I hope they do send the 3 accessories Beth, just a hassle sending it back. I sent SS an e-mail last night, hopefully I hear back from them earlier in the week & work this all out.

Dale/Jamie, I had a similiar problem when I bought Maul last year. I got two of the same right hand and was missing one of the left hands. I called the customer service number, they were real helpfull and they just sent out the extra hand, so I didn't have to sned mine back at all. It was still a little annoying, but I understand mistakes happen sometimes and they dealt with as they should have, so overall I was still happy. I think they'll do the same for you guys.

I received an e-mail back from customer service, a replacement order has been booked & will ship shortly. I'm very happy with that.  :)

I received an email back to, and in a short 30-60 days, my part should arrive in their warehouse and get sent along to me. Yay.

Good news for both of us, better customer service than some other places I have delt with.

Glad to hear it Dale.  I think customer service is key to any business, too bad some businesses don't hold the same point of view.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

You already have your THREE missing pieces, and it takes 30-60 days to get me a freaking tiny metal rod!?

Still waiting on my rod, but after some rather ugly emails back and forth regarding my Stealth Iron Man I had to return, I finally got shipping confirmation for my droid support. I cannot believe they are shipping something that fit inside a regular envelope via UPS instead of USPS. I hope my UPS driver can carry that package all the way to my door. I'll leave him a water bottle just in case.

I know you all love Sideshow's customer service, but at least with me they are 0 for 2. the debacle that has been created trying to replace a scratched statue has really turned me off of them. Their inability to answer the most simple of questions is really turning into an art form.
