Absolutely mountains of stock coming in Friday, as always we will work through orders as fast as we can, but it will take until middle of next week to get it all sorted. Please be patient. And remember orders are only shipped out when the order is complete.
These items are arriving:- Star Wars:- AT-ST Raider (Pre-Sold Out) Black Series Fox Restocks Black Series C3PO and Babu Frik Black Series Sith Trooper Final Allocation (pre-sold out) VC Luke Yavin
They've used that method many times in the past. I thought when Wreck-Gar became so easily available that they'd found a different source, but both ID and Kapow have said Ratchet will be a difficult one to obtain. I'm still hoping for a Takara release given the amount of remoulding, but he hasn't come up on their release lists yet. We'll just have to hope for better availability in Walgreens closer to Christmas and that Toph can bag an armload.
Transformers Micro Masters Ratbat/Rumble & Direct Hit / Power Punch set and Micro Masters Rung, Singe and Pteraxadon Set now up for pre-order. Due to the time differences in arrival, these 2 cannot be purchased in the same order.
Tempting, but right now, given the Ratchet fiasco, I don't trust them to deliver in the slightest. And they can't be ordered together, eh? Since I only *really* want Ratbat and Rung, that means each figure'll be £30 each (and yeah, okay, I want Rumble too - but you take my point, I hope). I'm going to have to say "no" to this method of obtaining them...
I don't want all the Battlemasters, I don't want Ratbat and Rumble. I'm feeling pretty shafted with these options.
Fine ID, your rep is a little shady now and you give me another reason to not give you money, cool, cool.
I mean, I can understand some of this, to an extent - they clearly don't think they can shift the rest of the figures in the wave, so want to sell them all as one unit. Which makes some sense. It's no different to when some suppliers charged more for one of the Titans Return figures (I think it was) because it was the only new toy in a wave full of other figures that had been on clearance in physical stores for months. I can understand them not wanting to lose money. But it doesn't mean I like it. And given ID right now, I don't want to trust them. But if I want Rung, what choice do I have..?
I would think they will have a good go at trying to fill all the orders they took. They'll have scouts in the US raiding Walmarts until they get enough, even if they lose their profit on them. ID have dropped the ball here, but they're a pretty good shop with a good customer service record. Sounds like they had the rug pulled from under them by Hasbro to be fair.
