Fans of the cartoon classic Rick and Morty will love visiting this Alabama pop-up shop which will sell clothing to celebrate the show as well as other pieces of memorabilia. It will visit Birmingham on the 10th October before heading to Tuscaloosa, Montgomery and Auburn.
Whilst in Birmingham The Rickmobile will be parked up outside Sanctum Tattoos and Comics in Avondale. This is a big deal for the store, who will be celebrating their two-year anniversary in November. Indeed, it was one of the shop owners, Alex Hamilton who can be thanked for ensuring the Alabama pop-up shop happens. He reached out to the owners of the van, which is inspired by the Rick and Morty show (so much so that it is actually a giant Rick on wheels) when he was at the San Diego Comic-Con and it is that initial contact that helped secure the visit.
Sanctum will also be getting in on the act and will be stocking various pieces of merchandise for fans of the Rick and Morty show, including books, plushies, and pins. Seasick Records will also be on site selling soundtracks from the show. Tropicaleo, a Puerto Rican restaurant and bar nearby will also be celebrating the arrival of The Rickmobile with a specially crafted cocktail menu designed to celebrate the show. There will be Rick and Morty themed rums and cocktails. It seems that the Alabama pop-up shop is inspiring businesses all around who will be making it a great day out for fans of the show.
The Rickmobile, which features the blue haired scientist from the show, really is a sight when you see it drive down the freeway and Adult Swim, creators of the Rick and Morty Show do encourage fans to post pictures of it on social media. It sells exclusive collectables based on the show, so fans will really not want to miss out. It is worth noting that supplies of memorabilia can be limited and that huge queues can form when The Rickmobile comes into town and that sometimes they do have to turn people away because of time constraints. It might be worth getting there as early as you can to guarantee access to the store. You should also note that the Alabama pop-up store is unable to take card payments, so you will need to take cash with you.
