In Korea, the popularity of the Marvel Universe and its myriad of colorful characters is definitely high, thanks to the growing number of Marvel fanatics of this country. In the quiet corner of Megabox (one of the most popular movie theater chains in Korea) inside COEX, there sits Marvel Collection Enter Six. Four months after the opening of the world’s very first official Marvel store inside Park Avenue (located near Wangsimni and Hanyang University station), this official Marvel store had a second opening in June at Megabox COEX. Inside, you can basically find every Marvel character you could think of: Avengers heroes including the Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and so on, along with the heroes from the Guardians of Galaxy, the most recent Marvel hit Dr. Strange, X-men and Daredevil. Here is a list of Marvel related products you can purchase at the store: Hot Toys figures, DVDs, original comic books, stationery, accessories, clothing, electronic accessories such as portable batteries and headphones, and even skateboards! And as if the awesomeness couldn’t stop there, this store even carries Marvel hero printed face masks. The hottest section here is the Hot Toy Zone where hyper-realistic figures of the Marvel characters are created right in front of you. The detail is amazing, to the point where slight wrinkles and intentional flaws and blemishes are visible. Watching a 1/6th scaled version of your favorite Marvel heroes indeed makes time pass quickly (the price is certainly on a high side, but the Marvel fanatics do not even flinch while shelling out 900,000 won for their favorite character). The most popular Hot Toy is the Iron Man Mark VII Sub-zero which features a meticulously created white suit.
