The other day I showed you some great vintage toys up for bid in Hake’s current auction, but there were also a bunch of action figures that caught my eye. Sometimes, it’s just easier to buy an entire collection than to build one piece by piece. So, if you have some cash burning a hole in your wallet and are looking to expand your action figure empire, take a look at these…
