If you or someone in your life is into pop culture, cult movies, Disney, Marvel or the Star Wars franchise a visit to Heroes And More is probably in order.
Located in Wallsend, it almost feels like this is the shop that Batman built.
Figurines, costumes, comics and books, wallets, patches, caps, games, model cars, artworks – from Harry Potter, Doctor Who right through to anime – it is all here.
The reason that we say Heroes And More is more than a store is because it is a passion.
Owned and operated by Simon and Mel, with the help of their family and friends, at the core of Heroes And More is a love for all things pop culture.
And, a desire to share this love!
With the vision for the project “taking form when Simon made an Iron Man suit. He dressed in this suit to make charity appearances around Newcastle, bringing smiles to fans and helping raise money for some important causes.”
So, if you are looking for merchandise, collectibles, a bit of fun, or a gift for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life, check out Heroes And More on-line or in-store and you just never know what (or who) you might find.
Oh, and just in time for the school holidays, Heroes And More is running a Create A Comic Strip competition!
All you have to do is head here, download the template and get drawing. Maybe you could create a comic about your fave visit to the store? Or maybe one about what your life would be like if you were a superhero?
Three winners, chosen by an impartial judge, will each receive a $10 gift voucher and every child that drops an entry (one per child) into the shop will receive a free Minifigure! Entries will also be hung on the Comic Strip Wall.
The competition kicks off this Saturday 26 September and runs until close of trade on Saturday 10 October. Winners will be announced the following week.
