Yes, I guess there is always a chance that something could get damaged in the mail; the way Amazon packed these, it's almost guaranteed.

Package a book like this however, and you have virtually nothing to worry about.


There is a chance it could have already been damaged before the retailer received it to ship out though.

Honestly, with the way some mail hubs handle packages, I'm surprised it isn't more common. Especially with how lazy people are these days. Just toss a package instead of handling it carefully.

My order is still not processing. I am really hoping that they were managing the stock properly and didn't oversell!


When did you order? I ordered a minute or two after it was posted, and mine is still New as well.

I ordered mine late and it is processing.

I have no problem with flippers, but I'd laugh at all the butthurt people who cry injustice of they cancel all orders of more than 1 or 2.

8:12 EST. If yours is also still at new, I'm guessing that we all still have a pretty good chance.

I got mine replacement regular edition as well and also in perfect shape. I though it was packed the same way but upon closer inspection, the box they used was slightly stronger and slightly bigger, but there was still no corner/edge protection. I guess they probably got a lot of complaints about how they shipped it the first time.

My LE from TFAW is still showing nothing.:-(


Yeah, this time around the box was a stronger cardboard and there were airbags inside. Well I wish you the best of luck with the LE, unfortunately I was too late to place an order anywhere.

My Regular Edition/Ni No Kuni guide, and my Limited Edition both shipped(from Amazon)! Both are coming from Fernley, NV. Both are expected to be here tomorrow!

Of course Sly Cooper 4 comes out tomorrow. Gonna grab that on the way home from work and then swing home, hopefully to some undamaged books :D

Just got my TFAW shipping confirmation! Now, anyone ever ordered from them before? How do they usually pack their items?

Yes! Mine shipped too! Finally...

Also, under "Shipment History" on my account, it says that it was shipped out on the 2nd (the CS person I talked to was right after all). There's ton tracking number so far.

There is a chance it could have already been damaged before the retailer received it to ship out though.

I understand that there is always a chance that it could be damaged, before shipment or otherwise. It just really bothers me that Amazon seems to have put no thought whatsoever into packaging these. Like I said, it's pretty much guaranteeing that the item will be damaged in some way, shipping it like that (at very least there is a higher chance of it being damaged than not).

I would love Amazon to have a shipping option for collectors items, or books or something.

What are people doing it get it from B&N? Calling stores and asking them to order a copy of the LE?

False alarm, it seems; I got a different Amazon package today, and the LE is sitting at my local post office (it probably arrived shortly after my mail carrier left to make deliveries). One more day... :pray:

I called local stores (only certain stores have them in-stock). You have to make the full purchase and shipping is free or you can do a store pick-up.

YMMV, though. I just checked my UPS from B&N and it is on it's way home! Let's pray that the shipping is better than this whole Amazon story...

Mine came in today with no damage in one of the book mailers. Most stuff I buy from Amazon comes in one of these now which is pretty nice. I'm sure someone has mentioned it already but whoever decided to make the publisher name on a black background on the spine is an idiot. At least make it the same color so it doesn't stand out so bad. I'm probably one of the least picky collectors you will ever see but for some reason this just pisses me off.

What warehouse did yours come from? Mines is shipping from PA


"Bethlehem PA US Shipment received by carrier"

Did you get yours already? Let us know if your book arrived like mine :/ Still I can't believe it, not even cardboard, bubble wrap, or anything else to protect the edges... ugh u.u

By the way, I contacted customer service and they told me that I could not get a replacement because those books are not fulfilled by Amazon (whatever that means). Then he said that I could return it and buy one from another seller, yes, he said that, to buy a $300 one, and I asked, Who will pay? Amazon? or you are telling me to buy it myself? Then I don't remember what he replied but the point is that he did not offer me a partial refund or anything else. He just told me to return it and they would refund my money. Well, I am not sure if returning it yet... probably I won't.
Also, the edge located on the right top corner of the book is damaged as well, I tried taking a pic but the camera did not focus and the plastic gives a weird reflection, so that damage is only visible with the eyes.

I would contact another representative and show the pictures, then state your request (i.e. you're S.O.L; it's not feasible to return the limited edition; exchange the standard edition).

Glad to see you guys and gals are getting your copies a little early. Those getting dinged copies, yeah I can understand your frustration, but the self-entitlement in this thread is fucking ridiculous. Be happy that you got in on this to begin with. With only 4,000 copies available, I'm sure someone would love to buy that dinged corner copy you have. ;)

Besides, when you order from the internet you're gambling like a mofo. Things don't magically appear at your doorstep in 100% tip-top physical condition. If you want that, you'll have to go find one in the wild... but good luck with that. Like I said, be happy you even got one. :)

"Entitlement"? Paying the price for a product that SHOULD be in great condition is entitled?

Yeah, paying full price for something and expecting it to arrive undamaged is total self-entitlement. This isn't happening due to freak accidents; it's happening because they are being packaged incorrectly.

Off an out, ya jack ass.

I think he mainly just meant all this complaining over little dings is hard to hear for those who haven't been able to get one in any condition yet for a decent price. Understandable.

A ton of the books on the shelf at barnes and noble are dinged up or have bent corners and they won't charge you less for them. We are just treating this as a collectible and amazon treats it as a book (which it is for all they care).
