Today is one of the first Minimates in a long line of custom pieces that the fabulous Psyguy created for me. I have a thing for redheads. Josie, Daphne, Jean Grey, I love them all. This costume has appeared in the Marvel Legends & Marvel Select lines as action figures but neither capture the looks of the character as well as this custom does, she's perfect! Diamond Select Toys has yet to make Jean in this costume in the official Minimate line and I thought the recipe of Mandarin's mask suited her perfectly.
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.
