“I built Mint Condition Collection because just playing with my action figures wasn’t fulfilling enough,” says founder Michael Sherrin. “I wanted to share them, rate them, and track them. Action figures, like most things, are best when played with others.”
Mint Condition Collection was developed because no collection tool catered to the needs of action figure collectors. Michael Sherrin designed a system that is easy to use and robust in its features, while always remaining free and open.
“Some collection tools want you to pay for basic features, while others fail to account for unique action figure collecting quirks, like tracking custom action figures or allowing you to add only one figure from a two-pack,” says Sherrin. “Mint Condition Collection makes tracking your action figure collection fun and simple.”
