    Hey, guys! I'm looking to track down an older figure and this site seems to be the only one (aside from Tf-Toy which... just no) with it still in stock. Are they legit? Will I get rolled? Thanks in advance!

    robotoybase is the new storefront for chimungmung, one of the old reliables of online dealers. I've ordered several things from him over the years and always gotten good service. Heck I think I got my very first 3P figure from him... Recommended. :)

    All I had to hear was that it's Chimungmung to know it's reliable. Thanks for the feedback!

    I buy reg from Chimungmung/ Robotoybase and never had an issue..
    He ships promptly and labels everything correctly, and reply to email usually within a few hours depending on the time difference.

    Hey, I have a question for this site. If you pre-order a figure, does the amount you paid for ($10) change to full price once it's in stock? Or, is the figure just $10 if you pre-order?

    The pre-order value will be taken off the total price when it comes available and you will have to pay the remaining
    Hope this helps

    You have to pay the balance once the item is in stock.

    Thanks for the info! I was confused when I saw some of the things they had for pre order. I was about to go crazy on the pre orders, thanks for the info! Really dodged a bullet there.

    Just making sure I'm not going bankrupt:

    If a figure has a pre-order of $10, and it says it will have the full value of $50, it will end up costing $40 when the time comes to pay, correct?

    I found robotoybase while searching for some items that other sites I shop with no longer have in stock. I want to order from them, but they only accept paypal. Now my question is, do I actually have to have a paypal account to buy from them, or is it like it used to be with hlj.com (before they switched to goInterPay), where when you paid them via cc, they'd send you a link to an invoice to pay them thru paypal without actually having to have a paypal account?

    I have a paypal account from long ago, but then I stopped using it for about a decade after a brief period of selling and buying things on ebay. Recently within the last year, I wanted to buy Cogman from Robotkingdom, so I went into my paypal account and suffice to say, it was hacked, it was tied to old email and bank accounts that I don't use or have anymore, and I'm not feeling confident in giving paypal my cc and soc sec #s in order to fix the problem. Not getting Cogman from RK was fine since I eventually found a decent price for one on Amazon where I don't need to have paypal, but robotoybase actually does have stuff I want and can't find on Amazon or the prices on Amazon aren't as good.

    I just recently discovered Robotoybase and I'm wondering if they're reliable aswell; ultimately they have a great selection of third party items I want to purchase, but how is their shipping, item arrival and response? Can anyone speak to that more in depth?

    I just ordered MasterMade’s Trypticon from RTB.

    I thought there could’ve been more bubble wrap or other inflated bubbles, but the box was only minorly dented in the corner, and no issues with the diecast dino, whatsoever. So, that’s all good.

    Though, much as I like to avoid PeePeePal, thems the breaks in this case.

    Moreover, I had one question about the tracking number, and, since I was writing him long after midnight, I heard back from Tony in about ten minutes. :D 

    Finally, I’m pretty sure the shipping is cheaper than Robot Kingdom, but still expensive. Air Parcel was another $40 for a total of $160 shipped. IIRC, Air Parcel was a step up from the base option, and hardly the most expensive one. But, Diabolus Rex, aka Tryps, arrived safe and sound in a week or so.

    And, I look forward to continuing with some older purchases from RTB real soon!

    RTB is solid. They charge a bunch for shipping but they’re reliable
