    You should get a refund and send it to JPop for a Magic Girl.

    Seriously, do you know how manufacturing works? Paying in full for something that routinely has long delays and then complaining when it's delayed doesn't make sense to me.

    What were your expectations when you bought the machine from your distributor?

    Why did you pay in full before the machine was being shipped?

    Quoted from Gort:

    I asked my distributor January 11th if he was getting Met Pro's that month? His reply was " Yes we are. I would send a check soon if you want one." I sent a check on the 12th of January, still no game.

    What benefit are you getting for providing an interest-free loan to your distributor?

    Quoted from gweempose:

    I'm in the same boat. I paid my distributor in full for a MET pro a couple months ago. At the time, I was told the game would be shipping soon, and I had no reason to doubt that. I've bought several NIB Sterns, and I always received them when my distributor said I would. Like I said before, this was an unprecedented situation for Stern. Unforeseen supply issues created a huge backlog of orders. They are slowly trying to dig their way out of this mess, but it's going to take time.

    You're absolutely right. And when my order wasn't filled I would get a refund and buy when they were available. You and others who have bought other pins have not done that. Why not? You must feel there is a benefit you're getting or a penalty you're avoiding by letting the distributor hold your money. I'm trying to understand the thinking process.

    Quoted from centerflank:

    Because most of us don't want to fuck over our distributor, you know, make an agreement to buy and stick to it.......................................... then say nah, I'm out. <---Bushleague

    I share your sentiment and expect my business associates to do the same. When they can't/don't/won't fulfill my order in my expected timeframe they return my money.

    Making that clear in writing when you buy something avoids a lot of misunderstandings.
