Even as an adult, there's still something magical to me about having three-dimensional art of my favorite characters. Many people prefer statues, but action figures are still the go-to format for me. They're (usually) cheaper, it's easier to get characters in the same scale, you can set up your own scenes (group shots or battles), and they're mad helpful for art reference. Really, wanting figures in the same scale is part of what drove me to make so many sprites of game characters in mostly one style. My favorite scale is still 1/18th, a.k.a. classic Star Wars/G.I.JOE ARAH/Micronauts scale, but I fell back into Marvel Legends (thanks to Hasbro's Onslaught wave) and more 1/12th scale product a few years ago, too.
This small corner of the site hasn't just been recoded, but reactivated. No, I'm not clocking the kind of Scrooge McBucks to get the high-end figures (yet), but I've managed to get a few things here and there, as well as finally finishing some Marvel action game crews in Marvel Legends and/or the smaller Marvel Universe figures. I'm also getting fodder and supplies together to start customizing again.
