Last week, McFarlane Toys announced a new, fresh idea that has everyone on board: A digital Build-a-Figure, with an upcoming wave of 3 physical, actual action figures that will come with a redeemable code (or Redemption code) to redeem a digital Build-a-Figure. Here are instructions on what to do with your digital Build-a-Figure!

Here is the official announcement: "Batman (DC Rebirth), Aquaman (DC Classic), Green Lantern (The Silver Age) 7" Figures w/McFarlane Toys Digital Collectibles Bundle (3). Collect all 3 to unlock a McFarlane Toys Digital Build-a-Figure - Mongul!". Exciting!

How to assemble my digital Build-a-Figure?

Once you have registered, connected your wallet and redeemed your Redemption code, you will have your digital Build-a-Figure pieces displayed in your wallet. First, you will need a digital hair dryer, or digital boiling water (each sold separately), to warm up your digital Build-a-Figure pieces, so that you can assemble the figure easily. Just warm up the digital Build-a-Figure pieces for 20-30 seconds and then, the pieces should be easy to assemble.

What if there is a issue with my digital Build-a-Figure?

If there is a QC (Quality control) issue with your figure, there are several ways to proceed:
-If the digital Build-a-Figure has some paint issues, you will be able to buy a digital paint brush and digital paint (sold separately) in order to fix it.
-If the articulations are too tight, we suggest using the digital hair dryer (sold separately) on the articulations that are stuck.
-If the articulations are too loose, you will be able to get some digital water-based polyurethane (similar to "Kiki fix loose joints"), or digital super-glue (also sold separately), to put in the loose joints in order to tighten them.
-Additionally, if you want to return a digital Build-a-Figure piece, you will have to return the physical, actual figure in the real world, in order to get a new one, with a new digital Build-a-Figure Redemption code.

What are you looking forward to do with your digital Build-a-Figure? Let us know in the comments!

I remember being appalled by the thought of digital comics and digital games without physical copies when those were introduced as well and those have almost kind of become the norm now (not to mention digital currency??). I certainly hope this never does, or maybe I do so I'll finally stop spending so much money on this hobby after a quarter of a century. ? I never dreamed that I'd be almost 50 and still collecting action figures. I think that would be something that would finally get me to stop.

That is a very good point about digital comics and games (and cryptocurrencies)!

See, the thing with me is that the whole idea of collecting figures is so I can own a physical and tangible representation of my favorite comic and movie characters. Something that I can physically pose and display. Having a digital action figure defeats the purpose of that.

Yep, I'm 100% in agreement with you on that if that wasn't clear. I'm not really interested in digital anything, to be quite honest.

I'm one of those old timers that thinks that we're already too dependent upon the internet and the "cloud." Having been born in the mid 70's, I'm just old enough to remember when the common person didn't even have access to the internet. My first time having access was in computer labs in late high school and college. I shudder to think what what happen to us today if we suddenly lost that (although I doubt we'd care much about action figure collections at that point).

I do understand wanting to profit from the whole NFT/crypto thing, so I dont question McFarlane there, but I would still prefer there be a physical BAF involved as well.

These digital figures McFarlane is doing now are just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

"Last week, McFarlane Toys announced a new, fresh idea that has everyone on board..."

Had me rolling right off the bat.
