Motto: "Aw c'mon Hasbro! What can I say...I've been spoiled by 3rd party."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
I love TF Source, really I do, so that being said please dont take the following out of context....but this is "Source 3.0" you say? And you've still yet to provide a simple phone number for your business. It screams WTF? You are one of the most recognized companies in the TF community and there isn't a simple 1-800 number avilable to reach out and inquire about real-time current inventory etc. You guys have got to be pushing a million dollars in sales annually.

So why do I sound so bitchy about this you ask? Well part of it is because up until last year you guys had the best toy video review setup for current merchandise that I've EVER seen before or since on YOUTUBE (I mean you could tell somebody was really putting some time and effort into that endeavor), and those video reviews mysteriously dropped off shortly after Botcon last summer. And so it's left me wondering, "Did Hasbro have anything to do with that or did the creative team behind those videos just bite off more than they could chew?" Adding fuel to the paranoia fire over the copyright muscle flexing performed by Hasbro in recent months...did they have something to do with that because of your third party sales even as early as last year??? I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just asking?

I mean how hard is it to get a middle eastern phone answering service these days (sorry if that sounds cliche' or racsist), or better yet a digital answering machine system. I recently had a question that I couldn't ascertain an answer for regarding your inventory based solely on the info provided by your website and I went back and checked the business card I grabbed off of your sales table at Botcon 2010 and sure enough, there wasn't a phone number ANYWHERE on it and you guys had one of the most impressive set-ups there (I mean why even have a business card, seriously). I'm sorry for sounding so critical but I run an independently owned photography business that I'm sure doesn't even have to deal with HALF of the orders or sales volume of you guys, and even I have a business number for questions and quality control purposes etc... I'm just throwing this out there. :saint:

I'm sure I'll get some haters in response ;) LOL

Ugh the new site layout is terrible. Its way to busy and actually adds to the problem they had before, putting their stupid "deals" and gimmicks ahead of the actual product information.

I mean just look at the madblender page.

tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/3282/

What the hell! The product information pane is only like 2 and a half inches wide, yet the "tfsource points", "free shipping on orders over $150", "package deals", and the price gets like 5 inches!

I mean the layout has potential..but wtf. I don't want to feel like I am trying to read the nutritional information on a cereal box when shopping!

Did they improve their order stacking at all? Call me when it comes even close to BBTS POL option.
