A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 37 - Marvel Legends Lorna Dane as Malice by Wings Customs
Today is the beginning of my Marvel Legends Marauders collection. Lorna Dane as Malice was created by Wings Customs over in the UK. His mate Face Customs made the majority of my Outback X-Men so I found it fitting for Wings to take on their rivals, The Marauders.
What I enjoy most about Wings' work is that he has a unique style in that he uses craft foam to form hair. When he made Lorna I asked him to be sure that she would have foam hair so that I could have it represented in my collection. I'm very happy with the way she turned out and excited for Wings to finish the team.
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.
