Collecting Action Figures - What`s Behind This Modern Day Craze. Remember when you were a kid and your mom dad uncle aunt or grandparent would take you to the toy store or some other leading big-box department store. As you rush towards the action figure aisle your heart speeding in fervour as you make your means to this supernatural toy of imaginativeness. Now a lot of men still might purchase an action figure or two sporadically. Action figures today have become so detailed so artistic and so coveted. These so-called "toys" remind us of our freewheeling youth. I personally have purchased around 16 action figures in the past year.
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.
Tips For Maintaining Action Figure Toys. Buying collectible action figures is a long process as you need to think which figures to choose and which to ignore. You make an extensive search online and offline before making a decision. It`s a stressful process. Well your job is not done yet after buying the figures you also need to take proper care of them so that you can gladly show them to your friends. You need to maintain your action figures toys always and for that here are some useful tips.
One or More of the Same Statue? - Many collectors like a particular series very much and they buy two units of the same statue - one to play and one to store. The collectible action figures should be preserved carefully. The bust should not be taken "off the card" (cardboard backing). When you separate the toy from its packing you actually devalue the figure a bit. However also when you store packed action figures toys it takes more space and thus not much room is left for the display. So buying one or more units of the same figure is totally up to the collector.
