    I will be in San Francisco and it's surrounding areas in about a month or so. I was wondering if anyone who lives/regularly travels/has been out there knows of good places to buy rare/new transformers and gundams. I'm particularly interested in some classics that maybe I can get at retail (I dunno why but this seems like something I could get in Chinatown, or maybe at least a KO) and Robot Damashii Gundams.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'd try Japantown in SF. That's probably your best bet.

    There's a store, I forgot what it was called, in the Kabuki. It was downstairs beneath the Kotobukiya bookstore, I think.

    They're rather overpriced though.

    they opened a small shop, i forgot the name in stonestown. it's a hobby shop that is another branch from the one in japantown. there really isn't much at chinatown as they are a bit pricey too. if you are willing to drive a bit away from san fran, you can hit up tanforan and there is a small store that sells figures. some are overpriced, some are fairly decent.

    I was in SF last year on hols.
    Japantown is probably your best bet for Robot Damashii. Chinatown has a few KOs.
    Also Jefferys Toys on Market St. More Hasbro stuff there but a couple of Bandai products i think.

    I'm not sure if it's still there but Cards & Comics Central had a lot of stuff. Normally overpriced though.

    Their address is:

    5424 Geary Boulevard
    San Francisco, CA 94121

    Wow thanks so much guys, this has been a great help.

    I was definitely hitting up Japantown anyway (mmm sushi), so now I'm gonna look forward to it even more.

    As everyone else said, Japantown.

    I'll let you know some other locations after this weekend ;) .

    Just kidding. There's not much else out here really. If you manage to find Blurr, I'll just have to hate you.
