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.


  1. Very cool my friend!Having your blurb and blog on display like that is beyond awesome!

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

  3. Cool. Have you seen my Rocketeer Review? I'll be posting more about all the ReAction figures I picked up in the near future.
