STOCK! As we are doing our best to keep inventory and ETA's updated, we all know that for the past 8+ Months the shipping and distribution has been a real nightmare caused by massive shortage of man power. This is causing constant changes in products ETA's and some items we expected to arrive may experience some delay. In that case we will inform you immediately if your order or pre-order will be delayed accordingly. 
please be patient as we are all on this same crazy ride.

We utilize an array of fraud prevention software on our e-commerce page. In the event an order is flagged as potentially fraudulent, we reserve the right to request identification before shipping (usually a State ID or Driver's License) to check the validity of the order and to ensure the utmost security for our customers.
