I think it comes down to size. I think DST operated much better years ago when were smaller. I literally NEVER had a problem with them for years. Yeah they weren’t always the fastest but they were reliable. The last couple years have seen them selling a lot more more but becoming much more unreliable. I know they switched platforms when they upgraded but regardless they have some stuff to iron out before they return to being my go to. Honestly the last couple years it’s been GameStopI have a 40th Anniversary Hoth Rebel Trooper that I ordered in April 2020 and they charged me for sometime last fall that's just sitting unshipped somewhere.
The people at Dorkside always seem nice and I want to keep using them as my go-to. But it's frustrating to see people on Twitter and Instagram reply to Yakface "oh thanks for the heads up, I ordered Wrecker late last week and it already arrived!" when so many day-one preorders remain unfulfilled.
And given how things have gone with things like the Kamino clones, if pre-orders aren't fulfilled in the first batch that comes in, the order might just get canceled six to twelve months down the line. *sigh*
