Updated: Oct 25, 2020
Nestled in the hills of North Jersey is Pandora's Box the newest place to find retro toys, comics and video games. This was a bit of a drive for me personally to get to but I had a good feeling about this place and it did not disappoint. As soon as you pull up to the store you know your at the right place with the front of it lined with vintage toy art cutouts and other memorabilia. When you walk in get ready experience time warp as you immediately get sent back decades with wall to wall vintage toys all new in the their original packaging and loose toys as well.The store is adequately sized and has so many genres to choose from new and old. In one section of the store you could be looking at some vintage Evel Knievel while 5 feet across from you there is some recent DragonBall Z figures. You can easily spend a couple of hours just walking around trying to look at everything they have. Just to give you an idea of some of the stuff they carry they have most major toy lines from 70's, 80's and 90's. They also have comic books loose and graded, video games and systems from the 80's up to recent and records. Some personal toy favorites of mine which they had some nice offerings for were Godzilla, Voltron, Star Wars, Transformers, TMNT, some anime figures including DBZ and NGE. I even noticed some baseball cards and loose and graded Pokemon cards. They had a vintage original sealed Boba Fett mail-away figure and some nice carded Star Wars figures. The owners were very friendly and happy to answer any questions. I came with my family and really enjoyed my visit. Needless to say I left with a few bags of toys. So do yourself a favor and check out Pandora's Box in Franklin, NJ, don't forget to tell them the Ragingeek sent you.
