Analog Toys

The Analog Toys YouTube channel reviews action figures from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s and tells the stories behind the toys.

Created and hosted by Tony Roberts, an avid toy collector from Australia, the channel showcases classic action figures and accessories from some of pop culture’s most memorable franchises. Roberts delights in sharing the toys of hit movie and television franchises such as The Six Million Dollar Man, Spider-Man, Action Man, Transformers, and many more. Through historical context, vintage commercials, and manufacturer backstories, Roberts weaves stories that give a deeper appreciation for action figures and their place in pop culture history.

Be sure to watch My Story, the episode in which Roberts introduces himself, his collection, and the path that led him to collecting.
