Stripsey was another eBay buy from Optimusleo. Wanting to build up the Seven Soldiers of Victory, I picked up him and Star Spangled Kid. I'm holding out in hopes of DC Collectibles making a Vigilante and Shining Knight. The Crimson Avenger is going to need to be a custom, I'm sure they're never making him.
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.
