Best site to order from?

Postby IronhideTFX » Tue May 22, 2018 8:26 pm

Hi team.

Just trying to find a list of sites best for ordering Transformers to NZ.
What do you all recommend?
Mainly after some MP recolours coming out. Or trying to track down a Devastator.

Or if there is already a post on here about it, that would be fantastic.

I've used BBTS a bit and has always worked out well...

I’m a big fan of Robotoybase. Decent prices, quick shipping, and they’ll mark the value down for customs.

For newer stuff Amazon Japan and Anime export can offer some of the best prices, but can have a small window to order in

I think most of the time it comes down to "who has what you want"

I went with hlj but I imagine the preorders are closed now.
I use Mohock a lot, he was basically the only way I could get fans toys omega.
Otherwise it’s robotoybase

Hey Omega, where are you planning to order from? I recently placed a few orders for a bulk lot of smaller items but have started building a new list.

My recommendations are...

ActionRobo
RoboToyStore (my favourite)
Robotkingdom
Mohock (local)

I find BBTS, TFS too expensive in the shipping department.

Keep checking Hobbylink Japan. Their pre-order has been on stop status for months but from time to time it will become available again for short periods.

Showzstore for third party, can be slowish shipping though
I also use bbts for joe stuff and official products as I know they are generally well packed and reasonably quick.
Mohock for some stuff
And also evilbay from the bigger sellers with great feedback is another option I use alot.
no sig as photobucket nerfed it all

Crap, forgot about ShowZ! Yeah, best prices most times. Great service too.
