Today is another of my Teen Titans figures, Golden Eagle. He uses a DC Direct 1st Appearance Hawkman figure. This figure worked best because his hawk helmet sits above his head and exposes his entire face. I made him this weekend after having him sit in my Titans display unfinished for almost 10 years. More sculpting woes, his hair is a very amateur looking but with his large wings he stands in the back of my display so it will hard to tell. Other than sculpting some hair, all I did was paint his wings a light orange. It captures Charlie well me thinks and helps to fill out the ranks of the Titans West.
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.
