    You're talking about a country that values water and food over comodities. I doubt there's even a pet shop over there!

    Actually there is one in the Dubai Mall. Really expensive, but they have some hard to find figures there. When I was there in Oct they still had Wolverines and Leonidas figures in stock. There average price in US dollars is about $330.00 a figure. I was able to get an Iron Man Mark 1, Wolverine and Blade from him for a little over $200.00 each. There also a small store in Al Alan that has a few figures as well. If he goes to the Dubai Mall the store is located on the same floor as the Movie Theater.

    Never noticed that there. Of course, the times I passed through, I was more focused on getting a cold beverage in one of the barely tolerated watering holes and only did a quick walk through of the mall.

    And you base this statement off of what experience?

    Clearly an out-of-school comment.

    Yeah dude, isn't Dubai in like Africa or something?? Or like maybe in one of them A'rab countries??? Yeah man, they have like no money, so how could they POSSIBLY have a hobby, outside of water and food? And they can't even afford pets!!!! What a tragedy, thank god Bradjolina will adopt all those puppies that were orphaned in Dubai. Haha.
    Yeah dude, Dubai has a crazy thriving economy, just check this AWESOME tennis court: World’s highest tennis court at Wayfaring Travel Guide
    I am sure that if you spend a day visiting that shop in the mall(keep in mind I have never been there) and looking around for "hobby shops" you will darned well find some 1:6 goodness in Dubai. My guess is that is where the rich and famous secretly buy their own mandollies so their agents don't find out, just like their antique cookie jar collections.

    Are you talking about the "British" toy store chain up-stairs, rather large store, or is there a smaller one that just has figure type items. Thanks

    The only store I know of is "cinema 1" in dubai mall. They sell all sorts of collectibles. Figues statues, the lot.They're rather overpriced though.I find it cheaper to order my figures from the USA or HK.
    Heres a link so you know what it looks like. It should help you find the store as well.

    That is the one that I am talking about. They are expensive, but I guess it has a lot to do with the area. I was able to get him to go down on the prices on the figures that I got from them. He had no idea how hard they were to get stateside.
