Does anyone know if the guide is helpful? And what the benefit is by getting this version? Collector's edition seems to be on sale.

It's a gorgeous guide that also has an art section. Past that, any info inside could just as easily be obtained online--as is always the case.

On another note, I really want my Japanese LE to get here!! It shipped a few days ago, but I'm pretty sure it's still a week out.

I just got mine yesterday in perfect condition. The package itself was pretty light (compared to the LE HD collection) since it's only the game and the figure. I was surprised at how large the figure was and how detailed it was.

It didn't come with the soundtrack (unlike the US CE), nor the steelbook, but at least the cover art is reversible.

What I ended up doing is switching out the UK version of the game along with the cover art and swapped it with the (2 disc) US CE case.

Oh yeah, I checked and I was only charged $155 + $5 exchange fee. No delivery charge for whatever reason..

nippon-yasan.com. They have fantastic prices, and they package their stuff really well.

Are they doing the better shipping with tracking and insurance yet, or is it the same old small packets it's always been?

I honestly am not sure about the insurance, however I did get a tracking # when the order shipped, but it wasn't that accurate (comparatively speaking with USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.). I believe they do tracking for "larger" items like the MGS HD Coll. CE.

They did ship it in a box that was slightly larger than it and packed it with a lot of paper, so I think they learned their lesson from before.

GS.com and all stores locally to me was out of stock until a few days ago. Right now only a few stores replenished stock.

I'm keeping my eye on it. I absolutely loved the game and starting my 3rd playthrough now. If one of these stores goes OOS again then I will feel the pressure. But until then i simply went with regular edition and pre-ordered the play arts figure that's limited to 1000 units. I think i'll be happy enough with that.

Mine came through from Amazon just fine, but they really should have taken more care with the packing. Mine came in a box twice the size of the actual CE box without any air pillows or styrofoam fillers. Plus, the box was not marked as fragile even though there's a GLASS LAMP in there. :roll:

Taking an item down due to complaints is not the same as selling out. These are not even remotely rare, they still have several at my GS and even a few at my BB.


Yea there is no way they sold out of these they had tons of them left. They were just fed up with complaints. I'm hoping they bring them back.. I can't imagine they will return all of their inventory to the manufacturer but who knows.

I want to buy from them but it makes me mad when they sell their used ones for more than retail price. I know AWH has formulas they use but knowing they have new ones they can sell for $150 sitting there but they refuse to and instead theyre selling used ones for more, frustrating.

I just received one from AWD, the lamp only lights up, doesnt seem to do the whole electricity thing. Is this a normal defect?

The switch has 3 positions. The middle if off. I think down is lights only and up is everything.

Yep there are three modes. The Arc Lightning Mode (I'm calling it that :p) should immediately show the arc forming on the top.

Top - Arc Lightning Mode
Middle - Off
Bottom - On (Blue Lights only)

There is also a small flathead screw on the bottom of the lamp, if you turn it a certain amount to one side it changes the plasma arc formation. Might want to give it a shot before you return it (I probably would return it regardless however).

Amazon's strategy: Why sell it for $150 new when we can sell it for $180 used and not have to deal with broken lamp complaints :wall:

yea but when it was taken down there was a notice that they were investigating a problem and it would be back soon. There is no notice now it's most likely gone for good.
