    Default Sydney Shops - Potential TF Stockists

    I tried to find a Melbourne version of this to gauge the best section to post the thread, but couldn't find one so am posting here. Mods - please move if necessary, thanks.

    Purpose: An ongoing list of Sydney shops that potentially (i.e. could, but may not) stock TF figures and TF merchandise (e.g. comic books, t-shirts, statues, etc.).

    Shops which I think most people will know about (e.g. Myer, David Jones, Target, K-Mart, Toys 'R' Us, etc.) will not be mentioned since there probably isn't much point as toy sightings threads will usually mention them.

    The idea is that people who have information can contribute, and if necessary, update and/or correct information that already exists.

    I'll start by adding a bit.

    1. HobbyCo - may stock TFs

    - QVB, 421-481 George St

    - Shop C027 Level1 (Adjacent to Dick Smith Powerhouse)
    Macarhur Square Shoping Centre

    Omega asked about Melbourne shops the other day. I think we could do a similar list, I'm going to 'borrow' your format.

    I stopped by another Sydney Store, I think it was called Silly Dream, at 1 Dixon Street, Haymarket.

    They weren't open at the time but I could see a MP Skywarp, MP3 Soundblaster, Encore Soundwave ($115.00), and Encore Starscream (I think it said $199). Outrageously expensive, but they have some stuff.

    Most Sydney shops don't know how to value their stuff. I still remember that dude selling Music Label Sound Blaster for $300 and BTs for $150-$180 (I think Sam mentioned him already in his list). At Hobbyco one dude wanted to sell me a used, incomplete and paint chipped BTA Sunstreaker for $110.

    Was heading through today, so I had a look at Silly Dream (who thought up that name!?!).

    They're easy enough to find, but in a spot with not too much passing traffic.

    They had about 7 different TFs - all of the Encores, TCS #6 and a specific Masterpiece. Prices, that I saw, were fairly hefty. But hey, more secure than buying online, at least.

    I checked it out today.

    Comics = All IDW stuff. Nothing Vintage.

    Figs = Binaltech Red Alert (Kiss Play), Tak Reissue TargetMaster Kup & Wheelie, Galaxy Force deluxe Dirt Boss & Red Alert, Tak Armada Smokescreen, Beast Machines Tankor & some other stuff not even worth mentioning. Red Alert MISB was $135 & Kup/Wheelie was $95? (I think) while others I've mentioned were reasonably priced.

    If anyone's interested that is...

    I think comic-wise, Comic Kingdom does have some stuff from Dreamwave, such as Armada and Energon, and even some G1. I was there on Saturday and saw them there, but yeah, no Marvel stuff.
