Wow, that was corrected fast. I’m fully expecting the order to get cancelled.

I bought it through their eBay store. I wonder if they even can cancel purchases made through that site? They had sold like 2200 copies that way when I checked.

I scooped one up around 5pm yesterday. At the time they had sold over 1,000. By the time they fixed it they had sold almost 4,000.

That has to be an all-time screw up. They kept restocking their inventory without realizing that it was incorrectly priced by a factor of five?

The tragedy of tools to streamline/automate all this stuff! Screw up in one place, and it propagates everywhere.

Plus the Blu-ray and DVD sets were mispriced as well.

I don't know how accurate what I found in some light Googling is, but it looks like they can cancel, although they're still obligated to pay eBay their percentage as if the sales had gone through (many thousands of dollars), and their account status takes a ding. But they've sold enough and have a high enough ranking that it probably won't hurt them much.

I wonder if they can batch-cancel or if they have to go through each order individually?

Great deal if honored. I still feel like the price point itís been at for a while ($42.99) is pretty fair for three great movies on 4K.

I didn't realize this was a pre-order. I assumed they were clearing out stock.

Someone 'effed up big time.

Well, it hit discount pricing a little sooner than I expected. I got my order in. Hopefully they're filled.

This looks fantastic in 4K. I hope all 3 movies will look this great.

It's been reported that you guys will be getting the VHS editions of BTTF instead.

Amazon updated my order to delivery on the 22nd. Works out because that's a day off, so I can be there for delivery.

Re: Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy -- 4K UHD -- 10/20/20

Got an eBay message from GRUV about my order for this set:

Hello,
Thank you for your order of Back to the Future Trilogy on 4K! We are excited to get this item to you as fast as possible, but due to an overwhelming response to the re-release of this title, we are backordered for a brief moment. Our plan is to ship this item to you as soon as we are back in stock so you can enjoy this amazing trilogy.

If you have questions on your order you can reach us at [email protected].

In the meantime, we thank you for your order and your patience.
So, still a chance it doesn't get cancelled and refunded.

I got that message. I bet they sent it to most buyers and will use it to weasel out of shipping them. I just feel that we will get a message in a week or so saying that they are unable to get more copies and have to cancel. It is a bad movie script.

I'm just happy to get the set for a mere $10, but if they cancel the orders, I would not be surprised or upset.

My order still hasn't been cancelled yet. It's still listed as Pre-Order and queueing.

I hope that those of you who support the UHD format, will still buy this set at regular price should this pricing error fall through.

I will buy it at less than regular price. We have bought this title countless times.

GRUV is starting to get hit with a lot of negative feedback over the last month. I doubt we ever get this. Plus, they are still selling it despite being "back-ordered" on what they have already sold.

My GRUV $9.99 order (thru site) status has changed to SENT TO WAREHOUSE. Next status will be despatched as my previous order... I hope

Picked up the SteelBooks today. I'm a little disappointed that they're matte finish. Glossy SteelBooks look so much nicer.
