I was so excited when Toy Biz announced Phoenix for the 5 inch Marvel line. That excitement died when she was released. They decided her power feature should be a light up forehead with translucent hair and eyes. That didn't do so I repainted her to make her accurate.
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.
