My husband and I were in Charlotte, NC on Saturday and decided to check out one of the many comic book stores in the area. We’d never been to any and would’ve travelled to all of them if we could’ve, but due to our day’s schedule, had to settle for 1.
Since our purpose that day was to add to our Kotobukiya collection, we searched on-line for the store that appeared to carry the most figures. We found exactly what we were looking for (and more) when we chose to visit “Rebel Base Comics and Toys.”
As soon as we entered the store, we were taken aback by the sheer massiveness of everything we saw. It was literally wall to wall toys and figures from vintage to brand new. There were 6” Dr. Who Doctors, Star Wars battleships, Godzilla, Transformers, Pop! Funko (including Pop! Movies and Pop! Heroes), Final Fantasy VII characters, and the list goes on.
There were also several of the Kotobukiya Bishoujo statues we came looking for, including two we’d never seen previously at retail.
Besides toys, we found cabinets stocked full of some of the latest comic book series, including several back issues of my recent favorite, “Wonder Woman DC Universe Rebirth.”
We also found older and bargain comics neatly organized inside of boxes throughout the store.
After an hour of searching the place from high to low, our time in Rebel Base Comics was coming to an end. We had a nice conversation with the twosome running the store, made our purchases, took several pictures, and left.
As we drove away, we discussed the fact that we would definitely have to visit again. After all, we hadn’t just found a great Charlotte resource for collectibles, but one of the most exciting comic book stores we’ve been in yet.
