    Has anyone here used Toy Arena for TF purchases? I'm pretty loyal to TFsource right now, but there are some things at Toy Arena I'm interested.

    So, what's the packing quality like? Anyone have bad luck with damaged boxes/figures, anything like that? Are the boxes in good shape - like C-9 condition?

    Any help/opinions would be great. Thank you.

    I've ordered a few things from them via ebay. They're pretty good all-around, although I think their prices are a tiny bit higher than BBTS and TFsource. I always get my packages pretty quickly, and the packing is adequate. Everything has arrived, so far, in great condition.

    I ordered 2 Japanese Car Robot toys from ToyArena's website. Great shipping and packing, boxes are really sealed. Although, one of the boxes was a little beat up from shipping. Otherwise they are a fine site to order from.

    I've ordered several things from them, and packing quality has been very good. I've never had anything come scuffed or bent in any way, let alone worse. For the stuff I've ordered, the prices were slightly cheaper than BBTS and comparable to TFSource and shipping prices were about the same. They've also shipped my stuff extremely quickly, though I'm in California and they're based in California so that could be part of it. I've had pleasant experiences with them previously.

    i think they have a spot over at frank and sons. I think they just started selling stuff there not too long ago. The prices there are ok, a little higher than TF source, but when u add shipping it comes out to about the same thing.

    I've ordered from them for non TF items. They're pretty good all around and sometimes you buy things cheaper from them on eBay (member name liqdeal.)

    I bought stuff from them in a few occasions. I find them cheaper than BBTS and about the same price as TFSource.

    The packaging is excellent and shipping was really fast. I ordered a Black Convoy two weeks ago on a Thursday and I had it in my hand that Saturday afternoon.

    they have a 10% off coupon that you just have to search the web for. This brings their price way down...

    we advertise for them on our site (predaconempire.com) and there a great site. very relyable+good postage and you can actually talk to the owner. Ive found TFsource just really over charge on things and bbts is kinda hit and miss on things

    Yes, the coupon code in combination with the low shipping cost makes toyarena a winner in my book.

    I've never had any problems with them. I've gotten many things from them on ebay.

    Yup, I almost forgot about this. I use it everytime I order from them, it practically knocks off shipping, at the least.

    I met Thomas from Toy Arena at a local show here in Los Angeles called Frank & Sons Collectible Show. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about TF's. In addition, he did mention he's trying to build a fan community base locally for TF's. His prices seemed fair.

    Thank you guys for the help. I bought a couple things (with the code) just now as sort of a test run.

    Again thanks for the advice.
