ABOUT HEROES IN ACTION:
Based in Northridge, CA, with additional offices in New York, and Chicago, the Heroes in Action Toy Company is owned and operated by Mark Huckabone. For the past 30 years, Huckabone, 41, a Chicago native, has earned an international reputation as one of the leading collectors and dealers in the world of vintage toys from the 1970s to present day. Huckabone’s inventory covers primarily TV, comic book, cartoon, and movie-related toys. In addition, he is especially well known for his expertise in Mego Toys, owning perhaps the world’s largest such collection.
Huckabone launched his Heroes in Action Toy Company in 2009 with an initial action figure of President Barack Obama. As a result of the sales success of this initial Obama figure, Huckabone was next inspired to create other presidents (JFK and Lincoln.) Ultimately, the sales of these “traditional” presidential toys spawned the birth of his truly unique “Presidential Monsters” toy line in 2011.
Huckabone is also a part-time actor. Additionally, he has appeared as a recurring regular guest on the Travel Channel’s reality TV series “Toy Hunters,” as well as on an episode entitled “Ming’s In Charge” of the AMC TV series “Comic Book Men.” Huckabone has also supplied toys for Seth Green’s TV series “Robot Chicken,” which airs on Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim.” For more information, please visit: http://heroesinactiontoys.vpweb.com/
