Crossing paths but not connecting in late 1999 as Pete was a regular customer of the Niles Ohio Toys R Us and Travis was the TRU tour guide and toy demonstrator, they would eventually join forces years later creating Doomsday Toys & Comics. The toy and comic book store is unique for many reasons including it's wide variety of merchandise including vintage and new toys, comics, posters, card packs from the 1970s to current both sports and non-sports cards, Funko Pops, pop culture clothing and jewelry, DVD's, Blu-rays, and video game consoles and games!
If you’re looking to recapture those childhood memories, share them with your kids, or are just looking for a fun shopping experience come check us out. Another fun fact, some of our fixtures are from Toys R Us, so in many ways we are literally built from Toys R Us.
But that's not where the story ends, Pete also designed and created Arcadia. This is a room inside Doomsday Toys & Comics that will take you back in time to the awesome 1980's & 1990's video arcade era! The black-lit room features over 50 games that are free for Doomsday customers to play.
Doomsday Toys & Comics is also heavily promoted by Ming Chen who has literally said "It's his favorite toy store." Ming is of course best known to toy and comic book fans worldwide for co-starring in AMC's Comic Book Men TV series with film guru Kevin Smith, Ming also co-stars in Kevin Smith's new film Clerks III.
