The End of the Earth

The brick and mortar store that is. The earth is a collectible toy store in Cincinnati Ohio that has been around for a long time. I have made a few purchases from them on their online store. The main benefit they had over the other dealers is that they are located in the exact same city that Kenner was. Because of this they have uncovered many rare and mint employee items over the years. I always hope sometime I would get a chance to visit, but they have decided to close their doors and deal only online. The same thing happened with Intergalactic Trading Company in Florida. I visited this store in the early 90’s on a family trip and bought the first of my vintage Star Wars figure collection. They closed up their store a couple of years ago and moved to online and conventions only. A member at rebelscum made one last visit. These are some pictures that he took. The thread can be read on rebelscum
Here is a link to the website of The Earth It is rumored they will be doing a complete redesign of their site. Which is much needed. It looks like something out of the late 90’s.

The last picture is of particular interest. It shows a box flat for the X-Wing toy with the Revenge of the Jedi logo. Several boxes were made up with the Revenge logo before the movie was changed to Return of the Jedi. They were never shipped to stores with the Revenge title.
