|Can I change to another product after placing an order?
Please contact our Customer Service Team at [email protected]. You may change the product as far as circumstances allow.
|Why is the pre-order released/ available at other stores while Comic Sanctorum does not?
We value our vendor relationships and respect their listing restrictions. There can be specific restrictions from the vendor that are case-specific. Some online retailers may not have a direct relationship with the vendor or may simply choose to ignore the vendor restrictions. We will notify our customers when the pre-order is completely ready to ship.
|What is the difference between Hot Toys First Batch Pre Order & Second Batch Pre Order?
Hot Toys is a Hong Kong-based company. They release their latest product in Hong Kong 2-3 months earlier than other countries. The customer who pre-order the first batch from our store, we are guaranteed to ship it within one business day after the official release.
For customers who choose the second batch pre-order, the dispatch time will be 2-3 months later than the first batch release.
To illustrate, if a product is to be released on 06/07/2019. The first batch pre-order will be shipped one business day after the release, whereas the second batch pre-order will be shipped one month or later.
|Why is First Batch Pre-Order costing more after the release?
Our business code ensures that the cost of your collectible will be fixed after you place the order. Due to the market fluctuations, when the product is officially launched, some products may cost 2-3 times more than their original price. But our business code frees you from any additional charges since the cost of your collectible will follow the price you see on the day you placed the order. The market fluctuations of prices will not affect collectors. Therefore, it is possible to have different prices before and after the release of the collectible.
|Why hasn’t my second batch pre-order been shipped when there is an in-stock and first-batch pre-order available?
A second-batch pre-order usually takes longer to arrive which is explained on our pre-order page, a second-batch pre-order is usually 2-3 months after the release of the first-batch pre-order, therefore customers can enjoy a lower price in normal circumstances. First batch pre-orders are usually more competitive and have a shortage. If you wish to change the order to in-stock for an earlier arrival, please contact our customer service at [email protected]. You may change the order to in-stock as far as circumstances allow.
|Why do I have to pre-order with Comic Sanctorum?
When you place a pre-order with Comic Sanctorum, we will reserve that item for you from our incoming shipment. Pre-ordering also provides a better price than an in-stock price under certain circumstances. Pre-ordering provides the fastest retailing service. In some cases, we are pre-sold out so only those who pre-ordered with us will receive these items as we do not have any additional items available for normal ‘in stock’ sales. If there is stock after pre-order, the price will be higher than the pre-order price under certain circumstances.
