Delivery time
When we have the items that make up your order in stock, it is dispatched quickly. If you have pre-ordered an item it will ship to arrive at or around the release date. If you are ordering items along with a pre-order all items will ship together, you should place two orders if you would like the currently available releases immediately shipped. While the USPS quotes expected delivery times there are no guarantees or refunds if items do not arrive within the quoted time.
