Re: online retailers

They’re generally quite good. Been around for years and quite reliable. Some people have had very slow customer service lately, though.

TLDR: if it’s an item you can’t find elsewhere, go for it. If it’s readily available at more common sites, stick with them.

Re: online retailers

I was planning to buy some older 3rd party kits/figs from em year or so ago, but we were right in the worst part of pandemic and wasn't exactly well off, so I never actually did it

Had a lot of emails asking questions with the guy though, and he was pretty good at responding

Always felt bad about not following through, for how helpful he was

Re: online retailers

That's where I got my Big Powered set from. Everything went smoothly. Can't complain.

Their shipping is really expensive compared to other retailers in China.

What specifically are you looking for? I can definitely recommend some good stores.

iron factory final city commander (shipping is like $2.50 CAD):

This site is super reliable, similar to Show Z Store.



That Newage Coneheads set is freaking hard to find at a reasonable price. The sites that had it at a fair price are sold out now (since it's an older set). The Robotoybase price isn't bad, but with shipping it came up to $147 USD. Totally depends how much you're willing to spend (or how bad you want it). Sorry I couldn't find anything for this one

Re: online retailers

Robotoybase is totally legit. Good prices but shipping is high, so be prepared to pay a bit extra, or order multiple things to lessen the blow.

Re: online retailers

I used to make purchased from Tony @ chimungmung, but now the chimungmung website notes to visit robotoybase. I have purchased from both chimungmung and robotoybase and would not hesitate to recommend them.
