photos featured in this listing are Clemens Bears’ stock photos.
However, since the bears are hand-made, even two of the same bear can be
slightly different and we firmly believe that you don’t choose a bear, a
bear chooses you. For those reasons, we photograph every bear we
receive and upload the photos to the Bears Against MS Photo
Gallery (for a link, just click the Photo Gallery icon above). So if we
have more than one of this bear available and you would like to pick a
face, you may do so. However, please read the Important Things To Note below before completing check-out.
Photos in the Bears Against MS Photo
Gallery are organized in folders by manufacturer and type (mohair,
plush, etc.) and by year of release (check this page’s Product Features
to determine that). We add the photos as soon as possible after the
bears are received but photographing hundreds of bears takes time and
some bears are camera shy, so we may have bears whose photos haven’t
been uploaded yet. Photos are initially placed in Reserved But Not Yet Allocated sub-folders
so that collectors who have pre-ordered the bear can choose theirs.
Then once all pre-orders have been satisfied, the photos of bears still
available are moved to the general folders.
Important Things To Note:
moving or removing a photo is all done manually. Sometimes we can do it
immediately after a bear is assigned to a collector but sometimes it
can take us a little time and to be honest, sometimes we simply forget
to do so. Therefore, the photo folders may not always be 100% accurate
as to availability. So if, after viewing the photos, you are only
interested in adopting this bear if you can get a specific one, PLEASE
DO NOT COMPLETE CHECK-OUT AT THIS TIME. Instead, place the bear in your
cart and use our Saved Cart feature so that you can easily find the
listing later and then also use the Contact Us link (in the left side
panel) to ask us to check availability of the specific bear you’d like
to adopt. Please note, the Saved Cart feature does not update our stock quantity or remove the bear from availability to other customers. Our
inventory only updates when we manually change the quantity or
automatically when check out is completed, not when a bear is put in
your cart. Once we confirm that the specific bear you want is available,
we will put that bear aside for you and let you know that you can
proceed to check out.
