16 of the Gayest Action Figures

Alan Cumming, Ian McKellen, Zachary Quinto, they all have action figures!

Gay Bob & Dyke Doll

Now, for a bit of historical perspective, we thought it might be worth mentioning this little "doll" marketed as the "World's First Gay Doll for Everyone." Sold for $14.95, he was reportedly a cross between Robert Redford and Paul Newman, although he's clearly just Action Man with hair dye (as is pointed out at Vice's story of "The Dumbest Action Figures of All Time"). He was also touted as having "private parts." Then in 2008 we got Dyke Dolls, which were equally stereotypical. We're not recommending that these are desirable for a true collection, but it's worth knowing how bad things can get in the collectible universe.
