An action figure is a poseable character model figure made most commonly of plastic, and often based upon characters from a filmcomic bookmilitaryvideo game or television programfictional or historical. These figures are usually marketed toward boys and adult collectors.

While most commonly marketed as a child's toy, the action figure has gained widespread acceptance as collector item for adults. In such a case, the item may be produced and designed on the assumption it will be bought solely for display as a collectible and not played with like a child's toy.
