    I also placed an order with Yestertoys 3 WEEKS AGO!!!! No shipment, no withdrawal from my bank account, and no returned phone calls!

    Please keep us posted on what happens with Yestertoys. If you continue to have problems with them I will remove them from the list up top.

    I went through my bank statements and Yestertoys never made my withdrawel either. I'll have to give them a call tomorrow although it sounds like they won't be answering.

    I usually check out www.360comics.com for Star Wars Toys and Statues first becuase they usually have the best prices. I found them by looking on Froogle a couple of months. I am a bit of a collector, so I am usually trying to stretch my budget so my toy and statue habit does not break the bank.

    I noticed they have a bunch of other Star Wars Products when I was browsing the site.

    I emailed and called thier customer service a couple of times and they were helpful and friendly. I like to talk to a real human who knows what I am talking about when I call. They even found a statue for me that they did not sell on thier site!

    I am not trying to go off on a cheerleading rant just for www.360comics.com only... I have also shopped at about 10 of the other sites mentioned and have not had a bad expirience to date. I think I started shopping online when the internet we invented, and one of the first things sold online was Star Wars collectibles. Go figure!

    Has anyone picked up the Darth Sidious Lightsaber Replica yet? I was looking at the both of them, but wanted to hear what other people thought first.

    I also shop a bit at Master Replica's, but I think they were already mentioned in the thread. The coolest thing I have purchased from them lately is the Predetor 2 Spear. It is a little on the fringe, but hey, I am not *ONLY* a SW collector. They have a ton of SW goods!

    Yestertoys office phone number is disconnected and I called the cell phone number listed on the site and left a message. No call back though.

    Based on that I am going to remove Yestertoys from the list. If you get your order we can add them back in.

    At least they didn't take the money out of my account. I'll keep an eye on the transactions to see if they eventually do since they still have my cc number.

    I have left 4 messages on "Tom Hogan's" cell phone...no reply. A friend of mine also sent an email and a "feedback." Dangerous and disturbing this puzzle is...

    I'm a little worried considering that someone has my debit card number! Especially since it can be billed at any time. You can't really cancel an order if you can't contact anyone!

    can i suggest midcotoys for the U.K.? just add dot com for their website.
    i ordered a C3 talking vader figure from them late on monday afternoon, 4.45ish, which has just arrived this morning, wednesday 9.00a.m. in minty case fresh condition! [face_dancing] best thing is, it only cost £14.99 (plus p+p!), cheapest i have seen it anywhere for. excellent customer services (i ordered over the phone).
    really impressed so i thought i would share this. :D

    P330 - the sites listed in the second post have all either been used by me or have been recommended by people who have had successful transactions with them (except for auction sites such as eBay where it is down to the individual seller feedback). If you have (or someone else has) used that site without problems I will be happy to add them to the list. I've never used them personally.

    LAJ_FETT - Well, as you may guess, I live in Brazil but I'll order to the US and a friend of mine will bring the Anakin ROTS FX. The Saber Vault is the cheapest one I got and the shipment to the US is free. Well, here I go...

    Illbeats - have you used all those sites successfully? I think Entertainment Earth might be in the list already as I have used them.

    Thanks Illbeats. I added in all the ones not already on the list. I left the Yahoo one off because when I clicked on it I got sent to a site for small businesses to sign up. If you have a particular store on there then we can post its URL.

    I haven't used this site (hadn't even heard of them until now..). Maybe one of the other UK collectors has used them.
