A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 10 - DC Universe Classics Titans West Bumblebee figure by Optimusleo
Day 10 is a 6 inch scale Teen Titans Bumblebee figure by Optimusleo. I own several pieces made by Optimusleo, I believe only one is an actual commission the rest were won on eBay. This figure uses a Marvel Legends Wasp as the base figure. When I received her the wings were still the cream color that they were for Wasp so I repainted them blue to match Karen's comic look. She helps round out my Titans West collection.
A Custom A Day....
I began toy collecting as a hobby back in 1990 I have always had a
need for custom figures. Toy companies begin action figure lines, begin
to release individual characters to create teams and, more often than
not leave them incomplete. Many collectors find that custom figures
pollute their collection's authenticity by not being mass produced
creations from the toy companies that created the preexisting toy lines.
I disagree. I feel a quality custom action figure enhances a
collection and help create a complete picture.
