Kivtoys? CRAZY Prices on Micro/Parkflyer Planes!?!?!

Check out this website: http://kivtoys.com/shop/index.php/ho...champ-rtf.html
I was looking on eBay and under the sponsored ads and found Kivtoys.com. I was looking around and found a UM T28 from parkzone for $65, and the champ for $62. Is this too good to be true? I have never seen anything like this before!!!

Wondering the same thing, they are showing Appentice S RTF for $220, with free shipping. This is $79 less than anyplace else. Seems to good to be true, which probably means it is.

Interesting. I'm very skeptical though...

I saw this as well and did a search for more info or reviews and ended up here. You would think that ebay would only let those with letgitimate sites advertise on their site? Does anyone want to take a chance and report back? If you use pay pal you should have some recourse if scammed.

"Couple nasty looking switches here, but I'm not going to be the first." (Young Frankenstein reference).

Looking at their website shows their address as a PO Box. That's somewhat disconcerting...

The LEGO company's address is a P.O. box.


(Yes, I used to be into LEGO's)

I looked into it. They don't even have customer service. They have a P.O. address and there site seems SUPER sketchy. I'm going to take a guess and say they're very fake. They don't have reviews and it seems like no one has ever bought from them.

There is a phone number on their site if anyone wants to call and see who or what answers....

I was so ready to pull the trigger, but too many red flags.

At one place in their "about us" statements it refers to "free parking". Where? At the Post Office?

I ordered a BNF radian.

Haven't heard anything from them but they are "verified" on paypal.

I'll let you know if I have any luck, will probably contact paypal.
