    Just saw a truck with the website www.capturedprey.com on the tailgate.

    Much to my surprise it is ran by a local guy here where I live in Louisville KY.

    Has anyone ever ordered from this site...Just want to get a feel if they are reputable...

    Looks like they do a lot of convention work etc....

    http://www.capturedprey.com/

    Id like to support the local guy if I can...Any feedback appreciated

    Owner is named Sidecutter not sure if he is a member on TFW2005..it would surprise me if he wasn't....

    Sidecutter is definitely a member here. Never dealt with him, but based on limited online interactions (IE posting in the same threads :lolol ) he seems like a cool guy. They had a great booth with good prices at last year's Botcon. I'm sure other members can vouch for Capturedprey!

    I'll vouch for the guy, I've ordered from him a few times and never had any problems. He's always posting in the KY sightings thread given heads up to us around the ville.

    Sidecutter is a great guy and posts regularly here on TFW2005. In fact, he had some news front paged this week. He has great prices and ships fast. I've done business with him in the past and am looking forward to doing so again in the future!

    I think Sancho has a banner in his sig of captured prey... Not sure if he sponsors them. There prices are pretty good compared to other online retailers..

    Boo. :)  You saw my buddy Highrise's truck. My van and the new trailer are at a shop now being redone with the new logo, and they make his poor truck look subtle... :D  Did you talk to him or did someone (le gasp!) actually read the Staff page? Poor page gets no love! :lol 

    Yeah and it looks like your tracking number finally updated today, to at least say it left the country. Not much, but better than the prior "Yeah, we have your box. Were you expecting it or something?" :D  So much for Priority huh? I'll be griping at them in the near future about why it took eight days for a Priority Mail parcel to even leave the country...

    I've bought weapons for bots and FansProject stuff from him. Total class act. Sidecutter puts that personal kinda touch with the ordering process that the big guys are all missing because of the size of their stores. To me, (hope I don't offend) comparing CapturedPrey to BBTS and ToyArena, et al is like comparing the local mom and pop store that is more personable in nature to Wal-mart, Target, etc.

    I bought a Lioconvoy from capturedprey in.. 04? Man, were you even open then? Anyways, great guy. I recently bought a United Megatron from the website, and something got fudged with the order.. Mr Sidecutter himself actually called me to explain what was up. I thought that was really cool, and I appreciate feeling like an actual customer, and not some number they use to generate an e-mail..
    Also, since you're in the thread, sorry I never called you back, bro, I was living in tents and helping people qualify on crew serve weapons. United Megs arrived just fine, and currently leads my Destron Emperor shelf.

    I've ordered from the site before. It was awhile ago, so I don't remember it a whole lot, but I do remember being pleased. :)

    Yessir, since the beginning of 2001. Over ten years now! :D 

    No problem, we got you all settled out in the end at least and you knew what was going on, which was the key part. Unfortunately we got shorted by the supplier on those, I'm just glad it was possible to correct the issue, even if it took a while.

    Does the fact that this IMMEDIATELY came to mind date me? :D

    Got my united megs through them when everyone else was sold out.
    Very easy to work with, would definitely order again in the future.
