Hello.

Firstly I must apologize for my bad English I'm French.

I'll make a trip to New York during the months of November and I'd like to take this opportunity to buy some 12 "(I would save on shipping costs that are still around $ 40).

I need your help to know which shops are selling 12 "in New York.

If it's important I would make the acquisition of:

Jack Bauer / Enterbay
Spider-Man Symbiote Comics Costume Version / Medicom (I know I'm dreaming)
Iron Man Mark III / Hot Toys
Albert Wesker: Hot Toys (which should be released in November)

Thank you in advance for your help.

So the first spot you should hit, if you can find it, is this spot in chinatown.
go to Chinatown Fair, located here:

its a video game arcade. when you are facing the arcade, turn to your left, and walk up the street, keeping an eye on your right hand side. There is a small shop that has lots of 1/6 figures in the window, go in there and ask for danny. He has very reasonable prices and a great selection.

Then try these other spots, which you should be able to find on google maps.

Toy Tokyo (a bit expensive, but pretty good selection) - Manhattan

Jim Hanley's Universe - Manhattan

Forbidden Planet - Manhattan

Midtown Comics - Manhattan

Vikings Playground (probably the best prices you'll be able to find, but its way out in Brooklyn)

Hope this helps

candlejack pretty much has it covered!

if your in SOHO, KidRoot is cool (not a lot of 1:6, but sometimes they have a few surprises).

That's a tough shopping list.

Jack Bauer - this is probably the easiest to find figure for you. We don't have them in stock anymore, but maybe some other store in NY will do.

Spiderman - well you said it yourself:) At least not for a decent price (even original Medicom prices are hard to call decent, so be prepared...)

Iron Man MkIII - these are sold out everywhere, I don't think anyone in NY still has them for sale...

Wesker - if its being released in HK in November, don't expect to find this figure in US stores until either very late December or even January. HT releases are lagging behind here in the US.

Cheers!

Thank you very much for your answers.
My hotel is in Manhattanso I would go see the 3 stores that you have mentioned.
If I can ask one last question, do you know good address of video games store.
The exchange rate €uro Dollar is very advantageous so I Enjoy to bring some collector's edition, why not Rock Band 2 (the instruments not released in France) and a X-box 360b ^ ^.
Moreover can you give me an estimate price for these two ?
Again sorry for my bad American/English.
