    We do, on every corner in every chinatown. ;)  You can also buy milk and cigaretts there too. They're total one-stop-shops. :) 

    No high-end KO's in those places though. Only dusty Armada-era stuff from what I've ever found.

    Weird, most convinence stores I've been in (both in the USA and Canada) run as family businesses typically have some Dollar-store KO toys kicking around. Some even carry model cars, and testor enamel paints, depending on the interests of the owner. Best of luck finding something.

    There's always sirtoys.com though for non-TF transforming KOs, and downscaled G1 figs. Paul, the guy who runs it is in China. Good prices on products and shipping. Nice guy, too.

    I find those wierd odd ball KOs but I'm referring to an actually TF ko like a classic prime, dinobots, classic seekers and such.

    I've talked to Paul a few times

    Which really is a shame, because having a good SG Prime really makes me want that Shattered Commander armor.

    My only experience was with the DIA KO armor, but outside the realm of repaints (or Fansproject actually producing one), looks like the SG armor is the only route.

    I'm really tempted to get the Maketoys Purple Battle tanker (official version), although I'm waiting on some company to make a decent KO G2-Botcon SG Prime to go with it -- sort of the reverse of your situation. :)

    There seems to be two different KO markets - the ones intended for kids/dollar stores, then the 'high end' ones intended for collectors. I doubt a brick/mortar store for the latter exists. If it does, the owners have ordered from online overseas retailers, and would mark their stuff up accordingly.

    Sirtoys walks the line between these two, just due to what he has available to purchase from stores in China.

    Wow... gotta say that's kind of impressive.

    If I ever got the funds for it... and the retooled Xovorgen KO never makes the light of day... this would definitely be something to grab for a Custom. Now if there was a particularly good Jetfire to go with this for that combo folks made a while back... would be quite sweet.

    These guys just arrived today + the Dr. Wu Matrix-hilt swords for each.

    Sadly, the swords are too loose in the hands, but are really nice diecast - they feel like letter openers.

    Despite that, the new molded Classics Prime KOs are pretty amazing - blows the original Classics Prime I owned years back out of the water. The faction symbols are also dead-on, and overall have great paint apps.

    If you're needing these, check around at the various KO toy retailers. I got mine from Toymoda, but I believe item cost + shipping is cheaper from some other places.
