The NEW Action Figure Display System
March 4, 2009

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the Dan and Jeff Phillips, creators of the AFD Action Figure Displays.  They had a new series of products that I think the collecting community will really love.  It’s a fairly simple but brilliant concept.   They have printed a series of original high-res images on Gatorboard, which is an extruded polystyrene foam board bonded between two layers of wood-fiber veneers, to create display stands for a WIDE variety of different scales of action figures.  There are also rubber bumpers underneath the floor panel prevent your display from sliding or falling. 

They currently have 17 different designs for every type of figure, from space, to cities and alleys, to every sport they make figures for, wrestling and more.  And according to there site there are another dozen designs on the way!

These come shipped flat in a box and are well packed to prevent damage.  When you open the box you will find the stand in two parts, the wall and the base, so there is some assembly required.



But it’s quite simple, you just peel off the paper on the adhesive tabs, press the adhesive tabs to the other part of the base and viola!  You have an action figure stand!

From there you can start populating your stand however you see fit!   (Click on MORE to see some examples)

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
