TOM Shop Policy Update Regarding Prize Figures
One of our bigger distributors for lower priced crane prize figures will no longer provide replacements for minor paint imperfections or minor quality issues.
TOM will no longer be able to ask for replacements for such issues, and TOM does not offer full refund for minor paint issues for lower priced prize figures.
Please be aware that prize items under $40.00 are mass produced and held to a lower quality standard by manufacturers than most figures.
Depending on the specific quality, TOM will offer TOM points as compensation, please be aware this will be at the full discretion of TOM. Our Shop FAQ has been updated accordingly. Main manufacturers affected are Banpresto and lower priced TAITO figures.
