I just did a standard return this morning, and their system sends you a new one, and then I print a free UPS label to return the old one within 30days. You can contact them directly and complain, and they may ship you a new one by 1-2 day air, or they may offer a bonus gift card, or both(or neither). It just depends on what you may want(and what the CS rep is willing to give), and what is the best way to get it.

If my next one arrives damaged, I will contact them directly and raise a stink and make sure they send it properly and rush delivery me one. For now, I'll just read the damaged one, and wait until the new one arrives before I do the swap.


Oh cool for some reason I just figured they wouldn't send out another one until they had the other one in their hands will do this right now.

I just contacted ThinkGeek, and this was the reply I got:

"Hi Christopher,

Thank You for contacting ThinkGeek Customer Service! I hate to be the bearer of bad news but at this time it seems to be top secret on our end! Keep your eyes open! Maybe soon.

If there is anything else I can assist you with please let me know or if there is another issue you need help with you can include it in your reply. My cage is always open. It is my goal to provide excellent customer service.

Hope you are having a wonderful day!"

Thanks Again"

WTF! does this mean, oh well, I guess they may be selling them today, tomorrow, next week, or not at all. Also, I asked about the regular & limited edtion, so this reply could be in regards to one, the other, or neither. Thanks ThinkGeek, you have answered NOTHING! LOL

Which Warehouse did yours ship from? (Use your tacking #).

And which warehouse did everyone elses with damage come from?


My damaged one came out of South Carolina. Replacement is coming from Arizona. It's supposed to get here today, but on the tracking info it does say there was a delay, so it might not (arrival estimate is still today).

Just went on ebay and saw the prices these things go for. The market will probably be flooded though once the copies get shipped to the general public.

The whole LE thing is being handled horribly by publishers these days. They are either way too limited compared to the market that actually wants them or they are way overproduced and go into clearance.

Honestly, maybe publishers should do a 3 day rule on items that are supposed to be limited. You have 72 hours to order a single copy of a game, one copy per customer limit, and you will be guaranteed a copy. The item will be produced only to satisfy the people who ordered in the 72 hour time window and extra copies to take care of any customer issues.

I don't understand why this idea is such a hard concept to grasp. 24 hours or however long this was up for was way too short of a time. The only reason I got my order for the LE in was because I happened to stumble upon a thread on this site.

My regular edition from Amazon came wrapped together with my Ni No Kuni guide, and the box was HUGE, but because both guides where strapped to a bigger piece of cardboard backing, the edges didn't get dented(the backing board took the damage), but there is a small scratch on the face. This may have happened before shipping, but I can't really tell. I decided to get another one shipped, and if that one arrives screwed up, I'll do it again.

i have that same order coming and im hoping for no damage

Got my book in yesterday, and it looks like it's in absolute perfect condition.
Also our UPS guy is always very gentle with all our packages so that probably makes a big difference.

Wish I would have jumped on the LE when I had the chance though... :(

So my book shipped out last night and arrived today. Kind of weird since I only paid for standard shipping but hey I'm not complaining. As for damage the corners on my book are perfect. The only real problem is on the spine on the back which you can see below. It doesn't really bother me so I'm not going to ask for a replacement.

I'm from the uk! I have literally found this forum thread, just a few days ago (I had to wait a few days to make my first comment :|), I have been through hell and back to get a copy. But can confirm I was able to pick one up in forbidden planet in london a few hours ago. They got given 50 copies (as being the flagship store), the other fp's were only given at most 2. Very limited to one per person, I did want 2 tbh, one to display and one to put away, tried to explain that, weren't having any of it, but at least I got one.

I don't understand the two separate release dates going on with the LE.

It doesn't really look that bad. I wouldn't bother asking for a replacement, although I would probably leave packaging feedback or contact customer service in the hope that they eventually start packing their books correctly. If that was an LE though I would be pissed.

This suggestion works for those who can put the money out there months in advance. But made to order LEs will have to be pre-ordered months in advance AND it won't stop people from scamming to get multiple copies to resell. And knowing an item is only available for 72hours months in advance will guarantee that the resell price at release will be crazy high.

Personally, I would definitely ask for a replacement especially if I had to pay shipping.

Seems like the Delaware shipping center is the only one shipping these things properly. That's where mine came from, shrink wrapped to a larger piece of cardboard with no damage.
