I'm in South Korea right now but so far no sightings of Transformers outside of Osan (where I'm currently stationed).

A small Korean-run kiosk vendor in the Osan BX (base exchange) does sell some ROTF Voyager figures; Ratchet, Recon Ironhide, Nebular Starscream, and I believe Mixmaster. I might be missing one more character. But the prices are pretty steep for these guys; $58, pfffft.

Also just saw that this same kiosk vendor is selling DOTM Voyager class Ironhide and Optimus Prime for $58 each (ouch!) and DOTM Leader class Sentinel Prime for $99 (double ouch!). Yeah, highway robbery. Good luck trying to move those, Korean vendor.

The BX itself has crap - not a single Transformer for sale, though it does have some Testors paint sets and brushes, and an air compressor (but no airbrushes - huh?).

I'll have to check Seoul and see if I can find anything better selection- and price-wise there.

Not a lot going on here. I hope you guys don't mind, but about 25 years ago, I got a toy that was a Redwings/Houraioh bootleg that was all brown and had a mugen calibur head in Seoul. If anyone has heard about or seen this weird thing, I'd like to see pictures of it again since I no longer have mine. I think I got the places that were green and red reversed.

Dongdaemun Toy Market has a few Prime RiD figures. A couple shops had Voyager Prime and Megatron, as well as the Bumblebee/Starscream two-pack. Didn't see any Deluxes or Cyberverse. Prices seemed to vary, one shop had the voyagers for about 49,000 KRW and the two-pack for 55,000, while another shop (the big one with the Lego signs) had the voyagers for a more reasonable 37,400.

Haven't seen Prime stuff at any of the big name department stores yet.

The Home Plus department stores now have some PRID stuff. The one I was at today had Wave 1 Voyagers, Cyberverse Commanders, and Legions, as well as the Optimus Role-play helmet and Bumblebee blaster. No deluxes or Botshots. Prices for the Voyagers was W44,900, same as with DotM, but the Cyberverse figures were each W1000 cheaper, at around W13,900 and 7,900.

Wow, sorry for reviving a completely dead thread but was hoping for some help. I'm in Daejeon right now for business and was hoping to maybe find some TF's to eventually take back home with me but so far it's been a complete shutout. I actually thought I would be able to find tons of stuff here but I was so wrong.

The only decent stuff I've seen so far were at a local Homeplus. MP Bumblebee(movie) and MP Sunstorm, neither of which interest me at all and a reissue Sixshot. Guess collecting isn't really big here? Was hoping to get some older MP's and also MP Prowl but doesn't look promising at all.

Korea isn't really the best place is it?

There are some hobby stores in Sindorim station and Yongsan station. Otherwise I can't find anywhere that is like Japan or Taiwan.

Does anybody know of any hobby stores in Seoul that sell rare or 3rd party transformers?

Has anybody ever had stuff shipped to Korea? Any trouble from customs?
