Donna was another random piece that I commissioned from Psyguy five years ago in an attempt to build a set of New Teen Titans minimates. I was still trying figure how to best utilize his craftsmanship to boost my collection. He had already worked on several Marvel minimates characters for me so Donna seemed logical to bolster the Titans roster. I had her made based on the recipe Luke Porter's used for his original Titans custom made 4 pack.
Donna Troy is the one character that always gets left out. She was omitted from the Teen Titans Go cartoon and never made it on screen for Young Justice and from DC's line of minimates. Although her history has been destroyed over the years, she is one of my favorite Titans. I still need a Changelling & Kid Flash to finish the team but at least I got the ladies out of the way first.
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.
