Hong Kong Market Watch - Mong Kok and YMT

I had to head to Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok today to pass some toys to my friend. Ended up walking around and had Beard Papa too. That was refreshing.

Richmond Centre is all out of Generations Wave 7. None left. Not even the HKD$268/300 Generations Wheeljacks. Amazing. There are one or 2 random pieces, but really nothing to call home about.

CTMA Building, what can I say. This place was the rage back then, but really as good as useless for TFs nowadays. It's full of those 'capsule' type shops each with random articles of things for sale inside. Boring, really, from a Transformers perspective.

Sino Centre - oh gosh, I just realised that I plain missed walking into this place today. Heh. What the hell.

Inn's Point, currently the hot favourite place for toy hunting. Best selection of shops by far. There were some Henkeis in this capsule shop there, prices are not really attractive though - Henkei Starscream (HKD$560), Henkei Hot Rod (HKD$1680!) and a few other not really noteworthy Henkeis. 

What was note-worthy here, today, is a shop on the first floor - selling complete sets of Generations Wave 7. Yes, the Generations Wave 7... at HKD$550 for the entire set. Whoa, cavemen discovering fire all over again. It's interesting to note that the shop was willing to sell pieces separately, but it will cost more. A separate Wheeljack costs HKD$268; Thundercracker HKD$198; Kup HKD$148; and Scourge HKD$148. Might as well just buy the whole wave for HKD$550 I say. Anyway, that was interesting at least.

On the second floor, there was a shop that was flooded with Henkeis. Yup, flooded. Far as I could tell, there were the following Henkeis - Hound, Sideswipe, Prowl, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Ramjet, Dirge, Thrust. Guy also has the entire set of MOSC Classics 2.0 for sale. Very impressive.

That's today.

Time to play with my Henkeis now...
