Action Figures for True Nerds

charles dickensThere’s a stigma associated with adults who collect action figures. They’re called geeks and nerds for having Star Wars characters lining their desk. But I’ve found something even geekier. The company Accoutrements makes action figures that you’ve got to be a true nerd to collect. Even if you admire any of the following people, having a mini version of them just isn’t the same as having a Darth Vader toy. So, we ask, who are these people, and who would want them?
