What Is an Action Figure?
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.
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.
