To all NYC residents, I'm going to be staying in midtown next week. Is there any cool toy/hobby shops you'd recommend?

Well, put aside any hopes you have of finding a good price on anything. Everything is more expensive in New York and toys are no exception.

That said, there's a few neat shops. FAO Schwarz and Toys R Us are worth checking out just for the experience and their selection is usually better than average, so if you're hoping to score something current that's probably your best bet. Image Anime and ToyTokyo are very cool hobby/import shops and midtown comics and forbidden planet are awesome comic stores. FP also has toys, but not a ton of Transformers (did see a MISB Seacons reissue the last time I was there. Never seen one of those outside of online shops).

Also, if you smoke, bring your own cigarettes. If you drink, find a good happy hour and be very nice to the bartender.

Collection Count: A heap. That's metric for a bunch.
In all your TRU travels, if anyone sees Prime Arcee, or the 4 two-packs of minimates Calico Jack's Pirate Raiders, please lemme know. No time for the hunt this weekend for me unfortunately.

Clifton Park TRU has Arcee and Soundwave, but no Ratchet. (Lone Arcee is stashed behind DOTM 3-packs for anyone still needing it). Multiple 'Jumpers and 'Bees were still there.
Standing Pre-Orders: R-02 Talon, R-03 Bovis, R-04 Leo Dux

G1 Cartoon superior, Marvel Comics inferior - Anyone willing to trade MP Soundwave heads?

I haven't seen a single Arcee or Ratchet and I am still needing both. If anyone happens to see them, please stash & PM me. Debating biting the bullet and ordering online.

Wait...th-that's in Brooklyn, right? As in, actually within New York City?! Hot damn, it's about time! I gotta start checking places near me again in the coming week...if only I hadn't decided on Friday to bite the bullet and buy Ratchet off Amazon. Eh, no matter, there's still Commanders to be found, plus it means NYC may finally be catching up with the rest of the state wave-wise.

Correct, my friend! For Commanders, always check that section on the outside of the aisle, even though most of it is dedicated to nerf and/or Star Wars.
