A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 274 - The New Mutants Magma Minimate by 4:F
Diamond Select Toys has built some complete, impressive teams in their decade plus of producing Marvel Minimates. They completed the original New Mutants roster with a pair of Toys R Us exclusives. Magma was done in a cool translucent plastic to mimic her flaming body but the hair missed the mark on accuracy. I switched it out for a Human Torch translucent head piece and it helped complete her look. I love the easy compatibility of the parts, they are truly the best, most diverse toy line ever produced. One simple block figure design had produced hundreds of characters I love.

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.
