When I was in Somerset and Weston Super-Mare this past weekend I found two comic book stores and this was one of them. When I was in Glastonbury and I came across this store. It should be known that there aren’t that many action figure stores outside a few toy store chains so seeing ones like this is a nice surprise. This store is very easy to find as it’s on the main street in Glastonbury. The Comic Store is quite a small and packed store full of different comic books and action figures and statues from different properties.
I was quite amazed by the array of toys both old and new. They had figures from Hasbro, Playmates, Mattel, McFarlane Toys and NECA, and some import companies. They sold a lot of older vintage figures and more current ones which is great if you are after an item that’s really expensive on the secondary market or not sold in other stores. They had some NECA and Hasbro figures that are quite hard to get hold of as I was really surprised to see the NECA 20″ Lord of The Rings Legolas figure which I have been after for a few years!
Most of the products had price stickers on them, and they were all reasonably priced considering how expensive some of these figures are on the secondary market. I did see a Clone Wars Darth Maul Returns 3-pack which looked in fantastic condition! There’s certainly a lot of hidden gems in this store and they are bound to have something your after!
It should be noted that the owner Paul was very friendly and knowledgeable which is always great to see in a comic store! If you’re visiting the area I highly recommend it!
