Dont need to add much more to the below. Been 2 years since I've ordered, raised a question on Facebook and they blocked me.
Might give consumer affairs a go
Fake.scammers many more words
Brought something in 2015/16 preorder hulk hogan I had paid it off was told Feb would be sent out anyway Feb come and went 2 years later still tryna sort it out. No response communication nothing got 1 reply saying employing people to respond to emails. Anyway last year 2017 towards the end of the year got customer affairs involved abit of a wait and process but got my money back. Dirty scammers full of lies i tell you do not trust them! Years of pain getting your money back not worth it ! Stuff em
Don’t not buy from these scammers
I pre-ordered a hot toys figurea few weeks ago, after having paid the full amount, I received an email, telling me they would not be getting the stock in and that my payment was voided. I tried to reply to the email asking about my refund, but their email is not reachable and no way to contact them. Their website currently still says the hot toys figure is available for pre order.
They are thieves & scam artists
I preordered Hot Toys Black Panther cost AUD279 back in October 2016 with an ETA March 2017 then it was changed to June 2017 then Dec 2017. I emailed numerous times & received 1 reply to say they were receiving limited stock soon & I wouldn't be on the list. I emailed to cancel my order & asked for a credit card refund...no reply again & again...I contacted Mastercard but as the time elapsed had past 12months they said it was unlikely there was anything they could do...I believe the time elapsed was a ploy by Premium collectibles as they knew a...ll along how hard it would be to claim a refund. My son also has lost approximately AUD2000 on 3 Transformer orders made in 2017. I hope Premium Collectibles are prosecuted by Fair Trading & not allowed to reopen under another name to rip off more honest collectors.
Do not trust DWYER's Premium Collectibles
The company known as Premium Collectibles has received numerous slander in the 1000s for not just being the worst service in terms of customer satisfaction, but knowingly scammed many for free money. I lost over $1000 and could not get all my money back. I managed to get $423 back, but the Coles Mastercard is not a reliable credit card company to use (so I found). So to others please ensure you have a reliable credit card company with chargeback facilities (unlike Coles) so that you can get a refund from any scams such as Premium Collectibles....I hear the company has closed but may reopen under a new name for the con artist to do so again. Careful with online trading. The old story as it says: "If it sounds to good to be true, then it ain't true."
No more Credit Card Protection from 04/06/2018 - be careful
I received over $4,000 back in pre-orders that had passed their ETA (no communication from the owner) by using the VISA Chargeback process. All cases were found in my favour, using the "goods not supplied" code on the VISA dispute form. Premium Collectibles is no longer accepting Credit Card payments, only Crypto and direct deposit, meaning you lose the right to contest goods not delivered through your merchant. A HUGE risk, as this was the only way I could secure a refund for items not delivered. As the owner does not respond to emails sent, its virtually impossible to secure a refund direct with the site. I would hate to think how hard it is without credit card protection. Buyer beware!
DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. Took over $400 form me on pre orders and nothing has arrived. I emailed them many times with no response. Do not deal with them unless you want to loose your money.
Destroying people's hobbies through silence and false promises
Started using them mid 2015. Bought several transformers on pre-order. Was going great, you had to wait but they delivered. Things started unraveling end of 2016. ETAs started being changed from month to month. Emails were replied to but with etas that kept changing. Products came into stock with other retailers but PC still had none. Ended up with massive disappointment and lots of time and effort chasing them up on email with no success. Ended up doing charge backs on all outstanding orders. Fortunately for me, my bank ruled in my favour for ...all and got funds back. Not worth the effort for saving $$$ on toys! I'm sticking to buying from Amazon.jp and other Japanese/Asian retailers that have delivered thus far (and actually reply to emails with actual dates and information!) Have since purchased all the stock I was waiting from PC from other retailers. Had to pay more, but it's a lesson learned. If the solid mass of negative reviews staring back at you on this website is not enough 'evidence' for you, I don't know what else to tell you. Now their website is down. Can't believe PC has not been shut down and the people/person behind it have not come under scrutiny from the law. This is thievery, done on the backs of people who just want to revisit a little bit of their childhood, but has now been soured by this whole experience.
Where are you
I have been a PC customer, with multiple thousands of $ in unfulfilled orders.
Initial all seem fine, until Aug 2017. I had to bring in consumer affairs, finally got a response only to be deceived by [name removed] again.
After joining the PC Complaints facebook, I commenced seeking support from my Credit Card financial institution, I was able to claw back monies for 24 orders which took until Mar 2018.
3 more orders remain which included store credit as part payment needing to be recovered. To do this i initiated a dispute through VCA...T as a small business claims. Part of this process requires, me the applicant, to send claim information (verified by stat declaration that this was done) my claim to business owner, [name removed]. I physically mail (registered mail) this to PC's ASIC registered business address, as well as electronically via PC email address, including [name removed] email address (no reply). 19 days later I received the registered mail return to sender with comment "signed by accident not at this address".
Scammers!!!!!!!! Dont believe the cheap prices!!!!!!
Had on order placed over a year ago, item has been available for at least 8 months and have still not received it! Sent an email and after ages got a reply saying I will receive the item in Feb, it is now May had previously sent an email in march requesting a refund and got no reply. They take your money and send you nothing, think about it seriously, the prices they offer on Hot Toys are not realistic especially when you factor in loyalty points and the 20 percent off sales you are paying less than cost. Sounds too good to be true because it i...s!!! Save your money and pay retail with Popcultcha or some other reputable company its not worth the stress and disappointment. I will be contacting Queensland police and A Current Affair about their business practices as they are stealing money!!!!
How Is This Company Still In Business....???
How this company is still functioning is beyond my understanding.... Pre-orders that are delayed from month to month then from year to year. No communication concerning updates on orders apart from the same messages posted on the website communicating supplier relationship breakdowns and stock unavailability (yet the website still enables you to purchase the items communicated as unavailable....). The amount of times that the company has communicated change of customer service contact e-mail addresses is a definite sign of foul behavior and bla...med server crashes as the result of the influx of customer inquiries sent to them for not replying to order inquiries is of an extremely unprofessional manner. This company is some how working within the shadows of some law to still function as I have not heard a single positive comment about the experience supplied. My guess is the pre-order amounts are placed into an account that gains interest and the owner of the company is laundering the amount that is gained by the money siting in the account for long enough. I could not stress to someone who is considering purchasing from them not to. The worst representation of what an online shop should be. Extremely unprofessional and fraudulent. I had to go through my bank to retrieve the amounts paid back. Orders from this company are online apparitions: you will never see them.
Ripped Me Off Too
Same as everyone else, 3 pre orders still waiting 2 years later and no response from the Premium Rip off artists. NEVER buy from them.
NO PRODUCTS, NO RESPONSE!!!
Ordered Black Panther Marvel Legends set back in December 2017 with ETA of Jan/Feb 2018. Mid March 2018 asked why the hold up. No response. Total waste of time. Now I've missed out on the set! I'd give them -100,000 stars if I could!!!
Like everyone else, I too spent a large amount of money placing preorders with Premium Collectables only to have them miss their due date by months and months and months. Whenever I contacted them, I received no reply. After many late orders and no responses I had to go through the ordeal of getting a chargeback for each of my orders. Fortunately my credit card company was aware of the poor business practices of Premium Collectables and I recovered the thousands of dollars owed to me. My advice would be to use a better store such as Popcultcha ...or Sideshow. Their prices / rewards programs mean that you get very close to the Premium Collectables prices, plus they are more reliable, provide way better communication and fast delivery. Please don't make the same mistakes I did.
A layer cake of lies. I feel like such an idiot.
I got strung along so easily by the many stories spun by this clown I feel ashamed of myself. Just like what all of the other reviewers have said, the price IS too good to be true. Customer service is non existent, he lies and lies, and lies some more on his website and is only interested in finding new ways to take your money. Multiple orders outstanding since 2016, nothing sent since mid 2017. DONT SHOP HERE! And do you best to get your money back NOW.
