I ordered an item and was later informed that it is out of stock, or the item was removed from my order. What happened?
We strive to keep our inventory as up-to-date as possible, however, there may be certain circumstances that are beyond our control (in-store shoplifting, shrinkage, damage etc) that will allow you purchase an item that is actually not in stock.
It may also be the case that the item you ordered had low stock available and is already in the hands of another person that has not finished checking out online or in our brick and mortar store.
We hate it when this happens but don't worry! We don't charge your credit card until we have verified availability for your entire order. In these rare cases, a member or our team will evaluate your order and remove the items that are out of stock. Your credit / debit card is never charged for items that we are unable to fulfill.
Something I want to buy says "Unavailable" or "Sold Out". What can I do?
If an item appears on our website and says "Unavailable", it is generally out of stock.
Please feel free to check in with us to verify an item's availability.
Why must I agree to your return policy and terms or service before checking out?
Since some items in our store are considered non-returnable (animation art), we require all customers to read and agree to our return policy and general terms of service before proceeding to checkout.
If you have any questions about our return policy or TOS, please contact us.
I have been told that an item I ordered is a 'special order' item. What does that mean?
We carry certain items from various collections that are only available to us as special orders directly from our vendors. These types of items will appear on our site as 'in-stock' and can be ordered just like any other item. When we receive orders for these types of items we will immediately forward the order to the studio or manufacturer of the item and they will drop-ship your order to you directly.
This can sometimes add an additional day or two to the total shipping time.
