But if you're OK with whatever BS you encounter with what you want or order online, that is fine, but don't think or expect everyone to be.
    I agree 100% with this. Also, I'd like to say (and I am sure it's been said a lot), this stuff is EXPENSIVE. $30 - $60 figures is a lot of money for what we receive. I feel like customer service is key whenever people are shelling out this kind of money for figures. If the personal cost wasn't so high, I think people would be a bit less frustrated over all.

    I know we aren't big corporations like Toys R Us, or Walmart, but I think that we should matter just as much, since Mattel goes on and on about how this is a 'fan driven' line, and how we are so important to the line. Well, we support, we subscribe, we wait, we put up with damages goods and delays, and still we get no answers when this stuff happens. Are we just supposed to shut up, pay and be thankful that the line even exists? Sorry, but there has to be an exchange.

    So there really is no "rhyme or reason" behind the shipping.
    This is a major problem with DR. It seems as if the orders just get tossed into a big pile and they just pick off the top when they ship them out.

    It's more like when the figures are made they are all numbered then were shipped out in lots. Higher numbered lots were left on location, and the others into areas near to the conventions. so the first person who ordered Wednesday got figure number 5,001 which was in Nebraska for corn husker con. Chances are they sell in some kind of numerical value going up so they can keep track of what has and hasn't been sold.

    So there is a rhyme and reason, whether it's a good one is another issue.

    For me I don't mind being a bit slower, I got TOD and Grayskull as a pair for the orb parts in part. I do like both characters so that was a bonus. It gives me something else to look forward to at a slightly later date to pick up and open.

    Get ready, kids. The charge from Mattel has dropped off my bank account now, so when she ships, I'll be charged then. I'd love to get a heads-up on when they plan to do this, since I don't like to leave money in my bank account. Knowing my luck, it'll be the week that I get hit for Granamyr, Procrustus, & Mosquitor. And none will ship together, so I'm stuck paying shipping three times, for stuff that will arrive literally within days of each other. I'd rather wait, have it all ship together, and save between $10 and $20.

    That would make sense but if that's the case it should've been the other way around: use the on-site stock first, then the Con stock after the on-site ran out.

    But that would make perfect logical sense...and when has Matty/ Digital River ever made sense or been logical?

    Logical? No, I think the word you're looking for is Logistical....that's the only Logi....word in DR/Matty/Mattel vocabulary. As in another Logistical failure....Logic would be to eliminate DR, hence why the word doesn't apply.

    I also left off the part in the explanation. They are going up in numerical number, so person A bought figure 5001, which was shipped off to a con. Person Z bought figure 14,999 which was still on location. Since figure 14,999 is in hand they can go ahead and ship it.

    Now that may or may not be exactly how they do it but from the sounds of it it's something along those lines. But mainly it sounds like it's some book keeping issue basically in how they assign figures to an individual. When stock is all on location it's not so much of an issue, but when it's around the nation it shines a glaring problem in the system.

    What really sucks is the CC I used for this order has since expired and when I contacted DR to update it, they said they were unable to update the order because it is being "processed" already. I have basically written my TOD off because I am fairly certain they won't be able to get payment and I won't have a chance to update the order.

    This is what really needs to never happen again. But we all know it will.. I put in my order the moment the sale went active. Can't help but feel a little cheated that people who ordered days later have already had their order. It's such bad public relations. But Matty has us over a barrel, what do they care?
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    I contacted Matty in order to have them take TOD Sorceress off of my existing order (and make her a separate order), so that the rest of the order can be shipped. Now I am being told that some of the items in my initial order might now be out of stock and have to be cancelled

    So, you might still get your TOD Sorceress, BUT everything else in your order might be out of stock!!!

    I guess by the time summer 2013 arrives, there will be plenty of grudges to hold against Mattel/Matty/Digital River due to THIS kind of fiasco...

    How does that happen? The order screen says orders are not complete in the cart until confirmed. Once they are confirmed...you should own the product....now delivery timeframe might still be an issue.

    I ordered Wed, just her, and I have no problem waiting while stock is given to orders witho other products first...that may just be me...but when the smoke clears...they better not "run out" of TOD figures for my 1 order.

    I have a feeling with all these cancelled TOD sorceress that are occuring, we may yet see her again someday on Matty Collector.

    If they are part of your original order, and you simply asked for your order to be separated....how in the hell are the figures you originally ordered out of stock, if you already had them in your original order?

    That **** makes absolutely no sense....just like the inability to cancel an order only seconds after it is placed, yet won't be shipped for days....I buy a lot online, and have never seen this level of ineptitude or stupidity from any other website, and I have an issue right now with TRU.com, and a damaged order, and no call back in 2 weeks....yet DR is still the single worst online entity around.

    But then again once something is ordered and it is correct through Matty....apparently it's best to leave it alone and keep calling and annoying them until you get it....I hope you get all your figures, I can't understand what goes on there in that warehouse and office space....they really need more training, or Mattel just needs to bite the bullet and offer better customer service, like their main site has, BBTS has, HTS.com has...etc.... Matty is the worst website I have ever seen, and I have seen plenty of beginner websites that look better and run better.

    My TOD sorceress just showed up in the mail. I ordered five minutes after she went on sale on Wednesday.

    No rhyme or reason on this one I guess.

    I really don't know what's going on there. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt, but now knowing that part of my existing order might be cancelled because of TOD Sorceress makes me . It's not my fault they have taken 2 weeks and still not shipped my items

    My guess would be the software doesnt allow them to split orders. they cant make you a separate order because some items from your existing order is showing up as 'out of stock' even though they are not, as they are allotted to you. Does that make sense? I'm confused now. The whole situation is mental

    I received an email from Matty where they came up with the idea that I could split the order. Toyguru also mentioned it over on the Matty Q&A forums. So, when I called them today I was told that some of the items in my order had limited quantities and might now be out of stock since it has been 2 weeks since I placed the order. So, now I am waiting for them to call me back to find out the details.
