Here’s Some Of The Most Detailed Female Action Figures Available
When you hear the phrase “action figure,” what is the first image that comes to mind? We’re willing to bet it is probably something along the lines of a muscular G.I Joe figurine, or maybe something involving Superman or Spiderman. Either way, there are a multitude of qualities all of these action figures have in common. They are all heroic, they all inspire little kids to greatness, they are all fun to play with…and oh, yeah, they are also all men.
There definitely were not a ton of female action figures back in childhood days. The closest little girls could get to a positive role model were American Girl dolls. But lately, that has all changed. Now small children have a range of action figures to choose from, including both male and female figurines. Female action figure collectors can finally start collecting figurines that look like them (to a certain extent…we can’t all have superhero bodies, after all). There has been a revolution in the world of female superheros and just female heroines in general, even those without super powers. Our society is finally beginning to recognize that women and girls contribute just as much as men and boys, and their stories deserve to be heard, too.
We have rounded up a list of all the newest, coolest, female action figures and collectibles. Whether you are a man or a woman, or you are shopping for a toy for your little girl or boy, there is a lot to appreciate in the new world of female action figures.
