Faux hamsters and mind-powered games may be snagging the holiday toy spotlight. But action figures remain boy-toy staples. And since I’ve a been an action figure collector dating back to the original “Star Wars” era, I still get giddy when trolling the toy aisles. Here are a few action figure items I’ve found dripping with cool.
Prices are manufacturer’s suggested retail. Items can be found at most major toy retailers and online at sites like Amazon.com.
There’s huge anticipation behind what may be director James Cameron’s most groundbreaking film yet. The CGI technology used to create the alien creatures and their homeland is supposedly off the hook. So Mattel stays in step by adding a computer element called i-Tag.
The figures are available in standard 3 3/4-inch ($8.99) size and the more-than-6-inch Movie Masters size ($14.99).
