Boned by Amazon

Recommended Posts

Amazon.ca specifically.

I had preordered Dr.Doom along with Shang-Chi and they were both supposed to arrive today but neither one shipped. I got an Email today saying Shang-Chi would be delayed until who knows when and Dr. Doom was totally sold out of their distributors and they canceled my order.

So the entire reason for preordering in the first place now came to pass. I fear now the only way to get a Doom is to stumble upon one in the wild.

 

I am so annoyed. I just had to vent.🤬

Yeah amazon has been developing a bad reputation for cancelling pre-orders, i've heard stories about this over the past year or so.  I wouldn't preorder from them except for amazon exclusives.  

TBH i'm guessing that they get a huge number of preorders and probably when they get their first shipment from hasbro it isn't enough to cover them, which seems to happen with a lot of e-tailers as hasbro seems to be having trouble keeping up with demand. (and so they do bear a little bit of the blame here)  However, unlike other e-tailers which will simply deliver when they get their next shipment a couple of months later, amazon just cancels orders outright. At least thats my impression.

Had this happen with the Star Wars Black Boba Fett back in 2013.  Fortunately I found one in Target a couple days later.

Same thing happened to me on the U.S. site, but it was for the Prof. X in the Hoverchair.  I've only bought their exclusives from them since it happened.

Thanks I just sent my order.

I had to dip into the money I had set aside to ship my Bag of Loot from BBTS when/If my Vulture preorder comes in but that can wait till next month if it has to.

Vulture already shipped for me from Hasbro pulse.

Just one of many reasons I don't pre-order. I actually let you guys change my mind on that briefly . . . and got nothing but headaches. If it's not in stock I don't bother.

I never get headaches from pre-orders. I only pre-order from BBTS, Dorkside or Hasbro Pulse. Saves me in gas, worries about them coming back in stock. If I happen to find it earlier I can cancel my pre-order for free.

Yeah, yeah, assuming they don't ship early, late, get cancelled, or the retailer boosts the price after you order (not everyone offers a "pre-order price guarantee"). All those things have happened to me in the past.

And don't kid yourself, none of those stores you mentioned are any more immune to "Murphy's Law" than anybody else.

I've never had an order canceled. Ever. Even from amazon. Hasbro Pulses prices are generally my favorite. GameStop usually gets thing earlier than most others. BBTS has been getting things later (which is fine as they are my last choice for pre-order). Dorkside does a great job, regardless of them starting to increase their prices. I don't follow the trend of needing everything "First". I got my DR. Dooms before most people and with a 25% discount.

But again, I don't ever get headaches from pre-orders. Orders can be canceled and I've been in the game long enough to know its less time consuming and more cost effective to get them shipped to my door, for free.

As for being boned by Amazon, it happens. I have gotten so much free stuff out of Amazon thanks to their customer support team's "Courtesy Cash" program it's not even funny.

My brother, you have every right to rage. I went thru that with them way back in the X-Men jubilee BAF wave...by the time they cancelled it, all other outlets had sold out. You might have better luck with BigBad or Entertainment Earth.
