Would have been nice to get one of the <5000 numbers but it's not a big deal. I live in Baltimore, MD by the way.
Wow, you got one of the ultra rare backwards sets.

I am so buying this next week if I can still get my mitts on a copy. Amazon.co.uk doesn't seem to have it anymore but play.com is apparently still carrying it. I wonder if the distributor will get more copies to Amazon though, considering the message they left on Facebook.

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

Seems like a ton of East Coasters are getting theirs, fantastic!

I opened my door today to find a box, but it was Amazon.com, the Alien Anthology, but it's damn alright, because that is one of the sweetest packaging for ANY home entertainment set I've ever seen. I think the only thing I can think of that tops it is my Godzilla box set. Maybe Abbott&Costello.

I hope when I come home in two weeks that I'll have a pretty BR box set for me to dig into.

Both. I ordered the Blu-ray. Thanks for the update.

You can order it again on Amazon.co.uk. I just checked. It's listed as temporarily out of stock though.

I'm fine with waiting.

Watch it, with my luck, both my copy from Scarecrow Video and Amazon are waiting for me when I get home from work.

There's no guarantee that they will get more copies in (they most likely won't). If you really want to get this version, you should probably order from a different source just to be safe.

Glad to hear the East Coasters are getting their deliveries. That means mine will probably show up in next few days.

For those of you who are getting it is it being place in the mailbox or front door?

Front door. Too big for a mailbox.

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

thankfully the mailperson actually places the mail inside or through the letterbox, UPS though, just throws the shit on the front porch (which ticks me off)

Nothing today, but I got my package from Thinkgeek to hold me over until then.

After seeing the reports in the thread, hopefully tomorrow...

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

Well my Panasonic Blu Ray won't play disc 3. But I went to the link on page 5 that apparently lists ways to make it work, found my Blu Ray in the system, it says there is some sort of code but clicking on it tells me nothing about how to do it.

Anyone know (and may want to PM it if necessary) a way to find the method? I've got a SA-BT100.

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

Got mine in as well in Austin (Round Rock). Also got in Dances with Wolves and Rob Roy. First time in a very long while I got anything before release day from Amazon.

Great packaging, but I HATE that prints stick on the digipaks so damn easily on Battle Royale.

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

I did not get mine today, so I sent an angry email directing Amazon to this thread and demanding a new disc with a lower number, because "I'm sure I pre-ordered before all of these idiots!"
