    There is rumor that Hasbro Korea will stop importing toys for collectors(CHUG, MPM, Marvel Legends, etc). If that rumor is true, i think Korea can return to an era where no TF toys could be found except movie toys on shelves as before 2019.

    No, more like, they are just reducing online sale and sell most of it on physical store(Lottemart, emart and individually owned small stores, etc.)
    At least Marvel Legends(Login • Instagram) do and

    probably SS will be like that too.

    They even seems to be considered Legacy Selects but I'm not sure how this go will be.(including other Legacy toys)

    I think they are not going to stop importing all collectors toys but, yes this could be another dark hour for TF fans who lives in Korea. :( 

    *edited
    btw, they changed official online mall to Coupang from Naver shop.
    New toys can find in Coupang.

    Well, toys that adult collectors like can only be found online, so I understood that they were no longer imported. So we can find them in physical stores, right? I already saw those pictures in the native forum. I hope Korean collectors can see them on the shelf, but it's hard to be sure as you said. The strong toxicity of the cursed native fandom is reducing the demand for TF in Korea lol

    They are advertising 'Far From Home' toys as these toys will be at Lotte mart and emart physical stores.(전국 롯데마트, 이마트 오프라인 매장에서 만나볼 수 있습니다.)
    So, I thought they are just reducing online sale not stop importing. And tbh it's a bad news for me if they are really stop selling or reducing selling on online since my local stores have no TF toys...:(

    Hey, I'm new. I'll be heading over to Korea within a month or so. What are some good stores to visit? Are there store exclusives in Korea too?

    Welcome to TF desert. We got no store exclusives and have mostly SS toys only.
    Official physical stores are only Lotte mart(Toys R Us) and emart but not all of'em has TF toys.
    If you extend to online store, there are
    11번가 Everytime 십일절 - 11번가
    쿠팡 COUPANG
    지마켓 G마켓 - 쇼핑을 바꾸는 쇼핑
    네이버 해즈브로 공식스토어(Run by Hasbro Korea and probably will launch in Mar 7th) 해즈브로 공식스토어 : 네이버쇼핑 스마트스토어
    and etc.

    And there is also Toymaru.
    피규어-식완-초합금 전문 쇼핑몰 토이마루에 오신것을 환영합니다.
    It's personal store but has more kinds of stuffs than official stores and if you are lucky, you can also find old rare toys.
    There is also Toymaru's physical store but it seems due to COVID-19, only limited visits(for pick up) are allowed to physical store.

    And this guy is also popped up but it's already sold out.
    I'm not sure this is really sold out or they did some mistake.

    Everytime when they post new figures on the website, it's always random picks from the wave. First we only get Wildrider and Knockout and now we only get Clampdown, the leader and titan class lol. Still very welcoming to have exclusives.
