    Just thought i might start a topic where people could add the sci fi stores that stock star wars toys and memrobilia in their town, so if you're going to another town for whatever reason you'll know where to pop in and see whats on offer. I'll start you off with Halifax and just add to it....


    Okay then Halifax:

    Sci Fi Studio in the Piece Hall- This shop has loads of star wars toys and while it doesnt have products in as fast as the online retailers it does generally get stocks of everything hasbro imports from the states. Plus they do a reservation system so if you want a rare piece they'll put it to one side when it comes in and ring you to let you know its arrived

    Comic Shop again in the Piece Hall, stocks your usual range of Star Wars Comics and a limited selection of back issues

    Screen Scenes- at the far end of market street. This is a more general film shop, but does have a limited range of figures, however in my humble opinion its a little overpriced and they dont get much new stock in, however if you're looking for an older figure it might be worth a look. Also do some autographs

    The Old Collectors Toy Shop- the oldest collectors shop in Halifax this is by North Bridge and has a small selection of vintage star wars

    In Liverpool we got Forbidon Planet and Worlds Apart. I can't really remember much about them though since I havn't visited them in ages though due to a lack of need to go their.
