Collecting Action Figures is a unique and diverse hobby with many different elements that appeal to the young and old alike. It's more than a hobby, it's a passion.
Nothing can describe the joy or pleasure in finding an old figure from your childhood after years of hunting Comic-cons, garage sales and the internet and the long lost but fond memories those moments can bring back to life.
Then there's the pleasure and joy that comes from simply displaying them like treasured pieces of art, which they are of course, in their own way.
With a huge range of action figures available from comic book characters to military, Disney to video games, baseball to ice hockey, wrestling to fantasy, movies to TV series and even the surreal there is something for every taste.
But it can also be frustrating and fraught with pit holes because
of the lack of accurate and trustworthy information available, and its increased popularity
has meant it is more important than ever to know exactly what is available,
when it was released and how rare they are, or aren’t!
My aim here is simple, and that is to provide you all the resources, information and tools you need to collect, buy, grade, value and catalog your figures as expertly and professionally as you can.
