    I placed a semi large order with digital toys...everything listed in stock...never ordered from them...generally how quick do they ship after payment is sent?

    On average, it took anywhere from 2-3 days for it to be processed and handed over to UPS. At least for me.

    A couple of times it took a week before it even hit the truck (and neither one was a preorder, they too were in stock items.) but generally it took about 7-8 days from making the order, paying for it (and having that confirmed) to shipping, and then to receiving.

    It also depends on what day you made the order and it was shipped out. If it was Thursday or Friday, I'd imagine he's going to wait for Monday to roll around to get it on the first available shipment.

    It also depends on how far you are from Massachusetts. UPS Ground can average anywhere from one business day up to a week.

    I wouldn't worry, if that is what you're doing (I dunno, just covering the bases here.) Digital Toys is respectable and trustworthy. I've ordered countless times from them and never had a problem.

    They tend to be cheaper than BBTS on a few things as well. (shipping costs as well.)

    I agree - Digital Toys is usually pretty quick. They can have a bit of difference between when things are released and when it says in stock on their site - but shipping is usually pretty quick.

    He does have a small issue when release dates are moved back - he doesn't update the site very quickly. Double check on BBTS and see if it's actually been released yet.

    I typically only shop at Digital Toys and Automaton. I'm always pleased with Digital Toys service. If you're really concerned - send Mike an email and ask him what's up.

    none of it is new stuff...japan black incinerator and some of his clearance things for a few kit bash future projects...bruticus and overload are already out and they are in the order to...mainly getting the last few TF's before the $$$ pipe gets turned off till summer time...then i will get Movie devastator and maybe one leader movie TF...possibly ...dunno though....

    otherwise the last two i get this year will be the two TRU exclusive repaints...otherwise done for the year...sad that we are only 2 months into the year....

    I've ordered from Mike several times. I've never had any problems that he's not communicated with me before hand :)

    From the time you order to the time it gets to your door:

    1-1.5 weeks.

    Wow... Digital-toys was the first online store I ever ordered from. Got the TFC reissues 1-4 from them in a package deal. I've bought several times since and had no problems what so ever. Hopefully it's just slow going because of the size of the order. Also keep in mind that just because a toy has been spotted at retail does not mean the online store has them in stock. I've yet to see a Bruticus around here at all. He may not have them yet either.

    I sincerely doubt Mike ripped you off. He's just not that kind of guy. However, I will admit that people can change over time and anything's possible, so I apologize if my positive review ended up being misleading in any way, but I still believe Mike's being completely honest with you and/or having problems.

    You might be surprised, you might end up with a refund and an explanation at the very least.

    I do understand your anger and confusion though, I've been screwed with online too many times to keep count.

    Sorry to hear you order experience with them is/was poor, sounds like the same crap I am dealing with Hasbro Toy shop. Ordered Universe Inferno, Cyclonus, Hound, Starscream, and Cheetor back in December and I am still waiting. But back to Digital Toys, like most have said, I have ordered from them several times without issue. In fact I usually got the package 2 or 3 days after order but that could be due to the fact I live MA only 75 miles away.

    Yeah it does. Never had a problem with HTS until now. After a few calls and emails it all got sent today. Too bad I will be sending all the deluxes back because I was able to get them all for $7.77 at Wal-Mart back in January.
