I've just bought tickets to New York and wanna know where the best places to get Gi joes are. Can anyone help?!!
I live in London England and all the ones i buy come from America and it gets pretty expensive having them shipped over.
I'm going to Comic Con in February and cant wait as im certain there will be some there, but i got 5 days more to spend my savings.
I know about Toys r us and all the big tourist ones, but wanna find the small shops that not everyone knows about.
I look forward to hearing from you all.
......... (I had to say it)....

Unfortuantely finding GI Joes in the city is not easy even in the smaller shops. Toys R Us us usually the best bet and even that is hit or miss.

I know of forbidden plant and a place called st marks.
Go into the New york sightings section and they should be able to point you into the right direction.

How long will you be in town? If you are staying for more than a week or two, then I would suggest you order online.
You can always order stuff from online sites, and have it all shipped to the hotel.
Just check with the hotel manager first, so that they can receive your Joes for you.

NYC STORES 25th stuff tends to be expensive, but there are a few places worth checking for older stuff:
*KB Toys Manhattan mall is only worth it if they still have Valor v. Venom figs at $4.98.
*Love Saves the Day has only a few loose GIJ, (but a TON of Star Wars, from all times, some in original packaging).
*Toy Tokyo usu has some old or uncommon GIJ figures in various spots, all packaged. Prices vary. Other pop-culture toys, espec action figs (incl foreign).
Only in NYC: the last two stores are literally on top of each other! What's more, they're also a short walk from three more famous places: Forbidden Planet (worth seeing for the store, but not for GIJ, imo), St Marks Comics (worth checking back and front), and one of our two Kmarts.
Starting to build a dio!
