The Toy & Action Figure Museum

action_figure_009

Kevin Stark from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma is a figurine collector and comic book artist who has become the Toy & Action Figure Museum curator. The museum has one of the largest action figure displays in the world, along with a Batman shrine, a superhero changing room and enough Transformers, G.I. Joes and He-Man figures to fill a grown man’s bedroom in his mom’s basement.

In 2000, Stark convinced the Pauls Valley City Council that the town needed a tourist attraction and the museum should be it. In 2005, it finally opened its doors. The museum seems a little out of place among Pauls Valley’s other businesses: a gun store, a couple of gas stations, an insurance company or two. But if you love action figures, you’ll find plenty to covet HERE.
