    The displays they have set up throughout the store were fantastic. I was that nerd walking around pointing out things and giving the history on it to friends. Was there for Greg Proop's podcast.

    Creo que esta un poco viejo y mal organizado, aunque si se encuentran cosas coleccionables no vale tanto la pena
