    Looks like they sold out. There's an Amazon Warehouse Galactic Man for about $49 but the rest are all third party sellers for $53 and up.

    As for other deals Dorkside has a pretty good sale.
    Various Micromaster 2-packs are $2.99
    PotP red swoop is $11.99
    Studio Series Dino is $15.99
    Gigawatt is $29.99 (not a sale but he's in stock and people have been looking)
    Studio Series Grindo & Ravage is $39.99
    Free shipping on orders of $99 or more. If you collect other lines there's some Black Series, Marvel Legends and McFarlane figures on sale too.

    In sad news, the EE code of 2102212 for the $15 off $99 seems to be expired today (lasted I think for over a month).
    I did find this site, Today's best Entertainment Earth promo codes
    that seems to have logged a bunch (if not all) the EE coupon codes in case folks want to try their luck and/or if one of the codes is reinstated.

    In current sales, I didn't realize tfsource was having a 'real sale' going on, let alone extending it, otherwise I would've picked up a G2 beachcomber/arkose for $50 before they sold out. Nonetheless, the xtb youth stunticon limbs for $45 & $50 are nice prices, along with a few other items in their link:
    https://tfsource.com/weekend-sale/
    Also, buyer be warned that purchases from them should be done through paypal and NOT using your credit card info directly through their site, as they've had multiple instances of people's credit card info and/or PII being compromised, on multiple occasions. The threads that go into details on the (at least) two different windows of occurrences might still be on tfw, but locked.

    Have a safe weekend!!

    Pretty bold accusation to toss out without any links or suggesting the posts may no longer be on the forums, which I don’t think any posts get deleted.

    I did a quick search and couldn’t find anything. Can you provide some links please? I’ve ordered from them multiple times, plan to continue to, so I would like to know more about this. Thanks

    Edit* I’m not trying to be a jerk, sorry if it may read that way. I’m just trying to get some clarification. Thanks for the help ✌

    Bold accusation but entirely true. The place is just scammy.

    @Omega FQ ,
    You know you can use tfw's search tool to isolate hits that only include terms in the title right? Also, I typed they might be "locked" which is different than "deleted"

    Below are two hits I got after 'a quick search' using tfw's search tool... what prepopulates in google as options when typing in "tfsource credit" into their search bar are even worse results (or informative results depending on your perspective). But I'll keep it contained to links on this site and repeat, "

    Also, recommend people that decide to purchase there utilize discretion with their credit cards (perhaps use PayPal as opposed to their credit card directly & don’t store cc info on that TFS profile), as I don’t think they’ve resolved the card theft issues

    (Tfsource security).

    Warning about TFsource - Store credit system broken

    I can see why some who don't do a lot of third party purchases might not know, but as far as I knew tfsource's credit card theft was an understood fact in the community. Both myself and a relative had our card info stolen from them. What makes it worse is their refusal to acknolwdge when it happens.

    You’d probably have to have been here a while. I don’t do any 3P purchases but I’ve been on this board 10 plus years and seen more than few incidents with them to judge for myself as “not isolated”.

    We have lots of choices so why choose them?

    Thanks for posting. My dumb ass was searching EE, fack.

    And thanks everyone for pointing out issues you’ve had or seen.

    The forum continues to be a treasure of info I learn from everyday.

    While I agree and have used them a LOT in recent times, I don't think we should sweep warnings of such things under the rug. I use a virtual card with limitations when I purchase from them. Just letting people know they should be proactive and protective isn't the worst thing.

    The one time i used them, I had an issue. Wasn't credit card. but talking down any negative talk to warn others is lame.

    Very good point, and I do agree here, but let's keep this thread on topic and only post deals, coupons, sales and whatever. There are other threads for this discussion. Not here.

    Maybe here:
    Gave TFSource another shot and I regret it...

    Gamestop has Transformers statues 20% off this week with some figures discounted even further. The 9" PCS Collectibles statues retail for around $50 but Grimlock, Bumblebee and Starscream are down to $23.99 each.

    Not a sale but if you missed out on Earthrise Quintesson Allicon or just want to add more to army build, Best Buy has them in stock for $19.99. Currently available to ship and store pickup.

    Look at the total on the side. When you add super saving shipping it's $19 but there's also a $19 credit that cancels it out.

    Oh dang, I never hit “continue” after the shipping screen because there was no “free shipping” option. Thanks! Hopefully this helps another clueless person reading this thread.

    Apply code GAMEWATCH for 10% off. Pay with paypal linked with Discover for 5% cash back. Use Rakuten for additional 3% back. Total will be $113.88 with tax and Free shipping, after getting cash back.

    Brings it down to a much more reasonable price. But I'm still on the fence lol..
