You can take the boy away from the toy, but you cannot take the toy away from the boy. It doesn’t matter if you’re 8 or 18, or 13 or 30, boys will always be boys, and they will always have their toys.
Kids are fascinated about action figures. They start off from tiny plastic soldiers then they move on to more complex figures with poseable parts, removable weapons and items. These characters fly and fight and engage each other in the timeless struggle between good and evil. Complete with sound effects. But it is an amazing phenomena to see grown men fawning over the same toys and trinkets that they use to fling and throw around when they were just little kids. Collectible toys and figurines have now etched a very special niche in the market. With figures ranging from a simple P500 toy to a towering P15,000 character, these big boys will ravage the store stands and their wallets to look for their prized heroes and villains to add to their collection.
From die-cast metal Darth Vader figurines to acrylic Iron Man poseable action figures, these sought after collectibles have earned a unique following especially due to the rise in their multi-media counterparts such as movies and video games. There is no telling how high the values of collectible figures can go. There are even hand-painted and hand-sculpted figures that go up in price to even P20,000 or P30,000!
Another rage among the big boys are comics and graphic novels. With the extensive volume of book shops like Powerbooks and Fully Booked dotting the metro, the ease of access and availability of graphic novels has been on the rise. Especially following the current revamp of giants Marvel Comics and DC Comics, comic lovers have found new reason to shop for their favorite titles.
