Kids love action figures, and so do collectors. They are some of the best role-playing toys around to feed the incredible power of your child's imagination. Who doesn't want to protect the universe from evil emperors, or step into an imaginary land with an action figure set? JCPenney has the best action figures from the biggest names, like Disney, Mattel, and many more.
One of the most argued issues among collectors is what characteristics an action figure has. Every collector has had someone call their action figures dolls, but an action figure must be posable, with movable parts. They often come with interchangeable accessories like tools and weapons and are usually made of molded plastic. Character action figures come in all shapes and sizes and are typically based on popular books and movies. Adventure action figures and collectible Disney favorites from JCPenney are a wonderful way to nurture your child's creativity or to start your collection.
Collecting action figures is a fun and rewarding hobby. If you're an adult, browsing the selection of action figures at JCPenney is sure to make you feel like a kid again. Displaying your action figure collection is a terrific way to celebrate your love of a favorite movie, comic book or TV show. The absolute best action figures featuring all your favorite characters are found right here at JCPenney. If you choose your action figure collection carefully, it just might end up as an excellent financial investment.
Just as important as the thought you put into purchasing your action figure collection is how you show your figures. A lighted display case from JCPenney is ideal for displaying your action figures, or an attractive bookshelf from JCPenney's furniture department adds a sophisticated touch to your presentation. Your kids are going to want to play with their action figures, so display them "loose," which means right out of the box. If you're an adult collector, consider showing your action figure collection "mint," or brand-new, in the original packaging. Just make sure to display them away from direct sunlight and dust them often.
Since Hasbro made the first G.I. Joe action figure in the 1960s, their appeal has spread to so many collectors, they're not just for kids anymore. Action figures make great gifts, and are perfect for hours of fun and inspired play. Some action figures are perfect for memorabilia and are beautiful works of art for displaying. You and your kids can collect them all and have fun trading action figures with your friends. Find all your favorite action figures for exhibition or play at JCPenney.
