    Does anyone know of an online store that has semi-fair prices, good communication and good shipping that sells the Hasbro Reissue Skywarp? I've heard of people always ordering from these sites, but when I ask about them they always have negative things to say. Obviously no site is perfect, but I'm looking for the best.

    Anyone? I may consider buying from a member here if I can't find an online store.

    EDIT: If they have good shipping to Canada, that is a deffinate plus!

    Why don't you just get it on Ebay? It will be much cheaper if you wait for the right auction.

    Yeah, for that particular item, I'd just go to eBay. Or post here in the Junkion--you'll wait MUCH longer, but probably get a better price in the end.

    But they don't have Skywarp, and he's the only one I want.

    Evilbay is too unreliable. However, some members here have very good feedback.

    Has noone had a good experience with Toywiz.com? They have Skywarp and I'm sure someone here has dealt with them.

    I suggest you wait on ebay, skywarp shows up pretty often. And with the same money you spend on online store, you can probably buy parts on ebay for 2 skywarp and build a complete one with the better parts.

    The only thing you have to watch out is there're differences between pre-rub skywarp and rubsign skywarp, their parts are not compatiable with each other.

    Ebay unreliable? Since when? I've made 500-600+ transactions on Ebay with maybe 2-3 bad transactions (only 1 involving a Transformer - and the seller was a mod from the Allspark...). You can say "I don't feel comfortable using Ebay", but you can't say they're unreliable because that's not the truth. I think I've been screwed 2-3 times... by board members (here and elsewhere). If you check the feedback of your sellers, Ebay is definitely the way to go for sweet deals.
