Like Samurai Comics I had been to Collectors Marketplace on my previous trip to Arizona. On my last trip here I was very impressed and when I went again earlier this year I was still in awe of it.
Collectors Marketplace is the second biggest collectible store that I have been to Stateside and if you’ve never been there before your very likely to be very impressed. As you enter the store you’re met with a counter and a high-end collectibles display on the opposite wall.
The store is incredibly well stocked and well laid out and organized. They have sections for WWE figures, Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvel Legends, DC, NECA, Funko Pops McFarlane, Turtles, Imports and the list goes on and on. If you’re a collector you’re undoubtedly going to find something here that you’ll want.
The items are very reasonably priced and they had a great mix of vintage and newer figures. I was really astounded by the array of figures. Most of the figures were brand new in packaging and some were in display cases. This was for all their sections, though some were much bigger than others like the Star Wars one for example.
I should mention that on some weekends they host some local collector events such as other sellers or a Funko Pop Collectors Market which is handy if you cannot find the pieces you’re after elsewhere. Though I should mention some of the prices can be pretty steep. I should also note that the store can get pretty packed on weekends.
Undoubtedly you would be spoiled for choice when you go to the store. I’ve been three times in all and I always had a hard time deciding what I wanted to get there.
The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and can help you find what you’re looking for with ease.
Overall I highly recommend Collectors Marketplace if you’re ever visiting Arizona.
