    Simply Toys closed its shop at Bugis Junction. They opened another shop at a different location in Singpost Centre, Paya Lebar. Have not been there so I don't know what the product selection is like but the Vivocity outlet had undergone a revamp to focus mostly on Funko POP figures now, similar to the one at Plaza Singapura.

    Singpost Simply Toys is like Vivocity. 99% are Funko. Pls do not expect Tranformers from them. :)

    Vivocity is Funko-focused now too? Doesn't that mean whole of Simply Toys is Funko now?

    When I visited Vivocity, there were alot of collectors for Funko.

    From business perceptive, I can understand Simply Toys direction. I guess selling transformers and other toys figure are not as profitable.

    Yeah since transformers are readily available everywhere else and like at Isetan and metro always goes for 20% off often.

    Some of the old vendors there are still operating at the fook hai building Sunday flea market, but there's only a handful of them, it's mostly antiques last I went.

    Took a closer look at the "Gen Selects Smokescreen" shelf at TRU Paragon... Turns out they have everything from Combat Megatron, Ricochet, Red Wing to Hotshot and others, but they decided to put their security devices over the names.
