"Things From Another World" Crashes To Earth
To anyone that lives in California, or any other part of the world that owns a television for that matter, knows the word “Hollywood.” For decades, the word has been a main staple for entertainment. In the city of Universal lies a little theme park by the name of Universal Studios. The park is the home of many movie and television filming and features an inside look at how movies are created, as well as some interesting attractions of its own. Located just outside of this utopia of sights, sits City Walk; a large shopping center featuring a variety of stores and restaurants to choose from.
Just inside this shopping mecca is a true treasure by the name of “Things From Another World (TFAW)”. You honestly can’t miss this amazing little shop, as it boasts a gigantic space ship smashed into the side of the building. Inside lies an amazing array of collectibles, toys, statues, figures, comics, books, posters, and many other little gems to feed your hunger for out-of-this-world possessions. The store offers a seemingly endless amount of choices, such as DC, Marvel, Ex-Machina, Star Wars, Alien, Terminator, Batman, Predator, Sin City, X-Men, Watchmen, Star Trek, and many more. The atmosphere of this store is truly unique. Circular in shape, the design of this building offers one the feeling of being completely surrounded by this marvelous selection of goods. Each wall of the store hosts a number of diverse items, and even the tops of the shelves sit an arrangement of different figures to observe. In the middle hangs a giant UFO, about 10 feet in diameter, with a life size R2-D2 directly underneath it.
Things From Another World has just celebrated their 30th Anniversary, opening the store in 1979 making it one of the oldest collectible venues of today. With 30 years of service well under their belt, they have definitely earned their bragging rights in a world becoming conquered by internet merchant sites such as Ebay, Craig’s List, and Amazon. They refuse to admit defeat, and continue to offer a great selection of quality products, at excellent prices with amazing service. Their employees are knowledgeable and very friendly, and always try to give you the tools you need to become a great collector. Stop by TFAW, look around, and enjoy one of the last true collectible stores of today.
