I know that Namor was done twice in Marvel Legends but this version was an exclusive so rather than pay scalper prices I decided to go with a less expensive custom. Once Hellcat was released I knew I needed to start building the Defenders. I'm not sure that I'll ever get the roster I want in any scale. The Marvel Infinte/Universe lines have made a good dent but with the slow sales of the Legends scale Hellcat I doubt we'll be seeing her in the 4 inch scale anytime soon. She has yet to appear as a Minimate either although I think she's a more likely candidate for that at some point in the future. Diamond Select Toys has done a great job of peppering 70's characters throughout their 11 year run of Minimates and it shows no signs of slowing.
Moondragon & Gargoyle are my two biggest Defenders wants after Hellcat & Nighthawk. With Namor, Hulk, Valkyrie & Hellcat I have a good start to a Legends scale Defenders team. We'll get there, eventually.
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.
