Life with a new retail location (and the magic it brings)

Hello RedFive Nation! I'm back with another blog post! This time its all about living with a retail location vs just being online and the subtle joys it brings. I just had another one, like a moment ago. A young customer (maybe 10 or 11) came in to look around, and after a bit he walked out, only to return with a dime he found outside. He wanted to make sure that we or a customer of our didn't lose it by accident. This is what it's about. The power of children. I knew we would have customers young and old, but I wasn't expecting the magic, that is a group of kids coming in and being "kids", looking around,...

Comic Con, Comic Con, Comic Cons 2021

Ok...I know what you're thinking. Most of the Cons aren't until summer & fall! We aren't "closing in".  Yes, the major Con's like SDCC, NYCC, ECCC and such aren't until later in 2021, but your smaller, regional Cons' start happening in the spring, well before the majors. They don't pack the same punch as the bigs, but they will definitely scratch that Convention itch so many of us have right now.

Gravity Falls Funko Pops... HOTTER than a hand with 6 fingers!

In the world of Funko Pops we see may lines and fandoms come and go... From the big blockbuster movies to the far reaches of TV and anime.

The gang of Dipper, Mabel, Grunkle Stan and others are as popular now as they have ever been and the prices on their Pops reflect that. Just look at Grunkle Stan, when he came out, he was pretty much a shelf warmer, easy to find and not nearly as sought after as Dipper & Mabel. Now... he the big dog on the the block, commanding triple digits on most sites. This is...

The Mandalorian Season 2 is almost here...

Hello there! Welcome to RedFive's first ever blog post! And I'm excited to talk about the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian! We are just a little over a month away before we get to continue on Din DJarin's adventures with Cara Dune, IG-11, Greef Carga and, of course, the Child. This season we have been teased with some possible new additions that will add dimension and depth to this story. The first addition I'm looking forward to is Ahsoka Tano. She will be played by Rosario Dawson for the 1st ever live-action version of this character. Obviously, her story line is well guarded. Will she be the force sensitive helper to Din on his quest to reunite the Child...
