    I just ordered some replacement g1 prime stickers. The inside of the trailer ones were cut fine. The rest were not. The autobot logos in particular were comical. I ordered from eBay and didn’t realize who I was ordering from. For quality, stick with toyhaxz

    well.. I ordered some, now 3 weeks ago and still "pending" so just wrote them, either send or cancel...if I don't get news by Monday to a proper response or a mail-out confirmation, I'll file with Paypal.

    I can understand some delays within reason, but this is above reasonable, especially without contacting the clients.

    EDIT: it's been enough days (5) and still no reply.. so I've filed for refund with Paypal... I'm giving them until tomorrow to respond to the Paypal claim.

    I ordered some stickers from them on May 27th. Wrote them a week later with no response. I had to open a case with Paypal and they are giving them until Friday to respond. I would avoid this place now. It used to be an ok place to get some TF stickers and Non TF stickers. Now I would not buy anything else from them.

    Same issue here with Tfkingdom, I ordered two G1 OP cab stickers and a trailer sticker on August 10th and got no response when I try to make a change on my order. The status shows "Awaiting Fulfillment". I messaged them and emailed them and still no response at all. I open a case with Paypal but I have to wait until Sept 11th. When I logged on and check my status again, it shows "Disputed". First time ordering from them and didn't read the forum here first. I understand it's during Covid-19 and it may take longer and I understand that but if they are not fully operational, then they should not take orders and let their customers know. The trailer sticker is not cheap also. I just ordered two cab stickers from Toyhax last night and they are preparing the order already. I can at least have the silver stripes.

    I am restoring two G1 OPs with my nephew. Just one trailer sticker on the left side is really bad so I had to remove it when cleaning it. The trailer sticker is just too expensive, it's cheaper just to buy a new trailer. I wanted to change to the Diaclone trailer sticker set they have as their OP G1 trailer sticker color looks too green instead of blue but now I guess I cannot do that all and have to wait until I get my refund from Paypal.

    I never did a follow-up ..

    My news, I got refunded by Paypal within a week or two, TFKingdom never replied to me in any way or form... and from that short-ish delay from Paypal, I gather that it's the same for them.

    I'm going with "they're all dead from the COVID and no-one left to turn the site off".

    I'd be curious if anyone has actually been able to get any order or even a reply from them at this point.

    Since then, I purchased the stickers of what I was looking for from a seller on eBay, got them a few weeks later and that was the end of that.

    Imfallenangel, glad you got refunded. I hope Gremnock got refunded also. I just escalated the open claim on Paypal but the automated response from Paypal is I have to wait until Sept 13th and the seller has until Sept 8th to respond to them to give him the benefit of the doubt. When I did the claim on the 22nd, the status went from "Awaiting Fulfullment" to "Disputed". I mean I do hope the guy is ok but I do want my money refunded now as I do not need the stickers now. I decided to sell my 1st edition OP G1 trailer and get another one because I cannot wait if TFKingdom may or may not respond to me. It would have cost too much to get the trailer sticker from Toyhax so I just cut my loss and bought another first edition trailer in better condition. It's not worth it to buy the trailer sticker set as the inside has metal plates and I just need a sticker for the left side. Now selling the trailer as parts on Ebay, this just cost me time and more money.

    I ordered the silver stripes from Toyhax for the cab only, Toyhax shipped the silver stripes already. No tracking though. I touched up the chrome on the cab (OP) with a chrome paint marker. Now will touch up the red.

    I think it may be cheaper and easier just to buy a good condition set instead of restoring but my nephew said that would not be fun as we cannot touch it or breathe on it, LOL! Maybe we will post a finished project with before and after pics on a new topic?

    I got refunded from PayPal. Like others have said they are not responding to anyone. They operated on eBay as well, but have since shut that down and said website only. All the payments went to Hong Kong, but the business was located in Texas. Just weird overall.

    I honestly thought this was about the upcoming toyline and that the guy who started the thread was a time-traveller. I should go to bed.

    Man that really stinks. does ANYONE have any idea where I could get me some Raiden stickers?
    honestly kind of absurd the amount of rare obscure bots Reprolabels have sheets for, but not Raiden of all people.

    Nowadays, for ANY online stores that I've never dealt with, I'll do a check for reviews about the site first. It's crazy how many have a bad reputation, but note that I will assess the reviews and decide for myself.

    Another thing I do at times, is to send them an email and see if and how they answer.

    One other thing I do when it comes to newer sites I've never used, I see if PayPal is a payment option. At least with PayPal if something shady occurs, PP will have your back and you can get your money returned.
