This is the mother lode of Custom Week.  Below we look at an expertly created full team of the Guardians Of The Galaxy from eBay custom maker cruzazul08 .  Being that this is a massive team, I’m going to let the images do most of the talking and discuss all the figures at once below rather than giving a specific section to each figure.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy – Bug, Mantis, Captain Universe, Gamora, Moondragon, Jack Flag, Adam Warlock

Packaging

This set of figures did not come in a box / on a card.

Paint

Through the team paint was consistent.  The colors match the existing Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy team set perfectly.  You really can’t tell the difference between the uniform on Star-Lord and the uniform on Mantis.  The green skin of Gamora matches the existing Drax green and all paint is even and finely detailed.  The uniform lines and molding all looks amazing here across all figures

Articulation

These figures will not be touched but all figures have the articulation and range of motion of some of the better Universe main line figures.

Character Likeness

The treatment and attention to detail from Warlock to Mantis and Bug is incredible.  Gamora was replicated perfectly down to the skull belt buckle.  Even Jack Flag’s hair is a tri-colored spot on tribute to the original.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accessories

Gamora has a well color-matched felt cape, otherwise these Guardians don’t have accessories.

Overall

I know I was brief with the description and review details above and that was intentional.  I wanted you to get here quickly because the images tell this incredible story better than I could ever put pen to paper over.  My only complaint with this team of incredible customs is the fact that it still leaves my Guardians roster incomplete.  We still need Cosmo, Hollywood, and Martyr / Phyla-Vell.  Otherwise, my cosmic Marvel obsession has been well sated with this team set.  Cruzazul08 doesn’t have much up now because I think I may have cleaned him out, but look for great things from him in the future!!  Stop reading! Go check out the image hotness!

Grade

Displayed front and center – Perfect score (5 out of 5)


Rating System: Each figure will be reviewed under the following categories:
Packaging
Paint
Articulation
Accessories
Character Likeness
Overall: Each figure will then be given an overall grade out of 5 levels:
Displayed front and center – Perfect score
Displayed but more to the side – Second best, nothing wrong with that
Displayed somewhere I might see it – Displayed, it’s good, I like it, not as much as others.
Displayed but buried in the back – Not all that great, but no other options for this figure
Stored* – It’s really not worth displaying. 
*This will be caveat-ed, if the figure is excellent but is being moved out in favor of a better version of the same character, this will be explained.
