Action Figure Collector website is under construction.


Due to lack of support for Koken CMS and ever growing number of errors and other problems I've decided to switch to ZenPhoto.

Transition period will take a few months as I reupload photos, import blog posts and fix relevant links. Meanwhile, photos from the old website, that were featured elsewhere (forums, blogs etc) are still avaiable to make transitional period easier.

Some dreams seem outrageous - cancelled DC TV-shows don't get figures! - but this one did!
John Constantine is a beloved character and his portrayal by Matt Ryan is exceptional - he is perfect.

SooSoo toys did this character justice - preorder was a no-brainer for me.
I already own another Constantine - Keanu Reeves version from 2005 film, so there will be joint photosets and other supernatural fun in stock for them.

If there's no Loki in your collection - no girl will ever come over to "take a look". In all seriousness, "Do you have a Loki figure?" is the most asked question upon learning about my hobbie.

So now, yes, I do have a Loki in my collection.
I've preordered "Dark World" version, as a) first version is being sold for too much money b) trust my rage! c) I really liked his expression and wanted to have a man, not a boy displayed.

He is sharing a shelf with Harlock, as their capes compliment each other nicelly.

Captain Harlock is one of my childhood heroes, so there was no question about buying him.

I bought version without his Arcadia throne, since I had no extra $250 to throw away and had no place to display this monstrosity. Now though, as I look upon Harlcok and Loki, I think that I need this throne, as at least one of them would love it. 

Harlock was preordered, and got to me on 26.09.2014
