Get your preorders in, supposed to be a limited pressing, but I didn't see an actual number.

Ordered! Glad I don't have to re-buy 10.2.

Did anyone else get signed up for a myexpresscheckout thing?

Thanks for the note -- I just ordered mine.

Did anyone else get signed up for a myexpresscheckout thing?That's just something Warner (with Rhino being a part of the Warner corporate umbrella) does for letting people tracking their online orders.

$11.50 plus tax for one movie... hmmm.... I'll probably just rebuy the whole 10.2 so I can keep my original 10 sealed. The whole set will probably be $30 during deepdiscount's sales or cheaper at amazon sometime. Plus it is still unclear what Shout! will do with these movies now.

What's "10.2" referring to? Is it a reboxed Vol. 10?

Yes, with Gila replacing (I forget, whichever movie had the rights issue).

One of the Godzilla flicks (vs Megalon IIRC)

On a related note to Vol. 10, did MST3K Vol. 9 also go out-of-print?

From the Satellite News http://www.mst3kinfo.com/


UPDATE 3: We’re now being told that the disks will not actually ship until Feb. 11. “Since this is a limited edition special run we need extra time to get the product ready,” our source said.

No biggie, just hope the packaging is nice and not a cardboard sleeve.

I got this email this morning:

When I got the same message I was worried that my PREorder had now become a BACKorder and could then turn into a CANCELed order because the limited run turned out to be a bit TOO limited for the orders they received, but if everyone else is getting the same message, then maybe I won't be left out after all, just delayed, which is okay as long as I get it.

Just thought I would mention 2 things, first there's a thread over in DVD Talk about the Shout Factory picking up the MST3K catalog from Rhino, well worth reading, it was news to me.

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=523402

Also, secondly, the movie is coming back into print in may, it is up for preorder at Amazon.

Because it was moved from the main section into Bargains, where it does not belong, and my thread in Feedback has so far been ignored.

Agreed. I have gotten 4 emails...I get it. However, my gut tells me that they might have gotten more orders than inventory.

Over on MST3Kinfo.com they have an update from a source at Rhino that says it will be shipping around the 28th.

Autumn

They have authorized the charge again on my account, so I hope this means it is shipping now.

Same here :fc:

Autumn

Well, I have the same backorder e-mail this morning. I have no clue why they have authorized my purchase again. Is this something Rhino does periodically while they await the DVD?

I don't think I've ever ordered directly from them.

Same thing happened to me. I thought for sure it was shipping this time.

Autumn
03-03-08, 12:12 PM
I just checked over at the MST3Kinfo site and someone posted to their boards that Rhino still hasn't received the DVDs from their warehouse yet. Many people over there also had charges authorized, but then received the same backorder e-mail this morning. The person called Rhino c/s today, so I guess we still don't know when it will ship. To quote someone over there, "It sounds like Rhino needs to start calling their warehouse."

I finally got a shipping notice. I placed my order on 1/31.

dhmac
03-05-08, 02:34 PM
Damn, I hate Rhino! I ordered on 1/31 and in the intervening month, I canceled the credit card I used due to some other issues. So I created an "Express Checkout" account at Rhino with a different card. But Rhino canceled my order because of the initial card with just an e-mail message to re-order it, even though it is no longer available at their site. So I called them and they basically said "sorry, it's not available anymore". Their screwed-up processing of this messed me up entirely!

Autumn
03-05-08, 02:51 PM
I just received notice mine has shipped too. Yippee!

I can't say I'm surprised. We've had a few problems with packages here. I have Amazon Prime now because of those problems. I am hoping it arrives today. Our mail carrier is great, but apparently the sorting department in our area is not up to speed.

Not only that but at some points parts of bodies disappear. It wouldn't surprise me if the bad effect was intentional. Doesn't matter since it's still fun to watch.

I don't know - it didn't look totally green screen to me. Maybe the background was and they just mocked up the desk. The one Frank and the doctor were in front of obviously was though.

I was watching this on a laptop so maybe that's why it wasn't as apparent to me.

I guess it's better than what we got with Cinematic Titan!

The back says "Includes replacement flick starring on equally terrifying but much less litigious reptile."

Overall pretty cool that Rhino gave us this disc at all for those of us who already own season 10.

On ebay, this single-disc release is fetching upwards or even higher than the cost of the complete 10.2 box-set costs. Crazy!

Argh!!! I finally opened up my copy last night and there's a crack in the DVD, which causes the episode to freeze up about 20 minutes into the episode.

I've e-mailed Rhino customer service, but given the limited nature of this DVD, I'm not optimistic about getting an exchange for a good copy.

I've got to hand it to Rhino. I notified them about the cracked DVD that I received and inquired about exchanging it. They went ahead and sent out a replacement without requiring me to send my defective DVD back.

The replacement arrived yesterday and looks fine (haven't played it yet).

Anyone want to buy a broken MST3K DVD? :)
