I had ordered a First Order Snowtrooper helmet a few years ago via Megalopolis Toys. Out of the blue yesterday I got a shipping notice. I never thought I would see that product ship... Holy Cow!!!

Now I have a little hope for the Sabine helmet shipping....

Oh my! I ordered the Sabine helmet and Rey's staff ages ago. I was almost hoping they would never come, that was a lot of shelf space ago.

Just got my notice too, that was two debit cards ago so I had to update my account. I deleted the Rey staff and kept the Sabine helmet, i looks like a great piece.

Wow! Hopefully everyone gets the helmets they ordered and even paid for 3-5 years ago!

Just heard back from them, they said all the items I had ordered weren't going to arrive and the order is cancelled. Megalopolis had this huge sale back in 2018 on Anovos products, and I bet they are clearing them all out, the ones that will ship and the ones that wont.

I have a feeling they are just wiping their system clean of all these old, bogus Anovos pre-orders that will never be shipping. Unless, by coincidence, all three of the things I got weren't coming but the Snowtrooper helmet is.

So did it actually ship and were you charged for it?

Even if it were only a handful of orders from retailers that ANOVOS was fulfilling, I figure we'd hear more about it.

With Megalopolis having its own issues, I hope it's not some weird issue.

Looks like it will be a false alarm. I have emailed and called their tech support for tracking and no response. I am going to wait another week or so and then turn the charge into my credit card company,.

There's a big ANOVOS thread on The Replica forum that I check in on from time to time. There were no indications that anyone has received any product shipping notifications from anywhere, and I feel like someone would've heard about it.

Megalopolis Toys is having its own issues fulfilling orders on top of that, to the point where they have an email account setup just for refunds. A lot of complaints going around.

I would get your money back ASAP.

Video talking about orders not being fulfilled and not getting refunds:

Back in 2018, Megalopolis ran a promo with I think 20% off on all Star Wars purchases (maybe 15%). Included were a whole host of Anovos Star Wars items and helmets. I preordered the Rey Staff, a Sabine Helmet, and an Imperial Officer badge. It was a hell of a deal.
They did not precharge for these items, so there is no refund to have. Of course, Anovos never delivered any of the items. In fact, I am not even positive they ever wound up making the staff or Sabine's helmet. If they did, I have never seen them and I have never seen them pop up on eBay.
I am thinking Megalopolis decided to clear out all these pre-orders at once, which is why we all got our notices.

sacarmic was charged. They need to get a refund.

And no, it's not likely ANOVOS has made any Star Wars items recently beyond the Royal Guard helmet and second Shore Trooper helmet.
