80 Geek-Certified Figurines

Child's Play Gets a New Meaning With These Nerdy Miniatures

— March 29, 2013 — Life-Stages
While we have come to accept that a popular pastime for children is playing with action figures, you'll notice from this list of geek-certified figurines that while some have completely outgrown toying with miniatures of their favorite movie and TV show characters, the love for these dorky little creations has only grown stronger for others.

Once you move out of the realm of children-specific action figures, you'll come to note that many of the miniature creations available to adults are highly detailed play things that most who actually own them would rather not toy around with at all.

Instead, these geek certified creations proudly line the walls and shelves of science fiction, comic book and, in some cases, cat lady-loving people all around the world.
