    Default Overseas Sightings: China

    This thread is for posting sightings of licensed Transformers in China, including Taiwan (not sure if I'll find any there, but here's hoping...) for anyone who may be there or may be visiting there in future.

    The following sightings are all from Shantou, Guangzhou China.

    * Wal-Mart has movieverse and Generations TFs. Deluxe movieverse figures currently discounted down to AU$8 each.

    * I found a small collectable toy store today which had quite a lot of Transformer toys including...

    (Sealed)

    * Transformer Go-Bots.
    * Titanium Series Thrust
    * Robot Replica Megatron
    * Universe Sunstreaker
    * Some FABs
    * Power Up VT6
    * Beast Wars Tigerhawk
    * Various movie/ROTF figures

    (Sealed)

    * Some Universe Mini-Con set.
    * Movieverse and RtS Voyagers: Battle Hooks OP, Sea Spray, Strafe, Payload, Grappel, Banzai-Tron and Lugnut.
    * Classics Bumblebee and Astrotrain

    (Loose)

    ...a lot! See the pic for more details, but some that stood out to me included:
    * DOTM Deluxe figures
    * ALT Ricochet

    Don't know the name or address of this shop off hand, but I'm thinking about going back there, so I'll get the details then.

    ---------------------------------------
    If I find anymore legit TFs in China or Taiwan, I'll post details here.

    Hey Gok, I think I'm not alone here in wanting more pics of the toy stores (if you get half a chance and it's not too much of a hassle). It's just cool to see how they do things in other places and I imagine most of us will never set foot in China, so don't be scared to get snap-happy.

    I'll see what I can do, but it's hard to take photos in shops here... it's hard to even take your time to BROWSE here because Chinese shopkeepers hover over your shoulder like a freakin' hawk when you shop! It's like the whole idea is to walk in, buy, get out.

    Yesterday I was going for a walk and bumped into a Canadian fellow who's been living in China for 8 years (runs a local business and started a family with a local woman) who described Chinese customer service quite adequately as "non-existent." It certainly is most unwelcoming. It's like the extreme opposite of Japan where customers are treated as Gods, even if you don't buy anything.

    fatbot: I don't recall seeing Buzzer-bot there (if I did I would've grabbed one for myself as I don't have one either!) But if I do see him, I'll grab a pair. Some of their Go-Bots are Japanese versions. I take it you're not fussed.
