    To be honest, other then "NEW" stuff i'm just going to buy my toys from the Junkion exchange. great prices and all the people i've dealt with are nice.

    Best place to buy TF toys on the net, right here on TFW! hell i'm going to meet a local guy tomorrow that I found on the forums to buy a Super Black Convoy! No shipping, No Waiting!

    Some of it is a little, however for my situation, it's worth it. They have what I want, the Pile o' Loot is awesome, and they actually ship overseas. They also have stellar customer service. I'll gladly give them a few extra dollars.

    Some stuff may be a bit pricier compared to other places, but they have kick ass customer service (and the occasional sales/clearance deals) so I don't mind. I love them. I have a bunch of stuff in my Pile of Loot right now and am just awaiting the G3 trailer so I can ship everything.

    For the most part I've been quite pleased with BBTS. MOST of their prices are pretty close to everyone else, but in some cases they are a little over priced. Their shipping's pretty good, and their customer service is really good.

    After what I've been going through with HTS as far as SDCC exclusives go, I forgot how spoiled I was with BBTS.:thumb  They are over priced on a lot of stuff, but you definitely get what you pay for. I've made numerous orders with BBTS and never, ever, had a problem. HTS--not so much.:mad

    BBTS, what they have is, that, even when you pay in some cases, more than retail, or even, more than a good price, those extra dollars pay the top service you are receiving from them.

    I like BBTS. You could have gotten a NEW Unicron from TRU for $5 more.

    You will pay a few dollars more at BBTS, most of the time. Still, after ten years of stellar service and immediate responsiveness to inquiries, I rarely go to other retailers.

    Also, just another quick experience... I went to another large TF retailer earlier this year to make a purchase, and noticed the price on one item had gone up by about $30 from what it had been a few weeks previously (like from $80 to $110 or something like that). Because I was also purchasing over $200 worth of other stuff in addition to that item, I asked if I could have the original price, and was (politely) told no.

    A little flexibility there would have made me want to do more business with them going forward, instead of just for stuff I can't find at BBTS.

    Their new US stuff? If you buy by the case it's only a couple of dollars over retail+tax.

    I find that their 1st release import prices tend to be very competitive. Sometimes it seems that the other stores wait for BBTS to post prices and then just post a price a couple dollars below them. I have a $600 pile of loot with BBTS right now that's only going to cost me $20 to ship. If I had ordered them from other stores as they became available it would have cost me $60 or more to ship.

    unless i find something that they dont have instock or i missed out [wst dinobots], i use bbts first
    pile of loot saves shipping, plus it allows me to get the stuff when i want, instead of the package sitting out in front of my house overnight in the rain [blizzard.com store]

    i had an issue with them on my 1st order, the resolved that within 24 hours
    i once tried billstoysandgames... took 6 months for the issue to be resolved
