    I thought it would be a good idea to get a list of what companies have filled their orders already, and what companies haven't. I thought it may reveal a trend with vendors and further help out the haunt industry. So post a list of who you have already received your stuff from and who you haven't. If you have spoken with or received communication from those that haven't please put that in parenthesis next to the company so we know they are keeping contact.

    You know, that's one of the funny things I think about whenever I see newbies talking a blue-streak about all the cool stuff they are going to buy or have ordered at Transworld for 10's of thousands of dollars that is going into this season's haunt, and I'm always wondering in the back of my mind "yeah, sounds great, but will it actually get to you in time to include in your show?"

    Having 10's of thousands of dollars tied up in orders that haven't arrived yet can be frustrating enough, but when your show depends on them getting there and letting you have a show that will pay for said props, you just gotta wonder. That's 10's of thousands of dollars of potential investment that your show won't see, and that you can't spend on anything else.

    But, hey, at least the props will look cool . . . when they reach you in November. You could do a Haunted Thanksgiving themed event when they finally arrive.

    I would also like to add Nethercraft to the list as a QUALITY seller.

    While we have always gotten our orders before opening... a few "big" companies have done a pretty poor job communicating & handling problems with our orders.
    these guys aren't like that, they actually called us & wanted to know when they could ship..in June!
    I can't wait until march to buy more of their product to add to what we bought this year & create more sets.

    These are the vendors we did business with last year (our first pro season) and this year since TransWorld orders:

    FrightProps (absolutely outstanding customer service, fast delivery, and awesome products)
    -received TransWorld order in late April/early May, have placed and received another order since

    Edge Design (same as above, great people)
    -placed phone order toward end of May and received middle of June

    Nightscream Studios (same praise)
    -TrandWorld order received by end of April/early May

    Froggy Fog (excellent customer service and products)
    -TransWorld order placed and received by late April

    Brutal Rust-easy transaction, order placed at TransWorld received by middle of May


    ***HOWEVER, awful communication and updates from:

    Minions Web
    -small order placed at TransWorld, deposit charged sometime in late April/early May with updated order #.
    -spoke to owner one or twice back in May just to have an idea when orders were being sent out, late June/early July which is fine by us.
    -Have called and left multiple messages in the past few weeks with no response as to status of order, other half has still not been charged.
    -I understood the owner was dealing with personal things but it's been since about mid-May since I've been able to contact him...

    Anyone else having order and/or serious communications issues with MINIONS WEB?

    Also almost forgot!

    Four Finger Effects

    It appears to be a smaller operation, but they were at TransWorld this past March. We placed a small order of their AWESOME and EXTREMELY REALISTIC intestines. Order was placed over phone, owner appeared very organized and friendly. Received order a week later so very fast shipping.

    We will more than likely get more intestines before the season starts! :-D

    Fortunately, I've never been in that position, and never plan to be!

    THESE GUYS ARE HORRIBLE. We order a prop from them at Transworld and now their phone numbers aren't in service and the email addresses don't reply.

    Ghost Ride
    We ordered from them in November of 2011 for a sale they had. It is July 31st and we still don't have our complete order. On the invoice it said by April 1, 2012 we would have everything. They don't call with an explination, but they just wait for us to keep bugging them. Recently, they sent us the wrong order.
