First print run was about 90,000. Since it was printed in the US, they could probably turn a reprint around 2-3 weeks.
Would imagine Prima/Random House does go back to press, but if they do not, this will become very difficult to find.



Interesting. Getting tough to find indeed.

where'd you get this number? I really hope there aren't any reprints 8-). Also has there ever been two collector's/lmited edition guides for a game?

There will most likely be a goty-type version of Skyrim with all the dlc later on but what about a guide? I know Borderlands had a normal guide then GOTY; same with RDR.

They also had a Limited Edition for the original FO3 release. I also checked on eBay and the non GOTY prices are way lower than the GOTY LE guide. But I don't know if they did a reprint on the original LE guide

I opened mine and used the code and ripped the map out. I'm on my second play through and this thing is absolutely amazing. I was just wondering "hey, where the hell can I get ebony ore? I really want to make some ebony armor" and in the index there was three different mentionings of ebony ore, and each one guided me to the stuff I needed.

If you're on the fence, don't worry about the money. Its not money in your pocket, just open it and enjoy it.

Ended up getting a free copy from Best Buy due to in-store pickup incompetence.

They sent an email stating that it was ready to pickup. When I got there, they did not have it available but the dude had already run the transaction through the register. First he offered me the regular version for the price of the CE. I said that wasn't good enough. Then he wrote on the receipt that it was not yet picked up and they would call me if they got any more in. That wasn't gonna fly but I had spent way too much time in the store already or I would have bitched to the manager.

Later that day I called bby.com customer service and told them about the in-store incompetence. The csr was very understanding and not only refunded me the charge but shipped me a copy for free.

Just got this at BestBuy.com for 33.99. I chose check local stores and one had it. You can add any game or DLC to save 15% off the guide.

And why do you feel like yours will be cancelled? I'd finally gotten an order in at the $26.xx price-point on 11/19/11, and after first getting an initial ship date of December-something...the next day mine also said that it'd be delivered on November 29th. I think we'll be aite.

Well my ship date was the 23rd and then it was pushed back

I'm afraid they oversold and mine was one of the ones that are pushed back while they try to find more

I hope not but I'm worried

Well guys, guess y'all were right: they ended up f***ing me as well: got the dreaded e-mail from them citing that they will have to push back my order as well. The estimated delivery date is now December 19th...the f***?! Fuckin' Amazon...:censored:

You guys are still talking about reprints? Where are all the smarty-pants that claimed Amazon already had stock from a reprint or two?

I got my order not too long ago from the 2nd time amazon got restocked of this item. I dont know why exactly why it is under review. It could be the packaging of the item, my copy has its edges got a bit messed up, it was just boxed with no extra padding on the side that avoids the book from moving around while in the box.

Also the way the book's pages was bonded to the spine of the Hard cover was not centered properly. The papers bottom is at the same level as the hard covers bottom side. So it has this huge allowance on the top side(nothing on the bottom) that always annoys the crap out of me whenever i open the book. Not like my Uncharted 3 CE guide where the pages are perfectly bonded on the center of the spine. Despite that im not planning to return the book.

Just thought i'd throw this into the mix, its not collectors guide but im sure some can cope with the 650 page standard guide for 11$ http://www.amazon.co..._cp_ob__title_1

If anyone is still looking for a CE check your best buys, there was a stack of about 7 or 8 at mine in some random video game isle, I think the wii section haha.

Just want to give a heads up that Walmart.com has the CE in stock at $39.96 + tax and shipping it you don't use pick up or site to store. I know it's not much of a deal but it's better then eBay prices.

Completely missed this Amazon deal due to being unsure if I was going to pick up Skyrim. I broke down and bought it and cannot put it down. Wish I could have gotten on this deal for the Collectors Edition game guide.

For those who have not been able to pick it up, Meijer is currently showing it in stock ($39.99) at http://www.meijer.co...1&cmpid=goobase. You can use the Promo Code SHIPSFREE for free ground shipping. I've never dealt with Meijer before, so I am not sure of their online stocking reliability.

I went ahead and ordered it, but hope to make it to a local Wal-Mart today that says it has limited stock. I certainly do not want to pay Ebay prices for this guide, but I want it sooooo bad :)

Does Best Buy's stock tracker show these in stock at your store? There is not a single store within 100 miles that shows them in stock for me. I have Reward Zone cards that I would love to use if they had them.

Sadly, I just had to have this guide. Picked it up nearly 2 weeks ago from Bestbuy, and it's still laying on the shelf unopened :( Hopefully I can find the time one day to actually play the game again and make use of the guide.

Thank you so much for the meijer link. I just ordered one since its sold out everywhere where I live. I hope you have a better luck at Wal Mart than I did, I went to one that had limited stock and left empty handed.

Thanks for the heads up on this. It shows temporarily out of stock on Amazon, but with a price like this I had to put an order in since I cannot find it anywhere around me, locally, and I couldn't pass this price up. Besides, I kind of stopped playing Skyrim until I do get the guide, so I can wait until Amazon ships mine before I start Skyrim up again...whenever that will be. However, I've got so many other newer games to play in the meantime, so I am good. ;)

Well Amazon delayed my guide again and now the page says this

Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)
We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

Yeah, I'm expecting the same result at Wal-Mart. The store is only about 10 miles from the in-laws which we are visiting today, so no huge deal.

There is also one at a few Gamestops not too far from where I live. I might take a trip if Wal-Mart does not pan out.
