A funny thing happened to my Diamond Select order...
So I ordered the Scotty/Keeper 2-pack of "retro cloth" Mego-style figures from Diamond Select. Within about four days I heard the doorbell ring, and lo! the postwoman had left a box from DS Toys on my porch. The box looked a little large, but I thought, "Hmm. Mostly packaging material, probably. Good work, Diamond Select." Then I picked up the box, and it was a bit too heavy for 2 figures.
My first thought was, even before I opened it: Shipping error in my favor!!! Then I thought, what if this is something I don't want at all? Calls, customer service, returns... headache. I took the box to the kitchen, got out a paring knife, and sliced the box open.
I got a solid case of Scotty/Keeper figures. That means instead of 2 figures, I got 8: 4 Scotty, 4 Keeper. GREAT HORNY TOADS!
This has happened to me before, kind of. When I ordered a Concept General Greivous figure from StarWarsShop last year, I ended up getting, like, a box of 10 of 'em, IIRC. That was a good day; I felt a little better after paying SWShop's inflated price for that Greivous figure. Yes, I kept all the Greivous figures, though I gave all but 2 away. I still feel a little guilty, a little.
So YAY, lovin' online ordering!!! But since DS seems like a good company, not out to fleece me too much on my newfound Star Trek habit, I emailed them and let them know about the overshipped product. I got a short reply to the effect of "we'll send you a return label so they can be sent back." So I'm waiting on the return label now, part of me wishing that I had kept my mouth shut. The other part wonders what the hell I'd do with 3 extra Scotty and Keeper figures.
And the Keeper freaks me out a little, albeit in a good way.:twisted:
