I have asked for full refund from kingplayer.de who are yet to reply to me. One other mfc user has received similar mail from tsume for madara xtra. Ask for refund asap if you receive this kind of mail.

I have also had an order cancelled by kingplayer recently and they have not replied to my emails or issued a refund:( Is anyone else still waiting for a refund for their order?
i've heard of ppl waiting longer than 1 month waiting for refunds.
Propably time to call a lawyer.... actually they seem to be on the Gamescom next week. Maybe i can get my money back there.

worst case kingplayer is not going to give anyone refunds because they're broke or something? at least it looks like from that mail.

good luck everyone! and Tsume is great! good team!

kingplayer issues full refund.
Btw could it be that Kingplayer just lost their rights to sell Tsume figures?
Figuya started to post a lot of them recently.
Maybe they switched distributor?

Kingplayer are at AnimagiC right now so you might have to wait a bit longer for an answer as it is a big convention and I don't think they will be fully back before Tuesday.
That's some real good customer service from Tsume, considering they really don't owe you anything, but are trying their hardest to make sure you can still get the item you ordered. :)
Sounds a litte fishy to me, to be honest. Especially the way it is written, with all those capital letters. Not sure it looks professional to me.
I never heard of Kingplayer being unable fo fulfill their preorders. Plus if, I'm pretty sure they'd tell you themselves immediately if so. Have you simply tried asking them? Sometimes they need a few days to get back to you, but they will. They have always replied to my mails, at least.

I wonder what went wrong with KingPlayer, but Tsume's customer service is pretty ace right there.
Woah sorry to hear that!
Thank god I didn't go with kingplayer and ordered my HQS directly via Tsume.

As bad as this situation is, I can assure you Tsume's customer service is excellent and they're super fast to process orders, so I doubt you'll have any problems dealing with them directly.

Hope you'll get your refund and your Kakashi soon!
