Limiting your collection to just one or two themes will keep you from spending willy-nilly on any old action figure that catches your eye. Not having a focus can lead to a mish-mash collection of figures that, down the road, you may consider impulse purchases and ultimately a waste of your money.
Or maybe you're simply a fan of the craftsmanship put into action figures. Therefore, you may want to focus your collection on figures that have excellent sculpts and paint jobs. This could make for a very beautiful collection as each new figure is added.
Once you've gotten a good idea on why you want to collect action figures, you can start your collection by making some smart first purchases. Start out by doing a little research by reading online action figure news sites and fan forums. They'll let you know what's hot and what's not.
Are you a fan of a particular movie? Then you may want to limit your collection to action figures based on the movie (e.g., collecting only figures).
