I think those are the action figures from Marvel's new Netflix series "The Redeemers".
My mother collects nativity scenes, and a setup like this would probably be right at home in her house... although it would likely look a little bit different after my stepbrother got his hands on it.
See, my family has a number of bizarre Christmas traditions. One of them involves creating gingerbread houses with incredibly graphic scenes of carnage, but that's over in a single night. The custom that lasts throughout the entire holiday season is the ongoing war between my stepbrother and my mother.
Everything starts when my mother sets up a dozen or so of her nativity scenes. Once they're all on display, my stepbrother will do something small to one of them and see how long it takes my mother to notice. (He'll usually replace the baby Jesus with a Tootsie Roll or something.) My mother will eventually demand the Magic Jew's return to his manger, my stepbrother will oblige, and everyone will settle their differences over a mug of hot chocolate.
Then, when nobody is looking, my stepbrother will escalate things. One year, he switched all of the Jesi with one another and also had an action figure of some variety pay one of them a visit. On another year, he allegedly left clues in each of the mangers about where the missing Messiahs could be found. My mother is usually a pretty good sport about it, too... although she didn't appreciate it much when one of her Sons of Man wound up in a rather *compromising* position.
That one may have been my doing, to be honest.

Put an Obi Wan figure up there and see how long it lasts
It's not an action figure it's a collectors statue
And here I thought they looked like pieces from a giant chess set.
I'm looking, but I don't see St. Anthony. Know Anyone I can ask to help me find something that can't be found?
Oh look the 3rd one from the bottom right has the battle staff, that's rare to find included in the collection now a days.
It's incredible how a couple generations can cause such a huge difference in religious devotion. I've seen this exact thing in *many* families. The grandmother or parents are very religious with a house full of religious imagery and "action figures" but, one or two generations down the line, religion is no longer a major concern in day-to-day life. From practically all-consuming to a non-factor. Religion's decline in modern life is very steep. I'm not upset about that.
Oh shit! Is that Jesus the Destroyer of Sin 1st edition with Christ Fu grip? *Sweet*
What? No collection of portraits of the Pope? Heresy!
She needs some vehicles to round out her collection. Maybe a Noah's Ark or an Ezekiel's chariot/spaceship.
