Over in the MST3Kinfo boards someone called and was told that if they hadn't gotten a shipping noticed by the end of next week to call again.

Just thought I would mention 2 things, first there's a thread over in DVD Talk about the Shout Factory picking up the MST3K catalog from Rhino, well worth reading, it was news to me.

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=523402

Also, secondly, the movie is coming back into print in may, it is up for preorder at Amazon.

Because it was moved from the main section into Bargains, where it does not belong, and my thread in Feedback has so far been ignored.

This is the 3rd time I've gotten that same email. I really don't need to be consistently informed of how I'm not getting my order yet.

Agreed. I have gotten 4 emails...I get it. However, my gut tells me that they might have gotten more orders than inventory.

I've also received several of those "delayed" e-mails.

Over on MST3Kinfo.com they have an update from a source at Rhino that says it will be shipping around the 28th.

They have authorized the charge again on my account, so I hope this means it is shipping now.

Well, I have the same backorder e-mail this morning. I have no clue why they have authorized my purchase again. Is this something Rhino does periodically while they await the DVD?

Got the same email

I don't think I've ever ordered directly from them.

Same thing happened to me. I thought for sure it was shipping this time.

I just checked over at the MST3Kinfo site and someone posted to their boards that Rhino still hasn't received the DVDs from their warehouse yet. Many people over there also had charges authorized, but then received the same backorder e-mail this morning. The person called Rhino c/s today, so I guess we still don't know when it will ship. To quote someone over there, "It sounds like Rhino needs to start calling their warehouse."

Damn, I hate Rhino! I ordered on 1/31 and in the intervening month, I canceled the credit card I used due to some other issues. So I created an "Express Checkout" account at Rhino with a different card. But Rhino canceled my order because of the initial card with just an e-mail message to re-order it, even though it is no longer available at their site. So I called them and they basically said "sorry, it's not available anymore". Their screwed-up processing of this messed me up entirely!
