You could try Chinatown. Last time I was there, there were stores with imports as well as US released figures. Again, more expensive then a non-NYC store but much cheaper then Switzerland prices.

Althou, about 4 years sago I went to CTNYC on a visit, fouds a store, 32 MOTT st if I'm right, still had imports like Binetect, Kiss players and plenty Gundums.
If you go, stop at 174 Mott street for the best Fried Dumplings ever.The place looks like a hole in the wall being underground, but its the best food in all of China town, imo.
Speeking underground,China town has an underground mall that was once a good place to pick up TF's Voltrons and other stuff.

As a native New Yorker, definitely try Midtown Comics-- your best bet is the Times Square location, as I think it's the biggest, and it has two floors. They have Transformer toys on the second floor, and the last time I went (2-3 weeks ago), they had both Generations and TFP Wheeljacks. If you open an account (which is free--they only take your name and birthday) and spend $100, your next $20 is on them. I'm not sure if this only applies to comic books or toys too, but it's definitely a great deal.
Another bet is Forbidden Planet in Union Sq. They occasionally have some great toys. A few years ago, they were selling Omega Supremes and Sky Lynxes, but I think generally their toy selection is limited.
Toy Tokyo in the east village is an ABSOLUTE MUST. Every time I've been there, they have a toy that's worth buying. Toy Tokyo - East Village - New York, NY
Toys R Us in Times Sq. is pretty limited, but the prices aren't marked up heavily. There may be a Target/Walmart in Harlem or Brooklyn, but I'm not too sure. I'd suggest doing a store search on those sites.
Hope this helps!
