Most Popular Action Figure Lines

What are the most popular action figures?

There are certainly some dominant brands of action figures with regard to popularity. Star Wars, Marvel, DC, G.I. Joe, and Transformers are very popular brands of action figures. Of course, these action figure brands are popular also relative to the overall number of figures made over the years. The popularity of individual figures changes frequently and often based on new figures and/or releases of new movies or other “news” related to the brand or figure. Another measure of popularity is measured by the figure’s desirability.

As the largest, most active community of action figure collectors, the Collector-ActionFigures has great, real-time measures of action figure popularity. Two of the easiest to see are based on which brands of action figures are most collected and which are most wanted.
