Tried to buy one, but it didn't process. Looked at my bank account and noticed they put a hold in the amount. So now I have to wait for that to drop off. That's one of the things I've always hated about WBshop. This is like the 9th time this has happened to me.

Never mind the previous post. It took the order, but failed to tell me that. And, due to the delay in updating my account's order status, I ordered another one. Both went through. What a pain.

As much as I would like this, I still can't justify paying that much for one movie.

I just placed the order for one and it said they can't take the order and to call.

Same. I got the SD ULTIMATE for $12 new and that will suffice. Nearly $50 for a single movie is crazy, but it would be nice if this restock knocked some of the more outrageous resellers out of the running. I'm not against a healthy profit, but some resellers just go overboard with OOP stuff.

I just called to order and they told me they didn't have any in stock.

Could've mentioned that it was $47.95 before discounts in the OP. Just saying.

I liked Watchmen, but not a Grant's worth. I'm holding off on the Japanese Proto-Hunger Games Complete Edition for $18, so the heck am I going for this.

^ Anybody can sign up for Insider Rewards and get the discount. Only takes a few seconds... But yeah, he coulda mentioned the price. I'm just happy for the post. I hope this comes through...

Is this a debit or CC or direct Bank transfer? Every CC charge I ever make has a temporary charge listed -- often it's a full charge, sometimes just a $1 temp charge. If it doesn't complete within a week or so, the temp charge goes away and it will be added again when the item ships. Those charges are phantoms and don't directly affect the CC limits until the charge becomes real.

I was under the impression that was SOP for debit cards as well -- real money holds at gas stations for $50 or 75 until the actual charge goes through and those funds are unavailable for use at all.

This sounds too good to be true, considering this title is long OOP. Hopefully our orders will be fulfilled.

I was under the impression that was SOP for debit cards as well -- real money holds at gas stations for $50 or 75 until the actual charge goes through and those funds are unavailable for use at all.For debit, at least with my account, they're real until they drop off. The bank assumes the amount, in this case the full amount of the item, is actual and holds the money aside to avoid overdrafts. It'll drop off in a week, as you said, but until then the money is held aside unless the business contacts them and tells them to drop it.

But, as I wrote just under my initial post, the order went through. Despite the notice that popped up and said it didn't work, and that I should call an agent, I got an email saying it was received. Since I didn't see that until the second order went through, I presume that means I got two orders. :/

This will all probably be a cluster-cuss. The agent mentioned above said it's out of stock and, unless this was somehow warehoused in some secret installation and WBshop just learned of its location, these are truly all gone. Although, sometimes the agents don't know what the heck they're talking about. So it's possible...

Maybe that's what WB is trying to cash-in on. This is a highly sought-after release with virtually every copy being sold in a short period of time.

We'll see what happens. :up:

This is probably the only Blu-ray I was willing to pay a considerable amount for.

Last time they had this in stock, but not really, it took four months to ship. Not kidding.

i actually bought this on eBay, saw it, was indifferent to the cut, knew i would nver watch it again and returned it unharmed within 7 days. i am so glad i didn't pay for this. such a waste at any price.

Anyone get any feedback yet on orders? Mine still says 'processing' and the money has been held on my CC. Not holdng my breath, but it would be nice to know either way.

You bought this from someone on eBay, watched it and returned it?
That's kind of a scummy move.

That's kind of a scummy move.

the condition of the set was not exactly as described either and i couldn't live with such a set. they took it back no problem and i am sure resold.

I sold mine on eBay last year for over $100 when I saw such high demand for it.

They took the hold off on my card ~ I am assuming these will not ship. (No surprise there.)

Not necessarily, the hold comes off sometimes gets put back once a month or so until it ships.

Yep, Cancelled. Oh well, I was about to cancel it myself. Too much money for such a movie.

I didn't get a call or email, but mine shows cancelled as well.

Mine arrived this morning. Some shelf wear on the edges, but overall looks to be in decent shape and definitely the Bluray Set.

I'd really like to know where all the sets came from. They look like sets that have been sitting on a store/storage shelf unsold and were likely returned to WB.

I was in fye not long ago and they had a couple versions of the DVD set. They seem to get odd things like this in stock from time to time, so that might be a good place to check.

I have the DVD set--that's quite common, priced around $15. I just wanted the blu-ray. :/

Imagine if they re-issue this. Aftermarket seller prices would tank. I would love to see that. lol

Maybe to tie-in with the new "Before Watchmen" comic?
