    Hey there. I'm taking a trip to Melbourne this saturday for three weeks. Can anyone give me any leads on Transformer hunting down under? I'm mostly looking for Japanese or G1 stuff, or anything I coudn't normally find in the states. Your help would be much appreciated. Also, we may take a trip down to Adelaide so I'd love to hunt there too.

    Reply here, PM me, or email me at ikabushi@yahoo.com

    thanks!!

    Minotaur is one of those comic / collectible stores in the CBD. There's also a place called "Comics 'R Us" and "Hobby Japan." I'll see if I can find site addresses for them. Most of these places are probably going to be pretty expensive. If you want new stuff like Classics etc then the usual K-Mart, Target and "Big-W" (essentially our Walmart) are your best bet.

    Yeah, obviously looking for Vintage G1 stuff. I can find all the new Classics stuff in the states. I'd love to find some Galaxy Force or Japanese Beast Wars stuff if possible. I'll check the comic stores like you guys said.
