You do know these orders aren't going to be fulfilled, right? And scalpers, like Hemi on the other page, would ruin any chance of that happening. But I'm sure he could sell you one for $140 next week.

Oh no, tin foil hat time guys! It's somehow not magically limited now that ThingGeek, you know, a major retailer that was listed as gonna be a retailer, just now put their preorder up for it. Dark Horse has truly fucked you all by making more than 4000 due to this late breaking story. ;)

You people, I swear, amaze me to no end.


OMG Think geek is letting me put 99 orders in at once! Major typo by Dark Horse when they're are literally an infinite amount!

There is almost 0 chance of getting one at this point unless they limited it to 1, and even then...

I wouldn't celebrate until you physically have this in your hands. A lot can go wrong between website inventory count glitches and shipping as people who ordered from other sites can attest.

Notice how the page says limited, but the actual cart just calls it hyrule hystoria. Wonder if they are accidentally listing stock of the regular.

But I still think demand for this is not as crazy as you think. If they have a few hundred, it should last a few hours at $80 shipped. Different than $48 or $35 shipped like before.

The most they could have received is a few hundred if the 4,000 printed is true. If someones not monitoring stock there's going to be a lot of disappointed people tomorrow. Why there allowing you to order more then 1 is another huge mistake. We'll have another Play Canada on our hands.

The only other high demand items I can remember ThinkGeek selling were the Portal replicas, and they seemed to have good inventory control on those without overselling. I'm not sure what to think at this point now that they're still available an hour later.

Thanks!!! There was no limit on the number I could add to my cart, but when I tried to checkout, it complained at the last step until I changed the quantity to 1. Not sure if others had that issue.

Ugh... I placed an order because I don't think TFAW will fulfill mine. But given that this has been up for nearly an hour now, I doubt I'll get one. I'm sure flippers have been buying them by the dozens, if not hundreds, since there's no quantity limit.

this might be an error of thinkgeek, not dark comic. I bought at thinkgeek , but not sure if it will go though.
Just checked their website, and it says limited too 4000 copies.

They must be monitoring it now. It allowed me and many others to buy 2.

Unbelievable, I ordered another regular edition for my brother so Amazon would ship both, the regular and the LE, together, and you will not believe this, they both arrived damaged! No protection whatsoever from Amazon. I am not kidding, they did not even use bubble wrap; this is ridiculous!!! After the guy from CS told me that they would arrive in perfect condition, well they didn't, and I am pissed because now I can't get a replacement!!! I hope you guys have more luck than I did. But yeah, as I already wrote, this is ridiculous; the box had not protection at all... u.u lame.

[FONT="][FONT=Verdana]I pay for prime and this is how they ship books to their prime customers? The books barely fit in the box... What did Amazon workers think before shipping them? "Oh! Look! They barely fit inside the box! It must mean that the books will be super protected!" and then another worker replying, "Oh yeah baby!"... Look by yourself, I took the time to take some pics. Besides all this, Amazon always allows me to leave package/delivery feedback, but they do not allow leaving feedback for either the SE or the LE. Why? Did they knew that a lot of people would complain?... this is pathetic.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]As you can see, both of them arrived in the same box, and they barely fit.[/FONT]

There's no space for bubble wrap or any other kind of protection... I would not mind receiving a bigger box... Amazon.

PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGES IF THEY ARE TOO SMALL FOR THE DAMAGES TO BE SEEN.

The Standard Edition is the worst! Just look. Again, please click the images to see the damage because I think this forum doesn't allow to upload big images.

The denting on the LE is bad but I think they all have some wear on their corners (showing white).

Damn, I've been refreshing ThinkGeek for the last week or two, and I just saw it was up, and before I could complete my order it was gone. Crap! They probably only had a few, oh well. Maybe next time.

Any time you get any item shipped, there is risk for damage. Hard to tell from the pics, but with the LE I think you are being picky.

While it could have been packed better, they can never guarantee perfect condition. That was stupid of the CS rep. Once it leaves their warehouse, it is out of their hands. Also, what if they got books from the production warehouses already damaged?
