    Toywiz is one giant scam. I expect no less from their likes.

    Toywiz is notorious for their price-hyping. That's why no one recommends them.

    Toywiz is garbage. I remember paying an inflated price for a "MISB IN PERFECT CONDITION!!!!!!!1111" God Ginrai a while back. It arrived, and it was opened and played with, and missing the decal sheet. I tried to get a refund, no dice. They are a shady company that overprices their items.

    Avoid them at all cost.

    I gotta say, it's sad because I used to frequent their brick-n-mortar store for about a year and they're really nice guys.

    It's just their prices are just so insulting that I just stopped going. It's not worth paying over 30 bucks for a toy I can get at the Target that's 2 minutes away from them for abot 12.

    Well, on the plus side, it was probably the best place for me to go to figure out what 25th Joes were in each wave when I was looking for them for my cousin. Outside of that, I really see no use of even looking at their site. All you are going to get is a bunch of misinformation as to what is "rare" or "hot" and pay a steep price.

    It is funny to read their views on either Yahoo Shopping or Google Shopping. They do not have a good reputation even without factoring in their inflated prices. You would think that if you were charging well above the going rate on everything, you would atleast provide good customer service to the people you are ripping off.

    Yeah I won a ebay auction of theirs a while back and I paid for the item and everything. I didn't hear back from them for about a week and I sent them a message and another 4 days pasted. I filed a complaint with both ebay and paypal and sent them a message asking for my money back.

    Their reason. "Oh we didn't have actual said item in the store. And we have no future plans of re-stocking this item." WTF!!?? Then why in the hell did you post it on ebay any way? I understand this is a warehouse like toy retailer but wouldn't you set aside the items you are posting on a online auction?:throw 

    But I got my money back, but after a nasty email from me about poor store management and they sent one back making it seem like I was in the wrong for their mistake. Haven't been there since and will never buy from them again.

    I've never visited their site before. I can't help but laugh at the almost double retail price on the RotF Walmart Seekers. Especially when a Walmart by me was clearancing them for 11 bucks apiece.

    What a joke.

    HAHAH its kinda hilarious ToyWiz is my local comic/collector shop. They always charge crazy prices online. Its actually has a nice atmosphere at the actual shop but the prices can be a bit excessive. If there is anything someone needs from there and cant find it anywhere els PM me i can sometimes get much better deals ive been going there for years, nearly since they opened. Im also surprised about hearing there is terrible customer service i know the guy who runs the site and hes a really good guy. It may be because they are short staffed either way you shouldn't have to deal with bad service.

    Yep. I was curious about the reviews they get and almost every single bad review includes horrible service. Either rude operators or unanswered emails or phonecalls. Even wanting you to pay in order to return an incorrect product.
