Re: James Bond 50 complete box set - $39 shipped (All 23 films up to Skyfall)

Lets assume this is legit for a second. If they are offering these sets for just $39 just imagine what they paid for them in the first place.

I dunno about this, but we'll know soon! I posted to their Twitter and FB blatantly asking if this was a bootleg.

EDIT:

They just responded to me. Here is what I asked on FB...

Quote:
Is the Bond 50 Blu-ray set you guys are offering the legit, 100%, authentic, retail version NON-bootleg release? If not, oh man.
And there response just a few minutes later...

Quote:
Hello Brent, thank you for your inquiry. These items we sell are guaranteed brand-new and authentic. We do not sell counterfeits nor imitations. If you require anything else, please don’t hesitate to send us a private message here on Facebook. Have a great day!
They just responded on Twitter as well...

@CBrentL Yes, they are legit and 100% authentic. Go ahead and place your order now. Happy shopping!

I wanted to order but saw way too many reviews on yelp, bbb.org and other sites about this place selling bootleg, damaged and not-as-described items for me to be comfortable.

This should be interesting. Sounds like this place sells merchandise that was damaged in natural disasters, products obtained from overseas warehouses that don't sell authentic materials, etc.

I ordered with my credit card through Paypal. I won't have any problem getting a full refund if this turns out to be some sort of scam.

I'm guessing that if we receive these at all, they'll probably be China made bootlegs. For $40.00, it's worth a shot.

The fact they are selling a set that's cheapest previous price to my knowledge was $95 for less than $40 was too fishy for me.

Hope it works out for everyone but this just seems like they are getting either damaged items or stolen ones. The set released in October, so it isn't like the studio is blowing them out for a newer set.

And why is it still in stock and at the sale price days after the deal was supposed to end?

what makes everyone so sure that this isn't the studios seeking to get rid of excess inventory through a no frills, low cost operational set up like these guys ? I mean, we will know when/if we receive the set - however, the above is not unheard of. Fox may have a few thousand in excess they want to get rid of...

Re: James Bond 50 complete box set - $39 shipped (All 23 films up to Skyfall)

Since the Bond 50 set (including Skyfall) was just released last October, it seems a little early for them to be dumping stock.

If it was the old set that didn't include Skyfall, I could see them trying to get rid of those, though.

Its been a year since Skyfall was released to Home video, so its not like sales are blazing for this title to not be on sale. and this box with Skyfall was nothing special - its the same as the older box set which had an empty slot to fill Skyfall which Fox did, once Skyfall was past peak home video demand and re-released it.

Maybe it is the old 22 disk set with an individual retail copy of Skyfall shrinked wrapped to the outside of the box set.

I remember seeing alot of Skyfall copies (with slipcover) lingering around at Best Buy for the longest time. Take all those leftover single Skyfall copies returned from the retailers and shrink wrap it to the old 22 set and presto, you have the newer 23 movie box set!

Or another huge freighter just docked in the harbor from China...

I've been thinking about reselling some of my old DVDs just to free up some space since I've replaced them with BR, but apparently the resale market is so bad, I'm told it might not be worth the trouble. Good look on getting your payments .

That answers why it was available for yesterday, not again today. It's obvious they are trying to sell through whatever they have, the clock appears to be only a gimmick.

Maybe they just enjoy ripping off Blu Ray collectors $39 at a time?

Wonder how long it'll take for this thing to ship, assuming it does at all? I've found a bunch of complaints about Nomorerack online from people who ordered Christmas presents from them that didn't arrive in time, and some things they did receive were different than what the described item was though there isn't much they could send in place of this other than a bunch of the individual discs instead of the set.

Same here.

Maybe they should have the excess stock destroyed. I think Warner can refer them to someone who does that.

Re: James Bond 50 complete box set - $39 shipped (All 23 films up to Skyfall)

Here's the thing. I've read through their site, Facebook, twitter, etc. They even have an APP. I've read their responses and have noticed that they're very well spoken and don't seem to outsource their customer service department - not that I can tell so far. When reading some of the complaints, though? Fuck, what a train wreck of epic proportions. Some of the people making these complaints should be sterilized from ever reproducing again. Seriously. Hey, so you ordered something during the Christmas rush and didn't get it by 25th. Welcome to the club, ya moron. Lots of people didn't get their shit when they were promised. It's CHRISTMAS!

Anyways, someone had said that they were a wholesaler in the vein of Groupon. That's actually what it does look like to me.

Re: James Bond 50 complete box set - $39 shipped (All 23 films up to Skyfall)

Ordered this several days ago and the only peep I have heard from them is the daily emails trying to sell me other shit. Any idea on if or when these sets might actually ship? Kind of sucks that I have already been charged and paid with paypal days ago with no indication on when the set will actually ship out.

The downside of using Paypal on most sites is they deduct funds immediately -- FWIW I used it as well.

From past purchasers off this site, odds are you may not get much notification until you receive whatever item will be sent out. I;m guessing with the Holiday weekend it's going to be even more unpredictable

It's the weekend and tomorrow is a postal holiday, so Tuesday at the earliest I would guess. Unless they ship UPS or Fedex. Their FAQ doesn't specify how that ship. Just that it can take 10-14 days to receive your item.

For the Paypal users, I would stay very aware of your window of opportunity to file a claim. I don't care what the site says- if I don't have my package by that drop-dead date, I will file a claim.
