I am a fan of Dorkside, and I hope everything goes well for them. I am not canceling any orders. The owner has been a valuable part of our community here over the years. He’d privately message me from time to time.
I just want to echo this sentiment. I wish Dorkside and his crew all the best. I had nothing but positive dealings with them and I always appreciated the time Dorkside took to come on the board and interact with us.

I do know this: The cream always rises to the top. I have no doubt he will be back on his feet again someday soon.

:lol:

Y’all crazy as f.

I ordered The Marvel Select Vision recently so I’ll give them a few days before I get antsy.

Hopefully DS can restructure and come back perhaps smaller but more structured in the new year.

I obviously don't know the whole story behind what is happening with Dorkside. I just thought at the time it was strange to open a physical store during the pandemic.
I would've myself used that money to build more of my online store so I could compete better with BBTS and EE. The pile of loot that was mentioned, offer free shipping again for in stock items over $39 and if needed get another warehouse. However I would have not started the single BAF purchase, when you do that you are stuck with a lot of extra figures to sale.

I saw that Dorkside currently has the Marvel Select Vision at 50% off for $14.99 in their sale section, FYI.

I love Dorkside, I hope that they can come back strong. Hopefully they can continue to sell in stock inventory and pay down debt and get back in the game. I've spent around $2,500 with them this year and would do so again if they can get this turned around.

While I have not had to deal with dorkside in recent months or during this unfortunate time they are apparently going through, I certainly have done a lot of business with them over the years. All communication, any time I've had to reach out and have something taken care of, was always handled promptly and efficiently on their end. I never had an issue. I'm sorry to see something like this happen to any small business and I wish all the best.

Amber being a lying sack of shit doesn't set true victims back in the slightest. If anything it helped people to realize the stupidity in sentiments like "believe all women" and that what should actually be looked at is evidence and proof.

This is the last thing I'm going to say on this, but yes, it absolutely does. It opens up ordinary women to defamation lawsuits.

But your "believe all women" statement is evidence enough that I'm wasting my time.
The last thing I'm going to say on this is that your username tracks.

Bobby Vala of Action Force put out a YouTube video today saying that Dorkside are pretty much closing their doors. The product disappeared from the site because he bought it back, including the exclusive, and he’s going to sell it himself.
