Wired's got a fabulous gallery of photos from the Toy and Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, OK -- the metastasized personal collection of one wonderful obsessive named Kevin Stark: "In 2000, Stark convinced the Pauls Valley City Council that the town needed a tourist attraction and the museum should be it. In 2005, it finally opened its doors. The museum seems a little out of place among Pauls Valley's other businesses: a gun store, a couple of gas stations, an insurance company or two."

I went ahead and reposted this from the VERY cool site Boing-Boing because I went to this museum last summer. I was in dorkdom heaven. The number of action figures here is astounding. I think the fee for getting in is a bit steep for what you get but over all it was a worthy experience. Beast and I even got matching T-Shirts!! ( I am sucha dork.)
