Christmas is coming and getting gifts for the geeks in your life can be complicated. Luckily, you can never go wrong with a few cool action figures.Christmas is the one time of the year when we get to ask and give things to the members of our family that they really like, but sometimes it can be hard landing the right present. The Walyou team is aware of that, so we have compiled some of the best action figures you can purchase right now, which are some amazing geeky toys for people of all ages. From action figures for grown ups to gifts for kids, here are some ideas so you can have an easier holiday season.
Playskool Heroes Star Wars Millennium Falcon and Figurines
With the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, now is the perfect time to get back into Star Wars collectibles. Out of the many, many official sets, our favorite right now has to be the Playskool Heroes Star Wars Millennium Falcon and Figurines, which includes the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo and Chewbacca figurines along with it. Furthermore, it comes with an R2-D2 figure, sensor dish, cannon, ladder, and label sheet so kids can pretend to be the most charismatic smuggler in the galaxy and adults can expose it anywhere they want.
Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Transforming Batcave
One of the big characters making a return this year is Batman, one of the main stars in the upcoming film Batman V Superman. This is a Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Transforming Batcave for the young ones who are as excited as we are about the caped crusader’s return, and it includes a transforming bat-cave, and Batman and Joker figurines to play in it. It’s currently on sale at $44.99 which saves you $15 USD from the retail price, so this is a great option.
Minecraft Core Player Survival Pack Action Figure
Minecraft has become unbelievably huge, and gamers of all ages and backgrounds love it. That is why the Minecraft Core Player Survival Pack Action Figure has become such a hot item for this holiday season,being the star of one of the biggest games of all times. The best part about it, though, is that you can get this figurine for just under $10 USD, making it the perfect gift for the young ones in the family.
POP Marvel: Deadpool Vinyl Bobble-head Figure
Prediction: if 2015 was the year of Star Wars, 2016 will be the year of Deadpool. With an upcoming movie and all, this POP Marvel: Deadpool Vinyl Bobble-head Figure by Funko is meant to become one of the hottest items throughout the year, and we’re sure it will become a highly sought collectible. Get them while they last, you will thank us afterwards. As of now, this figurine costs just under $12 USD.
Power Rangers Dino Charge – Dino Charge Megazord
While all incarnations of the Power Rangers are special in their own right, we always had some special feelings for the Dino Charge Rangers, our favorite team in recent history, for featuring the Dino Charge Megazord, the coolest mecha they have had so far. The mecha can be disassembled into three separate robots featuring three robots. Still, the point is that all three can combine with other figurines from the series into bigger and bigger mechas.
Toy Story Pull String Woody 16″ Talking Figure – Disney Exclusive
This is an incredibly detailed Toy Story Pull String Woody 16″ Talking Figure, a Disney Exclusive featuring the main star from the Toy Story movie series. It is pretty big at 16″ tall, and when you pull the string, it can say up to 19 different phrases at random. It is on sale right now at $25 USD, half off from its regular $50 USD price, so whether you’re a collector or just think someone would like this present during the holidays, now is the time to get it.
The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Link Nendoroid
Although there weren’t any home console Zelda games this year, we always have a special place in our hearts for Link. This The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Link Nendoroid is based off of Toon Link as seen in the beloved Wind Waker and the Super Smash Bros series. You can buy this cute figurine at 28% off from its regular price for a grand total of $35.94 USD, which is not bad at all for such a detailed figurine.
Star Wars The Black Series Darth Vader 6″ Figure
The Star Wars Black Series by Hasbro recreates some of the most classic figurines that came out along with the original trilogy. These are figurines that are more meant to be cool and classic rather than cute, and might appeal to older collectors. Out of the entire series, our favorite model is absolutely the Star Wars The Black Series Darth Vader 6″ figurine, featuring Anakin Skywalker’s alter ego in its most iconic outfit from the original trilogy. You can buy this figurine for just under $30 USD.
Minecraft Diamond Steve Action Figure
We already talked about how much Minecraft means to gamers all around the world, so that is why we also wanted to recommend a second version of the main playable character Steve. The Minecraft Diamond Steve Action Figure features a 2.75″ articulated Steve in Diamond armor, the most durable set from the game, which comes with a removable helmet, diamond block and a sword that fits in his hand. It is on sale right now, and you can get it for $7.19 (40% off).
Funko POP! Marvel: Dancing Groot Bobble Action Figure
The Funko POP! Marvel: Dancing Groot Bobble Action Figure is the most sought-out Bobblehead figurine right now, and we can’t blame the collectors for this. Groot already stole everyone’s heart in Guardians of the Galaxy and this figurine cranks the cuteness to 11. While you can potentially get the entire cast from the movie for less than $30 USD, we wanted to point this figurine out at $6.99 USD – at this price, it’s a crime to not get it.
