I guess I'm going to have to be the one to disagree with everyone else. I prefer EE over BBTS. Everything I have ever ordered from BBTS has been damaged (vehicle boxes with dents, bent cards, etc). Every time I order from EE, my stuff is Mint. EE has a Mint Condition Guarantee.

I have only used EE. I don't care if I have to wait to get my stuff, I just like to know its locked down. I've always felt that EE had a cleaner and more professional look to the website, but that's just me. And they do have a mint condition guarantee. That said, I've heard great things about BBTS and I should try them sometime.

EE does have a more professional looking site, but they don't let you modify your orders. I order from both, but I usually only do EE if they are way cheaper or if BBTS does not have it. Foolishly, it would seem, I went with EE for my Wave 5 vehicles because they were going to be cheaper for me, but here I am, vehicle-less and getting pissed. EE has a lesser selection of single figures, good for cases mostly. EE seems to get stuff slower (Cobra Island packs and Wave 5 vehicles). EE's customer service was nice when I inquired about the Wave 5. But, I prefer BBTS because you can do the Pile of Loot, which really does save a lot if you don't mind waiting, and they allow you to modify your order anytime yourself (pre-orders whenever you want, and when your item is in, I think you have 14 or 15 days to cancel the order if you want to and get store credit). You can pay for the mint condition upgrade with BBTS if you want, but I don't care about that really, so it doesn't bother me. But for me, especially with pre-ordered internet exclusive Joe vehicles, from now on I'm going with BBTS for the Pile of Loot and the ability to modify my order hassle free when I realize I really don't need some of the items I've ordered.

BBTS' customer service is epic, IMO.
They'll do everything but cook yer dinner to help you out.
i don't have the patience to Use POL, but i can't argue with the sound advice to use it.
You can pile up 6 months' worth of goodies and have Christmas (or D-Day, if you ordered all the Joes you could) any time you want.
On some of the newest items, their prices are a bit on the WTF? side, but give it a little time and the prices come down to pretty damn competitive.
since i don't get out much, i don't mind paying 1-3 bucks more for an item. so BBTS is all good.
Rest in Peace, Dad.

I only order from BBTS when they have a big sale. I've preferred EE, even though they don't have as many singles. Usually they're a little cheaper than BBTS. I've had no problems with either company. So go with whoever has the better deal at the time (including shipping).
