A doll by another name, differing from a doll by being designed for tough, aggressive, "masculine" situations. Used by males to disguise their insecurity with being associated with traditionally "feminine" things. Just like a kilt is not caled a "skirt".
"Action figure"? What does that mean anyway? Is it an active thing? What does it mean? Call it what you like it, but any way that you look at it, an "action figure" is a doll by another name; "That which we call a rose/By any other word would smell as sweet."-Juliet, Romeo and Juliet
A plastic figure that usually does an action (hence the name). Are usually owned by 10 year old boys who incest that they're NOT or HAVE anything in common with a doll and 40 year old virgin nerds with a capital N who collect them along with dolls and not allow any part of it to leave the case until it becomes of ulimate value.
