I've been collecting for about a year and started really getting serious about it the last few months. Where are good places to look for good action figure. I collect Walking Dead, Marvel, DC and loose figures from cartoons and movies from the 80's and 90's.

Check around you locally. Comic shops, hobby shops, flea markets, collectible shows, sometimes even Goodwill or an Antique Market. They aren't necessarily consistent, but you can sometimes hit on an unexpected score. Try spending time building relationships with the stores' owners/employees, even if they don't have anything on hand, they might have contacts that do.

Another "good" place (your results may vary) is always eBay.

... and once you spend more time here and build your self up, we have a fairly good group of people that are willing to trade, sell, or go on a hunt for you.

Welcome to the boards.

If we knew (at least in a more general sense) where you were located some of us might have more specific suggestions for your searches. Seems like every big city has at least one or two go-to places for collectors.

I'm in New Egland about 1.5 hours between New York or Boston.
