Kevin Stark is an action figure collector, comic book artist and the curator of the Toy & Action Figure Museum.
Back in 2000 Stark convinced the Paul's Valley, Oklahoma, City Countil that they needed a tourist attraction and the toy museum would solve the problem. Five years later the museum opened its doors.
Inside is one of the largest action figure exhibits in the world, from a Star Wars display to a Batman shrine, the amount of figures the museum has on display outweighs its display space, meaning figures are on constant rotation so every character and creation gets it due.
Since opening in 2005 the museum has had visitors from every state in the U.S. and over thirty foreign countries, totaling over 40,000 visitors. Wired has gallery of pictures if you can't go in person. http://www.wired.com/culture/culturereviews/multimedia/2009/02/gallery_action_figure_museum
