Welcome to our new website! We recently updated our online shop to a new platform and we hope you will enjoy the improvements we've made. The following are some of the changes you should keep in mind:
- Old accounts have NOT been transferred to the new platform so you will need to set up a new account to keep track of your orders.
- All pending Pre-orders/orders on hold will not be accessible through the new website. But rest assured they are still safely stored on our system. Pending Pre-orders will ship accordingly once they become available, and orders on hold will continue to be held until you let us know that you are ready to have them shipped. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for updates on those orders.
- myplasticpoints have been upgraded to a new Rewards program so if you have existing points from your previous account please contact us at email@example.com and we will transfer your points to the new system.
If you had an existing account with us on the old version of our website you will need to create a new account. Old accounts have not been transferred over to the new system. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. Please refer to the above for further information regarding these changes.

Some of the items we sell are made in very limited quantities. Therefore we’ll sometimes put a limit on the amount that one customer can purchase (usually one per customer). This will promote a fairer chance for collectors to obtain limited edition, hard-to-get items.
Blind Box refers to the type of sealed packaging that keeps the contents of the toy a mystery until you open it. Blind boxes typically come in a Series that are made up of a variety of different figures / designs that are usually depicted on the side of the box listed along with the odds of finding each one. Some are rarer than others and some are even super rare and hard to find. These are referred to as *secret* or *chase* figures.
Some items we have available for purchase are Pre-order items. This means you’re paying in-full for an item in advance, before its official release/ship date. The estimated release/ship date will be noted in the product description, and the item will not ship to you until that date. Please note that the shipping schedule is subject to change.
If you’re ordering both in-stock as well as Pre-order items, we ask that you place separate orders. If in-stock items are ordered together with Pre-order items, your entire order will be held until all of the items are ready to ship.
If you have a Pre-order item in the same order as in stock items we will typically hold the entire order until everything is ready to ship. If you would like to split the order please contact us and we will arrange it for you. Additional shipping fees will apply.
