    Thi is for the people who have ordered from them before:

    How long do they normally take to reply? I sent them an e-mail (I think thats how you order from them) for a pre-order request on Tuesday 4/24. Just wanted know if it was unudal for them to tak so long to reply, so I know whether or not I should send them another request.

    I was also wondering how good they are when it comes to box quality? I'm a MISB kinda guy and that is always a concern for me. Especially when I site doesn't give you an option to pay a couple dollars more to ensure you get a better box.

    Thanks in advance!

    Any time i've bought something from him the box has been fine. He does take a few days to repsond sometimes - selling toys is his sideline more than a full time occupation.

    I sent them a advance order request on Monday and have yet to hear from them. It really sucks that they don't have a online checkout system.

    Well, it is a holiday in Japan currently, maybe that's the reason why. I know that's why HLJ hasn't processed or responded to the order I made late last week.

    There are times that Ryan (@ F2F) just gets swamped too so he can take a few days to reply. He is good about replying though.

    I ordered from them years ago, back when they were dubbing cartoons still, as a way to say thanks. I preordered THS01 from them. They never responded to my preorder request as he deemed it "unnecessary."

    (Not to say the preorder was unnecessary, but the response was. Apparently I was to assume that the preorder went through fine unless told otherwise).

    I ordered MP05 from him, it was my first time doing business with them. Yes, he did take a few days to respond, but I had heard a lot about him being reliable so I didnt mind. He packs his stuff VERY securely (Megs' box was bubble wrapped, with crumpled magazine pages on top for a buffer) and he even threw in a free Superlink PVC. And after I got the figure, he e-mailed me to warn me about easily breakable parts; very nice customer service.

    Just an update, got a reply to my e-mail today. I e-mailed him about pre-ordering on April 25th, like most of you guys did.

    I got my e-mail from Ryan this morning too. Seems like a pretty cool guy. If he as good as people say he is I plan on doing a lot more business with him.

    I ordered the entire Renewal line and MP-06. Even if he charges $100 shipping (which I hope it's not) it will still be cheaper than ordering all of them from BBTS or TFsource.

    For anyone who has ordered from him before, how are his shipping rates?

    I got in on the Encore Set. Prices were much cheaper than any other place.

    Yes it was, about $50-60 cheaper (for all 4) than the closest compitition. Then again, so was MP-06 Skywarp...at only $75 it's $20-30 less.

    So what are FTF's shipping rates? I'm curious about this also.

    Ryan should give me a guesstimate on the shipping costs sometime this week. I say guesstimate, because the size of the packaging for the Renewal line is; as of this point, unknown.

    I'd guess they estimate based off of the TFC packages cause they can't be much bigger or smaller anyways.

    No complaints about F2F. I've ordered quite a bit from him over the years, including the entire Beast Wars Returns line, a bunch of KP stuff, and MP-05. Nuttin' but good things to say, but he really could use an order system.

    Glad to see someone else completing the Renewal line. Just got confimration from BBTS that Rhinox has arrived in my pile of loot!

    I did agree to terms and my down payment with him on Monday, but have still not received a request for payment.

    Once he contacted me about what options I have to pay him [full price, 20% deposit etc] he replied to my mails the same day. I paid him on either Tuesday or Wednesday...
