Back in the 1940’s, a man needed a place where he could be a man. Somewhere he could loosen his tie and order himself a glass of JTS Brown neat. Maybe he could look through the pages of Wink Magazine or lay a double sawbuck on the number three horse to show at the Aqueduct. It was a different time when being a man meant you ate your meat bloody as hell and you shaved with a straight razor.
While times have changed, a man still needs a place where he can wander in and stand without judgment. Phat Collectibles is just the store for the modern man. A guy can go in here and ask a question like, “You got a Gollum action figure for sale? No, not the Peter Jackson one. I’m looking for the one from the Ralph Bakshi version.”
While I’m not much of a collector, from my uneducated standpoint, I noticed a few things that Phat Collectibles needs to be commended for. First, the store is huge and well stocked. Whether your pleasure is a full-sized Ewok, some comics, or an action figure, this is your place.
Second, the prices seem to be on the low side. Collectibles have been a runaway market the last few years. However, Phat Collectibles’ prices are reasonable.
Finally, there is zero attitude here. The owners stay away from that comic book store intellectual stereotype.
