    Yes sure pm me with his info and I can point him in the right direction. I'm also preparing a clearout of some of my TF's so let me know what you're after and if I've got it you can have it.

    Hi All,

    I’m parting with some of my TF’s just to have a clear out. I’m not putting these on ebay or anything related for a while yet.

    I'm posting this here to be relevant to people who are based in my vicinity.

    I don’t need to cash just the space and for a fair few of these I’m not expecting mega returns or anything like that.

    It’s preferable that you live in Asia to reduce shipping costs (I’ll be mailing them personally) but whatever works works.

    I’ve organized the below according to status namely MISB, MIB, Loose etc.

    Please feel free to ask any questions related to this. This is my first time doing this so I appreciate that there will be some trepidation in buying from a relative unknown but I can assure you I’m for real and for anyone interested in buying I’d be happy to talk via phone or whatever makes you feel I’m for real.

    I’m not putting any expected prices on here, just make me an offer and if it’s reasonable it yours.

    MISB

    Armada Demolishor (pre-formatted)
    Armada Demolishor (post-formatted)
    Universe SE Overkill
    Universe SE DragStrip
    Armada Blurr
    ROTF Leader Megatron

    MIB or Mint & Reboxed

    Energon Optimus Prime
    Energon Megatron (missing the missile)
    Energon Tidal Wave (Japanese Transparent version)
    Armada Scavenger
    Armada Hotshot
    Armada Red Alert
    Armada Sideswipe
    Armada Thrust
    Armada Megatron
    Armada Prime, Jetfire, Overload (Jet fire is loose and missing minicon)
    BW2 Lio Convoy & Galvatron
    Universe DepthCharge (shark gun missing tail)

    Loose but complete

    Armada Thundercracker
    ROTF Blazmaster
    ROTF Breakaway
    ROTF Voyager Ratchet
    ROTF Voyager Prime
    ROTF Voyager Megatron
    ROTF Autobot Whirl
    Movie 1 Leader Desert Brawl

    Apart from Whirl & Thunder all have bio cards available.

    Sure, Wanchai and Causeway Bay are best. Sugar Street in Causeway Bay has a TF Warehouse run by ToyZone where you can get loadsa MISB and boxed oldies.

    WanChai has the new stuff at good prices too.

    Hey thanks for the tip! What I'm actually looking for are the Alternity Nissan GTR and Fairlady...and perhaps anything you can suggest that would never be available here in the US.

    Yo.

    Sorry I missed your HK trip. I was in Shanghai.

    Seems that Australia has PowerCore already. Those are the next things to keep eyes peeled for!!

    Stayed for 2 days (12-14) & made my way to Macau. You guys have all these wonderful toy shops all clustered up at one area so it really saves me time & effort from travelling extensively. :thumbs2: 

    I'll see if we can touch base on my next visit. ;)

    Update PowerCore Combiners are now in HK. Rolling out across the stores.

    The two combiners, and three single figures can be picked up for a total of US$70. Not bad.

    Best places to go are in WanChai, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok.

    MK has many large toy stores but they're mixed items, not all TF but has many shops.

    Causeway bay has one area which is a TF warehouse, sometimes you'll see gems in there.

    Ani-Com 2010

    Not sure if this post would fit under the news forum, so I'm putting it here under the Hong Kong Sightings.

    The annual Ani-Com convention is running this weekend in HK. Here are some pics that are Transformers-related.

    A partial shot of the Hasbro booth.
    [​IMG]


    Here's Animated Prime. This one has a performer inside, unlike the G1 Prime costume.
    [​IMG]



    Toys R Us in HK has the reissued Blaster and the Cyclonus/Galvatron/Rodimus 3-pack in stock. I think they may also have the reissued Seacons in stock.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Toys R Us have a promo for Ani-Com: buy HK$500 worth of stuff, they'll give you Nebular Starscream, Interrogator Barricade, Legends of Cybertron Starscream and a pack of Transformers Monopoly cards.

    [​IMG]



    Vintage Kabaya candy toys.
    [​IMG]


    Here are samples of the assembled candy toys.
    [​IMG]


    The booth selling the candy toys also has other Transformer stuff.
    [​IMG]



    Coca-Cola has a booth at the con, too, for their half-frozen Coke beverages. They needed more oomph than what the polar bear usually brings.

    I'm going to HK in Winter and I wonder, do Japanese Animated toys get released in stores there?
