    Thanks for the feedback guys, seems like one day bid isn’t sure when they are going to have THF Soundwave in stock. They told me they’re giving me a refund though. As long as that goes through I’d feel fine buying from them again, they’ve been very responsive.

    Once I get the money back I actually think I’m ordering one with liujunling87_5

    I'd recommend, if you haven't already, ask them if they actually have the item in stock. Seems almost nobody has much anything from THF in stock right now; unless its very random old stock lingering around?

    Great experience with planetfigures, I ordered a neoarts leonidas from them and received it in 8 days, let me repeat that 8 DAYS!!!!

    This was my first time buying off of them and went solely based off of CM's list....

    Let this be a lesson for you kids, don't buy from an overseas seller unless they are on the a-ok good list......

    I took the plunge and bought a road king from him, i will report back. I asked him how long before shipping and he responded with the typical " soon friend blah blah" we shall see

    Got a reply from liujunling87_5 Screenshot_20190502-142347.png I guess it's just translation but I wouldn't have called a detached leg an accessory. If they send me parts to fix smokescreen it will be like building him myself with all that has to come off to put in replacements

    I came here to bring up eBay seller one_day*bid. I have ordered a few things from them in the past with no issues and was always impressed with their older TF stock. Once there was an issue though, I got no resolution from them. I have chosen never to buy anything from them again.

    Here's a list of issues:
    - Ordered a MakeToys Jazz and didn't get a tracking number for two weeks, when I asked for one they said it was a pre-order. I replied that 'PREORDER' wasn't explicitly mentioned in the posting and I didn't agree to it. They promised me my figure every month for three months and always said that it was coming soon. They eventually gave me a refund after I contacted eBay.
    - I ordered and official Takara Sunstreaker that had the door defect. They promised me a replacement part was in transit. I am still waiting and I haven't received a tracking number.
    - I bought a yellow ToyWorld Constructor from them and one of the figs was broken out of the box. Again, one_day*bid promised a new part with no follow-up. On a side note, I contacted ToyWorld with no response either.

    Buyer beware

    For the FT-05 I bought, the item was in great condition and sealed.. that said.. it didnt have the original FansToys tape so I believe it was opened before and resealed.

    They do have a lot of hard to find stuff.. that said.. i think they release them for sale in 2's or 3's and once sold out.. in a few days they will update the quantity. I wonder how do they have all that stock when almost everyone else is out.

    never had a preorder issue with them so can't comment on that, but the replacement parts stuff I can one*day_bid has sent me every replacement part I have asked for usually takes a month to get to me but I have always got it at no extra charge.

    think the majority of their stock is just what ever is left at the factory that stocks them or ex display models, I recently ordered the g1 colour mft huge dragon and one*day_bid had one left so I ordered it about two days later I got a message saying that the one they had was not in good condition and asked if I'd take the blue one instead, I was disappointed but accepted, but at least they contacted me instead of sending a messed up figure.

    To be fair, I have received some harder to find items from them in good condition. When I hit an issue, they only promised to fix it and didn't follow through.

    I am surprised by that but that's only because they haven't done me wrong yet. Even when I've followed up because as I said it took awhile they did give me an update and sent what I needed. Got parts that where missing from my jinbao devastator seemed to be factory error and sent me a new sword piece for my feral rex as it was broken in box in transit. I may just be lucky but they are always helpful when I have an issue.

    So I just got a nice suprise message Screenshot_20190503-001809.png and now I'm getting 3/4 of a smokescreen sent to me and I get to play jigsaw with the one I have. I also have some picture ideas involing the deceptions then rachet and wheeljack with an operating table haha

    I often find it amusing that when I tend to get replacement parts, its so often quite a few more, or a bit more than I actually needed. Still, it's pretty darn nice when they give that option. Hasbro direct will often offer to have you return the item, and only offer to send you a replacement of the same value, no guarantee it'll even be the same item.

    I think the little part that broke off the front of the car isn't really fixable on its own, I kinda thought I'd need a whole new chest manifold didn't think the hood and roof needed to be attached but guess it did, don't think the arms are there so gonna be a lot of mix and match putting it together I think, probably be asking questions for help if it gets too complicated lol

    Just wondering.. there were some rumors of a KO version of FT-05 a while back.. but there seems to be no confirmation that there was a KO. Anyone know if there actually was a KO or there is a KO version? There is this one store on aliexpress that has 50 FT-05 apparently.. don't know if that is real or he had a typo.

    To date, none of FT's products have ever been KO'd.

    Pretty sure nobody has tried, or at least not succeeded making KOs of FansToys products. Although, they'd certainly seem like the ideal candidate given their limited production runs and ever-increasing resale prices because of limited releasing. I imaging if somebody was going to, they'd either start with something very small and simple like Spindrift, or something huge, with guaranteed demand like Phoenix.

    One day bid issued me a refund today. I would work with them again. They communicated very well. Anyone know how long it takes for a refund to show in your account?

    Anyone had any recent dealings with josontony? His feedback has a few questionable negitives but he's still on the good list so wanted to check if anyone on here had good or bad things to say?
