Not sure if this is terribly helpful, but was going to Montreal this weekend, and happened to stop by a K-Mart about 5 minutes from the border. They had 1 platinum edition insecticons for $80, and a few CW Rook and Silverbolt. Memory is hazy after a long weekend, but they had a few CW legends (warpath?). Selection was paltry compared to the TRU near Montreal (they had Motormaster!).

I picked mine up from Hypno-Tronic Comics which is a quick walk from the ferry dock at Staten Island. They still had a couple there, but not much else (maybe a Generations Doubledealer and Rhinox)?

I've been seeing that some folks in the NY/NJ area have had success at their local discount stores as of late. I decided to check out the TJ Maxx in downtown Manhattan, and scored the last Sky Lynx for $14.99. The box is a little beat up, but the inside looks fine. There is also one Onslaught on the shelf, also for $14.99. That box looked like it was in decent shape.

I was at the Atlantic Center in Brooklyn yesterday afternoon. Target didn't really have anything. But Marshall's had 3 CW Onslaughts and 3 CW Scattershots. Each figure was $14.99.

Found a RotF Ejector in the Rite Aid up the street from my place in Oneonta. Already had the figure second hand and figured it was cool enough to snatch up regardless!

Looking for action figure/collectible shops in New York State

Postby BATTLEMASTER IIC » Sun Oct 29, 2017 12:37 pm

I've been ordering a lot of my collection from Amazon sellers and BBTS, but I was wondering if any action figure/collectible shops like BBTS exist in New York State. Of particular interest, does anyone know if there's such a shop within 3 hours of Rochester, NY, even in Canada?

A quick Google search brings up three locations on Long Island, but that's a long 7 hour or so drive for me.

I'm a bit confused bye your request, I'm not sure exactly what kind of a store you looking for, are you looking for a big Warehouse type of store, or like a Collectibles place that might sell toys cards comics and other sorts of things

I live in Rochester myself and know of at least one anime store and an antique toy store in the area

I merged the request for toy shops in New York into the New York sightings topic. Better for local discussions.

I know of at least two stores in New York City but that's it!
