Quick Hits

New Orleans Saints - undefeated (as of 200p on 10/25). Black and Gold Super Bowl?

Star Wars figures - the astromech droids are worth more than the clone troopers. Go figure.

Oct. 25th - New World Mike's Birthday. All these years and still playing with toys.

Anyone know some place to sell Pleurex Catheters?

Finally, get a gander at the Stormtrooper Pumpkin that New World Angi did for her company picnic.....

These are not the treats you want....

Change is in the Air!

Like with most of you, it has been a crazy year. On a personal front, momentous changes are on the way. On the business front, things have been up, down, and sideways.

We are looking at implementing a few store/ecommerce applications to the website in the near future. The first ones we are looking at are the Amazon Webstore application and the Auctiva Storefront. If anyone has any feedback on either one, please feel free to email us.

Our store selection is evolving as well as we are parading out a large amount of Star Wars figures that have never been at shows. The majority of them are from Revenge of the Sith, Attack of the Clones, McQuarrie concept, and similar, and there are still some key characters (Clones, Anakin, Darth Maul) available. The prices are very good, so we do not anticipate them lasting long.

We are also adding a large selection of Disney Bean Bag plushes just in time for Christmas. This under appreciated line has some great entries including several different Mickeys, Pooh characters, Jungle Book, Toy Story, Snow White, and many more. These make great impulse gifts or stocking stuffers.

Finally, we are preparing for a big two day show in November - the Virginia Comicon in Richmond. Brett and company are bringing in some great guests as well as some unique events (bowling, anyone?) that we are really looking forward to. Some of those guests includes Larry Hama - the "father" of the modern GI Joe franchise (Yo, Joe!), Chris Claremont - writer of the X-Men Phoenix Saga and the shaper of the New X-Men, Billy Tucci - creator of Shi, Mike McKone - artist extraordinaire, Mark McKenna - inker extraordinaire, Tsunami Studios, and many more! And there's more! CGC and Hero Initiative will be there as well. Get your comics signed and graded.

Here's the one of the best parts - get your tickets in advance, and we will be giving you 20% off everything at our booth the entire weekend. So, if you are anywhere within a three hour drive of Richmond, VA and you are into comics, you owe it to yourself to go. You can order tickets here
