At Northmen Collectibles we are collectors ourselves first and foremost. The very first figures I collected were the old Playmates Ninja Turtles but nowadays my focus has been pretty much anything and everything Star Wars. I own figures from each of the manufacturers represented on our website. Some of my favorites right now are being put out by Mezco; their One:12 line is shaping up to be one of the single best lines ever produced. I mostly collect in the 1/12 scale but will venture out into the 1/6 space every once and a while to snatch up something I really like.
While there are some great comic shops across Canada a lot of them do not ship online, do not make all of their inventory available online or do not allow you to pre-order. We have also noticed over years of collecting that more often than not you end up better off importing your figures from the US. When the CAD is on par to the USD this does not end up hurting too badly but as recent events have shown importing very quickly becomes unaffordable when you are being hit with handling fees and import taxes on top of exchange fees. We want to offer Canadians, specifically the Toronto market with our local pick up option, a place that collectors can reliably pre-order their figures at a fair price. We might not always be the cheapest, but we can guarantee you we will never be the most expensive.
