You can request a replacement... but in my experience, replacements are almost always packed the same way and therefore, end up with just as much damage (or worse).

I think as long as you haven't opened it you may be able to contact CS and ask for a return/exchange if you really want to pursue it. If nothing you may be able to get some credit or something if you complain enough, although I doubt the damage is too severe for that..

.com or .co.uk?




I think I "tried" to order 3 or 4 (i know, i know) and this is the e-mail I got yesterday:


Dear GBAstar,

Unfortunately, due to the limited nature of this release, we have been required to limit orders to two books per customer.

Your order has already been adjusted on our system and I can confirm that no payment has been taken at this stage; only two books will be allocated to you.

If you now needed to cancel, please go to Your Account online where you can adjust your order.

If you wished to hold, then you don't have to do anything further at this stage.

Kind Regards,

Mail Order Team

FSSS just means that they load up the truck up with all the "priority" stuff and if there's room it gets placed in. You make it sound like they delay your order for shits and grins. That's why they have such a huge delivery window. However, I used to (got prime) get all my FSSS orders within the first few days of that window, some times sooner.


I'm not sure, but sometimes it seems the FSSS items don't even hit the shipping soon stage for a few days. If it was as you said, I would think the shipping status would get updated as soon as it gets boxed and labeled. Unless those times just happened to be very busy and it took that long to box it after finishing higher priority orders.

And I didn't get a forbiddenplanet.com confirm email yet like some of you. Wonder if that means my order was later and might get cancelled after they go through and adjust all the gbastar multiple orders to see how many they can fulfill. :) If they do have to cancel any orders they took in, I would think they should limit it to 1 per customer before cancelling others.

Well my estimated delivery date for the regular edition was Wednesday, but I just checked the DC# and it says out for delivery, so I must have received it already in the mail. This was with Amazon Prime.

Yes, this book is larger than I thought it would be too. 12.25 in. tall and nearly 1 in. thick. The regular hardcover edition is beautiful. I can't wait to see my Limited Edition when it comes in. Hopefully next month. I wasn't expecting these today. I bought two as well. One to open and one to keep for a while. The srhink wrap does not look like it was done at the factory. Looks more like an afterthought by Amazon to help protect them. One of mine has a crappy shrink wrap job. Corners on my books are in great shape, but the one has krinkled corners, if not torn open, in the shrink wrap.

Does anyone else think Amazon would take the time to shrink wrap these if they did not come that way from the MFG?

I got mine from Nintendo World Store and both editions came shrink-wrapped right out of the box.

Amazon.de is still taking pre-orders for the CE. They're not getting these are they?

I placed an order TODAY and it didn't shoot me down or say it wasn't available. Fingers crossed.

Did they charge your card immediately? I know Amazon US does not.

None of Amazon's stores charge for pre-orders until it's ready to ship. I placed on as well but not getting my hopes up.

Is there any chance of these going on sale at a Barnes and Noble retail store? I'm not sure if I recall correctly but I thought people were pre-ordering in store.

I've seen some odd stuff with shipping. My friend ordered it and got his today but mine isn't due until tomorrow although mine does have the Art of Blizzard sharing the box so that could explain the delay. Just find it odd that people are getting it today that did 2-day shipping but an extra day won't kill me. :lol:

What has me worried now is where someone a few posts back reported the book with a bit of damage and my friend said his had "minor bends" but he wasn't picky enough to talk to Amazon about it. I'm worried for the LEs that they could get damaged and that could hurt the collectibility of them (first time I've bought something like this to keep, hope that's right). Hopefully Amazon will package these well (yeah right, standard book box with room to move I bet)
