    VINTAGE DEPARTMENT: The vintage department has been sorting through a
    variety of older listings and slashing prices 35% to 50% on most older

    handy list available using the link below. There are 300+ discounted
    items available as well as some new vintage listings mixed in - check it

    THANK YOU!!
    -----------

    I'd like to personally thank you for helping to make this our best year
    ever, through your continued support we've been able to vastly expand our
    selection and keep those hard to find items coming in.

    We have a variety of major website improvements coming in mid to late 2008
    to make the shopping experience even better, and we look forward to being
    able to bring you an even wider selection of items in 2008. We are
    currently working on cleaning up the catalog and removing all the sold-out
    listings, as well as working to restock as many of the sold-out items as
    we can. This will take some time, but once completed, the site will be
    much cleaner and easy to navigate.

    The Vintage Department is going to be doubling in size and listing many
    more loose & packaged vintage items, as well as a huge variety of packaged
    items that are out of production and generally 2 to 10 years old. We've
    been ramping up our vintage buying and have a nice stockpile of great
    items just waiting to go up - look for increased listings to start in
    around a month.

    Based on product previews from companies like Hasbro, it looks like there
    will be an amazing amount of very nice new product coming out. We'll do
    our best to carry everything we can, and as always, please email us with
    requests to carry new product lines & list preorders for new items we may
    not have got to yet. These requests are very valuable to us, and we will
    do the best we can to carry the items if they are available to us.

    Thanks again for all your support! We will continue to work as hard as we
    can to refine and improve both the website, and all the behind-the-scenes
    operations that are so critical to keeping your ordes arriving promptly,
    accurately, and in good condition.

    Have a Happy New Year, and thank you for being our customer (some of you
    for 8+ years now!). We truly appreciate the trust you place in us to help
    build your collection. Its been a pleasure to work with you over the
    years, and we truly value your patronage.


    Thanks!
    Joel Boblit
    President

    Some good deals kinda sucks that they can't be used against any of the 2007 TF Movie figures because it is still classified as "New"

    And the rest of the Transformers are all out of stock....So if you want transformers it pretty much is a SOL

    While I do buy stuff from bbts(just recently had my pile of loot shipped), I'm never a fan of these sales, because for some reason an item that's been out for 6 months is "new", and there's a TON of stuff that's been out of stock for ages that they don't just remove.

    Exactly, here we go again with the "sale". While I've bought things from BBTS before, I hate when they do this. Why not have a real sale, at least just once

    I just went through the site and was hoping to get some Sports Picks and they have hockey series 5 from years ago marked as "new". Great.

    I'm kinda sick of seeing $15-20 worth of stuff in stock that I'd buy NOW (none of that Pile of Loot shit) and then seeing the cheapest shipping is another $10 on top of that. No thanks.

    But that's precisely why the pile of loot is great. I buy crap I won't mind getting in a month or two, and then only pay $15 shipping. 1 alternator, 2 deluxe tf's, 2 model kits, an anime figure, and a couple of encore tf's. If I bought all of that seperately, the shipping would have been through the roof. Now the catch is, when I added all of that stuff to my pile of loot, almost all of it was pre-order anyway, so it wasn't anything I needed urgently.

    But, that's not the point. They need to clear the out of stock items from the site so you can actually browse for things, and update the status on these old "new" items.

    You have to hunt on these things for the good deals. I just saved $80 and got a normally un-findable figure at below original Japanese MSRP. For that, I'm happy.
