Toy Shops

Post by Commander Clint on Mon Feb 13, 2017 2:24 pm

Thought I would start a list of toy shops where you can get your vintage toys, because I ran into a fellow collector yesterday morning and he started a new toy shop. cheers
Please add your favourite shops from around the globe. Once we get enough places listed, we'll create a master list.

Southern Ontario

The only one we have here in Victoria is Cherry Bomb Toys, its not a huge store but it has lots of vintage toys as well as a toy museum.

This is literally the only toy shop from where I've actually bought vintage figs. They were decently priced but I haven't been back in a couple of years.

Toy Tokyo in NYC was amazing but really overpriced.

Can't really add to that - but Jeff at Kool Stuff has stopped shipping his stuff. In store only now. Sad

Yeah it's pretty great. There's a place in Kitchener that has everything except the vintage line called J&J's Comics & Collectables. POTF2 till current. Pretty uninteresting lol. I think I did round out my EU set there though with a Kyle Kararn or a Thrawn.

I live in Southern Oklahoma (aka, Texoma)... about 10 minutes from Texas, right between Dallas and OKC. In the city, there is Toy Base 10, which is a really neat vintage toy store with a *ton* of everything from 1950 to modern toys. In Dallas there is Order 66 (McKinney, TX) and then Dallas Vintage Toys along with 6-7 other places that are pretty amazing. It's a great place (Dallas) to look for vintage toys.

Lucky you. Sounds awesome. I saw the Order 66 booth at Celebration Anaheim and they had loads.

If you do a search on 'Dallas Vintage Toys' in forums like Rebelscum or SWFUK you'll find a lot of information about them being seriously dodgy. Keep an eye out....

Yes, listen to Christian. Don't just search out DVT, but also the owner, Shaun Neinast.

He's had one of the worst reps in the hobby for 2 full decades now.

They're not that local to me, but for those in the area, I can recommend:
'All The Cool Stuff' 64 High Street, Fordingbridge, Hampshire SP6 1AX, United Kingdom. This shop is owned by Dave Tree who also organises the very successful 'Farthest From' vintage SW events.
'Automatic Comics' 17A Pickwick Road, Corsham, Wiltshire SN13 9BQ, United Kingdom. This shop is owned by Matt Booker who is also a reporter for 'Jedi News'.
These shops stock a mixture of vintage & modern SW along with other lines.

Nice post, always best to have a place to go to see the item first before you buy,

Just checked out Dark Matter Toys & Collectables yesterday because I happened to be working in London, Ontario, still 25km from the shop but close enough that I had to go.

That was a hell of a recommendation, Clint. The owner is friendly and he had several vintage Kenner items that I’d not seen in person before.

I spent a good chunk of change and mentioned how I heard about the shop (I’ll post those items in ‘latest picks’ when I get around to photographing them), he seemed almost sad to part with those pieces rofl .

This store has about 7 or 8 of Clint’s custom droids on display too, they look great in person. clapping

Glad you could check out the store.  Craig the owner, is a really nice guy.  That was where I traded the custom droids for beaters (plus I owed him for other deals), and where I traded my extra Canadian Paploo for the Canadian Wicket.
