    I just found this site tonight. It looks like their prices are lower than bigbadtoystore or tfsource but their shipping is higher. It still looks like a net gain though. Anybody have experience buying from them?

    Been buying from them for years, NEVER have had a problem with them. I'm sure you'll get a lot of that because they are that good.

    I actually just bought an xtransbots Powerglide from them.

    Top notch from my few experiences with them. Only reason I don't order from them more often is the logistics of the whole situation (which there is nothing they can do about). With the BBTS POL, the savings are minimal, and sometimes my packages get kicked around across the US while getting here through customs. Had a few boxes that were pretty banged up by the time they finally reached my doorstep. Product was packaged well, and secure, but had been passed through so many hands over the 2+ weeks to get here (shipped to NY for customs) that they got banged up on the way.

    Robotkingdom is pretty good. Even with the cheapest shipping option, my stuff came in about 8 days.

    It's one of the places I go to if no other place has what I'm looking for in stock. BBTS is still my primary buying source.

    I've ordered from them multiple times and each experience has been pleasant. No problems whatsoever.

    Robotkingdom is great. They are based in Hong Kong and their price for Japanese and 3rd parfty items is often significantly cheaper than US-based sites.

    Only ordered from them once, but it was fine. I still prefer BBTS for the PoL savings on shipping though.

    Ordered from them many times. The only problem I've had was when they shipped something I had preordered and canceled. No problem getting the money back for sending it back to them though.
    Sometimes you can get a REAL bargain there, on top of them being cheaper than almost anyone else.
    If you're in the states you'll get new japanese/chinese releases earlier by buying through them than through bbts and tfsource as well.

    While I've not ordered anything personally from them, vector ordered from them often and was always very well pleased with their service. I have a few friends on here that can still say the same :)

    I haven't used them yet, but they're on my list to try. I've never heard about them exposing their customers' CC numbers through crappy security two times in less than two years like some other high-profile TF e-tailers (*cough*TFSource*cough*), so I'd be willing to bet you're best off with either RK or BBTS.

    Pretty decent so far. Got my United Frenzy\Rumble from them and have a TFC Heavy Labour on the way.

    Prices are very reasonable, shipping is of course higher for the US since they're in Asia, but for me it's cheaper. BBTS shipping starts at USD 30 to europe, their shipping starts at around 18 depending on the shipping method.

    They are great. Their prices are reasonable, they dispatch items quickly, they get items in stock earlier than other shops.

    They are excellent. I've ordered a few things from them before. Other than the packaging and tracking number, I couldn't tell the box came from overseas. They're really fast shippers and definately don't mess around getting your stuff to you.

    Ordered most of my United Figures plus third party accessories from there. No problem. Came within a week after I ordered.

    Used them a few times.

    Always been accommodating about requests as well and no shipping or packing issues.

    By far the best online TF retailer.
