Forget buying minis straight from Paizo


Paizo General Discussion


I thought I had struck gold last month when Paizo offered an extra 20% off of their bargain bin minis, but boy was I wrong. I ordered a bunch of minis for the campaign I just started running thinking I would have them in 2-4 weeks, but I just checked on the status since they hadn't shipped yet and they are telling me that they will ship in an unknown timeframe. It has been 25 days since I ordered.

Apparently, the items that were in stock when I ordered are now not available. Paizo apparently doesn't have the decency to let you know with a simple e-mail. I wouldn't be that annoyed if they had let me know and maybe shipped the items that were available, since they are only waiting on 2 out of 10. I paid almost the same for shipping as I did for the products I ordered, so I am pretty ticked off to have been screwed out of the stuff I needed. I have been having to use LEGO minifigs as stand ins for the NPCs in my campaign. I could have saved myself the hassle and expense if I had just never bothered to buy minis. Buyer beware, I guess.

Have you tried contacting Paizo staff about your problem? Or are do you just want to rant instead of solving it?

Hey rwittas, I'm sorry for your troubles.

I took a look at your order and the miniature that is holding it up isn't in fact part of the 20% off sale and is just a regular Reaper miniature at our regular price. We have had it on order directly from Reaper but are still waiting for it to arrive. We can cancel just the outstanding mini (RPR77014 Zombies x3) and ship the rest if you like. Just let us know.
