Big B Comics stores aren’t just places where you can go to find your favourite new comic, toy, shirt or other cool item. Big B Comics is also the place to go when you need to part with your stuff! We are actively buying collections of all sizes if you have any of the following.
All comics 1989 and older
We will buy all comics from this era. Super-Hero titles like Spider-Man and Batman are the most popular (and therefore the ones that will get you the most $$$) but we also take Archies, War Comics, Horror Comics, Westerns, TV Comics, and everything else.
“How do I tell how old my comics are?”
Comics generally have no dates printed on the cover, but you can tell the date from the original cover price. Look for anything $1.00 and less.
“What about my comics from 1991 like Spawn and X-Men or this case of Malibu Comics I have?”
We do buy comics from 1990 to the present, but we are much more choosy. Most comics from the 1990s and 2000s have little collectible value and we, like most stores, are overstocked already. We’ll always look at your collection to see if there’s anything worth buying and if not, we will help you find worthwhile charities that would be happy to find good homes for your comics. Many hospitals, schools, and libraries do great work getting comics into the hands of children in need.
Did you know that many of the toys of your childhood are sought after by collectors all over the world? That box of Transformers you are saving for the grandkids might help you put junior through university instead! At Big B we pay top dollar for boys and girls toys from the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s! Action Figures, Dolls, Vehicles, Playsets and Castles, Model Kits, Train Sets – we’ll take it all! Whether you have items that are still sealed in the packaging or have been well-loved throughout your childhood, we want it and have experts on staff that can tell you all about them. Right now you will get the most money for:
- Any Super-Heroes from 1960 right to the present
- Transformers 1980s to present
- Power Rangers
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Star Wars 1970s to present
- Anime and Video Game tie-ins like DBZ, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, and Zelda
- Mego, COPS, MASK, G.I. Joe, He-Man, Centurions, Dino Riders, Starcom, WWF Wrestlers, REMCO, Dr. Who, Sectaurs, etc, etc. We love it all!
At Big B we offer a unique trade-in program for any of those graphic novels that you’ve probably realized you’re never going to read again. Clear some shelf space for the new additions! We will take just about any softcover graphic novels and we’ll pay you up to 25% of the cover price in store credit (15% in cash money). Bring your old books in any time – all of our staff are trained to buy them back. Please note that we take very little manga; please call ahead for more details.
Video Games & Systems
Games and Systems from all eras are in demand right now and there is a burgeoning collectible market for classic gaming. Some old games can be worth hundreds of dollars and we want to buy them all! We will take ANY working console game, system, or peripheral unit from Atari up. Most in demand right now are:
- NES (original Nintendo), Super Nintendo, and N64 systems and controllers
- Any game featuring Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, or Donkey Kong
- Any classic Role Playing Games
Things We Don’t Buy
Sports Cards. Sports Memorabilia. Pokemon, Magic, or Yu-Gi-Oh Cards. Fast Food Premiums.
There is a market for this stuff but we only buy items for which we have experts trained and ready. We’ll do our best to help you find an interested buyer.
Why Sell to Big B?
Parting with your treasured collectibles can be hard and we understand that. Maybe you spent a long time acquiring them or you have fond memories of your childhood growing up with them. Many thousands of dollars can be at stake and you want to get a fair deal. At Big B we are collectors and lovers of the collecting bug too and we have built a 30-year reputation of dealing with our clients with fairness and honesty. As the leading dealer of collectible comics in South Western Ontario and official advisors to the Overstreet Price Guide (the recognized standard for 40 years in the collectible comic market), we know the comic market inside and out. Our general manager is the owner of one of the largest and most well-represented vintage toy collections in Canada. We have on staff serious video game collectors who know games and the market inside and out. Basically, we know our stuff.
“So I have stuff to sell, what do I do now?”
We look at collections of old comics, toys, and video games by appointment only. For large collections, we will travel to you if that is what you prefer. Graphic Novels you can bring by any of our stores without an appointment, but always call ahead first as we may not be interested in buying depending on our current stock. All sellers will be required to show Photo ID.
