    I've checked out this site for a while for jap mag scans but their prices for jap toys are pretty good. Has anyone ever order from them? I just want to hear about their experiences. In terms of shipping cost? Getting hit by customs? And how fast you get your stuff?

    Been a while, but Ryan has always been nice, good safe packaging and quick shipping.

    Just don't expect a professional multi-employee store at the other end. :)

    Ryan's great, and has helped me get things US-based retailers wouldn't/couldn't (unmodded Megatrons, the Beast Wars Returns line, etc...)

    Although you start with a lower cost for your item, by the time you've paid EMS shipping, cost on most things becomes relatively the same as if you'd just gotten it from BBTS or TFSource. That's not a F2F phenomenon specifically, of course.

    I bought from him years ago. He later said that he undercharged me and instead of holding my stuff he would tack it onto my next order. That was my last order. I prefer BBTS

    How is their shipping?

    I only ask because I just want 1 item they have for sale and would like to know if it's worth it or not when the shipping is added on.

    Have you ordered from Japan before? Depends on the method, but if you're patient, you're not going to spend all that much. Also depends on size and weight, as usual those details aren't supplied.

    Moved on from Ryan's services years ago but when I was using him I had no complaints.

    Oh man, I almost forgot about Fan2Fan. I think the last time I used them was when I wanted an un-modded MP Megatron. From what I remember, they had very good service for what they are.

    Yeah, they were one of the major players a few years back. major source of TF news as well. It's been years since I bought stuff from there. I'm kinda surprised they're still around, it's been so long since I heard the site mentioned.

    They were awesome back then though. probably still are.

    He's a great guy but very slow to respond at times. Still I'd recommend him.

    Well, the item I want is only like $6 and is lighter than a packaged Scout-class Transformers figure. How much would that be shipping wise?

    I'm only asking all this because the item they have is something I've never seen for sale anywhere else and I have been trying to obtain it for a few years now, to no success.
