Re: Battle Royale LE ...did you get it yet?

Well, mine arrived yesterday (Eastern Massachusetts), but is completely destroyed. I couldn't have done more damage with a sledgehammer. The outer box is completely shredded and most of the insides are torn in pieces. I'm not sure what contents are gone completely, but I couldn't find the LE number on anything and I'm not sure how many postcards there are supposed to be. The comic book, poster, and essay book are there, but damaged. At least I had already been given a refund from Amazon (except that the exchange rate must have changed enough that I'm out 4 cents). The funny thing is that the actual discs look like they might still be playable, but I didn't have time last night to check.

Re: Battle Royale LE ...did you get it yet?

I sent an email to amazon and they pretty much told me tough titty and wait until at least the 26th before I bitch again.

I really hope I get it today but I wouldn't bet on it.

I know, but I took advantage of his lack of specificity to post pics of the set I got yesterday. As you can clearly tell, I am excited about getting it.

Yeah...I wish what I received looked like that.

I hope your discs play and you enjoy the films because basically that's why we all bought it.

Apparently, some copies can still be purchased directly from Arrow Video.

Man, I'm sorry your set arrived like that. I don't understand how that even happens. You should try ordering one from Arrow if there are any left.

Damn. How did that package manage to make it to your mailbox? Did it come in a plastic bag with a note from the post office saying "oops, we're sorry."?

Actually, that's not far off. No note, but it was wrapped up in some sort of clear wrap to hold it together. I have no idea at what point in the process the damage happened.

^ Make that 9,999. RIP

I've never seen a package arrive in a condition even remotely close to that before. I've had dings, tears, cracked cases and missing discs, but never all at once (except for the missing discs anyway).

Spoiled for content (think Fargo):
Spoiler:
Sadly, this is the first image that came to mind when I saw those pics. Best of luck getting another copy.

Damn bud sorry to see that. It looks like they left that outside the royal mail office during the actual bad weather.


Still nothing for me today.
