Never heard of them but that means nothing. They look like they only ship to the US though. If you need a postman, let me know.

I've had one order with them that didn't go very well. Back when I was strictly focused on mailers I ordered an Ackbar from them. I waited several weeks and it never shipped. I finally emailed them and did get a response about it being at another warehouse or something, but eventually one showed up on eBay, so I bought that instead. I didn't have any payment issues or anything like that and from what I remember communication was good. I just felt like I had waited a reasonable time to ship and it was not the service I expected from an online store outside of eBay. They do get plugs on the RS front page a lot as they are a sponsor and I've heard good things from other collectors, so maybe I just got lucky. Smile

I've had a pretty bad experience with him as well. Wouldn't recommend buying from him.

I'll write it down later.

The problem is the items he advertises on his site are not the actual items he will send you when you buy.

I bought a Vader Tie, an Imp Tie and a Cloud Car from him back in 2008 when I had just started collecting.

The Vader Tie I didn't get as he said afterwards it wasn't in stock. The Imp Tie box was described as C8 but was warped and damaged. Also the electronics on the vehicle didn't work. The Cloud car was described as having a box with inserts and with components still in baggies, but what I got was a loose Cloud Car in box.

When I inquired and told him I wanted to return the items his response was this:

Quote :
i dont want those coming back. i never have exactly the same items pictured in stock. for the price they are worth the money you paid for it. please reconsider not returning the toys. i do not refund any shiping whatsover.

I was much a rookie back then and didn't visit any forums so I left it at that. But I never bought from him again although there were quite a few items on his site I wanted.

I just visited the site by the way, and they still have the exact same items for sale as they had two and a half years ago. That can't be good.
