A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 43 - Marvel Universe Uncanny X-Force Psylocke by 4:F
More Psylocke because you can never have enough Betsy. This was a simple but effective repaint I did. Hasbro did a terrible job making Psylocke for the Marvel Universe line. They reused Dark Phoenix to make an Asian ninja!?!? Anyhow, it is what it is so I made lemonade. Since the figure was a pretty poor representation of Psylocke, the figures sat on store shelves for months. Knowing that this limits the chance of seeing the character later on in the line I rounded out my Uncanny X-Force team on my own. When they wound up on clearance I picked up an extra for the extra weapons. Her psychic knife works perfectly with the Marvel Legends scale. Now Hasbro just needs to give me a Fantomex!
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.
