Product Information

All products listed on HIMP website are described to the best of our abilities and in accordance with the information that has been provided to us by the manufacturers and/or suppliers. Whilst we try to ensure that information and materials on the Website are correct, some variations in images or descriptions may occur due to individual computer settings or inadvertent error. We will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions.

All prices are expressed in AUD and exclude GST and delivery charges. GST will be charged except for Export orders which are sent GST FREE. 

Prices displayed on the Website are current except for products marked as pre-order. Prices published on pre-order items are estimates only and are subject to change.

Product Availability and Advance Orders

All Registered Stockists can order any products on offer in the Website. Although most of the products in the Website are readily available, some items may be out of stock or marked as pre-orders. All products offered in the Website are therefore subject to availability.

Items are marked as pre-order if:

● Products are already in transit or are awaiting delivery from the manufacturer; or
● Items are for future release and available for advance orders. These are often but not limited to highly collectable and/or limited-run items, which are announced before the manufacturing process.

If you wish to order a product that is marked as a pre-order, we will put it on advance order and notify you once the product is already available for shipment to you. Placing an advance order is a commitment to take the ordered quantity without variation and failure to comply with this will result in closure of the account.      

Please note that the estimated time of arrival or any item release dates published on the Website is based on what the manufacturer has provided to us and may change depending on but not limited to, manufacturing problems, transport delays or sudden weather changes. In which case, we will notify you of any delays that may occur.

If you wish to order an out of stock product, please contact us at +61 2 9605 5944 or send your inquiry to himp@hobbyco.com.au and we will try our best to source the product for you. However there may be some instances where a product is no longer available or is part of a discontinued line and therefore, placing an order on an out-of-stock product is not guaranteed to be supplied. If we are able to procure the product from the manufacturer, we will put it on backorder in your account and notify you when it arrives.

In the rare circumstance that a product marked as in stock is purchased through the Website when it is actually unavailable and cannot be put on backorder, you will be informed of the unavailability and you will be entitled to cancel your order. We will not be held liable for any claims or damages whatsoever in the event of the unavailability of products displayed on the Website.
