Re: Alien Anthology - Oct. 26th

They haven't sent mine yet and it doesn't say shipping soon. They have been messing up all of my prime release date orders. They keep combining items with the same release date and then shipping them late.

True...

If you want it in January...

Maybe.

Crossing my fingers for a X-Mas deal...

I haven't heard anything yet from Fox regarding shipping and I got the "exclusive Comic-Con" egg packaging when I was AT Comic-Con. Only thing I've received is my order confirmation. I did write to them yesterday to get some sort of status.

One would think those of us who bought it at Comic-Con (before I found out you could get it online too) would be the first to actually receive it. But, we're talking about Fox....

I've been a Prime member since they started. And since the beginning of their release day delivery guarantee, I've only had one other instance of getting a movie a day early. I'm very glad that this set happens to be the 2nd time. If they shipped everything from Balitmore, I'd get every release on Monday, but most of my stuff comes from Delaware, which always arrives on Tuesday.

Same here...usually get new releases on release day with Prime; had only one prior early delivery. I can still remember what it was...DVD special edition of Never Say Never Again lol.

like the poster below you said yeah it might be as part of a black friday event, but There is no way it will be under 70 for more than a few hours within a month.

No this will be like the other similar fox sets release in the october-November time frame over the last 2 years. Planet of the Apes and Mel Brooks Collection. They are essentially the same msrp and didnt really start dipping deeper in price for 6months to almost a year after release

If you want it under 70 right away, your bestbet is to just import the uk edition which has been confirmed as being region abc.
But if for somereason the us release does drop much lower within a month you could always return the first set and just reorder it at the new lower price.

DD is currently running a 20% off on select titles with a "FALLSALE" coupon code. This might take the place of their traditional 25% off November sale.

I know. That's why I specified 'if'. They're also creating a membership plan that may take the place of the 25% off sale as well.

Re: Alien Anthology - Oct. 26th

My prime order--placed in July--still says items not yet shipped. Is this the case for anyone else?

I wouldn't become a member of any of their shit. They have become far more unreliable than even Columbia House and other shittily run online vendors.

I checked the FAQ on their site, it says you'll receive tracking information when it ships from their warehouse. I was confused too since I got "shipping confirmation", but the tracking link on their site errors.

Here are some more pics of the box set. Looks pretty damn cool, but I'm still waiting for a price drop:

Not the same title, but I pre-ordered tomorrow's Maniac with Prime, and it still hasn't shipped.

From the comments, here are some pictures of the UK edition: http://forum.blu-ray.com/3906358-post555.html

An in-between would've been perfect, IMO: nice hardbound book, and then an accordion piece for the discs. Still, I'm sticking with the US edition. Maybe if I'd seen these pictures before, I'd have felt differently, but I want this tomorrow.

Damn you accordion packaging!

I might have to jump on the UK set because of the price. Are all the extras/features the same between the UK and US releases?

Re: Alien Anthology - Oct. 26th

my amazon order (with BTTF) is listed as "shipping soon". i received an email this morning saying my delivery was going to be delayed, but no delivery date was given. my guess is that it will go out tonight and i will have it by thursday.
