Perhaps they have received so many orders that they were unable to fill them all withing 1 to 3 weeks? I called 2 nights ago to request a replacement set due to the lobby cards being damaged and missing. The CSR I spoke with stated that the set was extremely popular and that it would ship within a week. Hope she is right.

There have been rumors that the set will only be produced until the end of the year. However, I don't know that it's been confirmed.

I'll say it again. Unless it has a number on it, never trust Universal when they say "Limited". Hell E.T. should be a clear sign that the whole "it's gone for good if you don't get it by ___" should clue you in. I'm positive that by black friday, there will be tons on the shelf.

i just got this email from amazon




Greetings from Amazon.com.

We have some news concerning your order for "Scarface Deluxe Gift Set -
Scarface (1983) & Scarface (1932)."

Universal Studios originally released this title on September 30, but
the
studio quickly ran out of stock. As they must manufacture more copies
to
meet the huge customer demand for this title, Universal has chosen to
re-release it at a later date.

At this time, we don't know exactly when new copies will be available,
although we expect them within the next several weeks. When Universal
has
announced the new official release date, we'll update our web site
immediately with that information.

You can find this title on our web site at the following URL:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000AMRJE/

We have left your order in place, and will ship this DVD set to you as
soon as it becomes available, but we will certainly understand if you
wish
to cancel the item from your order.

You may cancel any unshipped items yourself by clicking on "Your
Account"
at the top of our homepage.

Please accept our sincere apologies for this unprecedented situation.
We
appreciate your business and thank you for shopping at Amazon.com.

Sincerely,

Customer Service
Amazon.com

I guess that confirms that the set didn't have a limited print run.
