Marco Banderas Gets Molded

CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Topco Sales has begun producing a replica of Marco Banderas, a nominee for the AVN Awards' "Male Performer of the Year," for its Wildfire Celebrity Series.


Autumn O'Bryan, Topco's director of product development, said the company is excited about the replica.


"The Latin heartthrob, his amazing libido and all his film credits make him a perfect candidate for toys," she said.


Banderas said he began discussing the project with Topco in October.


"I've been interested in having an adult toy molded from me since I entered the X-rated-video business," he said. "I asked Lexington Steel for a recommendation, and he said Topco did an excellent job on his Lexcalibur dildo and vibrator. I can't wait for my toy to hit store shelves."


Director of Marketing Desiree Duffie explained the process of the molding, which took place in late December.


"As for the actual molding process ... essentially, we mix the batter together, make sure the man is ‘up for the occasion' and then slather it on," she said. "He needs to stay erect for a certain period of time, and then we mold directly from that. The pieces are all hand painted and made out of a variety of materials, such as our well-known Cyber Skin."


The Marco Banderas toy will be released early this summer.


"We are expanding the entire series to include all types of different [adult] stars," Duffie said. "Marco represents diversity and is so incredibly prolific. [He] and his wife, Lisa, have done so much for this industry. We're really excited to have them be part of this."
