February's Tip for New Collectors

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 11:10:17 +00002014-02-28T11:10:17Z

Modern action figures are all about the articulation. There are dozens of joints in most figures these days, but collectors rarely take full advantage of them when putting figures on display. All too often I see static figures standing straight up, with little regard for realistic body language or life-like stances. That's why this month's tip is a big one!

January's Tip for New Collectors

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 22:50:21 +00002014-01-31T22:50:21Z

Spring is still a few months away, but this month's tip is all about cleaning anyway! Your figures are probably dustier than you realize, so don't ignore this one.

January's Tip: Dust your figures! If you're like most collectors, you have layers upon layers of figures in displays, but rarely ever dust them.
