    Just my opinion. Not going to rob this thread.

    If you really want to know, there’s about 2-3 threads about robotoybase if its legit. You can vouch and dog pile over there.

    The worst thing that can happen to a business is losing its customer.

    Sir, I recommend you live, learn, and move on to another vendor.

    BBTS
    TFsource
    Showzstore
    Tf-direct


    And not to forget to leave your opinion to warn others about your experiences with that vendor.

    TF-Direct is okay but their packaging is horrible. Easily the worst packaging i've gotten from a company and it kinda soured me on them. One box i got from them was so bad because they used a far too small box and it wasn't even close to box shaped. The box could have easily been rolled around if i tried. One of the figures inside (FT Koot) had the upper right corner of the box crushed too. Just be careful if you are into pristine boxes. They are NOT the place for that IMO.

    I agree, they got shittie boxes. But dyam they”re cheaper than bbts and tfsource for 3rd party stuff.

    I had the same issue when I purchased video games from Play-Asia. It's one hundred percent due to the delivery company and government wanting and collecting import tax/tariffs.

    TFS Express is innocent.

    Now somebody lock this ghastly bitch-fest of a thread.

    Nope. They leak credit card info, price everything higher than it’s supposed to be, and Bully 3rd party companies into forcing other vendors to match their prices.

    Tfsource is on the list of sites that needs to die for the betterment of this hobby.

    Damn if they're that bad why do they get such prominent placement here? Now you have me worried about whether my card can leak even though i paid through Paypal! I'll have to keep what you said in mind, though. I've only made one purchase there so far and maybe that'll be that if that's true. This stuff is expensive enough without strong-arm tactics to raise prices.

    Yes, that was 3-4 yrs ago. TFsource has weak credit card info security, where they went with a new credit card system. This also happen to another company as well, hard to remember.

    its hard to beat tfsource black friday deals, i usually drop $200 every year.

    BBTS never has credit card Security breach.

    Tfsource has the breach every couple years. But remember the more recent and impactful part, which is them bullying companies into raising prices.

    I remember reading about that.

    Most of my third party stuff comes from showzstore and tfdirect.

    tfsource black fridays is the only reason why i still go there for old third party toys

    Anyone know if it is at least safe to use Paypal on TFSource? Might be a dumb question but i like knowing just to be safe!

    I'm pretty sure it is safe but ... On my Nintendo switch, I can buy games with PayPal without entering my password each time.

    Of course, but I mean, they aren’t going to admit it. And we have a well known store in China that talks with 3rd parties saying TFSource has bullied them and that causes a raise in price for figures.
