Where is this toy shop that pays money for old toys? I have boxes of shit in my closet that I've wanted to get rid of for years.
So I went over the House of Fun today and got rid of a TON of shit. I made a bit more than I had thought I would (65 bucks). I would have liked to have made more with it. I handed out a lot of good boxed stuff, but they just aren't very rare. Oh well. I just needed to get rid of that stuff. If you're looking to just get rid of stuff quick and make a few dollars I'd say do it. He takes opened/loose figures too. They're worth dick, but its better than throwing them in the trash.
The guys store is AWESOME though. It's like a tiny toy museum. I looked around when I was done trading and I could have spent all my money and went home with more toys easily (though I did buy 2 NES games with the money). So much TMNT, Ghostbusters, He-Man, everything. Figures from the old 89 Batman film, Pee Wee's play house, Power Rangers, Transformers. I could have spent 2 hours in there going through everything. So many memories and obscure shit I've never even seen before. If I had seen a Stay Puft Marshmellow Man figure I would have gotten him in a heart beat. I'm sure he was in there somewhere though, but I didn't want to ask because I knew I'd get it. Also, not too many video games, but what he has is pretty good. Worth the trip just for the blast of the past factor.
Anyway, I'll probably miss my Snake Plissken, Ash from Army of Darkness, and all my Metal Gear Solid 2 figures (minus the two Snakes and Meryl which I kept). I won't really miss any of the Harry Potter and odds and ends though.
