So this is the part where I’m supposed to tell you about our little corner of the galaxy. Let me start by saying that whenever I say “we” it’s really not much more than me, my wife, and a couple of buddies who are all adults that have refused to "grow up".
Ever since we were knee-high to Jawas, each of us in our own way was introduced to the likes of Star Trek, Star Wars, Logan’s Run, Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Marvel, DC, and darned near anything else associated with science fiction and fantasy. But after several years passed, something weird happened… we became adults. Some of us went to overpriced universities, others went on to have children and some, sadly enough, went on from marriage to divorce. But deep in each of our hearts, our “Inner Geek” remained intact. Today, though we are adults, we regularly go to movies, prop parties, sci-fi conventions, play D&D, love our video games, adore our action figures and our true passion, collecting movie props and memorabilia.
Here at Argon Empire we build, purchase, and collect movie props as a way to feel closer to the movies we love. Some people think it’s an odd hobby, but hey, it keeps us off the streets and out of trouble.
So we came together to bring you Argon Empire. We are now based out of Coppell, TX but we used to to have a brick & mortar store in Tulsa, OK named Argon City. Our promise to you, our online friends, is two fold:
1st fold: Ever run down to your local Wal-Mart to pick up that last action figure to finish your collection only to find the usual, common peg warmers? We have been there ourselves. But after many years of scouting stores, learning shipment days and times, and becoming friends with the “action figure guy” at Toys R Us, we now have a high success rate in acquiring those hard to find pieces. So we offer them here at fair market value (again our prices are negotiable). Try to get THAT offer from any online auction site.
2nd fold: We want to bring your most beloved movies closer to you by offering movie props. Whether its laser guns, laser swords, horror pieces, or just about any prop that comes from a popular (or obscure) movie or television show, we will do our best to acquire it for your collection.
So come on in, sit back, crack open a cold one, and have a good time.
