Amok Time began officially in the summer of 1992. What started as a way to pay for a Law/Education Degree led to owner Paul James Lazo being swayed to the “Dark Side”. Pursuing the glamorous life, That's a joke kid's, selling vintage Star Wars, Super-Hero and Monster Memorabilia, Paul realized at an early age what collectors have a need for. As with many small business success stories, Amok Time started small. Home grown from a bedroom in his parents house, then a warehouse, then a small store, then a larger store, then breaking down walls of surrounding stores, then the move to a retail location of respectable size, then moving to a larger retail location of even larger size. Thru years of diligence and customer respect Amok Time is New York’s largest collectible super store.
