    Hi Cybershadow, google China Square Central (Sunday 'Mkt'), The Falcon Hanger and Robo Robo. Alternatively, Mach from this thread sells stuff at a reasonable price.

    Singapore is Small...Ion to the above locations in 15 min via Mass Rapid Transit (subway) or abt half an hour from Holland Village. If you drive, its much much faster, if there are no traffic congestion.

    Many thanks. I don't plan on driving out here, but the MRT is great. That gives me a few places to start with this week.

    Or Bras Basah Station for Falcon's Hangar if you're taking the Circle Line. Singapore's pretty small so it's easy to navigate. Welcome :)

    Current tfs widely available in retail toy stores are:
    Transformers Prime, DOTM and Generations- Toys R Us, OG (Near somerset mrt), Metro n Takasyimaya (Orchard mrt). Priced at SGD 27.90 for deluxe, $54.90 Voy, $109.90 leader. However DOTM toys are having clearance for $16.90 for deluxes and $29.90 for voy... Takasyimaya have some Takara movie toys...

    As for hobby stores is ur best bet for MPs, binaltechs, encore , 3rd parties...Prices varies diff stores...latest toys includes encore devy, MP black rodimus...

    I recommend CSC (go on Sunday for e flea market), RoboRobo (City hall mrt) and TFH The Falcon Hangar (Bras Basah mrt)

    Hope this helps! :)

    I hate going there, it's quite a stuffy place filled with annoying & obnoxious people lol :p 

    Whatever it is just take my opinion with a big pinch of salt & you'll be fine..

    Wow. Thanks for all of your help guys. I really do appreciate it. I doubt that I will get to all of these places this week, but I am here for the month so it will keep me busy. It looks like Singapore is a little cheaper than the UK, but with a much better selection of figures, so it's going to be hard not to over-spend over here. I will let you know how I get on. Thanks again for the warm welcome.

    So, I found myself at Takashimaya this afternoon, and they were having some kind of toy Christmas event - Gundam kits packed the shelves, Beast Wars on a large screen and Transformers Prime figures.... PRIME! Sorry... Foreigner... Not used to seeing those around. Not a huge selection there, but the entire first wave of Prime Deluxes and the Entertainment pack..... and a mountain of DotM Deluxe Bumblebee. It's good to know that the UK is not the only place where these things shelf warm! The various deals were advertised as well, but most of these were sold out - HA's, for example - or not worth it - 3x DotM Deluxes for $50, but they only had Bumblebee and Mudflap left. I picked up an Arcee, which is probably my entire TF shopping done for the trip unless I see something awesome (is there anything out out over here that I should keep an eye out for?).

    Also, I couldn't come all this way, and not at least think about an Evac! But, I know nothing about Universal Studios or the ride. Do I need to pay to get into the Studio? Do I need to go on the ride to pick up an Evac? Is it one per person? Or, can I just walk in, visit the gift shop and pick him up?

    Finally, is there anywhere in Singapore to pick up Macross (specifically 1/60 scale) figures? I know that licensing is a nightmare to retail outside Japan, but I thought I would ask.

    Many thanks for all of your help, guys. I appreciate it.

    You will be staying for only a month right? I guess Evac would not be out by then. But if it will be, my guess is that it will be at least a Universal Studios exclusive item in the beginning?

    But definitely yes, you need to pay to get into the Studio. The gift shop according to the preview pics shown on this site is inside the studio with the ride itself.

    EDIT: more info about the ride Transformers: The Ride - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Macross 1/60? I have limited knowledge on market price here in Sg but for what it's worth, I got my Yamato VF-1s TV version from hkcollectibles.com, had it shipped over to my home, process took about 2 weeks with registered air parcel, in end-November, spent around S$160 overall

    I'm quite surprised CHMS didn't make a copy of Minerva and Dragstrip yet ! also they could probably apply G2 Special Team Dragstrip colours to the mould too.

    That mould makes a pretty decent Minerva in my view so I'd have liked a copy.

    if I'm not wrong, deluxe Evac's supposed to be out in Feb 2012 only. so you'll probably miss it..

    if you're looking for DOTM toys, you could head to TRU or other departmental stores like OG, Metro, Isetan, etc. You can pick up a deluxe for S$16.65, voyagers for S$39.90.

    for Prime toys, OG has a promotion of 20%. TRU has the most complete range so far though.

    if you're interested in Kre-O, you'll have to go TRU or head to Serene Centre (Toy Brick Station)..

    Yeah I did see them airing Beast Wars a few weeks back on the big screen in the event hall. I think it was from season 3 since Rattrap was already a Transmetal.

    Sorry for being OT but does anyone see Bastila Shan from the Star Wars Vintage line anywhere in Singapore? We've not had any new SW here in Malaysia for many months now. :(

    That is crazy cool. I wonder if the kids watching were wondering where the toys were to be found, haha.

    Yep. It was definately Beast Wars, although it featured those Fuzor things (I have a gap in my TF knowledge and so have no idea about those lines). But the episode/s were mixed in with Tom and Jerry and other cartoons as well. It was pretty cool to see them, though.

    Ah, OK, thanks. I guess that saves me the issue of whether to pick up an Evac or not, then. Still, with potentially moving over (if a couple of interviews go well this month) and my wife already living here, I will have the opportunity later on anyway. I just assumed that the ride exclusive figure would be available at the same time as the ride! :sly2: 

    I have been picking up my Macross stuff direct from AmiAmi, HLJ and Anime Export in the past, but I wondered if they were available at retail here as it will save serious shipping cost, and I will have an empty suitcase going back. RoboRobo had a Macross category on their web site, so I will check them out, but it seems that Macross is almost entirely unavailable at retail outside Japan. Thanks Harmony Gold!

    Thanks for the note. I stumbled across TRU at the Forum SC on Orchard Road today. That's it, I am moving to Singapore full time! I assume that you guys already know what is at this place and it's not worth posting a sighting. If not, I will head over there as I would like to give back contribute a bit if I can.
