On a recent trip to Weston-super-Mare, I came across this store when I went looking around the town. What really attracted my attention was the AVP Celtic Predator mural on the wall. If you’ve been looking at this site for a while there aren’t many action figure stores here in the UK aside from The Entertainer Smyths (which is on the up) and Forbidden Planet. So it’s always nice to see a store like this!
This isn’t strictly a comic book per se as they really don’t sell any comics it’s more of a game store with a large section of action figures available and a large area dedicated to NECA figures which is great as they are still one of my favorite collectible toy companies going today. Their display window is full of consoles and peripherals as well as a lot of Lego pieces, some Gremlins as well as a lot of Funko Pops.
When you go in the store, the collectible isles are to your right and they sell all sorts of figures and statues from many different companies such as Kotobukiya, Mattell, DC Direct, LEGO, Hasbro, Diamond Select Toys, Hiya Toys, Mezco, and NECA and many more it was quite incredible really! Some of the items were used and a lot of them were brand new. Most of the figures were on display in glass cases. In many ways, it reminded me of Collectors Marketplace in Arizona which I have been on to on a few occasions though it is a bit smaller.
They also had a large section dedicated to Lego sets and Warhammer, but their biggest section was to NECA and they had a lot of figures from their biggest properties including Predator, Alien, TMNT, Back to The Future, and a lot of horror figures including Toony Terrors. It wasn’t just new figures they sold but older ones too and they had some of the older NECA Predator figures on sale for very good prices! I was really impressed to see a number of the 1/4 scale figures including Spider-Man Homecoming Spider-Man and Man of Steel Superman for very reasonable prices. If you are a NECA collector here in the UK this is the place to go!
The staff was very helpful, friendly and polite and the manager was very enthusiastic. Everything was clearly labeled and very easy to find. If you are from the UK and you haven’t been to this store or visiting the UK in the future I would highly recommend this store!
