A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 242 - Muir Island X-Men Polaris by 4:F
I stole the idea for this team from Marvelous Minimates over on Instagram. The versatility of Minimates lends themselves to a ton of quick customs that simply require part swapping to create entirely new characters. I love Minimates most for this reason. Polaris uses a She Hulk hairpiece with a Polaris head. The bodies are from the New Mutants. I want to build a comprehensive X-Men team with custom Marvel Legends but I think Minimates is definitely the more cost effective way to make that happen.

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.
