    I was thinking about ordering a couple items from TFsource.com and just wanted to know what kind of experiences people have had with them as a store. Do they pack their products well and ship promptly? Has anyone had any bad experiences with them? I usually order from ActionHQ but the shipping price is about $30 cheaper at TFsource in this case.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I have never dealt with them personally, but I've only read good things about them.

    I have never dealt with them directly either but their reputation is top notch so I don’t see any need for worry.

    Welcome aboard too :thumbs2:

    Well, I decided to take everyone's word for it and went ahead and ordered from TFsource (Pepsi Prime and Battle Convoy, for the curious).

    Thank you so much for all your kind help! :thumbs2:

    I ordered my eHobby Blitzwing and Soundblaster from them. Very reliable. Items packed very well and got them within a week. I'd recommend them highly.

    Packaging:
    Here's an example of TFSource's work.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All boxes came bundled in bubble wrap, surrounded by paper. Each TF is individually wrapped in a thick tissue like paper. It feels like silk, but you can't see though it.

    TFSource ships when they get their items in. In January, they were the last to get Pepsi Prime and Anime Galvatron ... but the first to have e-Hobby Galvatron II. They're extremely quick with the shipping as soon as stock arrives.

    I ordered a BT Skids from them early-ish Dec. and it was delivered by mid-December and I live in Canada! I was amazed. I have nothing bad to say about their service at all. Top-notch online store, very well packaged and extremely fast shipping (like someone else said, as long as it is in stock) also very competetive prices. I think with shipping and exchange they were still cheaper than most online stores and a good $10 cheaper than any import store locally.

    If he carries it, I buy it from him. No if ands or buts, best experience I have ever had with an online retailer. Currently have my GF Soundblaster pre-ordered with them.

    They're one of the best, no doubt about it. The only knock I can think of on them is their selection is more limited than other stores, but if they have what you want in stock you can order from them with no worries.

    Curt is trying to expand his selection, and items such as GF Soundblaster and Primus were the result of people requesting said items. If you email him showing interest in something he doesn't have he will try and get it, and chances are at a price a hell of a lot better than BBTS.

    The new BW set he has instock is not the type of item he traditionally stocks, having historically been doing only G1 and BT orriented stuff, but he is expanding his selection based on requests. So if there is something you want drop him an email about it.

    I've purchased, and continue to purchase items from TF Source all the time. They have excellent prices and my packages always arrive in tip-top shape.

    Also, I've emailed Curt a few times and he has always been very helpful, polite and courteous.

    Highly recommended!
