AwesomeToyBlog’s Holiday Gift Guide – Day 9 – the loose figure collector

Now that the holiday season is upon us, it’s time to pick up gifts for your favorite people. But, from time to time, your favorite geek/nerd/toy collector can sometimes pose a bit of a challenge. To help you out, I’ve put together the AwesomeToyBlog holiday gift guide. Ten products, each addressing a niche in the fandom, one each day. Up today is the perfect gift if you have an action figure collector in your life who opens their toys.
One of the more frustrating parts of being a 3 3/4″ action figure collector (think Marvel Universe, Star Wars, GI Joe) is keeping your collection standing up and stable.  Since the toys are pretty small, it doesn’t take much to knock them down.  One of the things I like about Marvel Universe figures is that each carded figure includes a stand; unfortunately comic packs, or team packs don’t include stands for the figures.  Nor do Star Wars figures, or most of the Marvel movie figures.  Fortunately Entertainment Earth offers a variety of stands, and they’re one of my favorite products that they carry (seriously, I have 100+ of these stands around my office and I’ve raved about them on twitter).  They fit modern Star Wars and Marvel Universe figures perfectly, and Marvel movie figures well (except for Red Skull, his foot hole is too big).  At just $10 for 25 stands, the price can’t be beat.  You have your choice of clear, black, white or grey.  These make a perfect stocking stuffer!

  1. Whoa, good idea. My son has a mess of figures on display in his bedroom. I was initially looking for more of a guide to action figures and gifts http://www.popfunk.com/blog/view/figures-and-gifts/ <— like this one, but this might be even better for him this year. Not sure if he'll feel the same, but these stands are way more practical at this point. Thanks for tip!
