Q) I have a pre-order with you which shows as sold out on your website, but I have not yet had my item?

Q) Can you add my order to an account?
A) Unfortunately our system does not allow us to add existing orders to an account.

Q) Why cannot I not see my order in my account?
A) This will be because Paypal express was used when placing the order and you were not logged in or the order was placed as a guest. This will not affect your order.

Q) When will a certain pre-order go live?
A) We tend to put all of our product updates on our Facebook page. Please follow us for all updates such as this.

Q) How do pre-orders work?
A) All non-deposit pre-orders are payable in full at the time of placing the order.
Multiple pre-orders contained on one order will result in the order being dispatched once all the items are in stock.
Estimated release dates for pre-order items are shown in the product description.
To place a deposit a PayPal account is required.
The PayPal account used to pay the deposit must be the same account that the balance will be paid from.
We will invoice the balance payment around 7 days prior to stock arriving with us.
All deposits are fully refundable

Q) Why am I being charged postage on a deposit, when the total is over £100?
A) The cost of postage will be deducted from the final balance invoice. The deposit is made up of 10% plus the cost of postage.

Q) How do I cancel my order?
A) Simply email us with your order number and cancelation request.

Q) Why has my mixed pre-order not shipped?
A) As per our T's & C's orders will only ship once all items are in stock and ready to ship.

Q) Can I pay extra postage to split my order?
A) Unfortunately our system does not allow for this. The only way to ship items in stock is to cancel and refund any items that are not yet in stock.

Q) I would like to sell my collection.
A) Please send us some photos of what you are looking to sell/trade in, along with a rough idea of price and we will get back to you.

Q) My tracking number does not work.
A) Most tracking numbers will be live by 6.30pm if the order was made before 1.00pm Monday - Friday. Orders placed over the weekend will not be live until the next working day.

Q) My Parcel has not arrived.
A) The first thing to do is to check your tracking information, as items will often have been attempted to be delivered even if you have not received a card through your door. If it is with your local office give them a call. If you still need further help, then we will be able to assist in most cases. If you have a tracking number, deliveries via Royal mail can be tracked here and DPD deliveries can be tracked here.

Q) Do you ship to my country?
A) All available shipping rates can be found at our check out. If your country is not on this list, then unfortunately, at this time we do not ship to you.

Q) How do I change my address?
A) Simply send us an email with the order number you would like to update and your new address and we will get that done for you. Please note, changing your main account address will NOT update existing orders.

Q) Do you have an update for my order?
A) Pre-order release dates are often delayed. Sadly once this happens manufacturers rarely update retailers with new timescales. We will always update the listing and our Facebook page if we have received any new.
