Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / Re: EBGames UPDATE
« on: May 06, 2020, 07:54:21 PM »
My store closed for Covid right as the preorders were being delivered. No idea if mine ever got to the store or if they have saved it for me. I sure hope they have.
When stores re-open, will I be able to pick-up my pre-order?

Absolutely. We will hold your reservation until our stores re-open, and you will receive any applicable pre-order bonus items at that time.

Please note that the item you pre-ordered may not be available in store immediately when our stores re-open, as all new inventory is currently being stored at our Distribution Centre. After stores re-open, we will ship the item you pre-ordered to the store where you made the reservation, and one of our associates will contact you by telephone when your order is ready for pick-up.

If you would like to receive the item you pre-ordered now, please feel free to place a new order at EBGames.ca (where stock is available) and we will ship the item directly to your home with contactless delivery. When our stores re-open, you will have the opportunity to cancel your pre-order, move your pre-order deposit (if applicable) to another product purchase, or cancel your pre-order and receive a refund for your pre-order deposit (if applicable).

Scout Report / Black Series 40th ESB Anniversary Figures
« on: April 27, 2020, 01:54:47 PM »
I ordered 2 cases/sets of the 40th Anniversary wave 1 figures. They arrived today. I opened the cases up and I'm disappointed....why?..because of the return of 'Bubblegate'.
Both AT-AT Driver bubbles were separating from the cards....and one of my Leias is starting to separate on one corner. UGH!

OK....so it's been nearly 6 months since I haven't had any contact with Juggernaut toys....I'm very disappointed. Looks like I'm out $92.00 for a prepaid pending order. They should just take down their website.

I've heard good things about redshift7.ca.....does anyone know if your credit card is charged right away when you preorder from them?

I was so excited to find a single BS Yavin Luke on the pegs....it was the only one I wanted as it has the corrected spelling of Skywalker on the box...Yay!

Liability was more on the hotel than the organizer. They made sure there wasn't more than 250 people in the show at one time. But the reality was, there was probably no more than 80 people if that in the room. There were hardly any Star Wars collectors stopping by my tables that I ended up closing up shop and leaving after 3hrs. Believe me social distancing was not an issue.

UPDATE: I have spoken with the organizer personally, and as per their Facebook page, the toy show is still a GO!  There are approximately 50-60 tables as of yesterday. Due to current COVID-19 situation, it would be nice for those people visiting the show that you practice safe hygiene (wash/sanitize hands frenquently, don't shake hands, etc.),...and if you see an item you are interested in, that you consult the vendor prior to touching/handling an item from their table. Please respect the vendor's decision to limit handling of items.  My understanding is there will be some hand sanitizer on hand provided by the hotel. I will have some at my table and I may ask my regulars to sanitize their hands prior to handling items on my table.  This is to make sure your experience and my experience are as safe as possible.  Also, if you feel sick in anyway, please stay home.  Let's have a safe and fun toy show.

ToyConís March 15th show will feature some unique vendors, exhibitors, artists and cosplayers.  The Canadian ToyCon is a convention that focuses on action figures, comics, collectibles, toys, figurines, dolls, artwork and more from the 70ís, 80ís, 90ís and today.

Got a call from my local EB Games just now....my Black Series Jedi Knight Revan and Stormtrooper Commander are ready for pick-up. Yay!

The Black Series Stormtrooper Commander and packaging are awesome, instead of the 'red and black' box, it's a 'royal blue and black' box.  The Black Series Jedi Knight Revan is a great figure as well.  I never ordered the Heavy Battle Droid....didn't want the figure.

Question about ordering from EBGames online.  I want to pre-order something that is expensive enough to get free shipping.  However, at the checkout, it's charging me the full price instead of my membership price.

Do any of you have experience with this and do they just credit it back to you when they ship?

Unfortunately, when you order online it doesn't consider your membership discount even though you have logged in to your account. To get the discount, you need to order in-store, ...or....pay the full regular price online...and once you receive the item, you can try to get the price adjustment in-store by taking your online receipt to the store. It's really stupid their set-up.

yeah...I might have gotten the 'Supplier' thing wrong....it might have been the distributor. Which ever one it was, he's fighting to get his money back from them without having to pay a penalty for not receiving any product.

Hi Everyone.  So Juggernaught Toys is a 1 to 2 man operation...Jason being the main contact.  They closed the pop-up shop in Pickering last year...and now are only attending Toy and Collectible Shows in and around the Greater Toronto Area.  I have talked to Jason several times at the Burlington and Mississauga shows lately (except for this past one in Jan 26th...as he did not attend.)

Apparently, the main issue is with the supplier....I believe he is using Entertainment Earth.  The problem that he had started with Force Friday.  EE had guaranteed that they would have enough product to supply him by Force Friday if not shortly after.  I believe most of us who ordered from him received the Black Series 6-inch figures, but not the Vintage Collection Figures (Wave 1). 

So he had mentioned he had thousands of dollars tied up in pre-orders but EE never produced the stock to him.  So he is fighting right now to get his money back (your money back).  Here is the kicker with EE....Jason is trying to get his money back because EE never provided him with the stock he ordered.  So he wants to cancel his order but EE is asking for restocking fee (I think it's about 15%) for stock they don't even have and never provided to him.

I'm not sure if there is other issues with other orders such as Marvel, etc....but that's basically the story for the Star Wars figure side of things.

I have one outstanding order with him for 4 figures.

He did not scam any of us...we all pre-ordered and paid in advance knowing that there is a small amount of risk. I had pre-ordered over a $2500.00 worth of stuff from March to August prior to Force Friday and got everything that I ordered. It's just since September Force Friday that the supplier issue happened.

I know it doesn't make all of you feel any better...but he was getting and delivering great product and at great prices for us Canucks. Hopefully, Jason will post a follow-up post on Facebook or Twitter on these outstanding orders of ours.
