Heroes....in Vaughn..WOW!
« on: February 23, 2017, 09:21:55 PM »

I recently have been in Vaughn for business and drive by the Heroes store daily so I decided to stop in today.  I was amazed at the inventory and size but WOW WHY in the world are they charging such ridiculous prices!? How do they survive? In the picture below every single figure was a min. of $60.....these go for $5 at Toy Shows. I just wanted to rant, quite disappointed at the over pricing, and ya I know don't shop there blah blah blah but this is ridiculous it's funny.

60$?!?!?!   Yeah I pick those up at shows/ebay (as part of other groups) to give my nephews something to open, since they are generally cheaper then what you can buy on the shelves.  Sounds like they will be moved to the back room storage after a long time of plugging those shelves.

Yeah, I went into this store maybe a couple years ago. Was looking for NECA Planet of the Apes figures before I knew whether or not TRU would carry them. Their prices were so high I could import them myself from BBTS, pay the shipping and taxes and customs and come out slightly cheaper than buying from Heroes. Needless to say I passed and waited for TRU, and luckily they brought most of them in.

I also asked if they carry sideshow or hot toys and the two people working there had no idea what I was talking about and they had to call the owner or manager on the phone to get an answer.  :crazy:

They also have a bunch of trading cards priced like it was still the height of the trading card boom in the early 90s. I honestly have no idea how they make money. Anyone who knows collecting would see their prices are insane.

Mind boggling.

I'm still shocked at the 59.99 price tags on an Ep 1 Jar Jar...also, the google reviews reflect the same experience I had. Seems like a front for something more.
