My experiences were not very good with Heroes & Hobbies.
Yea I notice a signicant amount of these places are run by hipster geeky assholes. There was this sick shop up in kirkland, I can't remember the name, but the owner was totally like the comic store guy on the simpsons. Just a smug patronizing dick, but I actually found it humorous what a streotype he lived up to be. Haha i looked up the reviews on his place and he is famous for being a prick I guess. I mean other than that, yeah a lot of places are way marked up, but that doesn't offend me too much.
Are you talking about Billy Galaxy? Man the place is cool, very tight spaces, but spendy. Worth a look though I usually say.
Nope.,,he advertises his shop on Craigslist tho. I'll add that one to the list. Thanks for the heads up
No prob. Kirkland, was that Amazing Heroes?
You know I tried double checking but I'm not seeing that place listed anymore on CL. Amazing heroes actually sounds right but it looks like a different building. Did they move?
Haha the guy who ran it was like a mixture between Comic book guy and Sheldon with all their winning personality traits.
I don't know, but I remember hearing stories of people having bad experiences there. In any case if you come across a place you are unsure about, someone here will probably let you know if the place is worth a quick run through or not.
Yeah. The original owner was an awesome guy, who actually sold imports (whenever he and his wife would go visit her family in Japan, he'd load up a couple of suitcases full of stuff to sell), treated you like a person, and actually had a schedule. Got all sorts of Godzilla and Ultrakaiju back then.
Now, with the new owner...yup.
One TR topspin and kup at 185th target.
Anybody here planning on going to cyberfest in august?
Nope...I was there for the last 2 years and do not feel like making the trip to there. I usually help a fellow Oregonian who is an artist and we have to setup at 8 which means leaving Portland no later than 5 am. Also, we had to pack up gear for a panel for both years.
