Gift Suggestions - Are you shopping for a gift for an action figure collector? Here are a few ideas to help get you started on your way to a gift that they will love.
RTM Spotlight - The Spotlight is a regular column which highlights new toys and action figures, featuring pictures and detailed information. If you were thinking about buying one of the featured toys as a gift, the Spotlight can help you learn more about it before you make the purchase.
