On a recent trip to Newcastle’s Metro Centre, I found an action figure store called Be More Geek. It is a small store but there is a chain of these stores in the North of England which is bigger than this one. For a small store, they are very well stocked. They sold a whole host of different products from various companies and the biggest two were Funko Pop and NECA and I was really really impressed with the array of figures.
They sold Back To The Future, Horror, Predator, TMNT, and quite a number of 1/4 scale products which really astounded me. All the items had labels on with their prices which I thought was great and all the products were very reasonably priced. They didn’t just show just sell toys they also sold masks, pins, and various other Halloween and horror goodies. If you live in the UK like me you know there aren’t many horror or Halloween themed stores here at all (aside from buying things online)
Again these were very reasonably priced. Also, everything was very well organized and laid out. What was also great was that they had some of the latest releases such as the NECA Ultimate Friday The 13 Part VII The New Blood Jason Voorhees and the recent re-releases of the NECA 1/4 scale Batman 89 and TMNT 1990 figures which I was very pleasantly surprised to see.
It should be noted that the employee that I met was very friendly, welcoming, and enthusiastic. The window display was very well decorated with some new products and large statues, Overall I highly recommend this store if you haven’t been to this store yet or haven’t visited Newcastle yet.
