IMAGINARY WORLDS IS A BI-WEEKLY PODCAST HOSTED BY ERIC MOLINSKY ABOUT SCI-FI AND OTHER FANTASY GENRES -- HOW WE CREATE THEM AND WHY WE SUSPEND OUR DISBELIEF.
Kids these days are aging out of action figures much earlier because those little plastic guys can't compete with digital characters. But collectables for adults is booming from The Dark Knight to Star Wars to Breaking Bad action figures. I visit two of the leading toy shops, NECA and Sideshow Collectables, and I talk with psychologist David Shim, who has an impressive man cave of vintage heroes and villains.
