Collector's Call Web Extras: Action figures and toys from the 1960s and beyond
This stand-up comic has pristine toys from his youth — Batman, Star Trek, Major Matt Mason, James Bond and more!
Bill Leff is a former standup comedian who has spent the last 20-plus years working as a radio talk show host. Bill’s collection is almost as fun as he is. Since childhood, he has amassed thousands of vintage toys, dolls and figurines.
Bill’s collection includes rare items that may be familiar to some Baby Boomers – like the multi-purpose boys’ action figure from the 1960s, Captain Action; or the Outer Spacemen, a beloved group of extra-terrestrial figurines from the Colorforms toy company.
