    I've never dealt with Toy Arena before - can folks who have please report to me their experiences?

    Mods-please move/remove if this is an inappropriate thread.

    Thanks!

    Just bought a Classics Sunstreaker off of them about a month ago and it got here fast and in great shape. I'd deal with them again.

    They're a little pricy, but their service has always been pretty good to me. They're a good source for finding old Takara stuff (bought my RiD Black Convoy and BWN Magmatron from them)

    Great place. I order from them once in a while. And they always get new stuff first.

    I purchased an Animated Bulkhead (Leader class) at regular resale value, which was great. They shipped Fed-ex, and I received it on a Saturday. I didn't pay for saturday delivery either. Awesome company. I may get MP Takara Grimlock from them.

    Definitely give 'em a shot!

    I have bought from them in person and they tend to be a tad pricey. Their customer service has been pretty good. One time I bought an item and requested for faster delivery but they made a mistake and went a slower route. I caught this and notified them. They refunded my shipping and the item still came quickly. I also ordered an item for my boyfriend, who lives in the same area as they do, they set it aside for him. I still buy from them when they have items that no other online store has or they have the item at a better price than the other online stores.

    toy arena has been good to me. i get things really fast from them since they ship from like a mile away from me... haha. i was surprised the first time i ordered from them and saw their shipping address. wish they'd let me pick up straight from them, haha. now i just go to the weekly collectors show they are at. theirs is the only booth i really go to the toy show for.

    main reason i started shopping with toy arena is cuz i got shitty service from tfsource. tfsource can burn in hell.

    I've not dealt with them in a long time, but they were good to me when I was buying from them, no complaints.

    I've bought so much stuff from them, I forget how many orders its been. I love them. Stuff ships quickly, and a lot of products are offered, especially Japanese releases. If you're impatient about getting certain "hot ticket" items ahead of when BBTS or TFSource get them, Toy Arena does periodically get stuff first.

    I deal with them a lot. And yes, they do receive stuff very early in most cases. In fact, I got the following from them yesterday:

    Just made my first purchase with them using the recent coupon code. Very happy to hear so many have had positive experiences with them.

    Same here. Fast shipping & good communication. If you can deal with them face to face at a convention, they're lovely people as well. Very friendly and helpful.
