A Custom A Day.... 365 Days of Custom Figures Day 2 - DC Direct Holly Granger Hawk by Optimusleo
Day 2 is a DC Direct Holly Granger as Hawk figure. DC Direct did a terrible job deciding on the scale for their Brightest Day line. The characters produced were boxy and bulky and came in at nearly 7 inches tall whereas their previous offerings averaged 6 inches in height. Hank Hall was produced as the Hawk figure and Dawn Granger as Dove. Mattel later released Hawk & Dove as well but unfortunately they too chose Dawn & Hank leaving Holly and Don Hall without figures. Optimusleo listed this figure on eBay. The auction ended without any bids, I came across it afterwards and purchased her from him directly. I wasn't seeking out this version of Hawk but since she was affordable, well done and in scale with the DC Direct Dove I decide to add her to my collection. Both she and Dawn are displayed with my Birds of Prey collection on my Batman shelf.

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.
