Big update!
Since I have some surplus funds, I've gone ahead and submitted a request to Parcl for the goods.  I've got 11 items ordered for now, including the frightmare wystearya wanted and the Rochelle Knightfire requested.  I know Claire tried to order from there but nobody responded, so maybe my order will attract some attention.

Awesome!

*hopes for the best*   ^.^

OK, well the Frightmare I want is the top left. 

Blue horse body, with white 'human' face.

For anyone interested in ordering some of the dolls from Miramida's site, I'm taking orders for a potential June order via Parcl in the Sales section. :)

I hope we can.  I'd love one of the full size Frightmares!

OK I don't know if these prices are correct, and if it's per piece or set (ex. set of 4)...
...
^^Underlining mine.

So, uh, is there a color choice or is it random? 

Just trying to be sure, as some of the colors I don't like at all.

Thanks!

Whoo hoo the Frightmares!

I *assume* there is a choice of color? 

Anyway, yes, depending on cost I would want at least one if not two.

Can we post a link to this in the Fakie thread?  << Or is that allowed?

If they have the Centaurs in stock I would be interested! (I haven't found them, but I am not good at navigating the site either.)

(Also depending on total cost.)

Your welcome.  I am glad to get the word out and try to save someone else the hassle!

It is really underhanded, and a shame that a company with a relatively good reputation resorted to this.   :annoyed:

Your welcome!

I am also letting my friends and family know.  This was just bad.  I really was surprised because I trusted Amazon more than other companies.  But ... wow...  This just shocked me and made me angry.   :annoyed:

Again, I am glad we were able to cover the charges and we are getting a FULL refund.  However, the method they used to do this was in poor taste.

IF anything was said on that question page about it being for Prime, I sure didn't see it.  Maybe it was in tiny print, or even down the page where I would have to scroll.  But honestly, it needed to be *obvious* and not hidden like that.   :|

Well, guess I dislike ALL companies again.  Amazon used to be my exception.  *sigh*

Off Topic / Amazon tricked me, bad business
« on: May 21, 2017, 09:02:52 AM »
This is also posted on the MLP Arena.  But I think it is important enough to post here also as a warning/heads up.

----------------------------------------------

Ok, let me tell you what happened just a little while ago.

I was about to place an order on Amazon. 

While placing the order, the screen said I would get free shipping on my item if I answered a question.  I felt like this was just some survey and didn't mind the question, so I answered it.  Well, I was immediately charged for a YEAR of Prime membership after submitting my answer..!!   There was NO confirmation of the fact it was for Prime nor for the amount of the charge..!  Thank heaven we just got paid and had the money.  I cancelled right away.  But now $105 is tied up for 3-5 business days until the refund comes through.  What a rotten trick!!!   >_<

I do not have Prime and do not want it at this time.  I don't order much or use the other services. 

Please be careful if you don't have Prime when ordering from Amazon.  I guess this is their new tactic to get people to sign up for membership.    :mad:

I have sent Amazon an email telling them I thought this was tricky.  I am disappointed.  I used to love Amazon, but I am stunned by this latest move.  I don't know why a quality company needs to resort to such methods.  I am not happy about the sudden charge.  I am not happy about having money tied up for up to a week.  We are on a budget and this was not in it..!  If it had been a week later we may have also had an overdraft fee from the bank because of lack of funds.   This is NOT ok.  I am sure some people will get this and it's not good.   :(

*ugh*  *sigh*

Thanks for letting me rant.   I also wanted to warn others who may not have Prime.  I don't want someone else to end up with tied up funds, or worse, an overdraft fee from the bank!

Yes, there are many 'hidden' conditions and many different types of suffering in this world.  You never know what someone else may be going through.  I went through a lot growing up.  I had an emotional abuse situation at home with my Mom.  I had low self esteem.  Between one *teacher* and the kids, grade school was extremely difficult.  People say they don't understand how such young kids even consider or think about suicide.  Well, sadly, I *can* relate to those kids, and it breaks my heart.  No one outside of my Mom really knew my situation.  My Dad knew some, but I hid a lot because I was afraid of my Mom.  (Things are MUCH better now that I am older.  I know my Mom had/has her own issues too.)  But anyway, there are many, many different issues people have that are not always obvious by looks.

I do wish there was more in place for those who need help in this society.  I mean like ways to get people OUT of the house.  Just to be able to socialize (if they want to) and get fresh air and see something new.  I know everything costs money.  *ugh*  But I do hope very much that one day society will get to where money is no longer a hurdle and we both can and actually do take CARE of one another.

It may never be in my lifetime.  But I have hope for a better future.  Hope that kids are taught better.  Hope that those who are not taught get tired of the violence and cruelty.  Hope for more open hearts and minds.  >> I guess I dream big, but this is how I feel!

While I cannot personally relate, I just want to say I am sorry.  I've never understood being cruel and hurtful to someone just because they are not "normal".  I'm not sure I ever will understand.

I think society has come a long way, BUT there is still such a long way to go.

Whenever I have a bad day I remind myself to be thankful that I *can* do X, Y, or Z.  My husband's best friend will never be able to live on his own.  His condition is obvious at a glance though, but still he cannot do what others can. 

I'm a bit odd in that I do sometimes in my mind wonder what it must be like for someone like him (or anyone else) that literally can not do the things they want due to some condition.  I know people find their own way, be it through attitude or faith or what have you.  But still, I do feel sympathy/empathy.  (Not sure which word is correct here.  :P )

My husband and I try to raise his girls (my step-daughters) to be kind and accepting.  It's hard, as there *are* so many stereotypes. 

I just wanted to say that there are people out there who care.  Even if you never meet us.  There are (thankfully) still good people in the world.  You just sometimes have to look for them. 

I hope I have not upset anyone or said anything hurtful.  This is not at all my intent!  I simply wanted to say that some people do care!

I *may* go to eBay if I don't get any interest in a week or so.

Though, I would *much* prefer to avoid eBay!  :P

Thanks!

Those hips/thighs are terrifying...

Everything else I kind of expect from the reboot/dolls aimed at a younger market, but those hip joints look horrific.


I wondered about the hips/thigh gap thing.  But I thought maybe it was just me.  :P 

But yeah, not sure what to think about the hips on these.

The faces do look better.

But less joints and painted on clothing = a big NOPE from me.   :P
