    Question for the NYC people.

    I'll be in the city next Saturday and I was wondering what the best stores for figures are. More than just transformers. Stuff like Figuarts, Monsterarts, Figmas, assorted Banpresto lines, etc. I'm mainly looking for Transformers and Dragon Ball Z stuff but I'll take suggestions for any stores that are worth checking out regardless of if they carry TF or DBZ items.

    Also, I was thinking about hitting up Chinatown. Are there any shops I should keep an eye out for or is there not much as far as figures or other random anime collectibles?

    Thanks in advance for all the help and suggestions

    Battlecore Optimus was in Colonie TRU yesterday before I grabbed him, as of about 1:30 p.m. the fixed hip Motormaster was still there. Though Colonie is out there is a good chance Prime is at other stores in the area.

    I'm never going to find Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus in any store on Long Island ever, am I...

    On the other hand, I was hella surprised to find a local Wal-Mart stocked 4 of each Protectobot Deluxe, so there's that. Only took four months!

    I can't find anything around Albany. BBTS is the only reason I have Thundercracker, Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Hot Spot, etc...

    Distribution sucks and other local collectors have been faster than me.

    Why not order online? I'm impressed that people still go out and hunt them down though!

    Serious?!?!? :eek:  *checks website* Ugh, figures it would be a store that still closes at 10, not the new 11 :(  (9:40 as I type this, would get there 10:10) Guarantee, by the time I get there tomorrow... :(

    I will definitely be going to FP and TT after looking at their pictures. Driving up to the city now, hopefully it goes well.

    Thanks for the suggestions!
