Hasbro Toy Shop.com They even post discount codes here in seibertron.com. Some times as much as 20% off or even free shipping

I never tried HTS yet. I'm not sure how to arrange the shipping, and the extra charges. And it seems you have to gain some sort of membership thing.

Don'y you ship your Amazon orders to a US address already? You can do that for your HTS orders. There's no membership I think.

Yeah. But i'm using the name and address of someone else. We usually buy from Amazon and eBay only. The account is all set up. Recently, we're avoiding eBay. Due to the repeated fraud attack.

All of my TFs are from Amazon. Except 2 from eBay, and a few from local toy shops.

Hasbro Toy Shop is pretty much safe and I find the prices on Amazon a bit om the expensive side.

You have to choose good timing when you buy at Amazon. Most of the time, they're expensive. But occasionally, the prices will drop to Hasbro retail or below Hasbro retail. Those are the only times i order.

In that case, you better checkout HTS is at Hasbro price already. In fact they have exclusives there now.

I really want to try it to just to get my hands on those Special Edition figures they right now esp Dragstrip, I don't think they'll be available in retail locally.
Do you also scan the Cybph boards?

Try it out before they run out of stock! I really doubt they will be. You're sure to see them in the hobby shops at a hefty price! I do check Cybph once in a while.
