Was just wondering what ever happend to that git who robed me along with many others, I remember one guy from the states he owed a fortune to. Hopefully he was run over very slowly by a steam roller at 4mph

Who is the git tokyo hobby or just a guy who works there?

 

 

The guy that owns the place I think his name was Miki not %100 sure though. I ordered two guns from them once but I only ever recieved one gun, and that took 6 months to arrive. From memory they seem to have a very bad history for customer service.

 

Its pointless trying to email them they always ignore them, especially if its a complaint. I even managed to aquire the owners personal hotmail address but I never recieved a reply. Sadly I did not pay via paypal or credit card so I have no way of getting the money back.

For some reason that had me in stitches for ages! :lol:

 

I remember there was a HUGE thread on the old forums about TH, but perhaps this can be stickied and made into the equivalent of the old one - a single thread for all TH discussion?

It was not a joke, I hate him with passion. There's not many people I want dead in this world but the owner of Tokyohobbyb.net is one, he rank's up there with Zarqawi, Ant and Dec, and a few others in my book.

Ant & Dec :lol:

 

I have to agree...

 

No, I know you weren't kidding, it was just the way you phrased it that had me in stitches.

Hey all, I posted the review on Tokyo Hobby that's in the reviews section and I used to get at least 1-2 emails a month from peeps who had not searched for the review before they decided to give Tokyo Hobby/Miki Nakamura (It's a guy with a Japanese girls name.. go figure) their money.

 

I'm pleased to say I haven't recieved an email for a few months, at least 6, regarding any probs with Tokyo Hobby. I dunno if that means they are still doing bad business, or people are searching for retailer reviews (I got that reveiw posted on a few sites) before they buy.

 

I can say that it looks like Tokyo Hobby is still barred from using paypal, since i guess it was too easy for peeps to get their money back :lol:

 

You get what you pay for! Beware! and support your local airsoft retailers!!!

Gotta say, if I'm buying a rifle for £250 then it's worth paying £40 of that figure for the ability to go round and "discuss" any shortcomings in item, hence my preferance for buying from the Uk.

 

I wonder how come retailers Like Z1 or AA don't try to set up a deal to become official Uk importers for WGC etc?

I'd be amazed if that isn't the arrangement. It must be a nightmare trying to find a wholesaler otherwise.

 

On the other hand, if you're expecting HK prices as a result, you won't. Shipping, tax and higher property and staff costs all add to the prices they charge.

 

Anyone around the UK airsoft market 2 years ago will agree (I think :) ) that prices have dropped considerably, in real terms, since then.

 

AEGs were £300+ as were WA pistols (and KSC/TM were barely any cheaper).

 

Cheers.

This is so ironic cos I received my first email from tokyo hobby this morning.....Given what is said in this (and other threads) PLEASE DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS SITE. I am not representing them in any way here, I just found it spooky that this topic be raised the day i get this email from them so thought I wud share.

Haha, so that same bloke has been cheating ppl around the globe i see :D I thought his name was Mikio, well whatever. Hes been running a finnish website called AirsoftFinland, and before that, tokyohobby. Hmm i think the website has been online about a year or more. Really dunno how many ppl has he tricked here in Finland. At least one of them was my fried. He ordered bits and parts from AirsoftFinland an it ook about 2-3 him to get them, and that was after he threatenned to take legal actions against Miki(o).

What happened to the shister at TokyoHobby...and Area51...

Dunno about Tokyo Hobby, never ordered from them

Area 51 did high quality gear just bl**dy poor on the getting gear to the customer. I had a couple of orders with A51 only one order had a problem (soon to be sorted) I think they stopped serving the airsoft public as it was not cost effective.

Agh!! I hate Tokyo Hobby. I remember when me and my friends decided to raise out bar in airsoft and start out with Tokyo Marui's, well we foudn Tokyo Hobby and it had the best prices, so we ordered a ton of guns. Well I hate wire transfers(the only way, tokyo hobby allows you to order) Because you send your money to some unknown bank and your screwd. Well it's 36.50 for a wire transfer to Japan, and well, we got Express shipping, speedpost or whatever. The shipping was insane. So it took 2.5 months for my guns to come. I seriously thought it was a scam then, but wasn't sure.

Yes he is still there, and still up to the same old tricks on top of Airsoft Finland and Tokyo Hobby net he now has yet another web site http://www.wwiiguns.com/

 

I have now had an order in with him since December 2003, happy anniversary MIKI ,

 

And so far he has only managed half of it, for this there is absolutely 100 % no excuse.

 

Latest weeze was to say he had shipped the balance for me to have 1 x TM AK47 arrive by Parcel force.

 

This guy is a blot on the Japanese Nation, and I am very much suprised they have not done something to close him down. Make the steam roller 2 mph :angry:

If we all know that tokyo hobby is a total ripoff, then how do they do any business. It just doens;t make sense. At one time were they real ?? Did they ever deliver?

Well, they did eventually delivered my order.. After Arnie posted my review on them... and after a few months of stress and bs and bottom line is they still didn't send 100% of what i ordered... http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/?filnavn=/r...obby_review.htm

 

But think about the minimal "overhead" for hosting and designing a webstore... Obviously they don't invest money in stocking items. So I think for the business suckers he already got the sites paid for, for a few years at least.

 

I was lucky to have gotten Arnies help and my dollar amount was low on the order I placed. I do know of people who sent $15,000 - $20,000 (US Based Airsoft Retailers) and never recieved parts... So that would easily pay for the web hosting... Anyway any joker can put a website up with some flashy graphics and low prices. Doesn't mean they'll deliver.

 

And yeah I tend to only hear form people AFTER they order from Tokyo Hobby and they have problems. So I don't know if they ever reliably shipped any orders.

Topic merged to keep clarity and stop threads dispersing around the forums. If we keep all the retail threads of woe in this forum section it makes things easier to read.

Crapola, just got an email from someone else who just ordered from TH in January, 05... I can't believe Tokyo Hobby is still around pulling their same "take your money and don't send product" ######.....
