    Keep us posted on your Roadking shipment from cangquan1971 guys. That $140 shipped price is making my spider sense tingle. It's just too good to be true even for Ebay.
    @Jazzwave I'd hold off on ordering from cangquan1971 until we see how @Ichibaru and @mirage426 shipments turn out.

    Thank you so much ChromeMagnus… you just save me and all lot of us from making a purchase mistake! I think these guys are all about to go rogue! They are not taking my money! Like you said... too good to be true and I almost bit on road king from them... will now go with showz. I think with recent release of road king, it gave them incentive to go bad since they can sale a lot of them and not fulfill it.

    @Blazedriver I'd stay away from zfy2018fy5. They've racked up 3 negative feedbacks in the last 30 days. They've been added to the bad seller's list on the very first post of this thread. Seeing as how they no longer have Roadking listed for sale, they've sold out out of it at a too good to be true even for Ebay price.
    Guys, please please be careful. There are lots of scammers on Ebay hustling Roadking at too good to be true prices. Last week I saw scam listings at under $100 shipped!

    If the seller is not on the Good List and/or has Roadking below $160-$165 shipped, please steer clear. Don't take the bait brothers, please.


    **UPDATE**
    Apparently the super low price Roadking scammers have either sold out or have had their listings removed as of this post.
    At the moment the lowest price for FT Roadking from a legit and trustworthy Chinese based on EBay seller is $168 shipped from Netclow.
    Transformers FansToys FT-31A Roadking pre-order | eBay (2nd batch preorder)

    If you're looking for Roadking below $160 shipped, either wait for an Ebay flash sale and buy from a legit seller there or but it from Taobao.com.

    Glad to help. See my previous post. Apparently, last week there were loads of scammers taking advantage of the popularity of Roadking.

    Bought WJ MPP10B from kaichu-57 on 4/23. Shipped via China EMS to Arizona. Got it today in mail. Bought 2 other items from seller on the same day w the eBay bucks promo that day but both (MFT black Brandon and sideswipe) were shipped via good ole speedpak. It cleared US customs on 5/5 so just another week or so now.

    BBTS, TCP, and TFSource have preorders up for a June 2019 reissue of Fanstoys FT-10 Phoenix. I'm sure listings will start popping up on Ebay and Taobao soon.

    combed through a search for some feedback on hzj401, saw that they seem to be on the up and up, pulled the trigger on getting an oversized hulkie from them, will update when shipped/arrived.

    Thanks. Please keep us posted. Also, let us know if they use SpeedPAK for shipping or not.

    hzj401 is totes legit, I order from him all the time. But he does use SpeedPAK even though I have asked him several times to use China Post. Oh well.

    In my experience: SpeedPAK will reach customs in a week or less. Then status will update to "customs cleared" in like a day or two. Then there will be NO UPDATES for probably 2 weeks, until it's "out for delivery" like the day of - or maybe, if you are lucky, it will tell you it finally reached your local distribution center the day before.

    All told expect to wait 3 weeks minimum.

    Edit: I should add, I have ordered that OS Hulkie from him - you will get it, don't worry about that. Just be prepared to wait a bit!

    Just to weigh in on hzj401; he is totally legit and has been for a number of years.

    I've bought OS CW Powerglide and the NBK Constructicons from him. All packaged well, without their own packaging, and were received really quickly.
