    Kansas City gets a brick and mortar store! - Opening Day Pics

    Timewalker Toys will be opening up 01 July, in Overland Park (a city in the Kansas City area).
    Looking forward to this so much, that I drove by and snapped some pics.

    9349 West 87th Street Overland Park, KS 66212

    That's outstanding. You stay out of there, now.

    It's about a 6-7 hour drive away for me, but I do so much business with Steve and Margaret that I'm definitely going to make the trip down there.

    I had a lot of fun looking around the new shop, most impressive. Got to meet the owners, Steven and Margaret Allen. Very nice folks.

    The layout is visually engaging, seeing so many figures together and being able to examine them up close. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. This on the first day, with more to develop as the shop settles in. Quite a few people came thru, while I was there. I had a wonderful time, picked up some things, and look forward to many more trips there.

    Very nice looking shop and it really does make me miss being able to walk into shops like that myself. Wish them all the best.

    I like the layout on how the boxes are displayed. Like entering into a book store
    I'd imaging myself spending hours and hours in the shop browsing around and talking to the owners (and buying something of course!). Good stuffs!

    I'll be in K.C. in a few weeks for a short stop before a family vacation. I'd love to stop in if I can find the time while I'm in town.

    I'm nowhere near there but I have been buying from them online for sometime. Good folks and excellent customer service. Happy for them-looks great!

    Here in Australia, we can't always get the big sized items...

    I agree, it has a bit of a "bookstore" feel. We talked a bit about an old militaria and related hobby store in KC, years ago, 'The King's Crown'. Turned out that Steve would talk his parents into taking him there, as a young man. The Allens are much friendlier than the owner of that store, which is a big plus.

    I know that area well where the store is, my old stomping grounds! Too bad I am one state over in CO now. Will definitely have to stop in on my next visit "home". There's some great restaurants along 87th. Good luck and great looking shop!

    Was able to stop in there myself on Friday and met both Steve and his wife. Great people! It's nice to have a local place again, since GSTG left town. I bought a KP nude and COO models body and have already made plans to return for more. Definitely worth the trip if you are local or nearby.
    Did you see anything? No Lord Helmet I did not see you playing with your dolls again! GOOD!

    I'm going to be down in KC area next Tuesday (August 25th) for the specific purpose of going to Timewalker. If any other OSWers are in the area and want to meet up send me a pm.

    Re: Kansas City gets a brick and mortar store! - Opening Day Pics

    Got back from my trip to Overland Park, KS yesterday, and I have to say I was very impressed with the store. The displays are great, and has a wide variety of figures representing most of the major players. I had to really curb my enthusiasm from going crazy and picking up more stuff than I had intended; once you see this stuff in person, even things I didn't have an interest in, I was very tempted by.
    Had a chance Monday to spend a few hours talking with Steve about all aspects of the hobby, and then again on Tuesday. I also got to spend a couple of hours with both Steve and Margaret on Tuesday. I have to say these are two of the nicest people I have ever met, and very generous with their time. I feel fortunate to have taken the time to go down to the Kansas City area, and to have been able to spend the time with these two very interesting and dedicated people. I wish them all the luck with this business venture. If you ever get a chance to get to the area, you owe it to yourself to check this place out.

    Ever since Timewalker brick & mortar store opens in Overland Park, I've found myself buying a lot more figures there than I normally buy online. Steve is so nice to talk to. Highly recommended! Support local business!

    I bought Zhao Yun, Liu Bei, Kangxi, and Qin Shi Huang from Steve

    Nice collection, chipgau. Steve and Margaret have displayed many figures in such a nice fashion, that I find myself tempted by figures I've never considered collecting before. Like you say, it's a real pleasure visiting there.
