Inspired by childhood classics, many contemporary designers are reimagining the products that defined their youth. In addition to temporary tattoos for grown-ups and toys for adults, this nostalgia has culminated in a new generation of action figures.

Once only modeled after crime-fighting superheroes and rough-and-tumble daredevils, action figures today have taken on new identities. Some, like the enlightened Yoga Joe series and the quirky collection of dissected toys put a fun spin on well-known playthings. Others are unexpectedly posable, impressively customizable, and even entirely wearable!

No matter your playtime preference, you're sure to find a new favorite toy in this selection of unconventionally cool action figures.

These cool action figures make traditional toys even more playful.
