    Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone has any recent experience with XyberToys?

    I've read through what I could find using the search tool, and it seems that lately they haven't been fulfilling orders, and that they don't have any new stock.

    I've asked them several times for a shipping quote now and still no reply, my order's just sitting there (not paid anything yet, fortunately).


    It's strange because on their homepage they're showing MP-18S, which is pretty recent, so obviously it was updated not that long ago.
    Anyone know?


    (I wouldn't be so bothered but I don't know of any where else that's selling the TRU WST Bumblebee!)

    I saw Aaron at Auto Assembly last year, he wasn't trading under the xybertoys brand though... I used to use him years ago, Xybertoys were brilliant.

    At AA last year he said he wasn't updating the site but could still contact him to order via email... alas I sent him a couple of enquiries but no response.

    If I can get to AA this year and he's there I will try and get more info, but I think its safe to say Xybertoys is not trading at the moment.

    It sounds like the site is abandoned but at least you didn't get charged for an order they didn't send. No harm, no foul

    Sorry for bumping this but I'm wondering if you managed to see the owner Aaron at this year's Auto Assembly?

    Or maybe someone else did?

    Sorry mate, didn't get there this year - but may be worth asking in the UK thread as a few people in there were in attendance.

    I used them on and off over the years, and I thought were okay. Although my last purchase (the Kiss Players cassettes, including Rosanna) disappeared in the post apparently.
