Just Collectables :- New Import stuff mainly Japanese
Chapel St, Prahran


Chapel Street Bazaar :- Occasional original G1's
Chapel St, Prahran

The no named shop run by the Vietnamese dude on Chapel St. :- New Import stuff mainly Japanese
Chapel St, Prahran

More details and exact addresses to follow.


BTW I think we should remove Comics R Us from the list. It's been both mine and STL's experience that these guys are shallow a-holes that will bag a customer once they've spent their hard-earned in their shop and also their prices are a compete and utter rort. They definitely don't deserve the free advertising here.

what about that shop under eaglemont station

Safeway also stocks transformers (good when stock are really dead)

also isnt there like two places in footscray that sell collectables.

one is off brakley street near the station and the other is upstairs where the savlo shop is (but i think that one is closed)

Will update with these suggestions tomorrow. Keep 'em coming.

Dirtydigger, not sure about dropping Comics R Us off the list, poor service aside they are one of the few shops in the city that have second hand classic TFs (although overpriced).
