize themselves as a six-inch action figure can download the Hasbro mobile app (on either Android or iOS) and use it to order a custom Selfie Series figure. According to instructions you can ONLY order these figures through the mobile app which makes sense due to the fact that you need to upload an image of yourself. You also NEED to include at least five headshots to be submitted, including a required front view, plus several angled shots from the left and right with proper lighting and facial expressions in order to get the best results. Customers are also given choices on what hair styles and facial hair from 14 different options.Figure styles include Stormtrooper, X-Wing pilot, Leia, Mandalorian, Black Panther, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Red Power Ranger, Pink Power Ranger, Snake Eyes, Scarlett and a male or female Ghostbuster with delivery of said figure about 45-60 days from purchase.
