Still wierd how their only cheap toy ws 1954 Godzilla, and they stated that they were out of stock on all the other cheap figures. I understand that they would not have Revoltech Baragon, Y-MSF Megalon, and Ultra Act (0r good Bandai) Gomora I wanted, but that was sad how they had no cheap Movie Monster Series figures. Are there any better places in the city instead, or is Toy Tokyo the real last one? How bad was the Chinatown place's selection and would they have those figures or could I find those figures in NYC?
Chinatown is really lacking now. THe one on elizabeth street had about 2 pegs for figures when I went, all dominated by x-aliens from Final Wars. YOu could try image anime but i haven't been there in years. Zakka in dumbo also has a small section for Godzilla figures, and I guess they are moderately priced (purchased the 8" SOS GOdzilla from them last year for $29). Other than those you would be hard pressed to find cheap figures for "cheap." Honestly I would order those figures online. They are easier to find, less expensive, and even with shipping it could turn out cheaper than paying tax and subway fees.
Since you're in BK check out zakka. the store proprietor is really nice, and his memory is sharp as hell. the last thing i bought from him was when I bought the super big scale meltdown godzilla in 1996. I went last year and he still remembered me and asked if I still collected Godzilla toys. may not be cheap anymore and the selection may be small, but sometimes it's good just to have a conversation.
