FYE - 2 days down, 1 to go

I've been hyping up the Grand Re-Opening of the FYE store at the Woodbridge Center in New Jersey. Well the event is finally here. The Grand Opening is a three day event, two of which have passed. Friday night there was an in-store DJ playing music and today was the big Costume Contest among other things. This new store is the first of the re-branded For Your Entertainment. FYE now carries a much wider selection of products than before. Not only do they have movies and music, but not they carry toys, collectables, t-shirts and a whole lot more.



Of course he toys and collectables are my favorite part of the new store.Check out all those ReAction figures. I so wish they made these figure 20-30 years ago. I bought a ton of these. Look for posts in the near future.


Check out my little blurb on the ReAction display. It's pretty cool to see my logo somewhere that I didn't have to post it myself.


I saw this turtle shell backpack in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles section, and the test on the product cracked me up. "Pick your mask & Ninja Tool..." The Turtles no longer use weapons, they use tools.


 I had a lot of fun hanging out with some of my friends today. Rose and Tony came out for the costume contest dressed as Dark Helmet and a Spaceball. My buddy Mike and Nick came out with them as well. Mike is the grumpy looking guy in the center.


Here's a shot of all the Cosplayers. I hope to post a video in the near future showing off all the costumes better. Some of the best ones don't show up well in this photo. There was a really great turn out for the contest and some really great outfits.


Gaston from Beauty & the Beast as well as Hot Mario.


This sign cracked me up, so I had to snap a quick picture. Tomorrow is the big Retro Toy Roadshow hosted by the guys from Toy Pizza. Hopefully we get a good crowd again tomorrow. I can't wait to see what people bring in to have appraised.

  2. Wow! There was only one FYE in Atlanta. I only went there a few times. It looks better than Blockbuster.

    2. I will check that out! Hey, do you mind if I use your photo of ReAction figures on the pegs as the cover photo on my group? I would give you proper credit, of course!
