DEAD Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen - Legendary Monsters $12.33 + $2.98 shipping

update: order canceled. Looks like it was just a price mistake. Sorry everyone.

Link

This is the set with Jason and the Argonauts / The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad / The Golden Voyage of Sinbad / Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger / The 3 Worlds of Gulliver, being listed by an Amazon seller named "SuperMart". If you don't see the $12.33 price front and center, look over to the right where it say "More Buying Choices: 35 used and new from..." and click on that link. Find Supermart for $12.33. If you don't see it, then they've sold out.

And it wouldn't surprise me if it sells out. Lots of places selling this set for >$40.

Also wondered if it was a mistake. Who knows. Since this set is now out on Blu-ray, maybe that has opened the door for a clearance sale on the standard resolution DVD set (well, it sounded good to me, anyway). I picked up the companion set, Legendary Science Fiction, for around $20 on a short-lived Barnes & Noble sale last October.

This seller doesn't have the best feedback. Wouldn't surprise me if they cancel them out if it is a mistake. there is only 19 copies left and going fast so it may be worth a try.

How can you tell how many copies the seller has on Amazon? I've never been able to figure that out.

You add it to your cart and then put in an arbitrary number like 40 as you update it. Then it will tell you how many are available.

Definitely worth a try, in view of Amazon's air-tight customer service on Marketplace sales. Worst that can happen is that your order gets canceled.

With a company this bad they not be aware its a misprice. Unless they really did get a special purchase on it.

Probably is a special purchase. Remember Oldies.com had a similar deal on another RH box a few months back.

I still think its a misprice. It would take awhile for an operation with thousands of listings to figure it out. They resemble more a dropshipper to me.

Thanks, OP. I gave it a shot as well. If it is a mistake, Amazon won't let us get screwed. Worst case scenario is we get all our money back...

I was kicking myself for not ordering the BD set of 4 Harryhausen films DD had for $40. This price is a no brainer, but it only has one of the films from the BD set...

This company is seemingly have a bunch of misprices. Slickdeals found medium seasons 1-5 for 11.21 and the wire season 4 for 3.96 and 30 rock 1-3 for 17.72. And a bunch of others. How would they be able to give 5 seasons of medium for that?
I doublt they will honor any of it.

was going to get the 3 sinbad movies for $15 offered by amazon last October but this is a better deal of course. I hope it does go through, maybe there's lots of old overstock of this set.

Can we all leave negative feedback if they are all cancelled?

I got the cancellation email, but my order wasn't "cancelled." It was DELETED! My account shows no sign whatsoever that the order ever existed...

Wonder if Amazon got hacked & there's some big rear covering going on?

Hardly earth-shaking, but Amazon reduced the price on this Harryhausen collection to $32.39 today (from the usual $44+).

EDIT---even that didn't last, back up to $44 now, just an hour or two later.
