Welcome to the Action Figure Resource!

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.

Some collectors spend hours, months and even years recreating famous movie or TV scenes or building their own unique dioramas.

But if you can't find your particular passion, don't despair, you can always create your own.

One of the most unique and growing sections of the hobby is Action Figure Customizing, the art of creating new figures from old, using spare parts and old figures to create a unique and original figure of your own.

Whatever you're into or your preferences, whether you're new to the hobby or a veteran collector the Action Figure Resource is here to cater to YOUR needs.

My task here is simply to help you enjoy your hobby to the fullest and to make sure that you have all the information yo need to look after your prized possession.
