Today is yet another of Face Customs' figures, the last custom member that he did for me from the Outback team; the leader, Storm. Such a simple figure but fabulously executed. This is the best custom hair work of any of the figures of his that I own. Her head sculpt is perfect. He revised it from his original sculpt which favored Jennifer Hudson. I like J. Hud but she's no Storm. This IS Storm.
I have a lot of plans for the Captain Marvel Carol Danvers head that is in the latest Marvel Legends Avengers wave. One of three uses will be to make an alternate head for this figure to represent her look when Jim Lee took over art duties on Uncanny X-Men. I hope to have Face create Storm in her alternate Outback costume some time soon.
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.
