    Where can I find an import store for TFs or just TFs in general???

    I'm here until Sunday and so far I've only been to Tokyo Kid in Harvard Square...

    Things are looking grim as far as my hunting goes out here... :(

    I've only been in Boston for the past few months (studying here), and I don't think there's any other store aside from Tokyo Kid. No, this isn't a very good place for import TFs. Makes me miss home that much more. :(

    Yeah the bay's TRU is probably one of the better places. Another okay-ish spot is at Alewife. Not too far from the station is another TRU. Best of luck, let's just say online shopping is my friend now...

    Yeah, I was hoping to find some import stuff since I can get Hasbro stuff from the TRU/Target/Wal*Marts that flood the Bay Area... Oh well... At least I tried... :cry

    Well. I am in Boston too :D  But as I mentioned, I'm not local, and I'm not the best person to ask. In fact, if you do find more import stores, do give ME a pm! :D

    Tokyo Kid's pretty much it. Did you try checking in Chinatown? I could have sworn there was something between there and NEMC (New England Medical Center), both have stops on the Orange Line (http://www.mbta.com for subway maps).

    But that may have been a porn store. It had purple neon lights in the window.

    *edit*

    Also, Newbury Comics occasionally, but rarely gets some TF import goods in. I got my Mega SCF figures from them.

    been spending a good amount of time in newton where my girlfriend lives, and aside from a newbury comics, I've never seen any import toys anywhere. though I never thought of looking for them either. toy distribution's not too good around here...

    I was thinking about trying Chinatown... Maybe they'd have the Road Bots there...

    Kinda wish I could go there and just ask someone if there was any stores, but I doubt people will know... :banghead:

    yeah, all I can think of is Tokyo Kid. Now back in 1998 there was anouther store, I believe Image Anime had a location there, but that closed years ago.

    Try Chinatown, I've always wanted to but never really got a chance to. Not much for exploring chinatown on my own either.
