Even if you do not know how to play basketball or even what it is, you probably know who Michael Jordan is. The National Basketball Association or even basketball in general, although not really that popular in the US, is a very marketable industry especially in the sports category. Big name brands like Nike and Adidas have made millions marketing their line of shoes through the sport. Another industry benefiting from the sport is the toy action figure industry.
Basketball action figures are toys that are designed with a famous NBA player in mind. They model these action figures from the facial features to the apparel that they wear. Even accessories are included like headbands, wrist bands, mouth guards and even compression shorts.
These action figures come in a variety of different poses. They can be dunking the ball, performing the lay-up, blocking the shot or simply just resting. However, not all players come in these various poses and unfortunately you they are not pose-able as they do not have any articulation points.
Basketball action figures are prized by toy collectors worldwide because of the resale value. Some of these toys can even sell for hundreds of dollars depending on the rarity and condition.
