Duane in Calif. gets a piece of the action (figures)

by  in Comic News Comment

Duane in Orange County, Calif. is a man of action — action figures, that is.

“I have always had toys, but growing up I couldn’t have nearly as much as I wanted,” he said. “… Now, when I want something, I seek it out furiously. Unfortunately, as I get older the collectibles that I want get more and more expensive.”

Check out his collection of action figures — Power Rangers, Doctor Who, DC Comics, Avengers and more — below.

At 31, I am a relatively young collector. I have always had toys, but growing up I couldn’t have nearly as much as I wanted. My collection size has ebbed and waned, but after college when I made the mistake of selling collectibles it is only growing. Now, when I want something, I seek it out furiously. Unfortunately, as I get older the collectibles that I want get more and more expensive.

My tastes are pretty eclectic in what I collect, but I seem to go mostly for action figures. When it comes to exactly what I collect, it is not limited to just comics. I collect some random items like Doctor Who and Power Rangers figures.



The majority of what I do collect is related to comic books, but when it comes to action figures I am pretty picky. I am particular about sculpt and build and even what accessories are included. While I still collect the 6 inch figures, I am slowly graduating to the sixth scale action figures (unfortunately, in my submission, I am leaving out my 20+ Star Wars 12 inch figures from Sideshow Collectibles).
