    The site is significantly worse than I remember it being last year, when it seemed like they had finally improved.

    I'm also in the boat of those who paid via PayPal but got error on confirmation page and only have an email from Paypal so far.

    What an agonizing 45 minutes. After a dozen times of my order not going through due to various errors from the server, I finally got it to process successfully! Picked up a bumblebee set and a Throne set. Oh, and I'm on an airplane over Texas during all this!

    This is going to be interesting. I'm from the UK, but my girlfriend lives in North Carolina, so I've ordered the Throne and had it sent to her place so I can pick it up when I visit her in October.

    Now, last time I ordered something like this, Titans Return Arcee, HTS apparently had a fit trying to figure out why my order was made with an English debit card, and didn't ship until they were called and told everything was hunky-dory. Let's see if the same happens this time :lol

    Got my throne ordered. What a shit show that site is especially since I wanted to change my ship to address to work so the wife doesn't open and see the invoice.

    Called. They're overloaded and can't take my call. This is utterly insane. I don't want two of these!

    Giving up friends...processed my PayPal twice but got an error message on HTS both times and nothing in my order history. This is too much a headache rather than spending 5$ more for the Takara release from BBTS.

    Not worried about PayPal, they’ll cancel the unprocessed payment. Just tired of all this madness not working straightforwardly.

    Whoa, really? I finished my order not five minutes ago and as far as I can tell I got one. Maybe the last one! That was too close for comfort!

    Reporting in. Order completed but holy hell was this rough. Initial trial used regular web to pay, failed and payment kicked backed (nice little plus and minus for the upcoming statement). Went to paypal and went through. Confirmation of payment 2 minutes later. GAH

    Went to an error I was "proceeding to payment" for 20 minutes. Now it's out of stock. What a load of shit.

    Probably because Star Wars went up on a different day, reducing web traffic

    Yup, can't add Optimus Primal to my cart. Looks like he is sold out now.

    LOL, I understand that! I got an email confirmation, but it took about 45 minutes for the whole process.
