A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

Toy News International

Action-figure hobbyists and collectors looking for a way to stay abreast of this ever-evolving pastime will love the Toy News International website.

Since Hasbro’s G.I Joe first hit shelves in the mid-1960s, action figures have evolved from childhood playtime to adult obsession. Driven by comic, movie, and television franchises, the business of figurines is big – over a billion dollars. Major manufacturers all vie for a piece of the pie, including Kenner, Mego, LEGO, Mattel, and others. A significant portion of the industry is attributed to adult hobbyist and collectors – the audience that Toy News International caters to.

The website creates anticipation for upcoming product releases with detailed examinations of featured figures and their functionality, helping collectors determine what to add to a collection. Hobbyists who take a hands-on interest in figurine design will appreciate the gallery of custom work submitted by fellow readers.

New visitors to Toy News International may be surprised at how much there is to see and learn. Toy News International makes it easy to become enamored with figure collecting and to appreciate the artistic merit of custom creations.

Discover books, magazines, podcasts, and blogs that celebrate toy history, pop culture, and collecting.
