I was wondering if anyone else has had problems with Toyfare exclusives.  I ask since way back when, I ordered the swimsuit Leela.  They cashed my check and I never saw it.  I've called and emailed to no avail.  Anyone had similiar problems? 

Fanks!

No, but these delivery services are often late. Just keep bugging them, and they will get round to it.

Maybe it was a scam. Otherwise, keep on calling them. If there is no record, then it's either a scam or they forgot to record it. If you need to, just order a new one.

Also, this thread should've been in the PE Stockroom section.

Well, unfortunately, the SS Leela hasn't been made in a few years and I hate to buy one on eBay.  Anyone have any hints, or where the best deals are?

Have you googled for it yet? Sometimes if you look deep enough into google, there is something there. Or try Futurama Collectorama

Toyfare is notorious for their poor handling of their "exclusive" products.  Any Simpsons toy collector will probably have a story about trying to get a Toyfare exclusive to no avail.  People who've sent in their request forms have them returned because they are supposedley out of stock while the items show up for top dollar on their affiliated websites.  I'm sorry you didn't receive your items.  I'd avoid dealing with them in the future, but you might as well bug the hell out of them until they at least give you an answer.

Thanks.  I had a feeling. 

I had a simliar experience with Boxing Homer.  I sent in my form when I got my ToyFare and recieved a note saying it was sold out.  A friend of mine mailed his order form three weeks later with the subscription renewal checked and he got his Boxing Homer 8 weeks later.  Not cool from my standpoint.  To be honest, it kinda ruined me on the whole Simpsons line to the point where I went from buying all figure up to series 9, to buying 4 figures out of the following 5 series.
