    well, my local eb said that the figs shipped on the 25th , which was Tues(when I asked them if they heard anything) The said call Wed, and see if they come in, which I did and got a very cold response about them not going through boxes till Friday, today a co-worker went to see if his were in, being Friday and all....and they got angry with him and said they will send someone over to tell us....I Finally have had it w/ EB. I paid 50 bucks in full for the set and to get treated like this....I hope others here agree with this, I plan on calling thier DM and HQ to issue a offical complaint. They really need to get their things in order (computuer issues on dates, and coustomer relations)


    Just needed to vent sorry all

    It's not the individual stores fault. A lot of factors affect the product arrivals. The port lockout was a big factor, the backlog caused by that. The time it takes to ship from warehouse to store. It's impossible for the stores to get exact dates for arrival, it's a thing that as a collector you have to deal with. And besides these figures are soooo good it's worth the wait.

    What do you do when ebgames ships you a broken toy? Should I take this up with ebgames or check with Palisades first?

    Thanks!

    Always attempt to return it to the place of purchase first. Palisades will help from time to time, but they prefer that you return it to your retailer first. The retailers are more likely able to get a replacement for you more quickly and it keeps Palisades from being flooded with too many return questions/requests so they can focus on the people who really need help.

    Well today I got a call that the figures came into EB. I was so excited. I asked if the would put aside the Blue Floyd for me. The answer came back no. "We dont have one" "you dont have one?"
    "No, all we got was one of each figure. Since your always so excited abotu them we put you on the top of the list" I felt so special and elated. How great is it that everyone else in my area has to wait. Not really cool at all but heh it doesn't really matter to me anymoe. I love my EB. I think it all depends on the manager.

    I have mixed feelings here! A week or so ago, I went to EB, and they did not have the Muppet figures.. I was ticked! However, they had a two for one sale on old figures. I managed to grab both Cletus and Dr. Hibbert for the low price of 5 bucks for both.

    EB is a mixed bag. TRU, now there's the problem store!
  8. Heck, my EB Games dosn't even carry Muppets. They only carry Simpsons.

    thats odd, my local eb games is really great about helping me find my muppets. most of the guys will go in the back and find me things that theyve been hiding back there. they always tell me to call in and keep myself updated with whats new if i cant stop by, and every other eb i go to the employees are equally as nice.

    I heard EB will stop carrying action figures now.

    The EB at my local mall certainly has (stopped carrying figs). Last I checked it had three Final Fantasy X-2 figs and that was it. The only places local that I've seen the muppet toys these days has been Suncoast and Sam Goody (who overprice their media, but sell their toys cheap). ...Even the local Toys 'R' Us seems to have dwindled in their toy supply and had only one Muppet figure. ...Maybe the populous of northern Chicago suburbs just aren't toy buyers.

    That happened to me when I ordered from EB's website. All I had to do was send the figure back with the reciept annd they promptly sent me a new one. And I haven't really had any problem with EB so far.

    EBGames online!!!

    I've ordered the last two series (6 & 7) from EBGames online. Great prices ($8.99 each) and only $1.99 for the cheap shipping. It may take a LITTLE longer, but they told me that the ship date would be April 2nd, and I actually got them on the 1st. :)

    If you're having a hard time finding them in the stores, I'd just go here. Especially for pre-orders!

    And, no, I don't get the McFarlane Sports Heroes either. :confused:

    I live in Canada. Most of the EB stores here have stopped carrying action figures all together. :boo:

    I gotta second that! I will no longer be looking for any new Muppet Figs at EB, TRU, or even Target. Suncoast has all the new stuff, plus all the other fun stuff Mr. Penguin was talking about. Yay for Mr. Penguin and Suncoast!

    P.S. On a side note, Buffy season 6 comes out this month!

    I'm pretty sure EB Games is dropping the Muppet line altogether...

    Maybe it's just the EB Games near me, but it seems like they're dropping all action figure lines. Each time I go into my friendly local EB Games, the shelf space dedicated to figures is that much smaller. It might just be my area demographic, though.
