I live in the UK but I'm currently being considered for medical treatment in Jacksonville, Florida in the new year. My question is can anyone tell me good stores to look out for if I go there that sell 1/6th action figures? GI Joe or others, I was going to try and pick up some new figures while I'm in the USA between my treatments.

Thanks Alex. I should in about a week if I'm definitely going or not, and then a month to save up some cash to spend on 1/6th figures while I'm over there!

Already trying to pick out a figure to take, Alex! I was thinking of my MAM astronaut as the Kennedy space centre is just down the coast but I haven't got a helmet for the outfit so he doesn't look right. Might be getting a 40th figure for Christmas so I might take him instead.

Hi Pete. Very best of luck with your treatment mate. I would have thought the only figure to take would be an adventurer Wink

Hopefully you get the answers you seek...

I think there's a store in Florida somewhere, where my niece got my SAS figure at a knock down price. Best to Google stores for the area you'll be visiting. Hey, good luck with your treatment Smile

Best of luck with the treatment Pete.

As far as finding anything 1/6th in US stores, I think you'll be very lucky. No current toy manufacturer seems interested. Your best bet may be to look out for antique fairs as they seem to be where most US collectors find the majority of their stuff going by what gets said on the forums. Having said that I'm not sure Florida is the best state for antique fairs though.

If you're going to have a US postal address for any length of time you might be able to raid Ebay US for all those items that sellers won't ship aboard. Very Happy

Thanks for the tip - never thought of using EBay over there. If I go I'll be there for about three months so I could get a few things delivered...

Just checked EBay.co. and there's a couple of nice GI Joe figures for less than $30, which by my calculation is about £20. Hmmmm!
