    Everyone's got to make a profit.

    I've gotten most of my Binaltech's from Digital Toys, no complaints.

    I've got quite a few things from there...he's a good guy. Everyone online marks them up for the convinence of not having to drive around and find nothing.

    Markups are also because most online shops cant afford big warehouses as easily as corporations like Walmart can.

    I've gotten plenty of figures off there, my RM Star Saber and Victory Leo are still on my desk from the last order I made there. I mostly went there for older figures which I passed on years ago, BW Neo mostly, great deals now though.

    I've also gotten quite a few Binaltechs from DT, and I've also had no complaints. DT is really good to deal with :thumb

    Agreed - Mike is an awesome guy. I've pretty much bought all my imported Transformers from him. Local stuff I usually just get in the stores as they'll eventually show up, and all the online stores mark them up.

    They're more of a backup store for me, but they always come through when I order. I got my first set of Classics from BBTS and all my next ones I'm just going to get at retail.

    If you want a better deal and can't get them at retail, why not just ask on here? I often go out of my way to get stuff for fellow fans and I only mark things up by $0.50 - $1 to slightly cover gas, time etc., plus actual shipping, and, when I'm poor, Paypal fees. Fellow fans rule (they've helped me out too)!

    I agree with what everyone has said.

    I've ordered from them years before I knew about BBTS. I got my Fort Max from them.
    Then I started shopping around and split my orders all around: Akibara, Image Anime, JRs Toyworld, Bills Toys & Games, Supercow, etc. At this point everone just ran out of stuff I want.

    DT is the bomb, and even though they mark up, there end of summer sales are the best.

    Buy 1 BT get free is crazy.

    DT get my frist order all the time.
    Unless Image-anime has stuff is stock. But those guys mark up like crazy but its close and I can walk over there.

    I got the anime Vector Prime from them a few months back, and they're great to do business with. They're probably my second favorite online store (BBTS is first, Joel RULES :)  )

    Digital Toys rocks. Ive bought many hundreds of dollars worth of stuff from them and its always shipped very well and their prices are just as reasonable as most other online toy stores. Plus Ive gotten some really good deals out of their ebay auctions (i.e. Galaxy Force Soundblaster for ~$35 when it first came out!)

    Digital Toys is one of my two perfered stores. The only detriment is I have to pay taxes as I am in the same state. But I am always checking his prices in comparison to other stores, before I buy anywhere.

    They are definately a top notch store.

    I've only ordered from D-T once (Perceptor reissue), but the shipping was quick, the item was well packed, and they threw in a free SCF PVC (color Road Caesar). :thumb 

    Meanwhile, though, if you want Classics, I suggest Amazon. Last time I checked, all 6 were in stock at retail price. MSRP + no tax + free ship if you order >$25 = WIN.
