Welcome to the first and most incredible in a series of 3 custom figures created by our resident custom making genius Alan (onlinebuyer21).  These customs were commissioned by me, I gave Alan some art, the figure parts, and a prayer, and what he came back to me with was pure genius.

Quasar

Packaging

I’m a loose collector, I did not request packaging to be made.  Though, had he made it, I’m sure it would have been awesome.

Paint

The bread and butter of any custom, the paint.  Alan did an outstanding job capturing the deep space look of Quasar’s cape.  It’s worth noting here, this is the modern Quasar shown in comics in varying degrees of dark blue on the light side right up through black.  I went for the darker version as that is my preference.   
The chest logo is finely detailed, all of the lines are sharp and clean, the wrist bands are sharp and the gold highlighting is epic.

Articulation

Articulation is not really something I am concerned with in a custom, of all my figures these will be touched and moved the absolute least, and generally that’s not at all anyway.  The custom is built off of unequal parts Steve Rogers (head) and Sentry (two-pack) (body / cape).

Character Likeness

Alan absolutely nailed the likeness of Quasar (modern) here and darker tones (as requested).

Accessories

Quasar doesn’t have any accessories, but I’ll mention the cape again because it’s gorgeous.

Overall

This custom is brilliant, one of my favorite ever.  Stop reading this, go look at the gallery!

Displayed front and center – Perfect score (1,000,000 out of 5)


 

Rating System: Each figure will be reviewed under the following categories:

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.
