For some adult buyers, action figures are a means of self-expression. That expression might take unusual forms - figures of Sigmund Freud, for example, which are among those manufactured by the novelty company Accoutrements in Seattle.
"If you're a therapist and you have a Sigmund Freud doll in your office, that says a lot about what kind of therapist you are," said David Wahl, the company's director of public relations. "We try to hit the part of the brain that's nostalgic for childhood and connect it to the adult part of their brain." The company also sells figures that honor what Mr. Wahl called "underappreciated professions," like baristas, librarians and male nurses.
