Collectable figurines from films, TV shows and comics are now on sale in Weston-super-Mare, after a shop-owner opened a store in just a few days.
John Tancock has opened Poptastic Collectables in Orchard Street.
He is selling Funko Pops, which are toys from famous franchises.
Mr Tancock said: “I originally refused to buy them because they are so collectable.
“For my birthday, I got a Buffy vampire, and I started my collection.
