A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 292 - Toy Biz 5 inch Age Of Apocalypse Storm by 4:F
The Age of Apocalypse is one of my top five favorite X-Men storylines. It was so clean and complete, unfortunately Marvel tried to capitalize on the success of the story by integrating elements of it in to the current for the time continuity and it didn't work. I used a few of the common recipes used to make a couple of customs of some of the missing X-Men.
Storm uses a Robot Fighters Jean Grey head, with a Lady Deathstrike torso & sash and a Water Wars Storm arms and lower body. She's glued so she doesn't move but she is pretty accurate to the comic. I'd love to round out the teams in either the Toy Biz scale or the Minimates scale since they managed to make Mr Sinister which was canceled in this scale by Toy Biz.
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.
