    Currently the only toys out in Hong Kong that heven't been spotted at US retail yet are Cybertron Nemesis Breaker and the first wave of the 3" Titaniums.

    Yea, I thought the 6'' titaniums came out myself in China. Well, I guess I'll see what I can find. On my way now. Thanks.

    There is a difference between "toy officially available in large quantities in Hong Kong" and "small number of fully packaged samples prematurely available from the same kind of stores that sell unfinished test shots".

    See here:

    The Cyber Key should be self-explanatory.

    So, in other words: If you're interested in buying potentially stolen items, you might have a chance of buying the 6" Titaniums in Hong Kong. If you want to buy officially released items, they're not out yet.

    I'm in to hugging Nevermore, personally.

    If you want those "test shot" type of places, expect to bring some cash with you.
