I loved the diversity of the Minimate Days of Future Past comic pack. Got a few extra characters out of the parts they supplied beyond what they provided. It didn't hurt that Action Figure Express clearanced them at the end of last year so I was able to pick up three boxes. I'm able to display Senator Kelly transforming in to Raven. I consider it a custom since his suit body wasn't provided. I love the transitioning head on her body. Diamond Select Toys is doing things don other toy company will try. Minimates; the perfect toy.
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.
