South Korea Transformers sightings

Postby Trikeboy » Mon Sep 17, 2007 8:06 am


I picked up a Revoltech Megatron in a small shop Yongsan Electronics Market, Seoul however they didn't have much else. Does anybody know of another shop in Seoul where I can get Transformers. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

When I was there back in '98-99 I used to go to the Tongdeamun toy market. I think it's the Tongdaemun stop on the blue line train. The Tongdaemun toy market was where I found the majority of my good bootlegs like the gold plated Snaptrap and official release Beast Wars. But I found all the good bootlegs like the oversized G1 colors Bruticus by taking the subway out to places where foreigners don't usually go, like Sang-Il. Just get lost in the mom and pop stores on the final stops of the train lines.

Just came back from Korea.

If you have been there, You'll realize there are little to none Transformers found.
(That was the case in 2009 for me).

Well, on this trip, I found some unexpected stuff.

No Database has been complied for TF shopping in Korea, so you're best bet is
ToysRus at Lotte World (Jamsil Subway station)
Or department stores. Not the high end ones, try Shinsegae department stores(I went to the ones in Gangnam district)
