TV, Movie & Video Game Action Figures

A staple of childhood is the doll, and kids love the characters they see in their favorite movies, shows, and books as they want to be them. So, to vicariously live through these over-the-top personas, children use figures and dolls as toys to play pretend, but the obsession with figures does not always stop there. Many adults collect them as a form of memorabilia, and sometimes, these action figures portray characters from more mature forms of fiction.

What is the history behind the action figure?

Hasbro is the pioneer of the action figure, both in design and in etymology. They initially created G.I. Joe in order to market a doll that can be sold to boys. A multitude of other companies tried their hands at creating original characters for action figures, but not at the magnitude of attention that G.I. Joe received. In the early '70s, comic book companies Marvel and DC started licensing their superheroes to Mego for the first action figures to be made from outside content.
