    Boston

    Guys,

    Travels will be taking me to Boston in a couple of weeks.

    I'm aware of Hobby Bunker in Malden. Worth my time?

    Any other stores I should put on my list?

    Thanks

    Jack

    Haven't been to Hobby Bunker in quite some time. Expensive... Tony's Toys in Fall River is outstanding if you can get there. Easy ride down Route 24...
    What do I feed them? Small children and obnoxious ankle-biters like your's...

    Depends on when you are going to be here and what your interests are. Tony's is def worth a trip, but there are others nearer to Boston that are good as well.

    Guys,

    Many thanks for the advice.

    If I'm looking for loose parts, where would you recommend?

    Regards

    Jack

    New member here, also looking for shops in the Boston area.

    I drove out to find Tony's Toys in Fall River today, but they appear to be closed. It was gated up and looked like they had moved out (although some racks and counters were left).

    Does anyone know of anywhere in the state that has 1/6 figures/loose items? I'd much rather drive 2 hours and get something in hand than get overcharged for shipping on tiny things.

    I need to update this after finally getting the correct info. Tony's Toys in Fall River does exist as a retail location. They moved to a larger storefront, and I was checking the out-dated address. Their retail location is amazing, with an enormous supply of 1/6 goodies, ranging from bodies, to weapons, to vehicles and shelves of boxed figures. Their address can be found at their website, The Store on 44 - Dragon, GI Joe, Cobra, etc..
