Welcome to the Universe of Imagination!

Action Figure Universe, where the comparative mythology of Joseph Campbell meets pop culture & modern mass media memorabilia, is an interactive entertainment scrapbook & resource site, all about figures of action & adventure of the mythic past, present & future, as they appear in their various forms in human history, popular art & the ever-expanding collectible toy market.

For me, collecting, enjoying & studying action figures isn't just about childhood memories.  It's an important part of personal growth & self-actualization, as well as a fun way to remain creative & imaginative throughout life's amazing journey.

Many of the action characters (heroes & villains alike) you will find here were conceived for adults, while others were originally intended for a younger audience.  Bearing in mind that no one is ever too old to be young at heart, I bid you welcome to the Action Figure Universe.

While you're here, feel free to explore the boundless reaches of child-like wonder & imagination that have long inspired people of all ages to not just dream, but to do, create & of course, PLAY.  As you step beyond the threshold of the so-called "real world," take heart & remember...

"The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play."

New Retro Star Trek Title from Quintek

The Star Trek section of the site is still very much a work in progress, but this cool new video production from The Quintek Group really inspired me to get up and at it once again.

Other than the fact that this gorgeously rendered vid doesn't include a credit for Deforest Kelly (and the graphics at the beginning are much more reminiscent of the 24th century design sense depicted in Star Trek: The Next Generation), this has definitely got to be one of the coolest Trek tidbits to come down the pike in quite a little while now.

Or is that Captain Pike?  Bad Trekkie jokes aside, it's always great to see just how remarkably the original series holds up to this very day.  None too shabby for a show that first hit the air waves nearly half a century ago!
