Amazon - Free copy of Avengers if you ordered the briefcase set

Check your email people! Got this when I woke up this morning.

"Your Recent Order of "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One-Avengers Assembled Collection" + Free "Marvel's The Avengers (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD)""


Dear Amazon.com Customer,

We're writing to let you know that the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One-Avengers Assembled Collection will not be released by Marvel as originally expected. Instead, Marvel is planning to offer a similar collection in new packaging. The new collection will include the original titles offered with the first version of the item, and is expected to be available in the spring of 2013. To make this easy for you, we updated your order for the original collection and will ship the new collection when it becomes available. The price of the new collection will be the same as the original collection.

To show our appreciation for your understanding, we are providing you with a promo code to receive a free copy of Marvel's The Avengers (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging). To be eligible, you must have placed your order between June 1, 2012 and August 28, 2012. Any cancelled orders are not eligible to receive the free copy. Codes must be redeemed by October 15, 2012.

Here is your code: XXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX.

Learn more on how to redeem your code here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000834061

We know this delay is disappointing, and we're sorry for any inconvenience this causes. If you prefer to cancel the item from your order, visit Your Account (http://www.amazon.com/your-account) and click the "Your Orders" button. As long as your order hasn't shipped yet, you can cancel an individual item or the whole order from there.

Visit our Help pages for more information on canceling orders: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...?nodeId=595034

We hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,
Customer Service Department
Amazon.com

Apparently, Marvel didn't get permission to replicate the case. Which means a shitty plastic piece of junk (I mean worse than the original plastic piece of junk) is awaiting those who ordered this set (I'm assuming Marvel and Buena Vista will be recruiting a Chinese cheap-ass lowest-bidder to fill the need). Just buy a goddamn briefcase from Rimowa GmbH and throw the discs in there, would be my advice. Get your free movie and RUN like hell, would be my second piece of advice.

When this set went up for preorder, I had really wondered who that narrow target audience of folks were who liked these Marvel superhero flicks enough to want the fancy, expensive Collector's set, but not enough to own most or all of the previous movies on Blu Ray already.

I tried using the code today, but it kept discounting $21.96 from the discount and using the $3 credit I got from Titanic to cover the rest. I don't want to lose that $3 credit, I wonder if I go through with the order and email them they'll give me my $3 back.

"raises hand"

I never got around to buying any of them even though I liked them. So I figured what the hell!

Also, huge Whedon fan.

Me.

I only own The Incredible Hulk on BD. The others always cost way too much on BD for me. I never bit on a Cap or Thor when they went on sale but their regular price is too much in comparison to what it offers (the non 3D, I mean) in features.

I know I've said it a few times..but...they'd better add in those IM special features in the new set.

I owned all of them already but saw that if I sold them all, I'd come out ahead by getting this set. What helped me was that Thor was still sealed, I had the Iron Man mask case from Target and the green case for Hulk. Selling Hulk went a long way towards making the difference.

Are those worth something? I have the Iron Man mask and green Hulk case too. I actually want to get rid of Iron Man because the larger case is kind of annoying now. Heh.

Wish I hadn't cancelled my order Still a decent move on Amazon's part considering the delay was not their fault.

I looked on ebay and didn't see anything about the green case unless I overlooked something. I have that and wouldn't care if I sold it or not. I planned on selling it anyway once the bid set came out.

Gonna keep the Iron Man head case though. It looked good with my Batman head case.

I got $20 for Iron Man and $32 for Hulk. People really seem to be interested in the green Hulk case. Iron Man had less of a demand but I'm satisfied with what I sold it for.

Did your Hulk have the lenticular slip w/ the green case or just the green case?

Hulk looks sexy in a slip.

I preorder the set, and already owned the movies except Thor and Captain America. The cube just looked so cool, and the bonus disc was the selling point for me. I planned to sell my Marvel blu-rays to offset the cost too.

Now that I see Target has the same bonus disc, I may cancel. It's irritating that Thor and Captain America never go down in price, not even on used sites like gohastings.

If you go to the Taget online ad and hover over the image of the 3D version of Avengers.. the popup shows it as $19.99... this is the 3D version with the bonus disc..
