So I have a long standing pre order for the Mezco 89 Batman that had a $20 NRD on it. The pre orders sold out over a year ago, and have never opened back up. If I were to cancel my pre order, the company would get to keep my $20 NRD, AND turn around and collect another $20 NRD from the next guy that takes my pre order slot, because I promise you, within 24 hours probably less, someone else would take my pre order slot. So now the company just gets to pocket an extra NRD for the same figure...how does that "boggle" anyone's mind that some consumers might see that as a bit shady???... Again, I've never insinuated I should get my money back, but what's so wrong with giving store credit? You maybe cool with just giving company's free money, but I'm not.
Anyway you look at it, NRDs are a scam. Especially since most preorders that require NRDs are more expensive, limited products that 97% of the time sellout at some point. These action figure etailers are mostly a joke. They are essentially scalpers with a fancy website.
