Action figure collecting is alive and well in Durban, and if you collect action figures too, you are not alone!
I'm a fully fledged Toy Nerd, and proud of it.
I live in Durban, and I've collected action figures for over 10 years now, and I've always been frustrated with the unavailability of my favorite action figure ranges in South African toy stores.
In fact I became so fed-up with the situation, that I decided to open my own Action Figure hobby site.
I specialize in Star Wars (new and old), Thundercats, Masters of the Universe, and any other 80's action figures.
At first glance, my website looks like a toyshop, and even though the "for sale" section is growing by the day, my intention is not to make money off the toys, but rather to expose local enthusiasts to more of the toys that our overseas counterparts get to see every day. In fact my website is just an excuse for me to buy more action figures than I usually do!
You see, this is a hobby of mine, and every toy that is for sale on my website is unique, and is considered to be a part of my own personal collection. That is why I only keep one of each. But if you want it, it is up for grabs.
The best part is that you can get involved, and get a chance to show off your own collection on my website, no matter how big or small!
The most important aspect of my website is unique to South Africa: The Toy Museum.
Here you can learn about vintage figures from the 80's and it will help you to put together a more complete collection of your own.
The Museum section I'm currently working on is the Masters of the Universe section. All those childhood memories come flooding back when you see these classic toys from the 80's. Castle Grayskull, He-Man, Orko, Man-At-Arms, Stinkor, Beast-Man, Skeletor, they're all there!
