    Hello Calgary Fan Force!

    Some of you might have seen our tables at the recent Comic & Toy shows in Calgary, but for those of you who don't know about us, we are a local Calgary Action Figure & Collectible business that specializes in importing all the rare and cool schwag Stateside up here to us Cannucks!

    Anyway, we will be in and around as many Comic & Toy Shows as we can so we hope to see you all around. For those of you interested in hearing more about we do, please read on: :)

    Myself and two roommates put this little business together as a hobby - we all have full time jobs so we aren't out to make a living off of this little project. We often find ourselves selling items we have obtained online or in shops across the country for COST. I stress that we aren't here to become millionaires.

    We want to get good stuff to the collectors and fans without having to pay inflated pricing. Our prices reflect what WE PAID for an item, not current ebay prices - eg. last week we sold a Target Lava Vader for $60 CDN - the current price on ebay is $100.00 U.S. One week previously we sold an Unleashed Darth Maul for $85 CDN, which was our cost getting it up here after U.S. exchange rate and shipping. We also sold a McFarlane Collector's Club Exclusive Lotus Angel for $50.00 CDN - the last ebay auction on this figure ended at $127 U.S.!!!

    All 3 of us are in debt and broke due to the little business venture but it's part of a hobby which we all enjoy and we find it very rewarding to support local collectors and fans such as ourselves!

    We look forward to doing business in Calgary!

    Thanks!
