Alright thank you! This will come in handy when I'm there. I used to live there so I should be able to get around well enough. Again, thank you. :)

If you are coming to HK and want to find any of the 1/6th shops you might find these two sites useful:

http://www.centamap.com/cent/index.htm (NB - The English option is hidden up towards the top LH corner)

http://www.hkcitymap.com/en/viewer.a...ce=LocationMap

They are interactive maps where you can search for buildings and zoom in and out, and also print. I've lived here for 11 years (from the UK originally) and use them both a lot.

NB - Floors are numbered on th English system, Ground Floor, 1st Floor etc., so 1st floors listed here would be US 2nd floors

Thanks for the guide Calvin. Had a great time last week and got some bargains too. Loved the Richmond centre and the CTMC HT shop. Lovely country, great food, great efficency and service, and lovely friendly people. I will be going back. Britain could learn a thing or two from people and their culture out there.

HI!
My first and from Spain...
Thanx to all for the great info, special for Calvin Lo and Action Man.
Going to HK in March 21st. I travel to asian countries one or two times per year and it will be my 4th time in Hong Kong but... never so crazy about 1:6 figures.
I hope not to be disappointed (and to have enough money in my pocket...).
For the record, i'm looking for the Takashi Sorimachi (Worthfield) figure from the Fulltime Killer movie... any help?
It's possible to find the 1:6 figures from the Three Kingdoms Romance availables now in Hong Kong?
Ok,that's all for now if i can update the info i will do it when i come back (no only military figures). Keep up the good work folks.

Thank you very much for the guides, Calvin and ActionMan! I'll be in Hong Kong for an entire week this April and all this information will come in very handy. Now where does one go for a Guinness in Tsim Sha Tsui ? :)

I don't know about TST, but if you go to Wanchai on Hong Kong-side Joe Bananas (corner of Jaffe Road and Luard Road) serves an excellent pint of the black stuff, and has a happy hour where Guinness is about HK$24 a pint!

Just over the road is Delaneys Irish pub, which also serves a good pint of Guinness as you'd expect.

BTW, Ah Wai at TMT Hobbies is moving to 12/F, Yeung Chi Comm Building, 462 Jaffe Road around the 17th April, so call him first to check where he is.

Drop me an PM if you fancy a pint whilst you're here. (But I should tell you, I only drink Guinness, not Moloko Plus)

Thanks very much, Action Man! I will definitely send you a PM while I'm there so we can hook up with a pair of blondes in black dresses. ;)

All the best,
Nick
