These superheroes were always our friends and they helped us through our childhoods. They taught us to share, to value friendships and that good will triumph over evil. Perhaps, most importantly, they stretched our imaginations and made us believe that anything was possible. These mighty action figures were invincible to everything but time. Time finally did them in. Or did it? For more and more people, these action figures are returning to superhero status. The Star Trek crew along with Power Rangers, the Star Wars characters and transformers are popping up in offices, dens and family rooms everywhere. These action figures have become collectibles.
Expanding Your Collection - When you collection starts looking paltry in your eyes it is time to expand your collection of action figures toys. You should replenish your collection every so often to have the status of a prime action figure collector. While expanding your collection keep an important thing in mind that quality always tops quantity. So first know what pieces you lack and which figures can enhance the beauty of your collection. Always have the best collection (yet affordable do not go over budget) and take care of them.
Before Collecting Be Clear About the Purpose - You need to narrow down the specific reason when it comes to collectible action figures. First you have to decide clearly whether you are doing this to make money or you are going to share your collection with a child? Or you just want to collect to have fun? Whatever the reasoning is you should determine how to proceed. For instance collecting action figures toys for money will entail more research than just collecting to present to your children to complete a set.
Now you are ready for your customizations. A product like Apoxie(r)Sculpt is key in making the customizations to your action figure. Apoxie®Sculpt comes in two parts that are kneaded together to form a compound that hardens and cures in about 24 hours. It is non-shrinking and non-toxic but while it is uncured it can dissolve easily in water. The Apoxie®Sculpt instructions claim that it can be worked on for up to three hours but it is recommended that you work with it only up to two hours for best results. Other products like Green Stuff Epoxy Magic Sculpt Epoxy Clay or Fixit Epoxy Clay may also be used. In any case be sure to use a two-part compound that air-dries and self-hardens not a compound that needs to be baked in an oven because baking will deform your action figure.
