    Great prices on the Encore figures, but I have a feeling it's because they are not selling so well which makes me sad.

    Awesome! I so want to pick up an Encore Metroplex and MP Skywarp among others. Some I already have, including 2 loose original Metroplex's, but he was one of my favorites growing up so I'd love to get a MISB one where I can add stickers and keep him minty MIB. Can't wait to get MP Skywarp. The only problems I have to wait a while before I can afford to buy them in my budget.

    When exactly is the last day for this sale?

    Say what you want about those particular items, but 99% of the time TFSource offers the best deals on the net. If you want a "rip off", you need to look elsewhere.

    Those are some really good deals. I should send this link to people; maybe it will give them some ideas, instead of socks.

    I just wanted to check in and give people an update on my excellent interaction with Curt at TFSource. My order arrived about four days after I ordered it... holy crap these guys are fast! I was a bit surprised by the shipping cost initially, but the speed and attention to detail more than validate it. Everything was packaged EXTREMELY CAREFULLY... it's obvious that the people in the shipping dept. are consummate professionals who take packaging graded TFs very seriously. It's like doing a rubik's cube taking stuff out... I almost didn't want to remove my toys! (Almost.)

    I got Masterpiece Starscream, Masterpiece Skywarp, Henkei Astrotrain, Henkei Ironhide, and Henkei Silverbolt. Couldn't be happier. The Masterpieces were on sale and supposedly in "ungraded" condition... but I looked the boxes over and really couldn't see any kind of imperfections... If I had asked for them C9 and they arrived in this condition I would have been perfectly satisfied.

    Unfortunately they seem to be working the kinks out of a new credit card system over there... I got charged my full order cost TWICE, so I sent Curt an email and he responded within a few hours. He apologized for the inconvenience and told me a refund would be coming within 48 hours. The money was back in my account the following day. I just had to write him back to tell him how professional everything about his service was.

    In this day and age of corporate ambivalence toward the customer, it's really, REALLY refreshing to be treated so well, and with such respect, by a company. ESPECIALLY a web site that sells toys to grown-ups. These folks really know their stuff. I will certainly be ordering from them again soon.

    Also, I wonder how much money they could possibly make off a toy that has already been imported from Japan or China, with the dollar as weak as it is, ESPECIALLY considering that the items are now on sale. They're probably taking a loss on some of 'em.
