MAKETOYS BATTLE TANKER REPLACEMENT HEAD: TFSOURCE & MAKETOYS BOTH FAIL TO HELP!

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about TF Knock Offs and 3rd party toys.

I've just now sent them an email to see if they still have any of these replacement heads.


Hrm....my order, from BBTS way back when, included the head. I had it pre-ordered from the first time it appeared on the site. I'm trying to remember where it was packed. For some reason I think it was on a piece of cardboard separate from the box.



Was it mentioned on your shipping list?


As I mentioned earlier, I had pre-ordered this add-on piece and waited a few weeks before shipping (yes, it was from BBTS). I just checked the shipping manifests, and the extra heads (I had two Battle Tankers) were not listed separately. They were in small plastic ziplock bags with instructions, not attached or inside the BT packaging. It's possible that these were shipped to people and simply overlooked and thrown away. All I can advocate is to contact WHOEVER it is you ordered from and let them know your situation. Start there before calling out MakeToy.

Robotmel, double check all your e-mail accounts to ensure that replies from TFSource are going where intended, and also check your spam folders. If you've done this already, do it again just to be sure.

Thanks Necro, checked n double checked but no missing emails or info from TFSource.
I am always very thorough when checking packaging even if I only ordered one item, you never know what you might find! ;)
I have just sent another email to TFSource referencing my previous email from alomost a week ago, hoping the customer service dept will come back to me as soon as possible? :-?

Interested to know if anyone else who ordered the Battle Tanker from TFSource received their replacement head from the initial early orders? :BOT:

Did not ordered the Battle tanker but I always make a note of opening ALL third party items once i get them. I've made the mistake of leaving my TFC Heavy labor sealed until i get the rest of the figures and it was missing a hip joint that made it fall over when it stands. I gave in and opened it two months after i ordered it and had to Email Robotkingdom for a replacement piece. They were awesome enough to send me a replace piece within a week.

anyway good luck! hope they get back to you soon.

Ok, so TFSource came back to me, oddly enough, shortly after my last post!

They basically said they couldnt do anything to help as their stock ran out back in May/June and suggested I contact Maketoys direct to see if they could send out a replacement?

I am sure there must be a big bag of Optimus heads kicking around somewhere, one with my name on it! :-x

Has anyone had any direct contact with Maketoys about anything regarding replacements parts? :-?

Well, I have had to contact Maketoys direct via their website (via Google Translate).
I copied in my messages to TFSource hoping that might have some sort of sway?

Has anyone heard of any sites selling these replacement heads on their own?
