But sometimes that lack of exactly what I want leads to innovation. Case in point, this Playmobil custom I cobbled together inspired by that incredibly ridiculous nineties comic creation: Warrior Nun Areala.
Regardless, I didn't really need a Nun, but I figured since it had been so long since I had copped a feel on the Playmobil blind bags that I might as well see if I can find one. Because: Nun. If nothing else I could stick a geisha head on her to make Sister Mary Harley of the Eternal Order of Chaos or something.
Then I got her home and it dawned on me: Warrior Nun! I have plenty of Knight components in my Playmobil bag, so a Warrior Nun is a unique and easy custom to cobble together. I added some armored Knight legs, a couple wrist guards reminiscent of Areala's leather and metal gloves, a sword, a belt/scabbard, and a chainmail headpiece. Then I gave her a sweet sword and a mean shield (which still needs a cross decal or painted on or something.)
THEN I remembered the Playmobil Angel from Series 4 that I picked up a few months back. Every good Knight needs a Squire, right?

Oh yeah, and Battle Angel is cool too!
