    As it just so happens I was recently paid, but I'm trying to find him on a site that I know to be legit. I do not want to deal with TFSource's eternal preorders where they're waiting for a reissue or for people to sell it back to them, and BBTS is out of stock. Am checking Toy Dojo and Toy Arena and TCP...any suggestions? TF-Direct talks about taking things out of boxes for customs clearance; I'm not a box collector but that sounds kinda sus.

    ETA: slightly crushing on your breakdancing soundwave avatar :D

    If you're ordering from China ShowZ is where items at. If you want an NA retailers I'd highly recommend Agabyss. They don't have the P.O. up for the RI of Yellow Leapord but they've carried all the other TA figures in the past. They tend to get their stock early and ship free on spendier items($150+ and up). Both my Double Evil and Quietus were shipped by them with free two day delivery via FedEx. They also have a points system just like ShowZ but don't require a membership to earn at the same triple points level as ShowZ. I'm a sucker for points though, Agabyss and Showz are my go tos because of that sweet, sweet SC.

    I'll check them out. I do prefer to get things in North America if the price differential isn't too bad, just because I'm not very fond of waiting 20-30 days to get items that are in stock when I ordered, and if you want faster shipping the price differential disappears.

    I'm into lolita fashion as well as collecting TFs so I'm familiar with ordering from China and Japan, but the only stores I know that stock both are CDJapan and Tokyo Otaku Mode--they don't have a great TF selection alas.

    They're both great. Not trying to nock any others, and I do have P.O.s w/ BBTS and ToyDojo because that's how the FT Reissue cookie crumbled on a few figures, but when I'm placing a P.O. on a figure that isn't going to be part of a feeding frenzy I always default to those two. Can't beat SZ on price, and Agabyss is just insanely fast with their shipping and has great C.S.

    I ended up ordering one for a friend through TF-Direct, and since it's been a wait, I asked if they know when it's being released and they told me their supplier said it should be shipping in July, hopefully it's a similar window for the other retailers as well.
