You assholes who got the "wait until January 13th" e-mail are lucky, I got told to wait until January 15th in my response back from Amazon a few hours ago.

At least I got my shipping refunded.

Let me correct myself...I will hold off ordering anything from the UK until the shipping situation is corrected. Is that more to everyone's approval?

Just received this from HMV.

The suppliers have told us that this item is now discontinued, as the manufacturer is no longer producing it.

We're sorry if this causes any disappointment. We always try to keep our catalogue as up to date as possible, but it can take time for us to find about discontinued titles.

At this rate, it might be quicker to just fly down and pick up the bd.

That sucks mine was shipped on the 23rd with an estimate of Jan 18. At this point if I get it at all I'll be happy.

You might want to hold off until Blue Underground releases their version in April.

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

UPS just came and delivered a package from Amazon. I got excited, thought Battle Royale had finally arrived, but obviously it was something else.

I don't necessarily blame Amazon, but I shot them an email all the same to just see if they could give me another estimate. If I get a refund on shipping then that's great, but if not it's not the end of the world. It's just frustrating because I've received things from the UK that were sent out around the same time (and in one case even after) as Battle Royale.

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

I wonder if there's a way to put any pressure on the Royal Mail. If I bother them enough, will they dig through the mounds of backlogged mail to find the 3 other packages that I've been waiting for since December 1 and send them to me?

Anyone have any experience fighting a big government organization for something that's not really that important?

amazon gave me the new 13th deadline also. they also re-sent (already dispatched) a seperate order (which includes alien anthology) which had a estimated delivery date of dec 29. they said to keep the first one if it does indeed show up.

Yep.

I don't care, I just want it eventually.

If I don't get it by like March? Then I'll start to worry.

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

Update: I'm not at home, so I don't know if the mail has come yet. And, if it has come, I don't know if the package from Amazon.co.uk is in there.

I have not received yours and, correct me if I'm wrong, but I suspect you have probably not received mine.
