    Question, I'm probably going to return the TR Megatron I bought from TTB. I bought it prime or free shipping. Will they charge me shipping back?

    That's a good question, I'm sure there's someone here that might know that answer, but I do not. I'm also sure you'd have no problem selling it to someone here if you wanted to go that route.

    Thanks man! :)  Pictures soon!

    I'm going to stop everyone right there. The problem isn't with Amazon, it's with TTB. I bought from him on eBay and received the same level of slow service. His feedback is reflecting this, btw.

    He's just as noncommittal and the same amount of not helpful on there as he is on Amazon. Worse, even, because he doesn't have Amazon breathing down his neck.

    I Googled him. He used to have a physical store, apparently. It closed. Guess he couldn't hack it with ridiculous prices and subpar shitty customer service. I don't like the guy, I don't like him one bit,

    I bought a bumblebee and kickback from him, and instead got gnaw and a kickback with a defective neckjoint. Ttb at least gave me a partial refund for the bumblebee and i get to keep these. Just have to eventually replace kickback

    TTB is now selling gnaw $13.99 free shipping. :/ Now I feel like I tool I bought it more expensive from him a few weeks ago. (only $2 more, but still). How does he just change prices like that? He wasn't selling them as fast as he wanted?

    My birthday is later this month and my wife was complaining that the retailer she bought from cancelled a third of her order (despite not actually running out of stock) and took forever to actually ship it.

    I didn't open the box (because that would be peaking! ;D ) but I did notice it was from TTB. Not surprised.

    More than likely, yes. In my experiences if Amazon messed up the order or the item was defective they either paid for return shipping or just gave me my money back and told me to keep the item. If I returned something just because I didn't want it anymore I had to pay return shipping. That's fair, I think.

    This might sound odd, but I ordered the wave 3 Titan Masters from Timmy's and didn't have an issue at all. In fact, he did me a solid because I bought all 4 loose before he put them up as a set and refunded me the difference.

    I bought the Wave 3 Titans Return Voyagers from Timmy all the way back in early November and had no problem. Bought them on Tuesday and were delivered Saturday.

    I ordered a wave 3 Hot Rod from TF Source through Amazon and that order was canceled due to lack of stock. So TTB isn't the only one. This might be on Hasbro's end; not getting them to online retailers in the time frame they said they would.

    And they'll probably sell anyway. And then one of the reviews will be about how it's kind of small for the price. Sigh.

    It's not too difficult to tell that the people who write those kinds of reviews aren't the kind of people who are frequently on TF fan sites.

    Yeah. I want Sixshot probably more than any other release in recent memory, but I refuse to pay such scalper pricing.
    I'll gladly pay full retail, but not nearly twice that.

    Sheesh. Just checked the listing and five have been sold! What idiocy!
    This is why sellers put things up at dumb prices. They know some people will pay, so those very people are the ones causing the mark-up.
    Vicious, stupid circle.
