    I ordered from them before when they just opened. Now I go to www.toy-wave.com. They have better stuff and shipping is more reasonable.

    I don't know about postage to the UK and all that, but I picked up KO Wheeljack, Scourge, and Cyclonus from them a while back. Seemed copacetic.

    Just a quick update with my purchase from Yahobby.com. The packaging was fine, UM was bubblewrapped and they added some polystyrene around all 4 sides to stop it rattling around in the box. Arrived in 12 days, so well within the estimated 2-4 weeks for delivery.

    That's good to know, they seem to have some extremely good prices on certain items now and again.

    OP: YaHobby have good prices, but generally once you add shipping they're generally about the same as or more expensive than either TFSource or robotkingdom.com to the UK (or kapowtoys.co.uk who's prices seem more expensive at first glance, but work out about right once you factor the cost of importing a toy, with short shipping times and less risk of it going walkabouts to boot)

    i've used xybertoys.com before and they had free postage to the UK but it took ages to get here. HLJ are good too, but their TF selection is pretty small.
