    1)Has it been confirmed one way, or another if HTS is going to restock the Rodimus Alternator for sale?

    2)I am a MISB collector, if I order a case of toys to be split between myself, and 3 friends, will it arrive in good shape, or will it probably be damaged?

    I have never ordered from HTS, and I am just getting interested in newer toys, so I'm sure this is old news to everyone on this board. Please Help Me!!!!

    Thanx guys, any help is greatly appreciated.

    1. Wait and see.
    2. Maybe, maybe not. I've received stuff pristine, I've received stuff bashed to hell.

    1. Has not been confirmed
    2. I am also a MISB collector and have ordered from HTS 3 times. So far so good.

    HTS kinda throws stuff in a big box, then slaps a line of puffy air thingies around it and slaps it closed. Or so my experiences have shown.

    Of 60 GIJoe MediVipers I ordered, about 7 had f-ed up cards, thrown in the box pretty harshly. Out of 25 Alt Ricochets, I think 1 had a slight ding in the bubble, so maybe its a value thing. :) 

    After the medi-viper incident though, I am scared for my destros that are on the way. I purposely ordered a tit menasor afterward so it wouldn't be in the same box crushing the hell out of them.

    1. Someone on this board said that they restocked Alt Nemesis Prime a week after he was posted on the site. I guess you'll just have to wait and see.

    2. I've had no problems with my toys or their boxes arriving in bad condition from HTS. But some have had other experiences. I ordered 2 Jetfire Classics Voyagers and both arrived in C9/10 condition.

    (1) Currently unknown.
    (2) Everything I've ordered from HTS has arrived in excellent condition, with no damage to the boxes, though I do think they could stand to be less stingy with the bubblewrap and other packaging materials. I have heard some horror stories about people getting stuff damaged, but not sure how much of that would be due to the post office.

    Two other comments I'd make about HTS: First, they sometimes take awhile shipping stuff after you order it. My Alt Rodimus still hasn't shipped yet; that may be due to volume of orders for that item, but this isn't the first time I've had something from HTS take a few extra days to ship out. Second, I find their shipping speed to be very slow (takes ~1 week for me to get my stuff) compared to other online retailers; don't know if anyone else has seen that.

    Thank you everyone, I really appreciate the input.

    1)I guess I will get Rodimus from Ebay.

    2) I am going to roll the dice, and try my luck with HTS.

    Thanx again everyone!!!

    ^Harrisburg, PA.

    I just got my first order in today! It arrived in excellent condition! My Classics Minicon 3-pack was kinda shoved in there and the card was slightly warped forward, but not bent. I easily straightened it without making a bend mark.

    I received:

    -1x XEVOZ FIREDRAKE REPTOSAUR vs RUNESLAYER ARCASTER Figures.

    -1x TRANSFORMERS Classic Mini-Con 3-Pack: CLEAR SKIES TEAM (THUNDERWING, STEEL WIND & NIGHTSCREAM).

    -2x TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS Ford GT RODIMUS.

    I'm currently waiting for 3 more orders to arrive! Hopefully they will be okay.

    I reccomend ordering more than just one alternator from them. order something small too, so they're forced to use a bigger box. when I ordered nemesis prime last year, he was shoved into a shipping box smaller than his actual packaging. the plastic dome was destroyed and nemesis prime himself was getting shoved down THROUGH the cardboard he sits on.

    1- We have no idea at this point.
    2- One quarter of all HTS shipping department employees are elephants. These employees sit on the orders they process before putting them in their shipping boxes. Which leads to many shipments arriving with the contents smashed while the shipping box is pristine.
