Lin-Z is one of several Jem custom dolls that I purchased from Jemgirl out of Australia. She dies perfect renditions that tie in flawlessly with the vintage Jem line. I'm not a fan of the new line of Jem dolls. The Misfits & The Stingers look great but Jem, The Holograms and their friends all look too bitchy for my taste. The vintage line gave them a softer more toyetic look. I like that Jemgirl's customs compliment that so well.
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.
