    Welcome to the New FIGURES.com

    All the toy & action figure news, all the time. Now with a new look and features!












    For a great selection of action figures and collectibles, check out BigBadToyStore.com, Urban-Collector.com, BriansToys.com, DollsAmerica.com, ClarkToys.com, ToyWiz.com, VNCToys.com, PastGenerationToys.com, MonkeyDepot.com, RPMDiecast.com, HobbyLinkJapan.com, YesAnimation.com, and SuperheroToys.com.

    For a great selection of pop culture t-shirts and apparel, check out TShirtGurus.com and 80sTees.com.


    Welcome to the new and improved Figures.com! The intent of our redesign is twofold; both goals with you, our loyal readers, in mind.

    First is our fresh new front page look that's faster to load and easier to navigate. Here you'll find our extensive daily content, richly displayed Top News stories and all our wonderful sponsors who help make Figures.com the best toy and action figure website on the internet. It's all the toy and action figure news you've come to expect, only now more viewer friendly.

    Clicking any article brings us to the other half of the new Figures.com experience: A closer knit collecting community. In addition to fan gathering in our Forums, each toy story has been designed so that you can comment on or pose a question to. We strongly believe that constructive dialogue in this manner will bring about a closer bond with our readers and our overall passion for the hobby. From one action figure enthusiast to another, we can't wait for the conversations this new feature will deliver.

    All of this is just to beginning. In the days ahead we'll be working to update your favorite Action-online network sites, such as YoJoe.com, with all these exciting features. So kick back, invite your friends, and enjoy your stay. We're sure you'll love the new Figures.com as much as we do.

    Happy toy hunting!

    Thumbs up Re: Welcome to the New FIGURES.com

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

    Wanted to touch base on two navigation points to help everyone out a tad.

    First is rather straight forward: The NEWS tab at the top. "Archive [Current]" takes you to here, while "Archive [Classic]" takes you to our older system and news, just in case you wanted to revist an older article.

    The second is a search feature that's sorta hidden at the very bottom left corner. Under DISPLAY OPTIONS you'll see a a field with PREFIX in it. Open that up and you'll see catergories similar to our old system: by company, reviews, etc. Clicking any of those categories brings up all stories related to it. You can of course use the SEARCH THIS FORUM feature at the upper right hand corner as well for more specific inquires, like say Avatar, Spider-Man, etc.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Welcome to the New FIGURES.com

    Yes, the new site looks really awesome and loads very fast too! Whether old or new, figures.com has always been my favorite hang out for teh latest toy news and reviews

    One feedback: I still miss the search option on the Home Page
    And while going through few pages, the old site magically appeared to me. Is the transformation still going on?
    EDIT: I guess I clicked the "Classic" link.... which was indeed was helpful in finding the old Gears of war articles from NECA.. hehe

    Great Work!
