    Oops....can't. PayPal protection is 180 days and bank can't do a chargeback if it's passed 90 days. So I was told to contact my Attorney General, Better Business Bureau and Small Claims court if need be. Im NEVER buying any from loot crate again so definitely a lesson learned.

    I'm in the same boat. I called my bank and they say they can't do anything about it either because I authorized the sale. Will never buy from LC again.

    But did Neca even make any of these figures yet? I would think they would care if their whole shipment of figures just disappeared. Wouldn't Neca be upset if Target never released the Haulathon product after receving it? 

    Yeah, NECA made the figures and Loot Crate confirmed in January that everything for crate 2 & 3 were in stock and will be shipping out in early to mid February. Turned out that was a lie. From NECA's perspective, LC ordered the figures and NECA fulfilled. What they do with them after that is on LC.

  3. One more thing, Loot Crate is in a lose-lose situation, which is why I think they will never fulfill these orders. Even if they ship all crates tomorrow, what is the likelihood that their customers will return to them? They could put out gold-plated TMNT figures in the next series and I will still never buy from them again. I'm sure a lot of their customers feel the same, so they'll be out of business in no time. So the only other option is to cut their losses and screw their customers. At least that way they don't spend tens of thousands in shipping costs.

    The thing is regardless of what NECA CS people try to say there is a def connection between NECA and Loot Crate. So if Loot Crate just ripped people off by never delivering nor refunding people then that would likely have serious PR blowback on NECA themselves. Now it may be something where eventually they cancel all the loot crate orders and then NECA finds another way to offer the figures but unless this lawsuit took down both Loot Crate and NECA financially which I find it hard to believe it will, I don't see them just disappearing into the night with everyone's money never to be heard from again. It may take them awhile to sort it all out but I still have some level of confidence we aren't just gonna be screwed completely.

    Agreed. There is a connection between LC and NECA, whether or not they want to admit it. If LC goes under, I'm out $150, but I have multiple preorders for NECA that are worth much more. I don't expect NECA to go under anytime soon, but if the owner of LC can screw his customers in that way what's to say his other company won't do the same if they fall on hard times? So I've made a decision that it LC takes my money and runs I will no longer be preordering things from NECA either (because his other company could do the same at any time). So I'd take my chances at what NECA products I can buy directly from Target, WM, BBTS or EE. If I don't get something, I don't get it. It's better than having hundreds or thousands stolen from me.

  5. Thank you for the update. I've reached out (kindly) several times asking for an update with no response. After that, I found an email for one of their customer managers and emailed (again, kindly) asking for an update or refund. No response on those messages either. I even called their main number given by the BBB, but it goes straight to VM that says they won't be answering inquiries over the phone. Now that they haven't updated their social media in over a month, I'm betting it's a lost cause.

  6. I really hope these figures don't sell out in 5 minutes. According to their promos, they were supposed to go live 90 minutes ago. Meanwhile if you are an international customer, you have no trouble buying what you want right now. This is why I hate Target and Wal-Mart special events. And we have 4 weeks of this crap.

    NECA, please go back to the preorders. It's less stressful and much more enjoyable.

    Honestly this is one of the things I see a lot of folks talk about with S7 that doesn't disturb me.double joints only really works in armor to my eye.  And only is needed for guys with extreme agility.

    Agree. Super 7's figures are more pieces of art that pay homage to the source material. GI Joe Classified has less detail but more articulation.
