Are You a Frustrated Action Figure Collector?

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.

With a manually collated database of more than 40,000+ action figures produced from 1964-2010 at my fingers tips The AFR guides and checklists take an in-depth look at each line manufactured with information on their release dates, exclusives, rarities, variations, accessories, prototypes, galleries and more!

Not only that but I’ll also show you how to clean, store and protect them with the step by step Survivors Guide to Collecting Action Figures!

Not Sure What to Collect?

If you're new to collecting one of the most daunting decisions is try to decide WHAT you want to collect.

After all you only have a certain amount of money to commit to your hobby and you want to make it stretch as far as you can to get as many action figures as you can.

Not only that but once you've decided you'll make it easier for friends and family to buy them for you!! [ READ MORE... ]
