I waited too long to purchase this. Oh well. I'm not going to invest $50 in this when I can get most if not all of the extras with the 3-Disc standalone release coming out soon.

OMG, I'm so sorry. That looks like a crime scene. Hopefully you can get some custom art and at least save the discs.

I'd e-mail those photos to Arrow and see if you can get some sympathy from them and maybe some replacement packaging.

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

BSTNFAN, those are some of the worst pictures of mail damage I've seen! Like most of us, I waited about 34 days for mine to show, and to have it arrive damaged would have been very disappointing, so I can imagine the tedium you must feel.

I too suggest contacting Arrow to see if they can help. They have excellent customer service.

I've seen damage like that before - I'm pretty sure it was run over by a fork-lift.

When when I saw you had a new post I got excited that you might have got it. I'll know in about 4 hrs if its there or not. If not its 2 days late.

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

You know what, I would contact Arrow about that, I know Amazon can't help you, and I'm not sure Arrow can do much better, but it's worth a shot.

Meanwhile, mine came yesterday. Shipped Dec 14th, arrived January 19th. There is still good in this world.

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

Thanks everyone for the sympathies and kind words over my loss . I did send Arrow an e-mail with a link to the pictures today. I didn't ask for anything and don't expect any special consideration as this is in no way their fault (and I did get a refund from Amazon). I thought they might get a kick out of seeing the carnage and would like to know that the set is just a little bit rarer. Only 9,999 left!

Its funny, I was thinking last night that if you contact Arrow, maybe they'd find a way to send you one of the regular sets they've got coming up, only put inside (if they have any available) the region free discs.

Dude, he got a number he can make video game/skateboard references on. That's a double win.

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

After deciding to order a 2nd copy from Arrow when I got home from running errands i was surprised to find my copy in my mailbox when I got home. It's an awesome looking set and I can't wait to start digging into the set when the kids go to bed tonight. Got #1276/10000.
