Just thought it might be nice to have a thread dedicated to the different online retail options that are out there, so anyone who might be curious about a particular e-store can check out how their business is. I haven't ordered from a ton a different places, but here's some of my opinions:
Kebco I did some preordering through them starting last year, around May, during a major drought in figures in my area. I ordered some 2003 basic figures, as well as the Han/Boba/Yoda and the Chewie/Luke Unleashed waves through them. As of today, I have received each and every item that I ordered from them...although I will say that some took quite awhile. The Unleashed I all got reasonable quick, and well before I found them in stores...but the basic figures that I preordered in May of last year I didn't receive until November/December-ish. I am understanding that this was a shipment from Hasbro problem, and not their own though. Overall, I'll say that I have always gotten what I have ordered...but sometimes a little slow.
Brians ToysI haven't ordered from here in quite some time now, but I did when I first got into collecting Star Wars. I used them to pick up a bunch of loose POTF2 figs that I missed out on, as well as some loose vintage stuff. At the times I ordered, I always received things very quickly (within a few days usually), and for loose vintage and POTF2, I think the prices are not too bad. However, if you want anything new, be prepared to pay a TON for it, from what I can see. I will say, good service whenever I have dealt with them (even replaced a vintage loose figure that I didn't think was C-9), but I haven't used them in quite some time. Wouldn't recommend for newer stuff though.
Amazon I have used Amazon from time to time, with some TRU exclusive stuff and/or when they have figs in stock. I've always had pretty good luck with them, however I am an opener, so I'm not sure how good card condition is with them most of the time. I haven't ordered figures for awhile now because they charge $7.99 for the newer ones (but I think eventually come down). Overall though, I'm pretty happy with their service.
KB Toys Another one I haven't used for awhile, although I have had decent luck with them as well. Again, being a loose collector, card condition might be a concern for others. They do use big stickers here across the front if I remember correctly (but they come off). They don't usually have a lot of Star Wars stuff in stock (at least recently), but I have ordered a couple of SW things, as well as some LOTR stuff there. Delivery is quick, prices are so-so for what I have bought.
I haven't used Entertainment Earth, Newforce, Big Bad Toy Store, etc., but have heard good things about all of them from time to time. I am sure many others can give more details experiences of them though. Thanks for any opinions everyone!
