We want to have something like what we see in foreign movies. But, it seemed like there is no way we could have it if we cannot go abroad. Too bad because the Philippines does not have any of the items that we really want and it is so frustrating. And if we have, then it is too costly. We just cannot buy at that cost!
Why Abubot was established?
Mon Macutay, a collector as well as a geek, realized how hard it is to be like that, so he started Abubot. Our local items are not that favorable when it comes to quality, though not all the time. And these items can only be found in Amazon and ThinkGeek. Of course, we can also order online from these sites, however, it takes long for us to get it. And is it really practical to pay for a huge price, perhaps, dollars for freight? Well, it’s like it is not worth it.
Abubot was established because of a question, “why not open a LOCAL online geek store?” And since the owner is a collector of items from US, Japan, and other countries, he wants to be a source of these so that a ton of cash on US shipping can be saved and could be invested on collectibles perhaps. First and foremost, his goal was to offer out geek toys, games and other collectibles. And due to the demand, the rest followed. And that is what makes it today!
Almost all startup is difficult and Abubot is not exempted from such. However, they strived and after few months of hard work together with the team, the customer expectation was satisfied, though not perfect- well, no one is, in the first place. Abubot ang geek ng bayan offers geek toys and games including action figures and more. The items could be bought at a least price if you have an abubot discount code.
