Toy Biz did a great job of gong deep in to the obscure rosters of the Marvel Universe but there are two problems they couldn't overcome; the fact that female figures don't sell well to the masses and the idea that Todd McFarlane was reinventing action figure collecting with his static posed, inferior plastic 6 inch figure "statues". The Spawn line helped kill the 5 inch format and ushered in the age of hyper detail and articulation.
The Generation X line was on the cusp of that transition. Toy Biz released all but the last two female members of the core team. A two up was sculpted of Husk as she and M were going to anchor the third wave of the line along with Hemmingway and Ever with his pack in, Sack.
I decided to finish all of the 90's X-teams by making customs. Although Jubilee was released in the first wave, her pose was crazy. I used a Robot Fighters Jubilee with an official Gen X Jubilee coat to craft a more appropriate version.
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.
