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.

Unless you have been living under a rock the last few years, you know that FUNKO’s little POP! Vinyls line is a very big deal. While vinyl figures were not always for everyone, FUNKO has changed the landscape of collectibles and has produced a POP! that gets the thumbs up from even the most hardcore action figure junkie. MIDTOWN COMICS & ACTION FIGURE JUNKIES were able to catch up with Sean Wilkinson, the very busy Creative Director at FUNKO, as he gears up for Toy Fair ’16 in two weeks at the Jacob Javitts Center in New York City.

StarWars

The opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is so close that we can almost smell the Tauntauns. Just like many of you, we can’t wait to watch J.J. Abrams’ movie (we’ll have a spoiler-free article about the film this Friday!), and we want to help ease your wait for The Force Awakens by celebrating everything Star Wars! From comics to statues, we have a collection of Star Wars product so big that we’re betting not even Yoda could move it with the Force.  There’s an enormous selection of Star Wars items to choose from, so to help you out, we’re going to highlight our five favorite items from a few of the categories (e.g. graphic novels, Pops, action figures, etc.). We won’t tell you the odds, but we will tell you all about these must-have Star Wars items.
