Miri was an opportunity purchase on eBay. A seller was clearing out a bulk of Rainbow Lantern custom figures. She was high profile enough in the Blackest Night story to earn a space on the shelf although she wasn't a character I'd have sought out otherwise. Affordable and available.
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.
