    I'm heading to Hsinchu Taiwan next couple of weeks. Any recommendation which stores to visit? I am collecting mostly 3rd party, Masterpiece, and also hot toys figures.

    合川 (Hechuan, aka Daming) just got a ton of The Last Knight boxes in yesterday.
    -Tiny Turbo Changers series 1
    -deluxe wave 1 -- Barricade, Bumblebee, Berserker, Slash
    -voyager wave 1 -- Grimlock, Optimus

    Wasn't paying attention to things like 1-Step Turbo Changers or Knight Armor Turbo Changers but they probably have wave 1 of each.

    Was at the 新生玩具反斗城 (Xinsheng Toys R Us), the one near 中山捷運站 (Zhongshan MRT) today.
    Posted my sighting pics here:
    Newly released and upcoming toys: Hasbro edition

    They have a huge and impressive The Last Knight movie toys display upstairs:

    It's been 8 years since I last visited the fine country...

    ...& this thread. :p 

    I was told by some collectors in my country that Wan Nian no longer exist so did the toy merchants relocated elsewhere?

    I'll be in Taipei couple of months from now so would like to get myself updated on "who's in business & who's not" just so that I don't end up wasting time for nothing.

    Based on the previous posts, I would assume that the Underground Mall is still active as usual? DaMing is gonna get a definite visit from me (it's been 8 years since I last met them so time for some catch-up)

    And how about Zhong Xiao area? Are those shops still operational? I've been to SOGO back then but I've no idea what to expect anymore.

    If anyone has newer places to share, I'm all ears about those & I appreciates the kind gestures. :D

    I have been looking for 3rd party transformers for a while in Taipei but haven't found much, Surprisingly you can find more transformers stores in Tainan than Taipei, that has been my experience at least. If anyone knows a place or places please let me know :)

    Try Toys United Nations (玩具聯合國) in the Xizhi train station. He has loads of 3rd Party stuff for great prices. Got my FT Omega Supreme from him, amongst other stuff. Also, try Rud's Toys. Rud is a great guy to deal with.

    If you don't mind a drive, you can try Cooltoy Planet in Zhongli. They have a crazy amount of stuff, some for great prices.

    Do you live here or just visiting?
