    I'm thinking of trying them out for something BBTS is out of stock of right now. Anything I should know/be concerned about?

    Be prepared to hear a lot of negative feedback about compromised billing info in the past.

    I myself have used them many, many times. Never a problem, great service, and great packaging.

    They have the absolute best packaging there is.

    Use paypal to make your purchase, and you have nothing to worry about. Everything will go perfectly.

    The company that handles their credit card stuff has had bad security issues in the past. Paypal lets you dodge any possibility of that happening to you.

    Like others have said use Paypal and you should be fine. I was one of the victims of their company that handles their credit card info, so protect yourself and use Paypal.

    You should know that they're awesome. Be prepared to use them for your third-party TF purchases from now on.

    TFsource is ok. But I still prefer BBTS because of the more flexible PoL and returning options. But TFsource is probably the best option if you happen to be a MISB collector, since I keep hearing their packaging is god-tier.

    I stopped shopping with the after them Great Shadow Scythe Scalp of 2010. With that said, their packaging is amazing and they were always so friendly. I miss the good days.

    They are my go to online store for new TF's that come out, such as Fansproject stuff and all that. As long as you use Paypal you are set, I've used nothing but Paypal with them for years and nothing has happened, they ship faster then anyone else I've used and packaging is great.

    Yea, between their handling of my CC info twice, and them popping off in their first few replies when they tried to gouge on Shadow Scythe they have lost me (as well as other small issues with them). Sure it may have been their processer on the CCs, but their response wasn't great in either situation. Not like their packaging is that much better than the other retailers.

    Gonna be a sad day in my collection if they get another FP exclusive.

    I prefer bbts for the pol and that they do not charge you for a preorder until its actually in stock. Since they don't have the item you want just make sure you protect yourself when using tfsource.

    I've not had any problems. I've got the iGear Coneheads coming soon, and I don't expect any problems there either.

    I couldn't agree more. I've purchased through TFSource just once (WST Blaster & Shocky) & my credit card was fradulently charged. Never again will I do business with TFSource. Never Again.

    The only reason I'd buy anything through them is if it's an exclusive from Fansproject. Anything else I'll just look elsewhere. My credit card got bombed and caused an enormous amount of hassle because I ordered a few things from them. It appeared to me that they just overlooked the whole issue and just copy & pasted responses to every email regarding both incidents.

    If you do need something from them, use paypal or be prepared to suffer the consequences.
