Sounds like somehow Deep Discount got hold of 'em.

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

Comparing them to Deep Discount is more than a little unfair. There were weather issues that screwed up everybody's shipments on top of the fact that it had to cross a freaking ocean. It's been established that these issues have been cleared up in subsequent orders from people and it's understandable that some packages would still be coming in.

I'm not saying that it isn't frustrating, but there's a big difference between this situation and a company who advertises product as being in stock on the site and in your cart, but sending you a backorder e-mail a minute after you submit your order with no ETA for delivery. To even suggest such a thing is ludicrous.

Still haven't gotten mine yet. It shipped out on the 20th of Dec.

It sucks too cause it's shipping to my girlfriend's house, so it makes it even more nerve wracking cause I have to call her every day to see if it showed up.

It was a joke. Not to mention, I wasn't even comparing them to Deep Discount; I was jokingly saying that somehow they had been shipped to Deep Discount, who in turn held onto them fo a long time before sending them out because they're used to delaying orders.

Clearly you missed that I was joking. Guess I wasn't clear enough in my original post.

And for what it's worth, I never blamed Amazon.co.uk; I knew it was due to Royal Mail, the distance, and the weather.

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...
Will you finally start talking again to your friend down the street? I know this whole thing has strained the bonds of your relationship.

Sure feels like it..... But now it looks like others have got it so now I will have maybe two copies. I now have renewed hope that it might be there today when I get home. So chances are I'll be let down

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

There is still hope people. I had ordered this and the Metropolis Steelbook from Amazon on 12/11 and hadn't received it yet so Amazon graciously refunded me my money on both orders. Lo and behold, they both showed up in my mailbox today. It did take 6 weeks and now I have another order from Arrow coming, but I am bloody ecstatic at the moment. Now I am shooting an email off to Amazon to see if they want to re-charge me for this order, it's great to get it for free, but I can't fault them for this.

Patience everyone, hope is not lost.

Was that your Amazon order or your Arrow order?
