"Ever since we started Fanboys, we wanted to be more than just a toy store. We have always looked for ways to mobilize our fandoms to make an impact in our community. This year we want to find different initiatives to make a difference in the lives of those who need a little extra support. 'Socks for the homeless' is our first initiative of the year to do just that," says Cesar Gamez, Marketing Director for Fanboys Marketplace. "Our collectors genuinely care about making meaningful contributions in our community."

About Fanboys

Fanboys Marketplace began in 2018 as Fanboys Comic Con, a series of pop culture conventions that took place at local shopping malls. When COVID-19 forced Fanboys to pause events in 2020, the company opened a storefront along South Hulen Street in Fort Worth to allow vendors to continue selling their collectibles, toys, comics and other pop culture inspired novelties during the pandemic.

Fanboys recently signed a 10-year lease on a new headquarters and distribution center located near Ridgmar Mall slated to open in 2023. They opened a restaurant, Fanboys Grill, at the end of 2022 located off of West 7th Street in Fort Worth and is the Official Toy Store of the Dallas Mavericks. Voted Best Toy Store by Fort Worth Magazine and Gold Winner of Best Collectibles Store in DFW by Dallas Morning News in 2021 and 2022. Fanboys has six retail locations in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Find out more about Fanboys at or on Facebook and Instagram.
