So what is an action figure to me?

An action figure is a toy which represents the fictional work I enjoy reading.  These toys allow me to have a 3d representation of my favorite characters and allow me to pose and display them.  They also give me a distraction to the stress of the day to day.  They also seem to take over any room they reside in.

    An action figure to me is: a keepsake, a momento of favorite or new characters from favorite or new comics or movies or tv shows. Eye candy. A source of visual entertainment when the sculpt, paint and articulation all come together beautifully. Fun. Coillectables that I can enjoy with my children and adults who share my enthusiasm for groups of figures in a well done family friendly theme. A physical representation of pop culture. Often fun. Too often expensive. Addictive. Sometimes in a good way (see fun). Sometimes in a bad way (see expensive).
