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."

Quick Draw Johnny West Rides Into Town

The Quick Draw Johnny West page of my Marx Western Series section is finally up and running.  I will almost certainly have to make some changes and add a few updates at some point in the near future, but for now I'm mostly pleased with the page.

Quick Draw Johnny West was by far, one of my absolute favorite toys as a kid, so I certainly hope I've done him justice.  I'm already thinking of a whole lot more I should add to the page, and the whole section, really, so here's to the future of the good Old West.  Marx Toys style, that is.

Click the link below to gallop on over to the Quick Draw Johnny West section, and do it right pronto, partner!  Giddyup!
