Oxford-based company creates Donald Trump action figure

OXFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A local company has created a Donald Trump action figure, toupee and all. It even talks.

A very excited Emil Vicale is counting down the days until his Oxford based company starts selling the Donald.“I think he’ll dig it. I think he’s gonna love it. It’s huuuuuge. That’s what he says. Anyone who’s his age and can do some fantastic stuff with his hair, I love him, because I can’t do anything,” Vicale said.

Since February 2002, Vicale’s company, Herobuilders.com, has been custom making action figures of the world’s leaders and villains.

Vicale says there’s an official hero builder’s male figure, so he didn’t create the buff body specifically for the Donald. “The thing that makes this different, is it’s heroically proportioned, bigger than any other action figure.”

He says every time a new action figure is made, the head is sculpted with a specific mold. A lot of the other work is also done in Connecticut. “The painting, the assembly, the shipping, the basic, and the management and the design,” said Vicale.

There’s even a voice chip. He says, “It reverberates through the empty cavity. That’s how you get the really great sound.”

Vicale says it costs $59.95 to have a Donald with a voice and $39.95 without the voice.

He says you can’t buy the Donald until the first week of October on the website herobuilders.com.
