Default Robot Kingdom (RK) (Hong Kong) feedback

I placed an order for some Micron Legend figs

Takara MC-07 Devastar ("Scavenger")
Takara MD-08 Galvatron
Takara MC-10 Stepper ("Sideswipe")
Takara MD-07 Rampage ("Wheeljack")

got them today, in typical 5 day delivery from RK, as awesome as always at that.

Heres what I got, ignore the shirts.


They sent me Super-mode Ironhide! He isn't even on their site! I'm after him as well so its not bad at all, should I feel pissed off that they buggered up my order? What if they do it again, but I get something crappy like BM Nightscream!? *shudder*

In the end I guess I came off the winner, I can always re-order Stepper next time, but I figured you all should know, just in case.

Their shipping time is getting worse (for me at least)...

My order paid 20th October, was shipped 1st November (12 days later).

And my order paid 27th October, is still yet to be shipped (been 13 days now).

Nothing was pre-ordered, and all items were in stock (and not close to running out either).

if items are in stock, they shouldnt take that long to ship. probably have over-sold on their stock allocation?

my last order was shipped the same day alternity thundercracker was released and the previous order before that shipped the same day i ordered.

Thumbs up

Hey guys,

Wanted to offer up my first experience with rk. Purchased on the 24th. Was at my office today (28th). Extremely surprised. Extremely well packaged (my biggest concern).

Apart from learning a lesson about shipping this kind of thing to the office (see the branding on the delivery box below) this was a really great experience. Will definitely be buying from them again and soon.

Some pics for reference and my haul.

Appreciated the comments already in this thread (and forum). I am a recently new collector (but old school tf lover) and am looking forward to sharing with you over the journey.
