Honestly, I don't care if EE or Megalopolis is at fault. I heard it straight from the mouth of Ben at Megalopolis: They chose to jerk their customers around for over 3 months with no updates on the problems/shipping status/refunds/etc. Regardless who was to blame for the supply issues, Megalopolis chose to advertise products as "in stock" even if they weren't. They chose to ignore every customer inquiry. They chose to continue taking orders months after customers like myself ordered products we never received instead of suspending new orders like a responsible business.supreme-d wrote: ↑Mon Jun 21, 2021 11:09 pmOh wow gotcha. Well regardless of the decision, I would advise people not to base their understanding of the truth solely on the court decision. There’s can be a lot of difference between who is “at fault” legally and who is at fault by any common understanding of the term, especially when there are inequalities between each party’s resources for legal representation.Misfit wrote: ↑Mon Jun 21, 2021 9:49 pmIt wasn't just shipping delays. They were selling in-stock items, and then not sending them for weeks, if at all. Some people were able to get their money back, or their items, eventually. Some had to resort to going through back channels, like stopping payment through their bank, in order to resolve the issues. There are several detailed complaints in the Madballs thread on the General toy board. Megalopolis has said it was all Entertainment Earth's fault and they were making them pay upfront for product, forcing them to charge customers upfront, before sending inventory which EE would withhold anyway. They laid this out in a countersuit to EE suing them for unpaid invoices, which is why EE stopped sending Mega inventory. Some still take the side of Megalopolis while other are taking a wait and see, though litigation like that often takes years to sort out.supreme-d wrote: ↑Mon Jun 21, 2021 7:50 pmDisclaimer: I have no connection to the Megapolis organization or anyone involved in making money from these figures or the Madballs/Battletoads brands in general.
Question: When did the issues with delivery start? Because a lot of brands have been delaying products in the last year and a half, and I’m a little confused why some projects/companies get a pass while others don’t.
Not saying anyone is wrong about Megaopolis, just trying to understand the issue more fully.
Yeah, I really like and want these figures, but I won't support these crooks.
