The Justice League Unlimited toy line found itself on life support several times before it eventually ended. I purchased this Giganta figure during one of those periods. Although she was eventually released as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, I didn't think she would see release so I purchased this one on eBay long before the two pack was made. She's another case of me purchasing a custom that would eventually see an official release. I don't mind having the extra since I keep the SDCC exclusive in its package as part of my Legion of Doom display. At this point I wouldn't open after hearing all of the stories of how the plastic used for her dress has deteriorated over the years, luckily this one is fully sculpted. This figures allows me to display & photograph her with the rest of the team. I like that the artist that created her used yellow instead of gold. I'm not a fan of gold on figures. The yellow is more traditional to comics and animation. She uses a second edition Wonder Woman as a base.
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.
