    Anyone here ever preorder anything from TFL? If so, has it taken 3x as long(if not longer) as any other retailer to fulfill your order?

    I bought Ironhide from them. he showed up the Wednesday after everyone started submitting their "in hand" photos from HLJ or wherever. Matt's great and i haven't had any issues with any of my other previous orders either.

    Kinda getting antsy and all for Spotter. Seems like everyone and their mother has him in stock/in hand for a while now & TFL is out to lunch on it.

    transformerland is not a retailer, nor should it be taken as one. it's one guy who sells transformers. for the most part he has always delivered wonderful goods. I've been buying from him since the late 90's. has screwed up an order or two, but has always fixed it.

    but if you are expecting it there the day it comes out, i recommend bbts or tfsource. as they are actual retailers. and transformerland is a guy who sells toys.

    Yeah, I thought that went from "hot" to "cold" pretty quickly and without much of actual consequence having changed. :D 

    Also, because I'm a lawyer my mind immediately started thinking about how that libel complaint might read, which amused me further.

    I stopped ordering from tfsource because it seemed like they were always the last to get their orders filled. When BC reissued Sunsurge, I actually canceled my preorder with them and bought it straight from BBTS. I got it via normal ground within a few days, and had it in hand a week and a half before TFSource even had stock. I know a week or two isn't much compared to the months of waiting for a figure to be released, but I find it really hard to wait on a figure when I know it's out there and other people have it and my seller is watching cat videos or something.

    Any time I get the itch to splurge on plastic crack, TFL is my first stop. Matt's always been accomodating when I do larger orders and very reasonable with response times. I don't think I could do any better.

    I'm sure he has other responsibilities and what happens if he gets sick or needs to take a couple of days, or if weather takes away his access to the web. I don't let these things bother me because clearly I have benefitted more from his services. Where else am I going to find a reasonably priced treasure-trove of TF goodies?

    Cheers, Matt! Thanks for all you do for our little community!

    I don't understand how he would be able to offer competitive pricing.

    Same story for me, including he figure I made the switch on. Got tired of waiting for TFS to get things in. I didn't order Grassor from them, but I know people who did waited FOREVER to get him.

    No trophy but perhaps one of these lovely T-Shirts as a parting gift?
