For those of you who show your set has shipped via UPS and the link or tracking dosen't work, try putting the tracking number in the FedEx website. Mine says it shipped UPS 2nd Day Air but the tracking says no info found. I tried the number on FedEx's site and it worked. Mine will be here tomorrow.

A easy way to tell if it's UPS is if it begins with 1Z. I don't think I've ever seen a UPS tracking number that begun with anything else.

Thanks! They did that to me and I was wondering why my status wasn't showing up yet.

I'm scared mine is going to come damaged. That seems to be the going trend lately... My Get Smart set came with smashed corners. They were nice enough to send a replacement slipcase, but it didn't arrive in much better condition than the first one... And this set just has way too many places where things can go wrong... outer box, 5 steelbooks, booklets, 25 discs...

I'm too anal to ever buy this stuff...

I didn't do too bad. The only minor issue was a couple of slightly smashed areas on the top, but nothing THAT bad. I'll probably even manage to find it acceptable. But, everything inside was perfect (shockingly).

Got mine in the mail today, and couldn't be happier with it, worth every penny. The steelbooks are a nice touch, the episode summary guide, the replica firehouse, just an amazing set altogether for any Ghostbuster fan.

Dvd set of the year for me, been waiting for this ever since I started buying dvds.

By the way, the set looks nice sitting next to my Invader ZIM house. The Ghostbusters and Zim are now neighbors.

Got the package. It looks great, but when I cchecked my bill after seeing the installments were a bit higher, apparently they charged me for shipping after they sent out this...

"We know this will come as a disappointment to many, so we have decided to provide all of our pre-order customers with FREE FedEx Express shipping. Our standard shipping time is 2 weeks, so you will still get your set in the same timeframe (probably sooner)!"

This has just been a comedy of errors. I'm not sure whether to just let this go and be done with. This TimeLife pre-order stuff has been a pain in the rear.

Wasn't too happy with the packing. For the amount of money, a box w/ more padding wouldnt have hurt anyone. I got a nice crushed corner because of that, which I have no choice but to deal with. With all that said, the set looks really nice and very well detailed. Not cheap or flimsy at all.

You probably don't have to deal with it. I had a pretty crushed corner when I ordered the Get Smart set from them. I filled out their customer care form asking for a replacement and they sent me another outer box. That one came with a slightly less crushed corner.

I had a couple of slightly crushed corners and a "dent" in the top with this set - still looks better than either Get Smart box I got, but, still, I asked 'em if they'd send me another "top" part to the box anyway. They were good about it before, so I'm expecting they will be again...

I got mine today and my 20th Anniversary MST3K set. MST3K is a cheap piece of crap compared to this.

Quality is pretty good, better then the early DVDS that were released with only a few episodes on a disc. I only watched the first episode and it looked pretty good, nice colors, pretty sharp. Some noise but other then that pretty good.
