Amazon.co.uk (Royal Mail) is consistently faster than Amazon.com (USPS) when shipping to Canada.

It's because we're still a part of the British empire.

Friend of mine in MA still hadn't received her copy yesterday so she emailed Amazon and they issued her a full refund. The BD turned up in her mailbox today. Free Battle Royale

I ordered on the 22nd and it shipped the next day. I was hoping to get it by this weekend but I highly doubt it.

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

Echoing doctorthodt's friend, this is how life goes. Directly after writing Amazon and requesting a replacement copy (which I know is impossible, in this case) or a refund, I order one copy from Arrow just in case.

Emails received today in this exact order, Amazon: responds to my query, Arrow: shipped out this morning, and Amazon: processes my refund...

Meanwhile...in my mailbox today...there is of course a not-so-mysterious package from Amazon.co.uk! It's a bit dinged up around the edges and has a noticeable scratch on the spine, but otherwise in pretty good shape -- suits me well for complaining!

I'm tempted to find out the number, but I think I'll wait for my Arrow shipment to see if it's in slightly better condition on the outside, and decide which one I want to keep...

i'm pretty sure a couple people have mentioned ordering a copy from amazon and arrow and receiving them both so you might want to start messaging them to see if you can buy the other copy.

you know, if someone were to offer me their extra at the $20 i originally paid, i wouldn't say no, but i won't pay the premium given the status of release.

Did you order from Amazon.co.uk? If so, don't give up hope...more and more of us are getting them each day!

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

Goddammit, still nothing!

At first it was fun and games, but now I'm getting pissed.
How the fuck do two identical items get shipped on the same day from the same place to the same city through the same service but arrive a month apart? That's some bullshit right there!
