Well 8 does come after 2 does it not. Someone not me mentioned that 2 years was the time limit or something but in actual fact some have waited nearly 8 years for the models and some are still waiting for some to come out.
Yes asking for a refund is there, but if someone in your family needs the money immediately for medical expenses etc or similar you will have to wait a bit for it all to be sorted out. I would rather myself like to pay for it when it comes in, then if little Johnny breaks his leg or something you simply use the money for that loco to pay for little Johnnys medical expenses. A lot of things can happen in your life in 8 years, some have even died waiting for their models to come in. We are not all 20 year olds you know.
Bottom line is that the money was never lost and it was a totally ridiculous statement as I previously said.
