A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 58 - DC Direct Lana Lang Insect Queen by 37 Customs
Today is the first of my female Legionaires, Insect Queen. She was never more than a reserve member of the team but I love her design and wanted a figure of her since I got the treasury sized comic that I had back in the late 70's. Mattel did a great job making the boys of the Legion, but as usual left out the ladies. I had to turn to a few customizers to get them done.
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.
