By Corey Tincher:
I still fondly remember the excitement of ripping open a new toy when I was a kid. There was nothing like that odd smell of plastic and the imagination it could suddenly stir. Most people lose the joys of their childhood somewhere along the way, but every time I open an action figure, even today, that sensation returns. I'm so glad I haven't lost that joy over the years. I hope to bring that same feeling of childhood freedom and excitement to other collectors, whether new or old.
The world of action figures is a surprisingly complex one, and sometimes we need a guide to get through the process of collecting. I've purchased a lot of figures throughout the years, and developed an eye for what makes them great. I want to pass that knowledge and experience on to my readers with reviews, spotlights, and resources to help them make sense of all the amazing action figures out there.
