Is this place trust worthy? Never heard of it before but I'm thinking about buying from there.

There are guides for buying from there, I thing it's huge in Transformers KO buying circles.

Yep, like eBay it depends on the seller. Look for shops with good reputations. There is a thread about it in on TFW with a list of good sellers. I've bought 3P and KO TFs there and it has become my goto for those items.

The word was a release for the 1s Roy this month but haven't heard anything.

my hikaru 1S PF order got cancelled again (4th time) not sure what's going on with that. It was scheduled a month after Roy's valk.

Buying directly on taobao is a classic case of "your mileage may vary". Some seller has good reputation and ships on time. Some others prefer to sell to whoever can pay the higher price first instead of shipping it to the pre-ordered people first to maximize profit. There were couple threads expose those sellers on Chinese macross forum. So if you can't understand Chinese, I strongly not recommend buying from there.

Biggest problem with Taobao IMO is that the listings will be up, you can buy the item, and then it turns out that its not even in stock. Some sellers tell you right away while others dont bother until you contact them to see whats up with shipping at which point theyll tell you its coming in next month.
