- For customers who choose the second batch pre-order, the dispatch time will be 2-3 months later than the first batch release.
- To illustrate, say if a product is to be released on 06/07/2019. The first batch pre-order will be shipped one business day after the release, where the second batch preorder will be shipped one month or later.
Why cost First Batch Pre-Order cost more after the release?
Our business code ensures that the cost of your collectable will be fixed after you placed the order.
Due to the market fluctuations. When the product is officially launched. Some products may cost 2-3 times more than its original price. But our business code free you from any additional charges since the cost of your collectable will follow the price you see on the day you placed the order. The market fluctuations of prices will not affect collectors. Therefore, it is possible to have different prices before and after the release of the collectable
Why hasn’t my second batch pre-order arrived when there is in-stock and first-batch pre-order available?
A second batch pre-order usually takes longer time to arrive which is explained on our pre-order page, a second-batch pre-order is usually 2-3 month behind the release of first-batch pre-order , therefore it also enjoys a lower price in normal circumstances. First batch pre-order are usually more competitive and have a shortage. If you wish to change the order to in-stock for earlier arrival, please contact our customer service at [email protected] .
Why is there no notice for my second-batch pre-order while there is in-stock status available?
Second-batch pre-order are marked as wholesale distribution pricing, making it cheaper than in-stock price (Also Known As First Batch Price) The in-stock statues are distributed among Hong Kong Hot Toys distributors, with limited stocks, thus making the price higher. In general, second-batch pre-order has a lower price but slower delivery.
When you place a preorder with Toys Wonderland, we will reserve that figure for you from our incoming shipment. Pre-ordering also provides a better price than an in stock price. Pre-ordering provides the fastest retailing service. In some cases our shipments pre-sell-out so only people who preorder with us are able to receive the items because we don’t have any extras left to list for normal ‘in stock’ sales. For those who are listed as in-stock after the pre-order, the price would be higher than that of the pre-order price.
