Hey slop, did you ever ask your neighbor if he actually ordered this set?

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

sooooo...I got this email. I feel bad that Amazon had to repay for something that's not my fault but they felt that it was needed in that case considering the package...isn't somewhere here. So yay for money! Boo for Amazon taking a blow for me. Thanks, Amazon UK....you do too much to make me happy.

Dear Customer

Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk to bring this to our attention.

I am very sorry to hear that your order #202-7962948-9695536 did not arrive.

At this point, I can only assume that it was lost during delivery.

Therefore, I have requested a full refund to your payment card in the amount of 17.54 GBP. Refunds usually go through within 2 - 3 business days and we will send you confirmation when it is complete. You should see this credited to you on your next card statement. Completed refunds information can be viewed when you visit Your Account once you've received the confirmation e-mail from us.

In the Orders section, click on "Your Orders" and sign in with your e-mail address and password if requested. On the left side of the order you choose, select "View Order Details". Completed returns and refunds will appear at the bottom of the individual order's summary page.

If the package arrives afterwards and you do not wish to keep it, please refuse delivery of the parcel so it is returned to us by the carrier. If you have already taken delivery of the item we ask that you return it to us. (If the package arrives afterwards and you wish to keep it, let us know and we will be happy to recharge your payment card)

If the original package arrives afterwards, please keep the item with our compliments, as the cost of returning the package is likely to be overly expensive. You may know of a local charity who would benefit from the item.

I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused you.

Thank you for shopping at Amazon.co.uk.
I did find that to be funny though....wonder what kind of charity would totally like Battle Royale...

A children's hospital, obviously.

And yeah, that really sucks. Hopefully it's just temporarily lost somewhere and it will get rerouted back to you.

They emailed me on Jan 11th saying it shipped, and I got it on Jan 20th. 7 business days.

Preprinted email they send to everyone that does not get their orders.
I ordered in Dec. & Jan & got nothing @ all. My guess UK customs is stopping orders to US.
I also got credit back from Amazon UK & I plan to never order from them again!

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

Mine shipped from Arrow on Jan 10 and it still hasn't arrived. I'm going to give it until Feb 10 before I complain since I'm sure the weather is a major factor.

In the same boat (literally, I think). Shipped direct from Arrow Jan 11 and still waiting.

So how do explain the majority of people who did receive their order? If you really believe this, then your next statement is even more bizarre.

I'm not sure why you blame Amazon. They cannot control the weather or the postal service. They're good, but not that good.

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

My order from Arrow shipped today. So if I somehow get both I have an extra if someone needs one. I promise my shipping will not be disaster :lo:

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

I had not ordered BR ...but had ordered two movies that were shipped on Jan 4th, but I still have not received that shipment. I waited till the 25th and Amazon UK asked me to wait another week and THEN they would "look into" the situation...I sent a response back to their auto email and stated I would proceed to cancel the charges on my CC....they sent an email back within 24 hours letting me know they were reshipping both items. I've received one, but haven't rec'd the second item yet. Normally, Amazon UK takes 7-10 days to reach the midwest. I've always been pleased and impressed by their service (and the postal service too).

I wonder if there was a widespread issue with Amazon during a certain window of time?

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

Funny, now that a few of us seem to be dealing with delays from *Arrow* orders...

I was one of those whose Amazon order took many weeks to get here, and a week or so after the prescribed date, but it did arrive. It arrived, of course, late the same day that I had just gotten fed up and ordered one from Arrow just in case...

Perhaps purely out of a masochistic curiosity (but actually because a couple of other Blus were really good prices), I ordered another small shipment from Amazon UK during the last couple of weeks -- it arrived to me in the U.S. in a miraculous *5 days*! I surmise that *someone* must be paying attention to previous lost or long-delayed orders and at least attempting to make up for them...

Of course now, my copy from Arrow (shipped on the 14th) has not yet arrived, either...

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

My Battle Royal did show up from Amazon, but my Toy Story set never did. They refunded the cost of both movies and wanted me to send BR back. I'm holding onto it and just waiting for them to recharge me the BR set. It's strange they wanted me to ship BR back when I asked them for just a partial refund.

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

Holy shit! I got mine today!!! Only TWO MONTHS after it shipped...

The shipping box was pretty beat up, but the package itself was fine. I was hoping for something < 5000 since I pre-ordered it early, but I ended up with 8K something - not a big deal, especially since I pretty much go it for free. But still, two months...

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

Awesome news! Glad to hear you both finally got them. Pretty crazy when you think about it, that all of us received our sets at very inconsistent times. So does that only leave Larry C. who hasn't received his initial Amazon order?

Wow. Longest shipping time. Ever. I wonder where it was sitting for all that time? If only these things had GPS sensors.
