Dragonfly Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:6171  
Name:Dragonfly
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Original
Creator:princebrent  
Date Added:February 13, 2008
Base Figure:HML Quicksilver
Height:6.00 inches
The base is a HML Quicksilver with a LCBH Star head that was graciously donated by Buzzy Fret (Thanks!!). The wings are from a Wasp and were probably the hardest parts to gather for this custom. The "tail" was actually the "chain" portion of an anchor from the Rescue Heroes aircraft carrier that I'm using for the S.H.I.E.L.D. heli-carrier. I figured a heli-carrier probably wouldn't need an anchor, so I put it to other uses!

This character is an original idea and design of my own. He is the leader of a group of heroes that call themselves "The Crusaders". Originally he was from Albania because at the time I devised these characters, Albania's flag was purple. It isn't anymore, but I really liked the colour scheme so I kept it anyway.

I have made one of his teammates, Osprey, as well but I used a DCD figure and I'm not happy with the articulation so he will be re-done.

Thanks Buzzy. The chest design sort of came about by accident. I was trying to make the tail part of the emblem all straight while painting the purple but I coughed in the middle of a paint stroke and got that indentation look. Rather than repaint the entire emblem I decided to try and make it look like it was meant to be there! I think it turned out pretty good for not being my original intention.
