    NEST BB and SW 2 pack
    ROTF Legends Devs

    From:
    BBTS

    If you can edit the poll, you may want to add TFSource to the list, being as popular as they are.

    BBTS is my main online retailer of TF's. I just made an order with TF Source, so if I have a positive experience I will use them for pre-orders too.

    For normal releases I just wait till I find them in store. I don't preorder something that will get a mass release at retail. For import preorders I use BBTS.

    Primarily BBTS, mainly because of the Pile-of-Loot feature, so I can wait to ship my TF items until my Green Lantern figures (or whatever else I've ordered) comes in. I use TFSource every once in awhile, and they're a great company to do business with, but they aren't my first choice.

    BBTS and TFsource. Starting to use TFsource a little more, and BBTS a little less though.

    BBTS is my main stop. Every now and then Hasbrotoyshop as well.

    From the replies in this thread I may need to check into TFsource.

    It really depends on how common or rare/expensive the particular figure will be.

    I find that alot of the more common figures will hit Ebay first (& in numbers) before BBTS/TFsource etc. get them in stock. So the 'Bay will be my first port of call (since I live in Aus & I just can't wait... :D ).

    But when it comes to the more expensive/rarer figures, I search for the best online-store price (BBTS, TFsource, RK, HLJ etc.) & place a pre-order with them. But I'm still waiting for TFsource to get WST Shocky & Blaster in stock... :rolleyes:

    Have used BBTS & Toyarena before, was quite impressed with the level of service for both thus far.

    BBTS always: never had any complaints with their service so far... and they let me pre-order stuff without charging me until the item comes out, so if I change my mind before it comes out I can just cancel my order :D

    i've notice that robotkingkom. If you order from them, even with shipping from the asian rim. It is still cheaper then bbts.
