so i was at walmart the other day looking for wave 10 and got to talking to the manager who just happened to be a toy collector and he told me about this comic book toy store that just happens to be by my moms house, so i drive out there and find it and i must of drove by this store 1000 times and never noticed it. it was actually quite big.
so anyway i walk inside and low and behold this store is awsome! he has tons of comics and lots of joes! this guy had 2 huge display cases full of rah joes, some were moc but most were loose. im looking threw all the joes trying to find something good and this guy has a minty fresh grand slam just sitting there all alone, so he pulls it out and this thing was perfect, i made a offer on it but he wanted way to much, so im looking around and just happen to look up and what do i see? a freaking shit load of vehicles,lol i had been in the store for like 30 min and didn't even notice them, he had a terror drome, skystriker, cobra bugg, huricane vtol, tomahawk , just tons of vehicles. these were actually priced more reasonable then his figures so im going to go back and grab a few when i get paid this week. but this store was awsome.
i even found a 25th beachhead just sitting there and a battle armor cobra commander, two figs that were super hard to find or atleast for me and they were still just sitting there so im sure this guy doesnt have to much joe business. i asked him how often he orders joes and he said he gets 1 case every month and said the next one will be at his store within a few days so im hoping he gets wave 10. but since i mostly collect rah, this store was great for me. he also had a shit ton of other random toys, like transformers, heman, star wars, mask, just anything and everything. i dont know much about other toys except for gijoe but im sure this guy had some hidden jewels tuct away if i new what to look for. so if anyone is looking for anything inpaticular, let me know and ill see if i can find it. i was just amazed by my find today and thaught i would share so thanks for listening.

Anyways great find, i love those hole in the wall places. Randomly when im stopped off in a new area i hit "comics" or "toys" into my GPS and find all kinds of cool stuff. I love hitting a gold mine. I remember a little place i used to go to would sell vintage star wars figures for $9 a piece regardless of the figures.

Thats the best feeling of finding a whole store full of toys. I remember finding a store in NYC for the first time and had a huge smile on my face as i walked in. I look up and they had all kinds of planes hanging and joes every where. I kept going to that store for years.

Mark my words: as soon as someone here gets wind of the name and location of the store they'll swoop right in and suck up all of those Joes... ;-)
