    I can attest to this, over the past year whenever I use small air packet with amiami it's slipped through customs.

    Went to Enfield Smyths

    Lots of Kingdom, Cheetor, Inferno, Warpath, BW Megatron

    Some Netflix exclusives

    Lots of ss86 Blurr and Jazz, didn't spot any others.

    Fair bits of Studio Series, mainly Dino, one of the big Constructicons (Demolisher I think) and Blitzwing

    Son picked up a couple of Cyberverse Bumblebees, all in sellotaped blister packaging. Seems to be a theme with carded Transformers but not other toylines; are they known for not being stuck on well or are stores accepting returns on opened items?

    I've been checking the four that I can get to on a semi regular basis and, aside from the one I managed to get to the day after it was first reported where I found a few and picked up a Reflektor, I've not seen anything at any of them apart from Buzzworthy Bumblebee Trash Crash that they all have in.

    So after the whole Scourge issue, what is the general opinion on Sonner Toys? I'm looking to pre-order the next wave of SS86 figures and they are by far the cheapest (£95 for all 3 compared to £112 via Hasbro) but if they aren't reliable I would rather order from StarActionFigures instead or something.

    I never ordered scourge from them but everything else I’ve pretty ordered with them has always arrived, Hasbro just seemed to have not brought over enough scourge or kept far too many for themselves when pulse launched

    I ordered SS86 Hot Rod from Sonner Toys, and although they were later to get their stock than some sources, it all came through OK.

    I did have a bit of trouble signing upto their website, but they sorted it out.

    I've seen one of their stores in person and it's always popular and seems well managed, but there's no denying Funko Pops are their core offering.

    So a lot of places are starting to get kingdom wave 3. And like I said before in the Uk a lot of places are saying September. So do you think we’ll be getting them before September?

    I may be in the minority but I have found them to be pretty good. I did have a bit of a wait for my Scourge to turn up - I think most have - but I received it safe and sound in the end.

    I’ve also ordered some GI Joe Classified off them which I had no problems with.

    Yeah, I think their 'bread & butter' is definately Funko Pops. I bought a couple from them recently and they came through quickly.

    Took them a couple of days for them to post em out. Their packaging was top notch too.

    Can’t beat Kapow or Comics and Cocktails in my books, they’re usually my go-to for orders.

    Had positive experiences with InDemandToys, Gear4Geeks and StarActionFigures as well recently.

    Sorry to hear folks have had trouble with SAF. I’ve bought with them before and they’re generally been excellent all around. I do usually go with In Demand Toys though

    ComicandCocktails has slowly become my go to retailer over the past year since they tend to have good savings when you an entire wave (less so transformers, more so Super7 stuff), they have free shipping on all toys and though they tend to be on the higher end of MRRP sometimes they're have things for less than other shops or at the same price, letting you save a little money and finally they ship stuff as it comes in so you don't have to wait for an entire order to be in stock before it ships.
    Only issue I have with them is, for some reason, their site just will not load fully on PC which I don't understand.

    I've bought from SAF regularly in recent years and have nothing bad to say, so I'm sorry to hear of anything to the contrary. Going by my friends' experiences and SAF's Facebook page I think they are generally well regarded.

    It's great that we have a selection of excellent online shops to deal with though, that really cater to fans' needs. Kapow, InDemand, Comics & Cocktails, SAF - I wouldn't hesitate in doing business with any of them. Just shop around for the best deal.

    I used to buy almost everything from Comics & Cocktails for a bit but then they had a period where they didn't offer a lot of things so i've had to start using other places. Though I do use Smyths and Hasbro Pulse when they have a favourable delivery date.

    Speaking of which I wonder when IDT will be sending out invoices for remaining payment for wave 3 Kingdom items ?
    --------

    Smyths had some cheap 2020 Cyberverse item - I unfortunately missed looking at in time and so didn't see. Has anyone else got them on sale too and still in stock ? I like them enough to buy but not enough to pay full retail for them if I can help it. Also did Iaconus even come out in the UK or do I need to import him - sure his alt mode is perhaps the worst one ever made - but his robot mode is nice enough i'd say.

    Also I'm still after the old Cyberverse Ultra Grimlock and Bumblebee if anyone knows were I can get them at all ?
