A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 317 - Toy Biz 5 inch Rachel Summers Phoenix by 4:F
Rachel uses one of the few viable female bodies in the Toy Biz 5 inch lines, Mystique. She has small globs of Sculpey on her. Her head is from aCadillacs & Dinosaurs Hanna Dundee figure. The rest is paint. I was glad to not have to paint her face.
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.
