A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 21 - Marvel Legends Armored Psylocke by Face Customs
When I purchased what I call Poofy Betsy on eBay I found a group shot of Face Customs' Marvel Legends Outback team. I contacted him to find out which team members were available. I purchased Armored Psylocke & an Outback Colossus. He captured this costume perfectly. She maintains all of her articulation. Her metallic finish perfectly finished the figure. It's a simple design but the a fitting good is hard to come by.
She appears to use a Superwoman head and hood. She doesn't have sculpted hair. I have yet to see a customizer effectively execute this version of Betsy with hair. It looks odd hanging out from underneath the hood. I added another of Shinobitron's hot glue butterflies to complete her look. She is one of my favorite customs.
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.
