slangards: Sometimes I'm tempted just to go ahead and get the item in the mall anyway, just in case the pre-order doesn't pan out. Sept 18, 2014 6:03:01 GMT 8
slangards: Although I like pre-ordering for the convenience (especially when you work nights and it's hard to get to the mall) sometimes it's hard waiting for the item to arrive, especially when the item actually arrives in malls before you're pre-order does. Sept 18, 2014 6:02:05 GMT 8
wingsaber24: The advantage of preordering is that you get the item at a much lower price but the disadvantages are if the one bringing in the items suddenly cancels the order or if you still don't have enough cash to make the preorder :p Sept 12, 2014 18:50:05 GMT 8
Gold: Priority is given to those who preordered. That's about it. The downside is if you preorder, you cannot cancel and get your downpayment back. Sept 12, 2014 18:00:03 GMT 8
chuckbartowski: -- advantage? you pay (in full) for the item when it comes. downside? sometimes there are just too many who preordered the same item that the store you got it from can't give you one. better chances though than just walking in with high hopes! Sept 12, 2014 12:00:19 GMT 8
kris: What are the advantages/ disadvantages of pre ordering an item? Sorry if this is dense as I am new to pre ordering. Thanks! Sept 12, 2014 11:19:44 GMT 8

domeng26: media is silent in this because it involves the police, i think internal affairs are on to this. Sept 9, 2014 8:11:03 GMT 8
chuckbartowski: wow. so the underreporting of kidnapping is true? may those horrible kidnappers die like stanley tucci in the lovely bones. Sept 8, 2014 16:59:12 GMT 8

domeng26: Heard stories about a student from ICA got kidnap and when the parents told by the police what happened the kidnappers just killed the student. Sept 8, 2014 13:35:14 GMT 8
Gold: .... or... I could be flat out wrong and the shops just want to super maximize their profits. Lol... :D Sept 6, 2014 21:52:00 GMT 8
Gold: some shops just order 3rd party from other (non-local) shops and let the price fall where it may. Odd but it happens. Especially if there's a minimum order quantity issue involved. Sept 6, 2014 21:27:50 GMT 8 *
Gold: from, what with delays and messy order status. Unlike with big companies like Hastak, which rarely fail to deliver a finished product. So rather run the risk of getting burned from the preorder downpayment and have no item arrive, Sept 6, 2014 21:20:52 GMT 8 *
Gold: and/or the possibility that the shop didn't get direct from the source company and maybe just got from other (non-local) toy shops? Making it a tertiary market selling price. Which I think is likely. 3rd party companies can be sometimes a pain to preorder Sept 6, 2014 21:14:52 GMT 8 *
Gold: Oh.. sorry, I misread your post, I thought you meant in general terms, I didn't realize you meant specifically local toy shop prices. That's a tricky topic. It basically boils down to how much local shops plan to sell the item Sept 6, 2014 21:07:56 GMT 8 *
