I just got off the phone with someone at dvdempire and they said the the Apes boxset is delayed from Fox. She said they did not get the first batch made and they did not know when they will get more. She said to check back next week

Express.com has 2,595 sets in-stock (or something like that number) I ordered from Buy.com and hopefully it will be here this Saturday before any shipping email along with Shane. Buy.com actually does pre-orders pretty good, I will admit.

No delay that I have heard of yet....if anything it sounds like DVDEMPIRE took on too many preorders without having enough copies on hand!!!!

I have not heard of any delay, and actually saw several copies of the set (on the shelves before the release date)at a local Best Buy on Wednesday.

Good Morning:
There seems to be a misunderstanding. We are NOT out of the boxed sets...how do I know, I spent the morning in the warehouse boxing some orders. Friday was a big day for us...for new releases in general...and as such, I am confident that the orders went out.

Where the confusion is, POTA the first movie comes as a single...as such Ingram Micro failed to ship several vendors the single of POTA and this is where the delay in shipping is coming.

Rest assured....the singles are to be in today late or first thing tomorrow.

I apologize for the confusion and misunderstanding.
