    I know there are other posts about this issue, but it seems like they are all from 2006/2007 and some of the places mentioned have closed or do not have quite what I am looking for. I'll be in NYC for a week and want to stock up on G1 re-issues. Where can I get them? I'm not looking for anything too fancy or exotic. I have most of the TRU re-issues from a few years back, but I'd love to get some of the Takara Encore stuff that's come out since then (Hound, minibots etc.) or other American stuff that I missed out on ("white" astrotrain, TRU soundwave etc.) Surely there must be some place in NYC where I can go and have a chance to purchase some of this type of stuff. Can anyone recommend a place? Thanks in advance!

    I live on Long Island, its close to NYC, if you want to take a drive out, there are about at least 7-8 TRU, and I have been to 5-6 of them. They seem to have many Blaster and insecticon reissue.

    Make sure to check out image anime when you come to NYC. I don't generally buy transformers from them but I do know they have some encore figures.

    that place is a rip off. they over price evey encore reissue by 40% from retail prices. but as far as selection. they do have some to choose from, if you dont mind paying more. btw the masterpiece voltron they have is priced at 150% above ebay going prices.
