    You seriously need to stop including Maketoys Giant Yellow Set B in these as "in stock", it's been out of stock for over a month.

    One of a few instances where TFS price is higher than BBTS (MP SS, RA, and SW). I like their free shipping if you spend over $150 deal though but are they charging a bit more to compensate for the free shipping deal? I wonder.

    I hear G1 Megatrons voice on the MP Sideswipe mould: We must suck this mould DRY!!!

    And I predict Suntreaker from retooled mould
    Red Alert
    Dead End

    Takara will suck everything outta this mould.

    Has to be. Right now the prices are fairly close if you factor in shipping. TFSource should do a drop though, they are going to lose a bunch of preorders if not I think

    Hmm. BBTS is a decent amount less than TFS & Robotkingdom as well.


    Shipping is $13.

    Looks like TFSource has dropped their prices to match BBTS. That plus free shipping over $150 and we have a winner for me :)

    TFS still more expensive. If you take into account the free shipping then might be more/less equal (if you buy all 3 new MPs). I like TFS's new perks (free shipping, points for free figures, pile of loop copy) but if they are going to charge a bit more to compensate for the perks then BOO.

    If TFsource had the same "click to cancel" preorder policy as BBTS I would probably start ordering from them again.

    Not being able to easily cancel a preorder is a deal-killer.

    The prices for the MP12/12A and MP13 were the same earlier this morning. Looks like they raised it up $5 in a matter of a few hours. Strange. I knew I should have took a screen shot, it was too good to be true :eek:

    That was/is the biggest drawback for me. Although I have canceled 3 things recently and it was not a problem. You just have to email them which is the shitty part.

    Once you emailed them through their little online form, how long did it take for them to cancel your preorder?

    Next day. I have had hit or miss success using that online form. Email them directly at customercare@tfsource.com. That's gotten me a response every time.
