Shawshank LE OOP/Recalled?

The Canada pull notwithstanding, maybe the LE has been discontinued/recalled because Amazon is not just out of stock but as a special order item.

I had bought a copy and received it today but since the first disc came loose from the spindle I placed an order for a replacement and instead I got an email with a $10 gift code and an apology that the title couldn't be re-ordered at this time...

I can swap this disc out somewhere else if need be with the regular version but this seems Very fishy...

Might want to grab this set while you can- could be a rare collectible! (odds of this are like really low but until we know whats going on over there...)

I think Warner mis-judged how popular the LE would be and so they're rushing to fufill the orders.

That could be a reasonable possibility but when Scarface ran out Amazon didnt say "unavailable from supplier" virtually overnight, they changed availability to 4-6 weeks or something like that. I mean, they're basically saying if at all it will take b/w 1 to 2 months or more to get any more in by saying "special order" and Scarface didnt even dry up that quickly...

Amazon still has a temp charge on my debit card from Thursday of last week, until they say otherwise I'm going to just stay optimistic

It's cancelled in Canada, because Warner doesn't hold the rights on books.

I think the LE is a ripoff when I can get the regular 2 disc for $15.99. Who wants to spend $35.99 to get a soundtrack and a book? It should have been $24.99.

It was possible to get for under $24 if you were able to use the $20 Amazon coupon posted in the bargain forum a week ago.

Yeah. Saw it at Target too. It didn't make sense to pay $19 more for a book and a OST CD. I am hoping for a price drop later.

Ditto. This is my favorite movie ever, but I could care less about buying into this gimmik, for a book and a C.D. Come up with something more creative which adds value to the movie itself, then will talk LE.

my pre-order got canned also. worse thing was passing up the b&m first week sale prices because i had it pre-ordered, only to have it severely delayed until finally cancelled. i'm pissed as hell and won't be doing pre-orders on LE items with them again.

Also had my Amazon order cancelled. I'll probably go with the 2 disc edition when CH has it for an enrollment.

It appears Best Buy still has the Limited Edition available.
