Anybody else still waiting for Mythos from Amazon?

In early December, when Amazon had their $8.99 bargain/error prices on some expensive titles, I placed an order for Duel, Power of Myth, Dinner For Five, and Mythos.

Amazon quickly changed the prices, but my order was in, and the first three DVDs arrived in good time. Mythos- the most expensive of the bunch (it's $60 at DDD)- was out of stock, though many members here posted that they received their copies for the $8.99 price.

My amazon page still lists Mythos as "not yet shipped" with a delivery estimate of Dec. 24 - Feb. 9. I was just wondering if anyone else is still waiting for copies of this, or if you've had them cancelled, etc. Or if anyone has an idea of whether I can expect this or not (I know amazon can be a bit sketchy). Thanks.

I called Amazon last week about it...they bumped me up to this Wednesday...then, I again got pushed back, and I called again and the guy told me they have over 1000 on backorder. I asked why they were opening it to orders again then, and he upgraded me to next day shipping and told me i was prioritized for shipment on wednesday. I hope it sticks this time...

I called them and told them I wanted the "rbf1138 special treatment" and the CSR knew exactly what I was talking about, and gave the "rbf..special".

J/K. Still waiting on Mythos, however.

Lol, Slingshot. Anyway, it's now the 4th, and guess what? Yeah, they pushed it back. I called and asked them why it's being sold and shown to ship in 4-5 days if there is such a huge backorder already. What Amazon is doing is absolutely wrong. This dvd should not be listed as shipping at all, let alone in the 1-2 months it now currently states.

It's the second time they've asked for my "approval" in pushing back the order/delivery.

I'm still patient and not pissed off about it.

Maybe it's just a battle of wills -- who can wait the longest before giving up.

I'll keep on "approving" the delay for as long as I desire.

Still waiting. I've watched the price back and forth from 79.99 to 89.99 and shipping time from 1-2 months to 4-6 days and now to 6-11 days. I wonder if it is ever going to ship.

I too have watched the continuing price/date fluctuations. I have a feeling that any new orders at the higher prices are taking precedent over any of ours. My ship date says March 7th, o I guess I'll find out next week if I'm ever going to get it.

I've had to approve them changing the ship date several times, today I got an email that my order for Mythos was canceled.

I'm waiting for this also.

But it looks maybe someone is going through the orders and cancelling the mispriced ones?

I have received several emails so far from amazon requesting "approval" for the delay as well. I continue to wait.
I negelected to "approve" within a timely fashion for CHO & my order was cancelled. I emailed amazon about this - and was invited to order again at the nonsale price. I protested and they sent me a 5 dollar digital coupon - i told them to pound sand up their ass. and still i wait for mythos.
