Please note, however, that this Privacy Policy applies only to sites operated by Fun Publications, and not to Web sites operated by other companies or organizations to which we link. When you link to any other sites from a Fun Publications Web site, this policy no longer applies and Fun Publications does not control the activities of those sites. In addition, this Privacy Policy applies only to the information that Fun Publications collects online, not offline.

Memberships are non-refundable due to free product promotions and discounted items.

We also have a Firm Order Policy. This means that we do not order, hold, or place aside any quantities of products until we receive payment with your order (we do bill your credit card right away to make sure that it is valid). All orders are processed on a first come, first served basis. We cannot guarantee a C10 box. We do not warrant the respective manufacturer¹s work, but they do. Orders paid for by check, please allow an additional 21 days for your check to clear for items in stock. Partial case packs of Accessory Cards or Basic Figures cannot be returned. SALES ARE FINAL.

For pre-order items: Expect delivery in 6-12 weeks after the deadline dates. All pre-order items will ship as soon as the manufacturer delivers the products to us.

Please note that the billing on your credit card statement will be under the name Fun Publications, Inc. (our company name).

If you have selected a Transformers Club membership, any memberships received before the 16th of the month will start with the next month's issue.
