    I've heard nothing but good things about TFSource.

    Hasbro, however, fails miserably if you want mint boxes.

    Exactly. TFsource really does a great job packaging Transformers.

    If you're a MISB collector TFsource is one of the best places to order from. Hasbro on the other hand is for the loose collector.

    I get everything from overseas from TFSource. Have been for a very long time, awesome packaging, good prices, and minty boxes!

    Yep, TFSource does a great job packing their items. I've never had anything arrive in less than pristine condition and they use additional layers of paper and bubble wrap than other stores.

    Hasbrotoyshop is kind of a crap-shoot in terms of package results. I've never had a problem with them and all of my items have arrived from them in excellent condition...but I've also heard a lot of horror stories.

    Yeah, TFsource does an insane job packaging. Each figure is covered in a cellophane wrap, then packed in a cardboard sleeve, then packed in bubble wrap, surrounded by styro peanuts, in a box lined with bubble wrap again. Crazy.

    But the bigger concern I have with them is their response time. Sometimes I have to send an email two or three times over a week just to get a response. They claim it's because of the Spam Filters...in that case...turn down the sensitivity on the filters a bit, would ya? When your spam filter is killing off concerned customer emails, you have a problem.

    Yeah I agree, out of all the shops I've purchased from TFSource was the best in terms of communication and packing.

    Only thing I've ever gotten from TFSource was MP Megatron (prepaid for Classics City Commander Armor, but haven't received it yet). Box was beautiful, and they snagged me an un-modded, so it was sealed, too.

    I have had nothing but good experiences with TFSource. Their prices are reasonable, packing is hands-down the best I've seen, and their customer support is excellent.

    I've used TFSource several times, they're my default online store, I've got stuff ordered just now.

    They're packing is superb, and Curt's communication is great, highly recommended.
