During this season, the toy shops here are being shrouded by the legion of Lunar New Year decorations which they are undoubtably trying to be rid of by the end of the week.

The shops here sell departmental store toys at wholesale prices, e.g., Mattel TDK figures at S$10 - 12 each from Kanto Hobby, but real gems can be hard to come by.

This shop specialises in DID stuff and has lots of loose items for sale.

While this one has a real odd assortment of items, with the knock-off gashapons and Marvel figures being the main attraction.

This shop stocks Hasbro, i.e., Star Wars and Transformers items. The toys are recent releases but aren't fantastically discounted. The best deal I saw was for the Darth Vader/Death Star Transformer for S$50. Very tempting, but too huge to lug back.

Got to love the shop's banner.

Also, the Golden Computer Arcade in the area may be good place to drop by if your looking for cheap computer hardware.
