Nope. By law they don't have to sell you anything.

It's called "invitation to treat" They'll make an offer, you accept, they accept and they sell to you.

They can cancel it as is their right.

But you are still covered under the "bait and switch" law, but that doesn't seem to apply here.

The only time they have to sell to you, as in you can fight for it, is if they charge your credit card as that is an indication of your offer acceptance that they have accepted, otherwise they must give you an immediate full reverse charge refund.

You are right, it doesn't. We should still get a reply from them of some sort. I am not expecting anything at all, I just want to know what they do.

If only one or two had ordered, they may have honoured it. But not 20!

No way.

I ordered a Cybertron Legends Sunstorm (about $6) from them along with some other figures. They sent me a Soundwave instead. They wouldn't replace it or refund me unless I sent the Soundwave back and repaid for shipping of the Sunstorm.

Wow, that really is bad service. Their mistake and you pay for it. Thanks for sharing your experience, there's no way I'm ever going to do business with them.

Why? They're not honor bound to put themselves in the red.

Doesn't matter, one order or 20 million, they won't just send a free blaster out of the goodness of their hearts just because "only a couple" of people ordered one.

They are a business after all and to even send one free without realising is bad business practice that is guaranteed to be the road to the "closing down" sign.

Now I just hope everyone here is a little more worldly and won't be so quick to waste their time in the future. :)

As I said, "may". As in they would have been more likely.

I wouldn't _expect_ them to, but generally companies are more willing to honour these sort of things if it's a one off or close to it. A whole bunch of orders at once tends to be too costly.

guys..bibyco has been known for its bad service.
i ordered a red scourge voyager/ultra once, they called me telling me the packaging has been damaged during retrieval and it was the last.

they said they will attempt to get another but never got back to me for 1 mth. i was pissed off and unable to get in contact, i justed made an order on a Voyager Wing Saber which i already had and told them to refund me. They ended up sending me the Wing Saber instead which sucks!!!

moreover to add-on, they have yet to have any of their TFs on sale before and they are all priced at its highest retail price ever. if there's something that you badly wants and is not available anywhere else except there, i guess its worth getting but do consider the risk of facing bad services e.g. late replies to emails once order mail, does not answer phone contacts nor adhere/admit to mistakes made by them

Last year I ordered a Legends Leobreaker and got LeoPrime instead. It was a present for a young kid, so I didn't have time to get it exchanged. They said I could get a discount on my next order, if that was to ever happen...
