Kind of annoying Zavvi doesn’t include tracking numbers.

Wow, I have no idea what the deal is, but it took 3 days flat to get mine. UPS just dropped it off.

At least two people got theirs hours ago but no posts about initial thoughts of the transfer?

I need to know what to look forward to, possibly, next year when a standard set gets released.

I’m definitely popping in the next weekend after I get. I know wishful thinking for tomorrow, but not too likely. But, the extended definitely in that weekend. I hope it’s glorious.

Haven't got my shipping notice yet from Amazon, although I did get a personal message from Jeff Bezos telling me to go fuck myself.

So far, these are clearly the best transfers ever. Everything looks natural, even the blacks look great and the blood looks way more natural red than we’ve seen on previous transfers. This was really worth the wait.

Well it only took 6 days, M-S. Not bad. However, it came in this...


as quickly as they came my hopes were dashed. Until I opened and happy to say it is pristine and I love this fucking thing!!!













And now itís sits rightfully in its place in legend...

Nice to hear the blood looks better. This year has been great with 4k catalog titles.

My inclination with any new disc purchase is to put it on a shelf and not watch it for six years. Given the price of this one, however, I may bump that up a bit.

And, I just got the set for free. I chatted online with .uk saying thanks for fast shipping but this is the picture of packaging, see above, and said this is a limited ce whatever and shouldn’t have happened. Wasn’t angry, certainly, since pristine. But could have been atrocious. But they should know and thought I’d get a $5.00 credit to gc or something. Nope.

My Zavvi ordered just showed up. One dinged corner, but it’s tolerable.

My Zavvi order came in a box pretty well protected with shrinkwrap. Did yours not?

When I placed the order, I was afraid Zavvi might try to send it in a padded envelope, as they have for other box sets I've ordered.
