Gift Ideas for Toy Collectors – Army Builders
Depending on what line they collect, you could always opt to get a toy collector some army builder figures.
Army builders are characters that are intended to be collected in multiples, usually nameless good guys and bad guys.
There are all sorts of army builders depending on what lines you are shopping for. For instance:-
Imperial Forces from Star Wars
Cobra Goons from G.I. Joe
Foot Soldiers from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Gift Ideas for Toy Collectors – Display Accessories
One of the best parts of collecting is organizing perfect displays with all of your figures.
However, these displays can be greatly enhanced with a little work. For example, consider getting mountable LED lights for shelving units.
These lights can really make a collection pop, and are cheap and easy to install.
For loose collectors or collectors who take toys out of the box, consider getting simple stands to place on shelves to ‘tier’ figures on as well.
You can also get action figure stands that will fit a large variety of characters to keep figures stable for long-term display.
These stands have a lot of use across toy lines and keep figures from toppling over, causing a domino effect in a display.
