Welcome Our New Sponsor - Captured Prey!

Posted on 01-05-2013 at 10:09 PM by Tony_Bacala under Sponsor News
TFW2005 would like to welcome our newest sponsor, CapturedPrey.com. These guys have been around for a while, have a good reputation, and have been active on the 2005 Boards for years. Make sure to try and support them if you can with all your Transformers addiction, I mean collecting, needs. Check out a note from Orson, the owner, below.
Hello fellow TFW members!

While I'm sure there are still many members here who have not heard of Captured Prey previously, there has been a clear growth in the number of folks here on the boards who know about us over the last two years. This great word of mouth advertising has been a big element in our ability to grow at an exceptional rate since the relaunch of the site in August of 2011, and I can't thank the fandom, here and elsewhere, enough for that. I'm delighted to have Captured Prey become the newest sponsor of TFW2005 and help keep this community running.

So, to kick this off, I'd like to announce a special offer for my fellow board members! I'm offering a limited number of sets of the brand new, just released Junkion Upgrade Kits from Lucky Rogers at just $52.00 for both sets! This offer is only good on the special listing, and you must use coupon code TFW2005CP during checkout to receive the special price! There are a fixed number of sets available under this offer, so once they're gone...they're gone!

In addition, the new year has brought us some great new pre-orders and lots of new items coming into stock! I've listed just a few of them below!

Thanks!
Orson "Sidecutter" Christian
Owner, Captured Prey

Preorded Maketoys The Fallen through these guys and am highly anticipating it's release. Will most likely do business with CP again in the future. Pretty much like having a Robotkingdom that's in my backyard. Congrats on the sponsorship guys.

Oddly enough I was thinking, "why thing hasn't happened yet?" just the other day.

Congrats on your growing business. You run a great business and you've earned this.

Awesome!

When I first came across Captured Prey, I was wondering how I hadn't come across it sooner. The more I watched the site though, I realized it was the kind of place that people probably only told close friends about, because the prices were so awesome. Similar to liking a local band, and not wanting to hold them back, but dreading the day they get recognized for their talent and get the big contract - Looks like this is what's kinda happening with my newly favorited TF store!

CONGRATS!!
Soundwinder
Congrats, and I can't recommend Captured Prey enough.

Sidecutter's great to deal with, service and shipping are fast, their prices are great. Honestly the best TF retailer I've had the pleasure of working with.
Astronut
shit, better get my mind together and decide if I want Quake Wave or not, now that the traffic is bound to boom.

Good stuff CP and TFW! Glad to see the store growing.
JetFormers
I'm about to freak out this is the first place where I finally found the Corbot V. War Axe for my WFC Optimus...Grr..OK FINE I'll give CP a chance and not order from BBTS
taterx
Congrats guys! I've used them before and they're great to deal with. I hope this gets you loads of traffic.
Thundercracker
Very cool. If TFW2005 swears by them, then they must be good. Went ahead and preordered that MP Shockwave.
CobramusPrime
Alright congrats, these guys are the best!

Thank you for carrying Hegemon!
Flexx Ark
Captured Prey has great service, prices and ownership! Orson goes the extra mile (literally at times) for his customers. I've done business with them several times and I've always walked away feeling valued as a local/general shopper.

Congratulations Sidecutter/Captured Prey staff!
brr-icy
congrats Orson, nothing but good things to say about cp
archieboy
Congratulations Sidecutter!
BooyakaDragon
Cool, I guess.

I can't order another item from CP until my Shooter Masters that I paid for almost a YEAR AGO actually ships, or I get my money back! Honestly, can't get my money back for items that's almost a year late? That's a swindle.

Are these "exclusive" items solely for losing customers? I mean, do they actually exist, or did I get sucked into Vaporware? Pre-paying for pre-orders like this makes CP a no go for me, there's a reason the prices appear so low, than something like this happens and you realize WHY!

Is there anyway to at least get store credit for this debacle?
Shizuka
Nobody asked you patrice!

Well alright! This is great news as Captured Prey is a phenominal shop that I highly recomend.

So you are placing all the blame on CP for a 3rd party item being delayed, gotcha. Unless you ordered a ton of them its a fairly cheap 3rd party item as well. Anyways theres always some negative nancy out there but in my experience CP and Sidecutter are great, they package your items as well as the big boys like BBS and TFS and ship fast. Congrats on the sponsorship.
Renidragon
I've ordered from CP a few times in the past, and Orson has always been awesome. I wish I had been smart and checked his site for Hegemon before I bought it on ebay - I wouldn't still be waiting! Won't be making that mistake again.
Snoopy Magnus
GREAT TO HEAR! I HAVE MADE PURCHASES IN THE PAST AND HAVE HAD ZERO PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER. THEIR PRICES ARE VERY COMPETITIVE AND THEIR SHIPPING IS ALWAYS EQUALLY RESONABLE. AS FAR AS THEIR MS TARGETMASTER STUFF, IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF CP IT IS THE FACTORY. DON'T KILL THE MESSENGER. I ALSO PURCHASED THEM LAST FEB AND AM LOOKING FOWARD TO FINALLY GETTING THEM IN HAND. AND WITH ALL OF THE DELAY I WOULD RATHER HAVE A TOP NOTCH TARGETMASTER THAN A CHEAP P.O.S. THAT FALLS APART AFTER THE FIRST TRANSFORMATION. WELCOME ABOARD CAPTUREDPREY AND I AM LOOKING FOWARD TO THROWING MY CASH AT YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE!

I am placing the blame of locking me into the "sale" for close to a year with nary a finished product to show for it. There have been "production shots" of these for a while now, they just kept being changed and the release pushed back, 3 or 4 times now, each a 3 month delay. I expect another update in March telling us how they still aren't done yet, because "bagging them takes so long" Seriously?

So that must mean it's going to take the small operation of CP forever to package them for shipment right? That's the current "delay" excuse, they are a small operation, so bagging them takes time. So there's another 3 months with CP sitting with my money, collecting interest on it, when I could have been collecting it and buying other REAL items with my money.

When they got pushed back from Q2 2012 to Q3, than Q4, pre-orders should have been allowed to be canceled. It was a pre-order, not a Kick-Starter funding, a 1 year delay a unacceptable, and since it's a CP exclusive, YES, they get all the heat for the delay. I didn't give my money to another company, they did, that's on them.

Great news!

Slightly off-topic: any chance for more MP Soundwaves? I'd love to give my sale for this guy to CP.

....hahahahahaha. Anyone who knows Orson knows how hilarious this is.

Anywhos, trolls aside, I can't believe CP hasn't had this a long time ago. Orson is great, great customer service (to cvmaas - just curious, did you actually ever email CP/Orson/Sidecutter and ASK? Or did you just start bitching on the internet?), and is a great guy.

The only bad side of CP is when they don't have the toy I'm looking for, or it's sold out, and I have to buy it elsewhere

Apparently yes, since I did just by using the form on their website.

I agree with you that it's an unfortunate situation with the Shooters that left a bad taste in my mouth, however I found that I was able to communicate with them and get the situation partly rectified. It has definitely made me think about ordering from manufacturers who aren't as established. CP is still a good store though IMO.
phelps
This is awesome news. Orson runs a great store and 99.9% of my online Transfromer purchases go through him. CP has great service and the best part is he is fan first.

For the sake of clarity, since it seems to be needed - while Sidecutter does have personal ties to the people behind Mastershooter Collectibles (they are based in nearby cities and we all know each other in the area), he is not MSC. He does not hold any stake in MSC in terms of finances, ownership, design, production, or otherwise. MSC is an independent company.

And as I also know the people behind MSC, I can verify that the issue was not changes, it was the factory taking multiple revisions in order to properly follow the requirements that were detailed to them in the beginning.

Personally - I'm content to just let it live as-is. I know that I'll get my toys (which weren't even that expensive, granted I only bought the set to go with BotCon Spinister) as soon as they're made. Noone is scamming anyone. Release dates change. Shit happens. And yet again - if you contacted Sidecutter, he'd work it out with you.

I had great experiences with Captured Prey. Fast shipping, great communication.
