I'm not sure when my mania for action figures took off, it was probably when I owned a Comic Store for awhile, but it has gotten worse because they can produce so many now at low production numbers and keep the price within reason ($15 or lower at most good stores).
These are pictures of all the damn action figures I have and I think it is time to pare down again. The worse part is that I pare down only to watch them grow. I think they follow me home at times.
This does not include the Farscape action figures I own and about another 8 or so they watch my desk at work for me.
