Action figures are miniature Golems, most often made from wood carved into toy-sized animals or men. They normally come in sets of ten.

On command, they'll have a mock battle with each other or play out some kind of story, usually for the sake of entertainment. They're incapable of harming anyone (accidents are quite rare), but they're good at making flashy combat moves using tiny, wooden weapons. Each figure normally comes with a variety of accessories.

They generally ham it up and are terribly over-dramatic. Their lines can sometimes be delivered poorly, but they have a sense of charm that appeals to children.

These toys are usually made with jointed limbs and can wear doll clothes. They're often painted with ridiculous-looking underwear (for example, the knight might have little hearts on his). Their accessories are most often made of painted wood, but sometimes leather and cloth.

Most of them are now built by a Pixie village on Medusa Island in the Strawberry Empire. Their work is always of the most exquisite detail. It should also be noted that those built by the Pixies are close enough in size to use Pixie-sized weapons, armor and clothing.

Here is an example set:

The above is the most common set available on the market and is sold from between $5,000 and $20,000, depending on the level of detail and artistry. The figures from the original set are worth $100,000 each, due to their rarity as collector's items. At first glance, this original set would appear to be a low-quality knock-off of one of the current popular sets, so they're likely to be over-looked.

Strangely enough, this particular type of set sometimes takes their show on the road, performing for transportation, shelter or pocket change. It is unclear how they come to this decision. However, it's believed that this behavior is connected to the Princess in some manner, because no set has ever been found on their own without her.

There's also a common scorpion action figure intended for home defense. They're very simple and cheaply made, but the wealthy can easily purchase them in large numbers.
