I hope to one day own a complete 70's Defenders roster in plastic for in at least one scale. Minimates have attempted, Toy Biz tried with their 5 inch line and Marvel Universe finally made this guy but it one toyline has released all of the members of the Defenders in one scale. Hellcat being released for the first tom as an official figure in the Marvel Legends line has me leaning towards completing them in the 6 inch scale but long before this I only had the Toy Biz line. I made a haphazard Moondragon, a decent Hellcat and this Nighthawk. He is made from an Ultra Force Prome cape and a Iron Man Whiplash figure.
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.
