    1) Finally, Superion Aerialbot Add-on Kit from Fansproject Arrives!
    ===============================================================
    After much a-do, the highly anticipated Superion Aerialbot Add-on Kit from Fansproject is now instock!

    We've already started getting these ready to ship out, and will start shipping out immediately. The good news is looking at the set, it's definitely worth the wait! Great display packaging complements this already stellar piece, and if you haven't ordered yet, now's the time!

    We also know this one was significantly delayed, and we are working to ensure that TFsource receives goods from Fansproject on all future releases in a more timely manner, and they have given their word that this type of delay won't happen again. The G3 Trailer is already on its way as well, so if you haven't preordered it yet, combine ship both and save on shipping!

    6) SDCC San Diego Comicon 2009 - Transformers Exclusives!
    ===============================================================
    Another year, another great San Diego Comicon! TFsource was fortunate enough to get a limited amount of two of the hottest SDCC Exclusives this year! SDCC Soundwave & Cassettes Set could be the most impressive Soundwave reissue yet, as he includes Ratbat, Ravage, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw all in amazing collectible packaging! Next is the Transformers Animated Megatron Bust! 6" tall and highly detailed, this piece brings the animated Megs we all know and love to life! Each piece is a set of comicon history, and we don't have many pieces to go around, and it is not known if we'll be able to get more in the future so have at them while they last! Both scheduled to arrive in early August.

    7) New MP-08X Masterpiece "King" Grimlock - Special Edition Figure
    ===============================================================
    Now up for Preorder! MP-08X Masterpiece "King" Grimlock is a special edition figure released in limited numbers, and features bells and whistles not found on the normal MP-08 release. He includes a crown, sword and gun with different paint applications. His coloration of the main figure also is done more to match the US Comic version of Grimlock, and will also come in custom collectible packaging paying homage to the US comic series as shown! Keep in mind this is not a mainstream release, and is not available directly through Takara/Tomy and is priced based on this, so it will likely be a very limited edition release. Bring on late night with the "King"!

    11) Encore #19 Big Mission set #3 and Disney Label Donald Duck
    ===============================================================
    The ever popular Encore series continues with Encore #19, Cassettes Big Mission set #3! This set includes some very popular cassettes: Frenzy, Rumble, Laserbeak and Overkill! Three of the four cassettes in this set have never been reissued before, so a great set overall. Also available for preorder and scheduled for a November 2009 release is the next in the Disney Label Series: Donald Duck! It appears he changes from a VW Bug to Donald and back. The Disney Label Mickey Mouse was a big hit and Donald should deliver up to the same level of expectations! Furthermore his VW bug is not just reminiscent of Herbie, but everyone's favorite G1 Minibot Bumblebee as well!

    A lot of great stuff there. It's just too bad I won't order any of it from them. As long as their communication with customers stays as piss-poor as it is, I'll take my business elsewhere.

    maybe your company has better servers.

    TFsource, if they even have a dedicated server, may be using a low-end consumer model for all we know.

    Too bad to hear about the bad experiences with TFSource. I've always had great luck-Curt's been very responsive to my questions.

    As for this thread, it's a little deceptive-the G3 trailer's not in stock yet. Wish it was though.

    I have, quite a bit. IT departments and server limitations and settings vary. It's not magic wands and abracadabra.

    I've never had to wait more than 48 hours for a response, usually less than that. Even on weekends.

    I too have never had to wait longer than 2 days for a reply from Curt. I have, and will continue, to buy the majority of my TF's from TFSource.

    TFSource are less than 20 miles from where I live. Instead of USPS Priority Mail, I accidentally picked FedEx Next Day Air on an order. They called me to discuss how to handle the mistake. They sent money with the order to make up the difference. There was also a transaction problem with an expired card. After reordering a product with a new card, they canceled a previous order. I have ordered several products from them and never had a problem with them. You can pick two out of three business practices from any company. They are, low price, quality products, and customer service. I am willing to pay higher prices for quality products and customer service. As far as I'm concerned, they meet the quality and service requirements.

    yeah, I'm just a fan of bbts and their pile of loot and customer service, but every once in a while I've ordered from tfsource. they package their products immaculately, have good pricing, fast shipping, and great support. I had a missing piece to my city commander, photo'ed what was missing, emailed it to them, and within a few days had the missing piece!

    No, they're great. Their website is messed up due to not being able to send e-mails via their website, so you e-mail them through their other e-mail addresses, either Curt's or the Shipping E-Mail address. They respond, have good customer service, if they didn't they would've been out of business long ago. One bad experience with a company doesn't make up 100% of all their transaction. For example, everyone loves BBTS, I dislike them very much, but that doesn't mean they suck. I've dealt with BBTS quite a few times and my order has been either messed up or I've been overcharged at times and yeah, they fixed the problem, but it took them such a long time. I'll never deal with BBTS unless I have to, but many love BBTS, it was just my transactions that didn't go smoothly.

    I remember BBTS having a lot of problems too with e-mail responses when I first did business with them in the late 90's. You have to remember that TFSource's new website is just a year old, so they may have some technical issues from time to time. I used to be an IT guy before moving to Japan and even big multi-million companies have computer problems too.

    But really, I've had no problem ordering anything from either company. I've ordered the City Commander/Shadow Commander armor from TFSource and some Marvel figures form BBTS. They both pack well and ship in a timely manner. I just go with whomever is cheaper.

    Caved finally on e-hobby Black Version Convoy, but can't see how he's a Nemesis with that Autobot sigil. He'll be a 'good guy' in my collection as Nucleon Quest Convoy is.
