A: McFarlane figures are plastic figures made and produced by McFarlane Toys, under the name McFarlane Sports Picks. Because McFarlane Toys doesn't make figures of every single player on every team, a sports fan interested in seeing a favorite player in figure form will ask a customizer to alter an original figure to represent a player of their choosing. A customizer will then take an original figure and prime, paint, decal, and do any other alterations to it to match the customers specifications.
A: McFarlane Toys make McFarlane Sports Picks in three sizes: 3 inches, 6 inches, and 12 inches. I specialize in 6 in. figures, and to date have only made one 12 in. figure and two 3 in. figures. Making a 3 or 12 in. figure is not out of the question, but I prefer to customize 6 in. figures, so keep that in mind if you wish to make a request. Please note though that making a custom 3 or 12 in. figure will change the estimated price of the figure.
A: After obtaining an original figure, the making of a custom figure usually takes 1-3 weeks. If an original figure is not in stock and has to be ordered, an additional 1-2 weeks is needed. Also allow up to 1-2 weeks for delivery to you. Generally, you can expect to have your custom figure finished and in your hands in a month's time. Please note however that some extra time may be needed if several other orders are needing to be filled ahead of your request and/or if it is during the holiday season.
A: The price of a custom figure depends on several aspects, but one can usually be done somewhere in the $150-200 range. If a figure, for example, takes little to no altering, the uniform design is simple, and/or is generally easier to do, it can usually be done for less money. If a figure takes a lot of altering, the uniform design is complex, and/or is generally harder to do, it will cost more. Also, since I design and create my own decals, it will cost a little extra if I have to create new decals for a team I have not yet made a custom of.

A: Paypal is prefered, but credit/debit card payments through Square and checks/money orders are also accepted. Due to the personalized nature of the product, full payment is required upfront. If payment fails (check bounce, etc.), there will be an extra $30 service charge added to the price, or possible cancelation of the order. Once the order is finished, the customer has 90 days to claim the custom figure(s). If the customer does not claim the figure(s) in this time frame, they lose their rights to the figure(s) with NO refund and the figure(s) become property of Dusty's Custom Figures, which can choose to re-sale at any time.
A: Yes. If a figure request is cancelled, any amount of money paid will NOT be refunded, unless it is early enough in the process that a base figure has not been purchased or custom work has not begun.
A: No. Any figures you see in the Gallery are customs I've done for others or are a part of my personal collection. These figures are not for sale. However, I can make a duplicate figure or a new one to match your specifications. You can Request a Quote or email me at dustin@dustyscustomfigures for a free estimate.
