    Long-time member asking for community support (non-monetary)

    Hello all,

    I have posted here today to ask for anyone's support who is an adult and collects action figures, Masters or otherwise. I am currently working on my Master of Fine Arts in Design Thesis at the University of Wisconsin Stout. My thesis centers around the adult collector, the increasing frequency in which adults collect action figures, and how we interact with or display them. I have composed a brief research survey for which I badly need participants. It would mean so much if you could take this brief 3-4 minute survey. I don't have the kind of clout necessary to go on social media and make any kind of a dent. If any of you could share this with people you know in the action figure community, it would be much appreciated.

    The survey is through the university (no shady third-party shenanigans) and all information is anonymous. Thank you for your time and good journey.

    Best,
    Shane

    I just took it and for anyone wondering it's a quick survey aimed entirely at how you collect and display. Nothing crazy or personal.


    Easy to take and I was done in a couple of minutes

    I've completed that survey.

    By the way, this question "Given the option, assign these display features a point value where 10 is most desired" appears to have a typo in that the scale of 1 to 10 has two number 6's.

    Done and done. I wasn’t sure when you said “lines” if you meant franchises(like MOTU, Star Wars...etc) or size/type (Like Origins, Classics, Masterverse) but, I answered what I thought you meant.


    And, good luck! It feels good when you’re done!

    Done, and even it was not asked in the questionnaire, answer comes from an international collector if it may be considered as a plus. Good luck

    Thank you!

    I believe my thesis will be in the university's database. I will be sure to post a link in December if any of you are interested in reading some academic gobbledygook
