New York City here. Still not arrived. I got my backup though. If I ever get my second copy, I will be glad to trade it for Watchmen Ultimate Cut blu-ray if anyone's interested.

I ordered a backup copy last night. Since Amazon was cool enough to already refund my shipping, I have no problem waiting until the end of next week until worrying seriously.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

Where did people order a back-up copy from? Amazon.co.uk says mine shipped, so they have to have shipped something, but I'm worried it's never going to come...

I ordered mine from hmv. It ended up running about $33 shipped. At that price, if/when I end up with both copies, it'll make a heck of a Christmas present.

Got my mail for the day, nothing. Battle Royale is officially overdue. Tomorrow, the alien Anthology will be overdue.

I did the same... or I just ordered my copy from HMV about five minutes ago.

I'm going into work later today, so I'll be able to check my mail before I leave the house. If my copy isn't here, Amazon.co.uk will have hell to pay the moment I walk into work.

I want a full detailed account on the walk to the mailbox. You know, if it's a particularly bright or cloudy day out or if a missionary approached you during the ten-foot walk.

just to be safe, I ordered one as well from HMV... 4+ weeks to arrive is unacceptable.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

You guys ordering from HMV know that there might be a wait from them as well? This is a Royal Mail issue, not an Amazon issue.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

Yup. The price was cheap enough and I have enough friends who'd love to get this set that it was worth a $33 insurance policy, especially with how prices are going for it online.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

I placed an order for something else on amazon.co.uk yesterday, and the delivery estimate is next week, which is normal for me.

Also, I still have not received my copy yet. It was due today. I am unhappy, and am considering an email to try to get my shipping cost back. But at this point I just want my dvds.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

nothing once again on the expected delivery date. Time to email them and let them know and to see what is going on.

If they issue me a refund what do I do if I get it sometime in the future after the refund?

I sent an e-mail to Amazon.co.uk and mentioned the number of people reporting this as not having arrived.

i guess send it back would be too obvious an answer.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

Alright folks, now for a good laugh....this is Amazon's reply to my query about where the hell my shit is.

"Hello Customer,

Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk

I am sorry for any misunderstanding caused.

I can confirm that your order #026-XXXXXX-XXXXX was sent via Royal Mail to the following address:

My Name
Address
Austin, TX
United States

I appreciate the time you have taken to bring this to our attention. Unfortunately there can sometimes be unforeseen delays and as this parcel was not sent via a trackable method, I would in this case ask that you kindly wait until January 13, 2011. This is the maximum time that you will be asked to wait, and your parcel may still be delivered before this date."

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

...Give me a break.

I'm not positive (I don't have the email in front of me), but I thought it had similar wording "This is the maximum time that you will be asked to wait..." on the email I got from them informing me my ETA of between 12/20 and 12/25 had changed to 1/5.

I was trying to be patient and just wait for today to roll around. Now that it has, I'm getting annoyed. I guess I'll be emailing Amazon UK also.

Funny thing is that I just ordered Being Human Season 2 a few days ago. I bet I'll get that first.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

Anyone know if a non-special edition of this film is scheduled to come out?

I, for one, have grown increasingly tired of super-"special" editions that come in out-sized packaging and contain pointless collectible "extras."

I just want the damned film on blu-ray.
