    I was looking up some Beast Wars stuff and came across this site.

    toysnjoys.com

    Was wondering if anyone has heard or brought from them.

    The only problem I have had with toysnjoys is that their website inventory isn't very accurate at times. If there is something you are interested in I would suggest that you e-mail them an inquiry before placing any orders. Otherwise I've haven't had any other problems dealing with them.

    I've ordered twice from them. The first time was several years ago, and the shipping itself was delayed because they didn't have one of the items on stock. The second shipment went a lot faster. In both cases, the packaging was good and the items themselves were in good condition. Just remember that everything's being shipped from Hawaii so it might take a while.

    I ordered from them on Friday, and haven't received any emails besides the 1st one. Any idea when they'll confirm the order and everything?

    They're legit but slow and lately their prices have been crazy. I think they're in over their heads by trying to sell everything with a small staff.

    Ordered some Amdriver stuff from them in August , that did'nt show up until late December. I would've understood if they were pre-orders.

    I've ordered from them several times but not in the last 2 or 3 years. My brother had a problem with getting his money back for canceled pre-order. I believe he got it all back, I can't remember if it was store credit or a check. He also ordered some DVDs from them and at least once or twice go the wrong one. They seem very nice in there e-mails but are slow to respond. Still the first orders I placed with them were handled alright, although the PVC Megatron with Morning Star from my set they backorder was replaced with the original version when it shipped.

    On the good side I have ordered cds and a few Yu-Gi-Oh cards from them with no problem. I also got some of the Heroes of Cybertron from them when they first started coming out and only had a small problem with Megatron. I think that there were no problems with the last order my brother placed with them, a Gundam Fix Figure if I remember right, other than a slight backorder. At least I think that Gundam order was from them.

    You could just try placing a small order and if you have no problems just order everything else you want from them later. Like Chaos Muffin said they are legit, just a little slow.

    The first time I ever ordered from them they were fine, but I'm a little worried now. People are saying they don't keep track of inventory, and I ordered some BW figures which are kind of old. Hopefully they have them. I also emailed them, so hopefully I'll get an answer back soon

    Most of the time I get tired of repeating myself, but for really horrible retailers, I'll make an acception.

    I've ordered from them twice. First time, got a smashed box. Like, smashed when packaged. The toy packaging wouldn't fit in the shipping box, so rather than get a bigger shipping box, they just smashed it to make it fit. I contacted them, they said they'd do better next time. Next time, they smashed the toy into the shipping box.

    Between that and the length of time it takes them to ship "in stock" items, I won't deal with them again.

    I didn't have any smashed items but the time it took to ship the "in stock" items and the fact that one "in stock" item was not, in fact, in stock will stop me from ever ordering from them again.

    I was thinking about ordering some of the Takara Reissues from them as they seem to have them in stock. But after reading this thread I guess I should try E-bay.

    I was going to order a toy from them a while back, but after reading feedback through the Better Business bureau I decided to stay away. They have a pretty questionable track record on there, and that's just the people that were pissed off enough to file a formal complaint.
