Try Super Collector, they get diecast toys from time to time. Their website
is, of course, www.supercollector.com. Don't expect anything in mint
condition, though. These usually end up on eBay most of the time.

There are knock-off transforming Macross 7 toys you can get for $20 - $30
each, but there's also the ultra-expensive plated & serially numbered
limited edition ones that go for like $200.
