    Hi All,

    Looking for feedback on Action Robo - I've done some searching on the forums and seems like they are reputable and leveraged a lot for purchases, but I have never ordered from them specifically. I'm kind of spooked they don't leverage "https" for a secured site - appreciate any pros or cons anyone might have through experience. Thanks!

    PS - Admins please move if this is not the best place for this question.

    They're legit. They're on Facebook and have many worldwide customers. America, included.

    They're legit but not shipping to the US at the moment. Their shipper - Hong Kong Post - has suspended US delivery. Grrr....

    HK Post packages are trickling in to the US. Robot Kingdom also uses them and a couple of us here have been waiting for items from them since right when the shipping suspension hit, and some of those packages are indeed making it to the states as of last week.

    Looks like Robot Kingdom is currently charging between $63 and $88 to ship 4 deluxes. Ouch! To be fair, Action Robo offered me the same deal, but I declined and said I'd wait for HK Post air mail to resume - that was $35. I'm currently pondering just how patient I feel...

    Ouch! "Luckily" my packages from RK shipped mid March before the suspension happened. I got my Nemesis Prime yesterday, but there's still no movement on the last set of Seacons I ordered from them yet so still a waiting game there.

    And HK Post hasn't updated their shipping suspension info page since 5/22/2020:
