A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 73 - Speed Buggy Tinker by Psyguy
Today is the Shaggy of the Speed Buggy Gang, Tinker. Speed Buggy is the Johnny Lightning release. The scale is slightly off for Minimates but I have an artist working on Hot Wheels scale vehicles for all of the Hanna Barbera groups so although they can't sit in them, the groups will be complete.
Tinker's hair and goggles are sculpted from scratch. Psyguy once again nailed it. I'm going to continue to say that. A lot. Because he did! The Hanna Barbera minimates are truly the greatest custom set of toys that I own. Period.

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.
