PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already outlined my absolute love for all things Godzilla in the recently posted news about the website but as far as this news goes, I have to say that I am rather disappointed that the NYC outlet of this shop is not among the participants. I know that they have a sizable space based on what I saw in a video from “Free Comic Book Day” that our media friends in Nerd News Today posted a few weeks ago and think that they should be involved as well. To my fellow NYC Geek and Pop Culturists, I suggest you hit their Facebook Page (HERE) and demand that they assist with the takeover by the Big G. Thanks to Social Media balking, things do actually get addressed a lot more and that is all that I have to say about the matter. What do you folks think of this takeover and will you be visiting one of the stores nearest you if its possible to do so? Chime in down below.
