New Discovery

Today, I discovered a comic store that is only 15 min drive away from home! I can't believe I didn't know it exists for the longest time, apparently they've been here since 1992! WTF?! I know I haven't been collecting for that long (~2-3 years), but how could I have let this comic store go unknown. I stumbled upon this discovery while frantically searching for a comic store close by to see if I can grab the new Marvel Select Juggernaut (I want it soooo baaad!!!). The store is called Planet X and the one closest to me is a little store packed with many goodies. The feeling I had when I entered this shop was the same as when I entered the toy stores in Hong Kong, it was THAT good! That overwhelming feeling when toys are all over the place and even after browsing the shop for a good 20 minutes or so, I still haven't seen everything there. I noticed they had a lot of old toys too so that's pretty cool as I love hunting for gems haha. Prices are alright, some of the stuff that are available in retail are no doubt a bit more expensive, but I think most of the prices are reasonable. The owner is a cool guy who I chatted with for a while, he even showed me a custom Marvel Universe Punisher he was working on as well. Unfortunately, they were sold out of the MS Juggernaut, but I did pick this Thing up haha

I see many of my future hauls coming from this place now!



  1. Haha yeah, going to go back on payday lol!

    The paint on this looks nice from afar, but when I examined the details on him, some parts around his eyes were not painted making him look like he got a bruised eye lol, I guess I would just have to fix that myself.

  2. Glad to hear you found a new place for toy hunting..Haha!!
