The action figure has had a long and rich history in popular culture. From Mego Planet of the Apes figures to Hasbro G.I. Joes to Kenner Star Wars collectibles, the action figure is an art form. The evolution of the platform has reached its peak in recent years with many incredibly talented artists taking on the medium.
Michael Norman has hundreds of iconic figures to his credit. The photo above shows a sliver of the work he has done. Perhaps there would be a book showcasing more of his talents in the near future. Perhaps it would be titled, “Blank Man: The Art of the Action Figure.” And perhaps Blacksparrow would publish it.
