congrats Orson, nothing but good things to say about cp
Cool, I guess.
I can't order another item from CP until my Shooter Masters that I paid for almost a YEAR AGO actually ships, or I get my money back! Honestly, can't get my money back for items that's almost a year late? That's a swindle.
Are these "exclusive" items solely for losing customers? I mean, do they actually exist, or did I get sucked into Vaporware? Pre-paying for pre-orders like this makes CP a no go for me, there's a reason the prices appear so low, than something like this happens and you realize WHY!
Is there anyway to at least get store credit for this debacle?
I'll leave this here for you, cvmaas http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-3rd-party-discussion/752869-mastershooter-shooter-masters-captured-prey.html

Nobody asked you patrice!
Well alright! This is great news as Captured Prey is a phenominal shop that I highly recomend.
So you are placing all the blame on CP for a 3rd party item being delayed, gotcha. Unless you ordered a ton of them its a fairly cheap 3rd party item as well. Anyways theres always some negative nancy out there but in my experience CP and Sidecutter are great, they package your items as well as the big boys like BBS and TFS and ship fast. Congrats on the sponsorship.
I've ordered from CP a few times in the past, and Orson has always been awesome. I wish I had been smart and checked his site for Hegemon before I bought it on ebay - I wouldn't still be waiting! Won't be making that mistake again.
GREAT TO HEAR! I HAVE MADE PURCHASES IN THE PAST AND HAVE HAD ZERO PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER. THEIR PRICES ARE VERY COMPETITIVE AND THEIR SHIPPING IS ALWAYS EQUALLY RESONABLE. AS FAR AS THEIR MS TARGETMASTER STUFF, IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF CP IT IS THE FACTORY. DON'T KILL THE MESSENGER. I ALSO PURCHASED THEM LAST FEB AND AM LOOKING FOWARD TO FINALLY GETTING THEM IN HAND. AND WITH ALL OF THE DELAY I WOULD RATHER HAVE A TOP NOTCH TARGETMASTER THAN A CHEAP P.O.S. THAT FALLS APART AFTER THE FIRST TRANSFORMATION. WELCOME ABOARD CAPTUREDPREY AND I AM LOOKING FOWARD TO THROWING MY CASH AT YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE!
I am placing the blame of locking me into the "sale" for close to a year with nary a finished product to show for it. There have been "production shots" of these for a while now, they just kept being changed and the release pushed back, 3 or 4 times now, each a 3 month delay. I expect another update in March telling us how they still aren't done yet, because "bagging them takes so long" Seriously?
So that must mean it's going to take the small operation of CP forever to package them for shipment right? That's the current "delay" excuse, they are a small operation, so bagging them takes time. So there's another 3 months with CP sitting with my money, collecting interest on it, when I could have been collecting it and buying other REAL items with my money.
When they got pushed back from Q2 2012 to Q3, than Q4, pre-orders should have been allowed to be canceled. It was a pre-order, not a Kick-Starter funding, a 1 year delay a unacceptable, and since it's a CP exclusive, YES, they get all the heat for the delay. I didn't give my money to another company, they did, that's on them.
Slightly off-topic: any chance for more MP Soundwaves? I'd love to give my sale for this guy to CP.
....hahahahahaha. Anyone who knows Orson knows how hilarious this is.
Anywhos, trolls aside, I can't believe CP hasn't had this a long time ago. Orson is great, great customer service (to cvmaas - just curious, did you actually ever email CP/Orson/Sidecutter and ASK? Or did you just start bitching on the internet?), and is a great guy.
The only bad side of CP is when they don't have the toy I'm looking for, or it's sold out, and I have to buy it elsewhere
Apparently yes, since I did just by using the form on their website.
I agree with you that it's an unfortunate situation with the Shooters that left a bad taste in my mouth, however I found that I was able to communicate with them and get the situation partly rectified. It has definitely made me think about ordering from manufacturers who aren't as established. CP is still a good store though IMO.
This is awesome news. Orson runs a great store and 99.9% of my online Transfromer purchases go through him. CP has great service and the best part is he is fan first.
For the sake of clarity, since it seems to be needed - while Sidecutter does have personal ties to the people behind Mastershooter Collectibles (they are based in nearby cities and we all know each other in the area), he is not MSC. He does not hold any stake in MSC in terms of finances, ownership, design, production, or otherwise. MSC is an independent company.
And as I also know the people behind MSC, I can verify that the issue was not changes, it was the factory taking multiple revisions in order to properly follow the requirements that were detailed to them in the beginning.
Personally - I'm content to just let it live as-is. I know that I'll get my toys (which weren't even that expensive, granted I only bought the set to go with BotCon Spinister) as soon as they're made. Noone is scamming anyone. Release dates change. Shit happens. And yet again - if you contacted Sidecutter, he'd work it out with you.
I had great experiences with Captured Prey. Fast shipping, great communication.
