    I was going to order some stuff from BBTS but I saw that tfsource has some of the same Henkei figures cheaper.

    What are your thoughts on TFSource.com and BBTS.com? Good, Bad, meh... ??

    Mostly BBTS and TFSource. I dont buy off of evilbay that much anymore, rarely in fact. Every once in awhile from Captured Prey. I used to from ImageAnime but not anymore. Ive also bought from HLJ. Ive never had a problem with any of the above mentioned. But, I would say TFSource packs the best with BBTS a close second.

    TfSource has the best shipping i've ever seen. Frickin out standing.

    I use BBTS for some stuff, mainly due to the pile of loot feature that is great imo.

    Some ebay on sweet deals, and the Junkion here, only had one incident with a board member, but EVERYone else has just been awsome to deal with.

    BBTS is A++, and probably the place I order the most. Never had even the slightest of problems with them, and I've done multiple transactions with them over the years to the tune of thousands of dollars.

    90% BBTS
    10% Toyarena

    BBTS has yet to disappoint me, but ya, their prices are usually a bit higher. Toyarena had my henkei convoy for MUCH cheaper. And their selection of henkei seems a bit more robust than what's in stock at BBTS.

    I also buy from BBTS and ToyArena (but through ToyArena's eBay postings; I haven't tried their website yet), about 50/50. Both are highly reliable as far as the quality of Transformers I've bought, their shipping, & friendly service. ToyArena has been pretty good for me when looking for Henkei that are out of stock elsewhere.

    I mostly buy from eBay and BBTS; though Toyarena, HLJ, and TFsource occasionally get my business.

    - Domestic Stuff - Hasbrotoyshop.com
    - Imports/Add-Ons - I try not to buy many imports or add-ons anymore, but when I do, it's generally BBTS, with a few things here and there from TFSource. Despite their higher prices, I really like the Pile of Loot feature on BBTS and I've always gotten very good service from them. TFSource has very fast shipping, good prices and packs everything well...but their communication sucks; in all the times I've ordered from them, I've never gotten any order confirmation or shipping e-mails (just my PayPal receipt).

    tfsource.com exclusively for online transformer purchases.

    I havent bothered with bbts since they got rid of their flat rate shipping years ago. that was the ONLY reason I ever went with them originally, as it offset their horrible over-pricing.

    This!

    I like BBTS's user friendly system with the pile of loot and being able to cancel, add, and subtract anything to your loot and preorders as you see fit, and changing details of your account whenever you want. Worth the extra money to me. However, if I'm ordering some more expensive stuff, and I want it now and want it shipped with exquisite packing, TFSource is the way I go. However, a while back I used TFSource and was unaware of them using Fedex, and Fedex left the stuff on my doorstep. Nothing happened to the stuff, but I don't like that at all, and if I use TFSource, I send it where I know I will be when they arrive for now on.
