I think I speak for all all Action Figure Junkies that we will collectively sigh in relief when 2016 comes to a close after an unmatched year of iconic losses culminating this week with geek goddess Carrie Fisher. With the loss of a bona fide Princess and most of Junkies first crush in action figure form no doubt, it seems a good time to focus on the happy. And you just don’t get happier than toys and year end Top 10 lists!

It was a banner year for action figures with a slew of newcomers and old favorites redefined that made our collective wallets scream for sweet relief. Here we have gathered our ten best that are available here on the Midtown Comics retail website. It was tough to cut the list down to just ten items in our expansive inventory but if one pattern emerged, its that STAR WARS, Batman & POP Vinyls have major staying power.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the cave

No danger was lurking- no sidekicks to save;

The costumes all hung, displayed in their place

While I monitored the city for crime- just in case;

But Gotham is quiet, no alarms to be heeded

A night without trouble- just what this Bat needed!

I think of my family, both present and past

And I hope for their sake, that this peace will last.

Nightwing’s away, in Bludhaven, alone

Batgirl and Jim Gordon are spending Christmas at home.

Batwoman’s on a mission, some personal task

She never tells, so I never ask.

Haven’t heard from Jason, aka the Red Hood

Don’t know what he’s up to- probably no good.

Red Robin is gone, lost in an attack

But I don’t mourn too hard ‘cause he’ll probably be back.

Robin and Alfred have settled in for the night

And I may as well join them, since all seems alright.

But before I can leave, I am alarmed by a sound

I pull down my mask and turn quickly around.

I scan the whole cave through the lens of my cowl

“Show yourself!” I say, with my scariest growl!

“You should relax,” comes the voice of a friend

As from the heights of the cave, Superman descends.

“Just thought I’d drop by, give your spirit a lift,

Extend you warm wishes, and the simplest gift:

Your city tonight is under my care

The streets are protected- they won’t need you there.

So, spend time with your family, take a much needed break

Try having a normal Christmas- for Damian’s sake!”

“Thank you, old friend,” I managed to say,

Before he turned in the air, and flew quickly away.

But I heard him call back before he flew out of sight:

“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good Knight!
