Do you want to know how much your figures are worth?
Are you looking for checklists?
A friend of mine, who’s a big action figure collector, recently
had to move house and needed to sort out his collection.
His problem was that he had no idea what his figures were worth and how
he should protect them.
But luckily I had a stash of old magazines and price guides etc, so we
spent the best part of a week sorting through his entire collection cataloging,
grading and valuing them.
It was then that I realized how
little information there really is for the collector on pricing and cataloging
As a result I have spent the last three years putting together the most
comprehensive list of action figures ever compiled. This database is an almost
complete listing of every action figure produced from 1964-2010!
And now you can benefit from this database to catalog, grade and value your own collection.
Here you will find information on some of the most popular lines
of classic vintage action figures with information on their rarity, price, year
of manufacture and the manufacturer as well as image galleries.

Rock + Pop
While researching different figures and sets I was surprised at the number of vintage action figures there are based on pop singers or rock bands, such as this Cher figure dating back to 1976!
Of course many modern rock stars have been immortalized as an action figure also, such as...<read more>
Comic books :
Comic books and action figures are a perfect fit as each is only bound by the limits of your imagination. As with many innovative figures Mego were one of the first to release a host of comic book action figures with their "Worlds's Greatest Super Heroes" line which included characters from both DC and Marvel comics.
Since then literally thousands of our favorite Super Heroes, and their protagonists, have been made as action figures. Some of the most popular are the likes of Batman, Superman, Thor, The Hulk and the X-Men to name a few.
But the figures aren't just limited to Marvel and DC but also many Dark Horse, Top Cow, Comic Ink and other publishers have had their characters turned into action figures.
One of the most popular of these is probably the Spawn character, created and produced by Todd Mc Farlane of McFarlane Toy's, which he set up just for this.
