Does anyone have experience with this seller?

The website claims
"Robotoyz is an Australian online store specialising in various pop culture collectables and merchandise such as Star Wars, Hasbro Transformers, Takara Transformers, Japanese imports and 3rd party products."

I've never heard of them before. I'm inclined to give them a shot but I'd love to hear any feedback first.

Cheers.

I’ve heard of them for quite a while now and actually did my first order a few weeks back. I’ve only heard positive things about through Facebook so fingers crossed.

pretty sure that is run by someone who posts regularly in the TCCA facebook group and seems very reliable and communicative but I have not tried myself.

I had a not so good experience with them. As soon as you place your order, you get an email/text saying 'item is on it's way'

It's not, all of their 'in stock' and 'warehouse items' are from Japan or O/S so after you place an order, they do the same so it ends up being a massive wait for 'in stock' items.

They don't make that info readily available.

I've met the guy who runs it, but I've never shopped from him before (in all honesty I think he's kinda pricey). He's originally from Sydney but he's now living in Tokyo.

If he is smart, start up proxy shipping service.

I have bought multiple items through robotoyz, I had the similar issue with items being classed as shipped but if you email him he is reasonably quick to respond and easy to deal with, last week I received my wei Jiang ultima guard from him and it was well packed and unable damaged, I received a damaged POTP Optimal Optimus and he was happy to replace it with a better condition one

I've done some business before with him. The email is slightly annoying but the service and goods have always been great.

Does he also sell on ebay? I've bought from a seller on ebay with a similar name....

I was a little bit surprised by the initial wait, but the owner was quick to reply to my queries. I've bought other items subsequently and have been happy with the service.

Got a big order through them this week, well packaged and good communication.

The only let down is the very, very long wait - essentially buying from the wholesaler after you place your order, means that although it’s Australian you’re waiting international timeframes for arrival (actually, longer because of the double handling). That’s fine if you’re not impatient but worth keeping in mind because the site doesn’t do a great job of explaining that point.

Still planning on using them again, probably!

I recently received a couple MPs via their ebay store. Very prompt responses to my questions and the package was well packed. While they won't be my go to I would deal with them again opportunistically via their ebay store.

Can anyone tell me what is the deal with robotoyz shippimg? Seems pricier than other stores. Ive ordered single items before but not seen any way to combined shipping of items on site. Is it any cheaper with combined items or do you still pay around 15 per item?

In other stores i can ship multiple items for the one price, do they do anything like that?

I asked on facebook but answer was a bit vague and didnt really answer my question.

Yes, if you order multiple items at once they do combine shipping, but if you order items separately over time you will automatically be charged shipping for each separate order. Send them a PM or email and see if they will refund the shipping for items you want to stack up and send at once.
