A visit to Mega Plaza-Bangkok

Post by bandhav »

Visiting Bangkok is equivalent of a "Kid in toy store" for an adult man. This supposed to be a figurative figure of speech but as I was there with family, I had to opt for the literal meaning of it and I visited the coveted Mega Plaza. This place is "Awesomeness crammed in all 4 floor" of a mall. If you are a hobbyist, collector, pop culture fan this place is literally heaven. It was an onslaught on my visual senses, I was not able to process what I was seeing, I usually prefer to experience a place in person rather than mindlessly clicking pictures but on this occasion I made my phone camera work overtime to capture all the awesomeness to relive it all later.

The figurine game here is stronger than the metal used for making the Thor's Hammer. If you are a marvel fan then there are very high chances that you will experience a cardiac arrest due to happiness overdose. I have never ever seen such detailed Figurines, you name it and they have it, even characters like Pepper Potts, Mandarin etc.

I will let the pictures do the talking now.

Thats a eye popper. Figurines which are very realistic.. You also have seen few in Singapore i believe. May be not much but one such mall called China Point was there 3 years ago, which had only figurines and toys shop. I was visiting these shops everyday as post lunch stroll, it was a treat to see the figurines.
Cheers :cheers:

How can we thank you enough for such a visual treat through this virtual tour! I am scrolling up and down since few minutes on this thread now and its just so awesome! The 1/6 Hot toys, Tamiya bikes and even those dinosaurs.. I would want to break-in to such a place coz there is just so much in the list of desire and so little in my pockets.
I know you have more pics. Keep them coming. :drool: :drool: :drool:

Wow! So many tempting items here, even an auto enthusiast, could end up buying superhero figurines!
Could you resist getting something for yourself or did you buy something from this maze?
In the hindsight, it is better to not have such stores in our neighborhood :tongue:
Still a Buster!

Can't recollect now about Singapore, visit to Nikko was the highlight of that trip.

Even I was short on funds, I wanted to buy so many things but ended up buying only few Premium Hot Wheels, 1 1:18 Bikes etc.

I think I have few more images, will share those in subsequent posts.

There was just so much to choose that I ended up not buying any superhero stuff. The detailed ones were anyway expensive.

It is truly a mecca in case you are in such stuff, it should be the part of your itinerary in case you are visiting Bangkok.

Man, I was so psyched about going to the bangkok plaza myself this June but this damn situation ruined my trip! I had my budget set and my wife on standby to gift me an early Birthday gift :rofl: Oh well Money saved for more pre-orders! :hurrah: But kickass photos @bandhav Really love the colection there. If you had the chance what would you have picked from those?

To be honest I really wanted to add so many of these as I was a new Marvel Fan then but yes if I have to pick one I would have opted for Iron Man figurine.
