    I placed an direct ordered to them on the atomic laser website for the 48 energy cube set for the supposed early July release. I emailed them late July as they did not update their site or Facebook page about a delay and still haven't gotten as response.

    It way too late to open a PayPal dispute if I wanted. But the question I wanna ask is has anyone else directly ordered from their website?

    I tried to.

    Sent them an email, they replied, so an order was placed a week or so later. Nothing happened on their end. I don't remember if the transaction just never went through or it was cancelled (this was over 6 months ago,) but I'm disappointed that I never got their cubes. Oh well, settled with the little boxes from The Container Store and called it a day.

    My money transaction went through and was completed. :(  I will shoot them another email asking for an update or just refund my money. It since the dispute window is closed they could just ignore me and go about their way. Win some lose some.

    If your paypal is linked to your credit card you can ask for a charge back from your credit card company.

    Worked for me before even though I was outside the dispute window.

    Yeah been finding out from multiple sources he is a bad person to deal with.

    I already talked to my bank and they are going to open a dispute against him. I believe by getting into contact with his bank. I have to have my bank call PayPal and PayPal will three way us all to his bank. If I understood correctly. It's happened before when I had a withdrawal I didn't authorize..

    But I have a strong case because he attached a tracking number to my purchase that was printed and never updated after that.

    Glad you got 'em but they could be made from real Energon and I'd still never give that guy another dime...

    I feel ya Dragonclaw. I want more but I am hesitant. He did throw in free tech specs as an apology. I found a plastic place that could make them but they only order in mass bulk.
