Action figures are popular among boys and girls as well as adult collectors. Whether consumers play with their action figures or leave them packaged in mint condition for their collection, action figures provide pleasant reminders of childhood or of favourite characters, personalities, comic books, movies, or television shows. Consumers should consider their favourite characters, shows, and comics when deciding which action figures to purchase. Collectors can recreate their favourite episodes, battles, or events or proudly display their collection. Opt for vintage action figures to bring back fond childhood memories or purchase brand new contemporary figures.

Marvel action figures include all those popular superheroes and villains from the Marvel Universe comic books, cartoons, and movies. Older, retro models are incredibly popular with collectors and those still packaged in mint condition can fetch a large price. Contemporary Marvel action figures all have appropriate accessories, such as a burglar webbed to a wall base for Spiderman, or a goblet, a pistol, a throne, and banners for Dr Doom. Pit superheroes against one another or against super villains in epic battles to save the world.


8 Doctor Who Action Figures

Doctor Who is the most popular British science fiction of all time, spanning more than 50 years. The Doctor regenerates instead of dying, but each time, he has a new face.

For collectors, a complete Doctor Who action figure box set is available, with figures of every different Doctor to date. Every Doctor Who fan knows that the Doctor is at his best when he has a plucky companion by his side, so shoppers should add the Doctor's companions to their collection, such as Sarah Jane Smith, Rose Tyler, Amy Pond, Donna Noble, or the ever-popular K-9.
