Customer Support strives to answer all inquiries as quickly as possible. We answer all emails in the order in which they are received. We attempt to answer all emails within one business day.

Ordering & Order Statuses
If you want to place an order on our website we require an email address to be associated with the order. This email address will also be your user id so you can log in and change your personal information. We will use this email address to send order confirmations and shipping notices as well.
Processing – When you place your order and the payment has been received, your order moves to this status.
Awaiting Pickup - Order has been pulled, and is awaiting customer pickup from a seller-specified location.
Partially Shipped - Only some items in the order have been shipped, due to some products being pre-order only or other reasons.
On Hold - This status means that your order has been received and your items reserved, however, processing will not occur until a later time. This delay in processing could be because your order has an item that is on preorder. If your order contains one or more preorders your order will be processed and shipped once all preorder item(s) have released.
Shipped - The shipped status means that your order has been completed and a shipping label has been placed on your package. You will receive an email shortly after your shipping label has been created with your tracking number. Tracking information can take up to 24 hours after the packages have been picked up by the shipping company to show transit information.
Out of Stock
If an item is out of stock on your order, we will refund your account for the item and ship the rest of the order. There are exceptions when we know an item will be restocked shortly, in which case we will hold the order and ship it in its entirety once the item arrives.
Payment, Pricing & Promotions
All pricing is listed in USD.
Our website accepts all major credit cards and PayPal as acceptable methods of payment.
Sometimes we will temporarily discount a product's price or run promotions on certain product lines. These changes are time-sensitive and Gotham City Hobbies/BattleCityGym reserves the right to end a promotion at any time. Orders placed before a sale begins or after the expiration will not be eligible for the promotional rate.
Gotham City Hobbies/BattleCityGym reserves the right to cancel any orders containing pricing errors, with no further obligations to you, even after an order confirmation has been received. In the case of a pricing error Gotham City Hobbies/BattleCityGym will contact you via email regarding the error and will process a full refund for the order.
Many times we offer products for sale before they are released by the manufacturer. If you purchase one of these items, payment is required at the time the order is placed. If there are other items on the order, we will not ship the entire order until the preorder product comes out. If an item is listed as a preorder item , it means the item is not yet available and we are taking advance orders. The quantity available and 'In Stock' notation displays the amount we have left based on our current order with the supplier.
Orders that contain preorder will ship out in one shipment when your order is 100% in-stock.
Subject to Allocation
All preorders are subject to allocation based on distributor availability.
In the event that a products has been allocated by our distributor we will fill orders as FIFO (First in, First Out) any remaining orders will receive a full refund.
What is subject to allocation?
Allocation is when a distributor or supplier can not full-fill the requested amount ordered.
Ex. We order 1000 units from our distributor, but they can only fill 600 units because the demand is so high of a specific product.
