Amazon shipped my Gladiator yesterday (never got an email either) but not the BoTRK:LE.

I just am trying to find out if it is an amazon problem or a release problem.

samgoody.com shipped my Kwai:LE yesterday, so they got some. But in other threads in the DVD Bargains forum, people have reported not seeing any Kwai's at Best Buy and elsewhere, so it sounds like Columbia just didn't make enough.

FYI, I was checking at local Borders and Tower Records stores, and neither had received their copies of the LE. I settled for the Standard Edition at Tower (19.99) but it appears some stores are awaiting shipments. Not clear if its just holiday shipment delays, or greater than anticipated demand, but since places have the Std Edition, one might be safe in assuming unanticipated demand = temp shortage.

I called two Borders today. Same story. They still have the LE listed for $24.99 and it might be on sale when it eventually comes in. Since I have some Borders credit I want to use up I will wait for them to get it.

Same here...my copy is still missing. I just cancelled and will just wait until I can use my GC from Borders on this one.

I hope they get it in soon. I was hoping to get this for my dad.

I'm happy to report that I got mine yesterday.
I cancelled my order last Sunday and placed an order with Checkout.com for about 7 bucks less and got it yesterday.
