    If your talking preorders, it all depends on who gets it first. If its in stock, both companies usually ship your item in 24 hours.

    I preordered Alt Megs from TFSource (months in advance) and people who ordered from BBTS were posting on here that they received theirs before mine even shipped.

    No complaints here though. The packaging from TFSource was awesome (and I don't even care about packages/boxes, etc), and their Customer Service replied to my emails very fast.

    I never ordered from BBTS, but I give TFSource a thumbs up.

    BBTS shippped my Crazydev upgrades weeks ago, haven't received them yet. Ordered FP Defender and got it within a week. I'm in Germany so I'm going with TFsource for now on.

    They're both really fast, and shipping is about the same really. TFSource may be faster though as I got a shipping notification for my Warbot on either a Tues or a Wed, and I got him in the mail on a Sat. This was my first time ordering with them and was completely pleased.

    I've had stuff show up the day after I order it from BBTS - with normal shipping.

    It helps that they're only about 30 miles away.

    I have found BBTS charges more for shipping.


    I bought Knight-Morpher from TFSource and regular Postal Service cost $7.14 and I got sent a tracking number. I bought the City Commander set from BBTS and USPS shipping cost $9.00 with no tracking. Both boxes were almost exactly the same size and weight.

    yeah bbts charges way more for shipping. i prefer tfsource. i dont care who gets it first. tfsource to me and my experience is a better price on product and shipping. also they package better and have had grat customer service with tfsource. granted they dont carry everything tformers that bbts does, but again everythin they dont carry bbts charges way tooooo much for.

    Its been my experience that TFsource ships out my orders usually less than a day after I've order, whereas lately with BBTS, I'm waiting 2 days or so between ordering and them shipping.

    In BBTS' defense, I chalk it up to them being a far larger company, since they deal in far more than Transformer toys.

    I haven't ordered from BBTS in some time, but if I remember correctly, TFSource was a bit faster.

    Tfsource is better imo. I ordered Encore Trailbreaker last Monday, received it by USPS in 3 days. BBTS takes about a week or so, but I order from both places.

    From my own experience, TFSource is quicker to ship stuff out and shipments arrive more quickly compared to BBTS. From preorders I've made, for the most part BBTS did get their stuff in more quickly a wee bit more consistently but not dramatically more than TFSource.

    With BBTS in Wisconsin and TFSource in Minnesota; those companies are very close to where I live. I ordered my Warbot Defender from BBTS and got it the very next day. TFSource will take about several extra days to ship any items to my address as in the case with Superion add-on (snowman version) kit arriving about 4 days after I placed an order.

    From my personal experience (keep in mind I'm in Canada, so Intl shipping) TFsource is both cheaper and faster than BBTS. BBTS is still pretty decent. But I've had better experience with TFsource shipping.

    The 3rd party that handled TFsource's billing info did get hacked. Some people ended up with charges made on their cards. As far as I know I think most of it was caught before any serious damage was done to anyone. Since then both TFsource and the 3rd party company have apparently stepped up security.

    There's always a risk when ordering from any online store. You just need to take every step you can to protect yourself when shopping online. Even then, there's still always risk. Thankfully the hack didn't effect me. I've had great experience with both TFsource and BBTS.
