Timewalker Toys & Collectibles is planning to open its first retail location in Overland Park, Kansas. The store will be the first dedicated showroom for 1/6 scale collectible figures and statues in the Kansas City area.
TimewalkerToys.com is an established online retailer of 1/6 scale figures, accessories and vehicles. The web-based business has an international following, and has operated from the Kansas City area since 2003. Recent sales growth from new product lines and an expanding collector base has spurred the expansion into brick and mortar retail.
"The 1/6 scale hobby covers so many interests now - from military to historical to pop culture figures. We need a space where people can see the amazing details in these figures up close," said owner Steven Allen.
The new store will feature a showroom area where local collectors and hobbyists can browse the latest releases from Hot Toys, Sideshow, ThreeZero, DID, Soldier Story and many more popular brands.
For many collectors, 1/6 scale is a hands-on hobby. The store will also feature a work area where collectors can gather to share and receive expert advice on figure assembly and customization.
"This will be a learning experience for us. We want become a hub for the local collecting community and grow the store into a unique Kansas City destination," said Allen.
The store will be located at 9349 West 87th Street in the Louisburg Shopping Center, and is expected to open this summer.
