Brad Carlson from Minneapolis, MN says


On Sunday night, my wife Stephanie, and son Theo, surprised me with a figure you painted. It is amazing. Your attention to detail is incredible. The piece is simply awesome.

I’ve shared pictures with many of my teammates and opponents, as well as my non-hockey playing friends, and each has been truly impressed with your craftsmanship. Even so, the pictures don’t do it justice… it’s even more impressive in person.

Thanks for sharing your talent with the hockey world so we can have lasting pieces of art representing our playing days. I may never get my name on the Stanley Cup, but nobody else will have what you created for me.

Hello Shane,

I just received the  McDavid sports figurine. I must tell you, I have NEVER been so impressed with a

figurine like this of ANY sports or non-sports person. The quality, likeness and attention to detail of the McDavid figurine is so unique and

life-like, and so incredibly to scale. You have a rare talent and your creativity is unequaled. I commend you on such a brilliant piece, as I’m

sure the others you make are as well.

I wanted to (and fortunately did) win this figurine for my son. He has been the Equipment Manager for the Erie Otters the past two seasons,

and developed a close and solid friendship with Connor McDavid. Unfortunately, Erie was unable to beat Oshawa in the OHL Championship

round, and my son will be home in a few weeks. This will be one great Welcome Home gift for him and a source of appreciation of great memories

and friendship with Connor for many years to come. Again, thanks and congratulations on a such a beautiful piece and best of successes!

best regards, Leonard Putzig (Trumbull, CT)

Rachel from Toronto says

He absolutely loved it!  Said it was the best present ever. He’s bringing it to his party tonight to show people. He says he wants to thank you himself at some point and will definitely mention you to his hockey buddies and on his website as well. Thanks for everything.

Mike from Toronto says

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for the custom figure. I was blown away and have already recommended you to many people.

You did absolutely amazing work and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m hoping I can put an ad for you on my website www.fnhockey.ca with your permission.

Hi ShaneMerry Christmas to you and your loved ones.The figure was a hit! My son loves it 🙂

Thanks again, and here’s to the Habs having a great second half. I enjoy your positive energy on HIO, and see you have same great enthusiasm for your figurines.

Greg (part II) From Detroit says

Shane,  Brendan’s personalized hockey figure turned out awesome and as you can see by the look in this photo he LOVES it.  Definitely a huge highlight this morning. And thank you so much for the hockey cards. He can’t believe that you sent him those cards especially the Lidstrom jersey insert card.  That was very kind of you and we really appreciate the hard work and detail you put into this.  We can’t thank you enough.  Definitely worth every bit of money in fact seeing the final result you don’t charge enough for what you create.  Thanks again and Merry Christmas!!!

I googled “personalize sports figure” and went through a bunch of sites before coming across yours which your product with packaging completely outdid anything I came across.  

I just showed my wife and she can’t believe it.

Maurice from Red Deer, AB sys

My son’s birthday was Thursday and I decided to give him the figure now instead of Christmas. He LOVES it. Said it was the best gift ever.

Thank you so much, you did a fantastic job!!!! Today we are having a family get together & Tyson can’t wait to show it off 🙂

-Crystal from North Rustico Prince Edward Island says

It’s the last thing he sees before he goes to bed, and the first thing he sees when he wakes up. He absolutely loves it! The look on my son’s face was something special.

-Peter from N.S. says

She loved it and so did the whole family! Feel free to put any pictures of it on your website.

Matt from Brandon,MB says

I can’t tell you enough how amazing his figure was.  Here’s a picture of the exact moment.  Thanks again, you do great work!









Peter S from Toronto, ON says

What a perfect gift to a great season, thanks so much!
Thea, Brandon, MB says

When she opened her figure, she’s couldn’t believe all the wonderful things you wrote on her player profile.  It was very moving, and we were so excited we forgot to take pictures and our son couldn’t believe that he had an action figure of himself just like his favourite NHL players!  Amazing work, thank you so much!!

Maurice from Montreal, Qc says

WOW! Thanks man, very  happy. don’t know if I can wait till Christmas. birthday even farther away … Thanks  ….Maurice ….. go Habs go

-Fred F from Montreal, QC says

Not just amazing work but to fly to Montreal and set up a fake new conference and contract signing just to add to the experience was something he’ll never forget.  You’re one of a kind Shane thank you so much.
