A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 9 - 12 inch Marvel Universe Thunderbolts Atlas by 4:F
Atlas is one of five members of the original Thunderbolts that I did back in the late 90's. He stands 12 inches tall and could go with Marvel Legends or Marvel Universe scales but since I've only done his team mates in the 5 inch scale, he's stays with my Toy Biz collection.
He uses a 12 inch Jim Lee WildC.A.T.S. Spartan figure as his base with gauntlets borrowed from his teammate Maul. The 'A' is sculpted on his chest and has cracked over the years. Eventually I'll get around to fixing him.
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.
