He posted the same thing on the bluray.com forums, but with a at the end.

He didn't actually get that email.

Rypro has one, but it's of the DVD limited edition. However, it was sent at the exact same time the Blu-rays were sent out.

There's posters on other forums (blu-ray.com) that have received their copies too.

We should just create a spreadsheet of everyone who ordered it, when the order was placed, when the order was shipped and when the order (actually) arrived.

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

I received a response from Amazon.co.uk just now.

I am sorry that you have not yet received your order #202-1428521-4805167.

I can confirm that your order was sent via Royal Mail to the following address:

[My Address]

The estimated delivery date given for this order was January 05, 2011.

I appreciate the time you have taken to bring this to our attention. The carrier has informed us that your package has been temporarily delayed during transit due to adverse weather conditions.

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

Amazon.co.uk takes full responsibility should your order not arrive by the date above, please contact us again on the above date by using the link below and we will assist you further
That's all I cared about hearing. I appreciate them giving me a response as I'm sure they've received a lot of complaints about this and other products because of the weather delays. I'm really not mad at them, but I just wanted someone to confirm that it had indeed be sent to put my mind at ease.

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

Is there a non-LE Blu-Ray version also? I thought I seen one on the arrow video site.

Yes, there will be a non-limited edition Blu-ray, but it is region-locked.

Are you serious? That's not a real e-mail. If it is, Amazon's customer service rep "Spencer James" needs to go back to school and learn how to conjugate verbs.

Oh, and I got my BR copy like two weeks ago. Am I the only one who has it?

Spoiler:




Haven't opened it yet, though.

Yeah, I forgot to put a wink at the end! I was being sarcastic and just making fun of Amazon.

I recieved mine on Dec. 21st and still got a shipping refund because of the delayed release. Posted pics on page 10.


The pre order started in October, right? Was there another site taking pre orders even earlier?

I love how the people on that forum who actually got theirs are rubbing it in by putting the production number in their signatures.

There still might be hope. I work from like 3pm-midnight daily and the mail comes at around 4, so I'm still working off yesterday's drop.

Ordered two when it was first made available, received both about two or three weeks ago. It is a shame that this has gone sour for some people, but is it certain that Amazon U.K. is solely to blame? I'd think both the U.K. and U.S. postal services could be behind the delay/backlog as well.

In all seriousness, I was once informed that that site was a premier home video review and discussion site, with a mature, warm and fuzzy forum community, etc. etc. Doesn't really sound any different from anywhere else.

I live up north (Round Rock), so we get the mail drop in the afternoon as well. So yes, there is a possibility today if you were looking at your mail from yesterday.

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

I emailed them last week, asking where the package was, and inquired about possibly receiving a refund for the shipping. The guy that responded to me assured me that the package would arrive by January 5 and that they would be unable to compensate me in any manner.

I emailed them again last night, and said that I had no package as of January 6. Today I got a response telling me they will refund the shipping in a few days. That's cool of them.
