A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 70 - Josie & the Pussycats Alan by Psyguy
Today is the last member of the Josie Gang, Alan. Hanna Barbera likes to give their leading men broad, bulky chests which is a tough aspect to translate in to a Minimate. The perfect toy. Hey, you can't have it all. The bulkier chest piece wouldn't translate well to Alan, it's too much besides the bulky chest wouldn't work with his ascot. This is still a great representation of Alan. I changed his hair from what he originally came with. When we designed him we initially used the Marvel Secret Wars Beyonder hairpiece that Valerie uses painted yellow. He now uses an extra Steve Rogers hairpiece.

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.
