There was a comic shop in Germany that carried quite a few, two actually, and one here in Olympia that has a bunch, but they over price everything. I pretty much stopped going there. The last purchase I made, they had thrown away all the protective paper around the pieces and didnt even re-tape the box, oh and they threw away the shipper. That was on a piece I pre-ordered. Plus they screwed up my pull list several times.

I was at an LCS that had 7 on display. They have more at their other locations around town.

Oh yeah, living in New York there are actually a lot of dealers that is how I got into the hobby. I walked into my LCS and saw what became my first statue., the first PF Spiderman ..I quickly purchased him and did some research on sideshow and was amazed on what they did and carried. I Was hooked on Statues from that day forward.

The only time my LCBS will have newer statues is if someone has a liquidation sale, like when DC Direct does that. They will be a few statue that they think will sell and will offer them at a good price.
They do have a case with statues in but the majority of the ones in there are only when someone brings in a statue looking for either cash or in store credit. Occasionally they will have some Sideshow statues brought in but the majority that they have are either Bowen busts, DC direct busts and Batman Black and White.

There was a collectibles shop in Big Bear California that had PFs. I walked in there cause I saw how cool it looked from the outside never expecting to run into Sidehow PFs.

I don't know if that shop still carries them though.

Bedrock City (here in Houston) carries Sideshow and Hot Toys. I've seen other stores in Texas do the same. I remember walking into another LCS at a shopping center (not in Houston) where there was a pretty big SS display. Looked cluttered as hell and most of the pieces had a crap-load of dust,but the owner wanted top-dollar for every one of them.

Also, if any of these stores have grails (SS, Hot Toys, etc), they'll definitely charge eBay prices.

I'm in Los Angeles area there are literally too many that do. Sideshow is based out of Thousand Oaks which is in the west valley and close to L.A. There's a place called Frank & Sons in City of Industry and that place is filled with Sideshow and Hot Toys. A true mecca of the hobby.

Alamo City Comics in San Antonio (I think the large statues are things that customers sell to the store, rather than inventory that the owner had planned on carrying):

Hate to hijack a semi old thread, but yes my lCS carries a lot of sideshow product. They have morphed from a strictly comics and card games shop into comics/POPs/statues/board games/pinball store.

I've always found it interesting that they could pull off selling SS at profit. Though I got back into this hobby by buying their Venom PF off them at roughly the same price I would have gotten from SS themselves.

It's not hard to meet expenses, they're everywhere.
