    I used to visit HK fairly regularly. Don't think I ever saw it looking that good for new figures

    Edit: Not just Toys R Us, is that In's Point?

    Downright painful seeing all these multiple exclusives just sitting on store shelves that we can only get for scalper one hundred dollar per deluxe prices.

    Hasbro are stupid.
    Do they learn nothing from other toy companies that actually allow you to buy their toys? They seem to encourage the scalper market with their draconian policies.

    ^^ This

    Hasbro apparently thinks no one in Australia wants PotP Punch/Counterpunch.

    More photos to come from the last 2 days, and a few new places thanks to Bladestorm.
    Unfortunately, I didn't see anything on your want list... but I got the new MP VW Bumblebee for you to come and play with.

    The ToysRUs is at Ocean Terminal and is one store I always visit when in HK because it is so huge and always has heaps of TFs.
    The other photos are from the Wanchai stores, TRU Causeway Bay, Hobbybase and the Terminal 2 airport toystore. Pricey store, but they always have heaps of different exclusives and new releases. Finding the SDCC Revolution boxset there from 2017 was a surprise... and I had to buy it.
    Those photos were taken before I went to the Mongkok stores, Whampoa stores and the Toyzone that used to be at Taikoo.

    Looking at TFW2005, I just noticed that the MP-10G has been sighted in the Philippines on a retail shelf!!

    Maybe we'll be super lucky and this will become more widespread.

    As I had noted in the SDCC exclusives news topic, the one I got from ebay was from Asia with a Hasbro Asia distribution sticker on it (the seller was actually in HK, so probably got it from a local store)... which means that they were available to retailers there, and if you pop on over you should be able to see a few at the moment.
    (it's not like anyone has the time to buy toys over there at the moment, being too busy protesting and lighting fires... )

    For around $252 AUD as well. Paid $330 for mine. Would I have been able to get it here for $77 or less though?......

    Ah well. Should have Optimus by the 12th, according to the Couriers Please, in any case.

    Toy Kingdom is the toy store of the biggest mall called SM in the Philippines. TRU seems just second to them and both stores are well looked after by Hasbro Asia. They used to do pre sales of upcoming TF toys a few weeks before they hit the shelves (which i believe to give all collectors a good chance to get what they want rather than scalpers storming the malls and making a certain figure "cough-vehicon-cough" jack up its prices).

    Anyway i'm pretty sure my mom would not like wearing a proton pack boxed transformer coming here next month...
