TF Kingdom.com Stay Away!!!

Hey Folks,

Just a heads up to stay away form TFKingdom.com. Once an excellent source of G1 repro stickers, the guy who runs the site just takes your money with zero intention to ship anything. Bought off him a few years back with zero issues but now appears to have gone all scammy. My order was showing as "waiting fulfillment" for weeks and he never responded to any inquiries. Quick search on google shows similar complaints about the guy. Thankfully I paid through PayPal and was able to get my money back.

Old news now, sorry.

The site has been dead for over a year now and lots of reports on that. I myself found out when it had just turned sour, and had to do the request for a refund too.

I no longer buy anything from an unknown (that I've never bought from) unless I either see feedback about the site or they reply to an inquiry I'll do first.

But I can understand that you didn't know if you had bought from them before.

I wish someone would provide info to what happened.

Old news, but still good to note for anyone who might not have known.

Reprolabels.com (ToyHax), has always been good to me for stickers. They are also a site sponsor here.

I made the same error a few months back. I needed Paypal to step in to get my refund. Toyhax/Reprolabels has been very easy to deal with and I strongly recommend them.

Re: TF Kingdom.com Stay Away!!!

I don't think this is a scam. I think this is just that the site no longer operates and the owner never took it down, so all the automated processes for sales and whatnot on the website are still active even though there's no one watching to fulfill the orders.


As morbid as it is, it almost makes me wonder if the guy just dropped dead or something.

Old news or not. I bought from him before so why would a suspect an issue now? Just trying to inform people so cut me some slack.

Hopefully you got your money back. Too many scammers out there lately. He could be leaving the site up as hopes to people buying from him and earning some free dough.

Hope you've seen the Northmen Collectibles thread on this forum. The worst thing about that store is that they're still in business and are pulling this kind of shit.
