They're very flexible with their policies, I've gotten them to cancel items even though it's against their policy and back in December I forgot to pay for an item because I thought I had added it to my combined December order but somehow missed it and they didn't close my account like they say they will. So the worst thing they can do is say no.

Back to the sword, can anyone think of another issue like this that lasted this long but was changed at release? I can't.

Mmmm... experiences vary then. I found Amiami to be extremely unhelpful. I don't buy from them anymore because of it. [-(

So if the release date has been pushed back, will that have a knock on effect on Shadow Panther? Given he is should still be on track for release at the end of August?

The delay was only 3 days, from the last day of July on a Tuesday to the first Friday of May, I wouldn't think that would affect too many things

Thanks for the advice everyone but I've been buying from Amiami for several years now and am fully aware of how they work and how orders are processed. When an item gets delayed they create a separate order for that item. From there you can either leave it alone to pay for and ship out by itself or manually combine it with the rest of the order in the new month that the item would then be in. So in this case, I should get an email regarding the change in date. From there I can do nothing and get charged for Dinobot when he comes in and he'll be shipped out by himself or I can go into my account and then combine my now two orders for August so that he'll be shipped out with the rest of August's order.

The problem I'm having is with needing to re-budget the money from one month to the next. July's order without Dinobot is a lot less than August's order without Dinobot. Having to move a $200 figure from one month to the next is just annoying and could cause slight problems. Nothing major, it's just a nuisance and I like each month's bill to not exceed a certain amount so that it doesn't become a monetary strain. Like some have said, Amiami isn't the most helpful with things though. They screwed me over with an order during the hurricane in Florida last year when I didn't have power for over a week and they gave zero ****.

As suggested, I could ask them to add it back to July since it will only be moved a few days into August but going by the fact that they couldn't care less about a natural disaster, I doubt they'd care about my budgetary complaints. That and the other figures I have preordered for July will most likely come out in the middle of the month. So it'll be more like asking them to wait for several weeks instead of the few days even if they would've had to wait that long had Dinobot not gotten pushed back anyway.

Amiami is a pain in the ass to use and their customer service sucks but they're usually the cheapest. Problems don't normally arise often so it's not that bad a trade off dealing with people who don't care about your problems if you can get your items cheaper.

Amiami isnt the cheapest since they always incorporate the domestic tax into the price. Which really sucks since tax should not be imposed on international sellers, but they do it anyway. I have switched to anime export a long time ago. 5% cheaper and you can stack for months on end.

Since AmiAmi is currently adding features (user order canceling is in the works) I'm hopeful that they'll add a personal warehouse feature soon as well.
