I hate Diamond Select Toys. They are doing such a great job a covering the X universe that I hate to have customs made of the characters I need to fill in my teams. Marvel Minimates are doing well and show no sign of stopping any time soon Fortunately this was a quick custom that required no paint, decals, sculpting or additional purchases to achieve. She uses a New X-Men Jean Grey head and hair piece, an original jacketless Rogue body and her cape, sonic scream and flight stand come from the recently released wave 60 Banshee. I'm certain DST will release an official Siryn at some point but this fills in the gap in the meantime.
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.
