Retr-O-Rama Collectibles Show
Frankenstein will be there. So will Batman, Spider-Man, Dr. Zaius, and Yongary the Monster from the Deep. If it's old fashioned, fantastic, and a little bit kitschy, chances are it's going to be represented. From toys to comic books to movie posters, Retr-O-Rama celebrates the science fiction and fantasy of yesteryear. Co-founder Dan Tuchmann loves classic toys and collectibles, but he "found that dealers were growing tired of all the rules, regulations, and fees associated with eBay and they really missed the days of in person shows.” That's why Retr-O-Rama was created, and today it serves as place not just for buyers to make informed purchases, but for like-minded individuals to share their passion, make friends, and start arguments over whether "Biff!" or "Bopp!" is a more appropriate sound effect when throwing a punch.
