    Not too soon, I would cry if all I preordered from Pulse came in tomorrow and just shut down for a few days

    I'm glad they won't be all hitting at once in September, that was going to be brutal.

    I wasn’t able to get a Pulse preorder for Galvatron and Amazon never had this for preorder, so I jumped and got a BBTS preorder. We’ll see if I’m lucky enough to be in the early group with the rest of y’all!

    Galvatron dropped into my PoL, but I’m not hitting ship till either Rodimus or the DNA kit for Skorponok drops.

    I'm starting to rethink my pre-orders with BBTS. I have 52 items ordered. Some of them are from last year, were meant as Christmas presents and still haven't come in even though the original release dates were in November and December.
    I can use them for birthday presents now, but time's running out on that as well.
    I have about seven still showing for May that were pushed back from earlier dates and haven't dropped, so the wait is starting to get irritating when other sites are already shipping items I'm waiting on.

    Honestly yeah, ironically they have a priority list and if you cancel your low on the list, but I cancel often because they never get things in and I find it elsewhere

    I should mention I have things on preorder for 3 years now at bbts

    That’s insanely long. I’m afraid they’re going to hold my preorder for Generation Toy Tyrant.

    Like most of you, my Galvatron has popped into my PoL. What’s odd is that the day before that, I got an email telling me that Bug Bite would be charging soon. Three days later, no Bug Bite, but Galvatron arrived and charged in that interim.

    of course, Hot Rod/Scourge are still MIA. I’m not nervous, really (I’ve only ever had BBTS fail to fill preorder once over the many years I’ve used them, and that was a Barbie gift for my wife) but it is a little annoying.

    I'm sorry you're still waiting. That really sucks.

    This is why I don't understand why people stick by them and proclaim how awesome they are. (Although, that's starting to wane. I'm seeing a lot more complaints popping up all over the place.) Yes, their customer service is excellent and I'll grant anyone that, but more often than not, you don't usually have to use it. For the handful of times things go awry, is it really worth jumping through all of their other hoops? No perks, no customer appreciation, just a shadowban. So, what? We're supposed to find something at retail, now, for less and just pass it up because one might have it on preorder with BBTS, lest they "cancel" y'all? (I see so many people who comment about actually doing that...)

    Found local? Check. Cheaper? Check. Yeah, they can piss off with the shadowban nonsense. Either sell me the item or don't. Don't shuffle the deck because I got a preorder in before someone else but I've canceled in the past. First come, first serve, period.

    You should never have to fear the retailer you're buying from. That's... I'm so sorry.

    Are there any alternatives? Is Tfsource good?

    I used to use BBTS for a number of TF figures but now I mostly use it for either DNA kits or Anime figures. I did order a Galvatron on the off chance I get one (doubt it but might as well try) but its hard to justify much usage when the DK-20 kit was delayed 4 months (while other e-tailers got it) and a couple Yukina Minato figures I preordered have been continuously delayed since Feb and are still delayed

    Honestly? Yeah. I used to hate on 'em with the credit card issues they used to have and their pricing can suck at times, but they've actually impressed me since I've been using their services.
    You do get free shipping once you hit a certain threshold, you do rack up points for each and every purchase, they pack extremely well, and a friend of mine told me their customer service helped him with a missing accessory on a figure he purchased with no problems.

    They've had issues in the past, and I'm sure they will again, but in general, they do a good job. I have no complaints about them as of right now. (And I've spent nearly a grand with them.)
    I think once they opened up the dual warehouses (east and west coasts) things started to smooth out.

    Yes and no. TFSource is good when it comes to getting in preorders at a decent time (as in preorders coming in mostly on time) but the prices have gotten kinda janky over the past few years. Even preorder prices can fluctuate like hell but I’ve had good experiences nonetheless

    Thanks! I’m wondering at what point should I start ordering from them. I don’t want to cancel everything on BBTS then buy from TFsource.
