Season 2, Episode 13
A customer tries to sell a gaming system with a twist. Ming buys another piece of his childhood.
Comic Book Men returns to AMC February 2016.
A seller comes into the Secret Stash with a custom-made case resembling R2-Q5 (a droid briefly seen in Return of the Jedi) which houses an Xbox 360, a projector, and some HDMI ports. Unwilling to buy the case outright, Walt gets the seller to agree to a consignment deal. Later, another seller brings in his collection of Garbage Pail Kids cards. Though Walt has no interest in the cards for the store, Ming recalls them as “a piece of my childhood” and buys them for himself. Additionally, two female customers (in homemade Dr. Who costumes they’re testing out for Comic-Con) purchase copies of Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1 and #2. And finally, following a spirited game of foosball (in which Walt and Bryan defeat Ming and Michael), a seller brings in some Marvel Legends action figures. Already disappointed that his daughter has shown no interest in them, the seller is further disappointed to learn their value has dropped precipitously. Looking to cut his losses, he agrees to Walt’s offer for the lot.
