    Wales gets ALL the cool stuff. Seriously. [LINK]

    From Star Wars figures to Action Man and Barbie, a treasure trove of old toys and games has been discovered in a shop which has been closed for years.

    The Frank Beech Toy Shop first opened more than 70 years ago and was well-known in Holywell in North Wales for its vast array of toys and popular window displays.

    But in 2009 it closed its doors to the public, bringing to an end many decades of service since its opening by Frank Beech in the 1940s.

    Amazingly, though, the contents of the store remained untouched and an auction house has now recovered 120 pallets of toys dating back to the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

    These include boxes of Star Wars figures, Action Man and accessories, trains, Dinky cars, Timpo toys and Britains soldiers, dolls, tinplate and plastic, Airfix and many board games.

    120 pallets? Holy crap, no wonder the store went out of business, there was probably no place to even walk in there with so much stuff crammed into that little building! Maybe he should have been selling some of it rather than hoarding it.
