Which stores in the cbd are still open. It's been a while since this was posted. I'll be in the cbd area for work this week so just wondering if there are any specialty stores that are still open that I should go to. Not interested in Target etc as they all stock the same stuff. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Excluding mass retailers, there's not much. I think there's only Zing in Hay Street Mall EB Games. Last I was there, there was only a couple of TR voyagers.
There might be something in what was once Empire on Hay Street down near His Majesty's, but I haven't been there for ages and don't know if it's even still open.

No Empire Toys is long gone. There is a records/collectables/pop culture store there called High Fidelity, but they don't sell TFs. Zing at EB games has a small collection of TR stuff. I've seen Masterpieces at Quality Comics on Hay st every now and then.

Last time I stuck my head into Quality Comics on Hay St they had MP Primal and Delta Magnus. That was about 4 months ago ish.

I purchased MP-28 HotRod from there about a year ago.

If you're after Tracks or Road Rage you might have joy at TRU Cannington.

Thanks for the heads up on these 2 stores. It's nice that they are so close to each other.
High Fidelity had nothing TF related but the statue stock they have is mighty impressive. Was really tempted to jump on the Hot Toy bandwagon for the first time as they had a 20% off sale.
Quality comics had some MPs. Cheetor ($130), Laserwave, Grapple ($170), Inferno, Wheeljack were the ones that shoot to mind. Laserwave was tempting at (I think) $230 however I had a very short time in store because of the parking in that area, #nightmare!

Yep, as stated, Empire is sadly long gone...

You guys heard of Tokyo Underground? I'm pretty sure that's still around and they usually have the odd TF piece.

Yeh Tokyo Underground is still around, but they don't have any TFs when I was there last week. Their gunpla stock is looking pretty low as well they seem to mostly have that cutesy stuff.

Keep an eye on a store called Little Robot here in Perth. No Transformers, but a range of gunpla and Star Wars kits.

I have huge amount of gunpla with no time to built. Tokyo underground is excellent if you trying to get onto the hobby and mix around with people building as they have workshops.
