Large companies that deal in games and action figures such as EA or NECA launch their very own action figure line up that span over different genres of movies, games, music and various other categories. The problem being that these action figures and collectibles are not available in abundance as the manufacturers produce them keeping in mind special offers and pre-order packages and bonuses. Thus getting a hold of these priceless mementos can be quite the task as it requires hours of research and steadfast dedication. But fear not as these tips and tricks will come in handy so as to help you on your way to creating the best collection possible without racking your brains.

  • KEEP A TRACK: Always and forever keep in mind that research is a must when it comes to collecting. Do your homework well and look up information regarding your action figure or collectible via their respective sites.

  • GAMING CULTURE AND ADVICE: Blogs are a great way to seek advice and important data regarding your collectible. They keep you posted about new happenings taking place and are rife with information that will keep you a step forward from the rest.

  • MONETARY WOES: If you do follow a budget, make sure to stick to it and not get wrapped up in all the glitz and glamour that the collectible has to offer.

  • UNIQUE OFFERS: Pre-orders may seem like a steal at first but do not get roped in by them that easily. Do a bit of research regarding the prices of the pre-orders and take time out to pit online sites against each other as to get the best price possible.

  • RARE COLLECTIBLES: These are a real doozy to get your hands on. They are really illusive and tend to get out of stock before you know it. This is why one must always keep their eyes open and record dates, time and other related information about the launch of these articles so as to reap the benefits in time.

  • GOING, GOING GONE: Auctions are a great way to get your hands on action figures or collectibles that you may have missed out on the market. They give you a second chance but may prove to be a bit costly.
