Amok Time is a toy and comic book store located in Hicksville, New York, U.S.A. operated by Paul James Lazo, and in operation since 1992.

In 2008, Amok Time began their first foray into manufacturing collectibles, and attempted to continue building from the mantle established by Majestic Studios years prior with prototyping the Original Series line of 1/6 scale collectible figures for Athena, Lieutenant Boomer, Commander Cain, Colonel Tigh and Lucifer[1], but ultimately failed to deliver full production runs on these pieces. Their license for these offerings was scheduled to end in 2010, and was not renewed.[2]
