    Howdy, a long time ago...well about 3 years ago, I started to buy alotta transformers online. So I found a site that looked really good, a usa based site. And Ordered a japanese devil gigatron.

    Now for the life of me I could never rememebr the name of the store. Until today I found a text file with the emails in from al lthe biz that went on (spring cleaning my storage drive)

    The shop in question was toys n joys online. I paid a total of £50 for this devil gigatron. Weeks passed and it never came. So, some pleasent emails went back and forth. Some guy named Alex was claiming to be taking care of the order. Then he told me it was on back order, and would be there in a week or so. More weeks went by, then they stopped responding to my emails.

    These crooks stole my money folks. They had charged me he money, and my credit card company couldn't get it back for me.

    At the time I was not a part of any tf community. Now that I am and I have remembered the site, I am warning you to avoid toys n joys at all costs.

    And I am amaized it is still going, what with al lthe ppl they ripped off (at the time I searched around and found a review site with literally thousands of complaints about em.. I shoulda looked there first....)

    Safe buying all ^^

    That's B/S that you CC company couldn't get the money back. Who ever you talked to lied to you my friend. They didn't feel like doing any work. They just take the money out of any new transactions from the store.

    I think that I'm the only one that has had a good experience with them. Just a few months back I ordered a BW Galvatron and the Silverbolt vs. Rampage set. They came in good condition, and didn't even take two weeks. I ordered from them one more time before then, and also got my stuff find.

    Yup. They blow. Based in Hawaii I believe. REALLY expensive. They use that yahoo checkout system. I've never received anything from a store that uses it. For them it was the Matrix replica a year ago. CC wasn't charged though.

    You need to report them to the Better Business Bureau. When enough unresolved reports come in from consumers they are forced to shut down. It's happened before, but takes a few months and anywhere from 50 to 100 unresolved consumer complaints.

    Hey thanks for the responces guys. I would have prolly took it further if I was on this forum back then. Not sure if the BBB would have helped, not sure since im from the uk.

    With any luck that alex guy will still be there the time I get to visit his store in the future.

    If the store is based in the usa the BBB might be able to help you anyway.

    Yup - Toys N Joys are crooks. I've never been taken, but I've never ordered - thanks to hearing so many bad reports over the years.

    Yeah me, too. Thankfully the especially high international shipping put me off.

    Sorry to hear that MasterDeath. That's a lot of money :(

    I ordered from them twice. Both times I got my stuff, but the boxes were smashed all to hell inside the shipping boxes. They basically smashed and crashed in any way they could to get a toy box to fit inside a shipping box. And for the amount of shipping they charge, they sure don't get on the ball and ship stuff.

    I wouldn't ever order from them again, that's for sure.
