Action figures are more than toys or collectibles-they are statements on race, gender, class, body positivity and more. This collection of nine new essays and one interview argues that action figures should be analyzed in the same light as books, movies, television shows and other media. Through an examination of the plastic bodies that fill our shelves and toy boxes, 'Action Figure Studies' can inform the next generation of toys.

"These toys have been literal figures in the discussion of race and politics[offers] food for thought on the connection between action figures and gender bias and body positivityhyper-commercialism is also considered, including a look at Hasbro, which was famously one of the first to target both children and parents. While much is covered pertaining to how action figures stand as cultural history artifacts, through which we can explore much deeper themes, the mere mention of She-Ra and the like will send readers down a meandering and nostalgic rabbit hole. Though the sturdy foundation of this book is highly academic, the soft underbelly of bygone birthday party themes is certain to keep readers intrigued." - Booklist
