Not to bad. The store was huge with action figures from all over. I went mainly to pick up body parts and various fodder which they did have. I will say however for being a store they are not really willing to come down on prices. I understand they have a huge overhead for the business but I still would of liked some good deals. One cool thing they had was a giant table with parts and pieces and fodder that was not sorted yet. anything on that table was a $1. I came away with some interesting pieces. I also scored 2 headhunter stormtroopers for $10. So not all that bad. I would say they are not really set up for the "customizer" though. They are more looking out for the customer who is wanting certain figs or parts. I had a hard time finding any junk vehicles or figure parts for cheap. Overall though I enjoyed it. Oh and sorry they did not have a long arm figure.

No worries Kramer. It sounds like a lot of fun. Did you see Captain Power toys?

I did see some, but they did not have a huge collection of them. After seeing a store like that it makes me want to start collecting other great 80s and 90s toy lines. I especially like dick tracy figures, and inhumanoids. Great stuff.

I was able to visit their store when it was basically in their garage. The price policy was strict then, too, getting premium prices on loose vintage stuff. Nice condition, but not necessarily complete. However, they were pretty generous on loose accessories; I got handfuls of acc.pack weapons for dimes a piece. Some trashed vehicle shells, too.
