Dear Sideshow,

First we had the RAH NGE Shinji Ikari Sideshow orders canceled by Medicom, leaving collectors scrambling to find other places to order. Fortunately, he was readily available at many retailers which makes one wonder why Medicom couldn't fulfill Sideshow's orders.

Now Medicom has canceled Sideshow's orders of the Son Goku (Young version) VCD! He is already out in Japan, so collectors again have to scramble to find another retailer and hope he isn't sold out yet, but again, he seems to be readily available.

What's next? The Gohan VCD? The RAH Auska Langley or Rei Ayanami?

I hope Sideshow is working with Medicom to sort out this issue, because canceling our orders at the last moment and leaving us to figure out where to get the item at the last minute may mean we might miss an item due to it selling out or having to pay high secondary market prices.

To be completely honest, I am beginning to lose my faith and trust that once I had my order placed with Sideshow I was good to go. Now, I am beginning to wonder about every item that is by Medicom and is (so far) an anime item. Tell me up front... should I look elsewhere to order these items in the first place?

Sincerely,
Disappointed anime collectors everywhere.

Mine is shipping from HLJ right now! :banana

That's the whole point of the thread... why are Sideshow's orders being supposedly canceled by Medicom when other retailers still have them???

did they get enough orders for it? this happens with diamond and other distributers for that reason.

Probably not, but why not just tell us that instead of saying Medicom canceled their order. They offered other Medicom pieces where there was only 30, 40 or 50 available, so surely they could still deliver these items, even if they didn't get that many orders.

I'm shocked Lonnie couldnt just call them and get a direct answer.

I mean, doesn't he have a red phone with direct line to Sideshow?

Contrary to popular believe, no... no I don't. And I'm not afraid to call them on an issue such as this either! You guys can joke about it all you want, but what if they canceled your orders for items you were really looking forward to?

That's bad, they should really do something about it.
If this happened to me, I would be seriously pissed off.

I totally see where you are coming from. It is a valid concern. I will still joke about it though.

He somehow managed to cancel an ebay auction of mine. I don't know how he did it. His cancellation powers are vast and mysterious.

I'd be pretty pissed. Sideshow is acting as a distributor for Medicom, and if Medicom is cancelling on product being produced, then Sideshow needs to drop them. It reflects badly on Sideshow whether it's their fault or not, so they don't need that hassle.

MC has spoken! I give **** stars on his post


***1/2 on the packaging

**** on grammar

**** on spelling

Overall I'm happy with his statement. ****1/4

I don't see the point in calling... they stated Medicom canceled the orders, so that is that. I just want them to work on correcting whatever the issues are so that it doesn't happen again. I've already secured both items from other places, and if this is going to be a regular occurrence with Medicom anime products, I'll just take my business for those products elsewhere.

You probably should. I wouldn't chance it.

Just got off the phone with CS at Sideshow and he said they were canceled through Medicom but he didnt have a reason. He said most of the time it is because not ebough orders are placed. Also, no way to tell if this will happen with future orders or not. Its all done on Medicoms side.

No one at SDCC had an answer for why Shinji was canceled either... if it is for low orders (as I suspected) then just tell us that; we'll order from someplace else and move on.
