    Only ones I can really think of is Toy Fusion and Oto's, pretty limited though. We need a place like Frank and Sons up here in NorCal

    Picked up the new Earthrise Micromasters at Target in Pasadena late last night (the one at 3121 E Colorado Blvd). Got the last Bombshock & Growl set, but there was one Trip-Up & Daddy-O set left on the peg.

    It's a small Japanese supermarket on Freeport Blvd. I haven't been in a while but they carry Funko, Transformers, Gundam and Star Wars. Not a huge selection by any means but its the only place other than Toy Fusion that I can think of where I saw some import items.

    I don't know any of the store names besides toyarena. The scalper dude who had the entire back row at old Frank's now has a big giant booth right at the entrance. I haven't seen that Asian family from the front of the old store at the new spot but I heard they're somewhere there. MyDpins has a big booth in the middle and it's a dual entrance like their old spot. A lot of the missing stores are just the smaller individual resellers.

    Has anyone seen Rung and Singe in the Bay Area yet? Worried these are going to suffer ‘final wave’ syndrome, with Earthrise already starting to hit...

    Can’t speak for the North, but they seemingly skipped it in Socal. Good chance these will land in discount stores like Ross. They have it available at Amazon jp and I’m really tempted

    Yeah, HLJ had listed the Japanese releases but Rung has already come and gone... which didn’t happen with the earlier Battle Masters.
