Yesterday in Part One of visiting the Toy and Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, I covered the Army Room, the Play Room, the Star Wars Room, the Batman Room, and the Super Hero Collection. In Part Two of the article, I’ll be covering the rest of what we saw.
In the middle of the museum are two rotating displays.
LEGOs and Roy Rogers
The left hand side held a huge LEGO collection — mostly newer, but still fun to look at, and massive in size. On the right hand side sits a large collection of vintage Roy Rogers toys. Both of these displays are on loan and change from time to time.
Kyle Windrix Collection
Kyle Windrix is a “master sculptor” from Purcell, Oklahoma, who previously worked for McFarlane before moving to NECA. All of the figures seen below are prototypes for toys which were hand sculpted and painted by Windrix. They are a sight to behold in person, I assure you.
There are miscellaneous displays all over the museum — some in glass display cases, others perched on top of displays, even others hanging above from strings. I literally have 30 pictures of random things I took; here are five of them just to give you a taste.
A collection of Hawkman figures.
Spider-Man is not impressed.
Believe it or not, I still haven’t shared my favorite part of the museum.
Behold, the Adult Collector’s Bedroom Diorama
Wow. Just, wow.
The Adult Collector’s Bedroom Diorama is located just to your left when you enter the museum. Assuming you work your way through the museum in a clockwise fashion, you’ll see the bedroom twice — once from a few feet away when entering, and then up close and personal toward the end of your visit. Like many families I assume, my kids instantly ran to the display upon entering and had to be pried away from it so we could see the rest of the museum.
I don’t know how many of the museum’s 13,000 action figures are in this single display, but it’s a lot.
I mean like, a lot.
Like, a lotta lotta lot.
And the funny thing is, the longer you look at it, the more funny things you begin to discover.
Like Crash Test Dummies on the Millennium Falcon…
…and two pair of boxers…
…and “the concert”…
…and the Ghostbusters.
I have literally dozens more great pictures to share, but instead I’ll encourage you to visit the Toy and Action Figure Museum and discover some of them on your own.
When you go, take a friend!
And make sure you don’t leave any of your kids home alone!
Okay, okay, I’ll stop.
