Visit to HKG

Hi Fellow TF fans in HKG.

I am visiting Hong Kong this week and would like to know the best place to buy takara TF prime stuff?

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Matt from London

I was there a couple of weeks back. There are loads of places but I am too tired to list them all right now. Here are some of the highlights...

Causeway Bay:
Toys R Us Windsor House - Sugar Street(Causeway Bay MTR).
Sogo centre 6th floor I think.
Commercial building 19th floor - Toyzone

Kowloon:
Ocean Terminal TRU is the larger but both have good stock.

In's Point on Nathan Road has some decent sellers but that is only really open after 5pm.

Also try the Richmond Centre on Argyle's Street.

Sino Centre (Nathan Road) 9th floor (Elevator up, up and away)

I really need to sort out my photo's and shopping guide somewhen.

Toys R Us in HK has really become awful at keeping up with the release cycles and they are clearly color blind because they only stock Bumblebees.

That being said for anyone visiting HK two essential places to go which I second Gamofsteak in recommending are:

ToyZone in Causewaybay
Richmond Shopping Centre in Mong Kok.
As a 3rd Yahoo Auctions HK always has something rare or cutting edge new available.

A quick update. Thundertron is very well stocked in Toys R Us TST. Lots of placing are also selling the individually packages Arms Micron Minicons.

Lots of FOC and GDO's and also plenty of Arms Micron Deluxes and Voyagers.

Hey guys, my Dad is in Hong Kong for a few days and I was wondering if you could still Find Am-12 Breakdown and Jet Vehicon at places like Toys r us?

Hey HKers, are there any shops (WongGok, Central, TST, etc) that has the Sideswipe masterpieces out? I'm looking to pickup a couple.

Also looking for the older encores like Trailbreaker, Omega Supreme, etc.

My last resort is maybe meeting up with the robotkingdom guy.

Not sure about the encores but I saw the Sideswipes available for around HK$499.

Looks like Toyzone has moved away from Causeway Bay. It's now way out in Tai Koo.

RM B, 4/F, Wah Ha Factory Bldg
8 Shipyard Lane
Tai Koo MTR Exit A1/A2

Not much at Causeway Bay Sogo, but Causeway Bay TRU is piled high with FOC Grimlocks (edit: actually, for those who want them, there are plenty of Dark Energon Prime figures at both).
Mostly fail on the island this week; going to try Kowloon side tomorrow.
