Put in a preorder for this last night at the $120 price.  Probably will cancel though since my Amazon credit will be used on a PS4 :(

Whenever i bought a Collectors whatever it wasn't about Resale value, same reason with getting a new console early, I have a desire to use it. And in earnest this just seems like rebindings of Guides that years ago that i invested in a few, but the high price tag of a guide that was shunned by friends, used seldomly (but still valued in aggrivating circumstances), and somehow didn't hold a candle to player written walkthroughs, refrences, guides, and hints that i copy and pasted into word documents and later ported to PDFs.

 

If I found this at a yard sale I would buy it, I like the bindings, and i would like to stack it next to my shelf of old books, dragon statues, TES Cases, and TES Novels (if they ever print).

The wording on the Prima website has changed a bit, it now says;

 

"This limited edition set will only be printed once and the number available will be set in stone very soon. So what are you waiting for? Pre-order your Zelda treasure box on Amazon.com"

 

It used to say will only be available to those who preorder. Either way this will sell out soon as if this is really numbered and hand signed by Eiji Aonuma then how many copies could you really ask someone to sign? My guess 2000-3000. Could you really ask someone to hand sign 10,000+ certificates?

Wasn't this $120.XX when it was posted a few days ago?


Not according to camelcamelcamel unless they changed the product code or something and the tracking is inaccurate. Would love to get it for $120.

Was also surprised that I wasn't getting free prime shipping. I figured it was because my prime runs out in November. Going to renew it anyway, but still I was surprised to see it. Was even going to call an Amazon rep to see if there was a computer glitch. I figured I'll just wait it out since its not out for a few months.

Seems pretty crazy for a bunch of strategy guides. Most hard backs go for around $20/ea~ so this is even above that. If they were along the lines of Hyrule Historia I might consider it, but strategy guides are a whole other thing all together.

Dang! I tried to talk a CS into matching the earlier price and it was a no go. She did give me a $7 credit though, which was pretty cool all the same. Maybe I should try my luck again tomorrow? For $30 I'd give them at least a couple jingles in case it actually works.

It was $120 for part of the day yesterday. I bought mine at 3:20 pm PT and quickly came over and posted in the Collectors guide thread that it had dropped to $120.  I believe it went up around 11:30pm  PT yesterday

Has anyone tried to get a price adjustment to yesterday's $120 price? Seems like a long shot, but who knows.

Contacted Amazon support to ask why the item didn't show up as Prime eligible, he told me that when the item released it would automatically be upgraded to Prime shipping and then asked if I wanted to change my shipping from Standard to Two-Day. I told him only if I had his assurance that if the shipping didn't automatically upgrade to Prime, if I could get the shipping charge refunded. 

Instead of any hassles, he just gave me two day shipping at no charge, so it might pay off to contact support to see if they can help you out as well. 

Beats paying $13 for shipping if you're already a Prime member.

The internet has made strategy guides obsolete and inefficient. I think potential profit is all that's left, and the joy of hoarding.

Well, for me, I genuinely love the Zelda games. I've been trying to pick up stuff I've missed out on, so this is a great win for me. Might not be an outrageous deal, but considering I had looked into these on eBay.,.this works much better for me. I'll scoop then up and be happy with my purchase.

If I had the money, I so would jump on this as I don't have any of the guides anymore. Only had Twilight Princess and N64 Ocarina of Time guides at one time.

Kind of wish they'd sell the books individually.  I could go without the bookmark, the bookholder, and the certificate if the price was right.

I mean, errr this is mostly just a "special" reprinting of a lot of these guides that they pretty much couldn't GIVE away before, besides the chest there really is nothing that warrants this price-tag for $153... This is pretty much a "Hey you guys bought all the Hyrule Historia so here is another limited* thing!" *Limited meaning "Hey this is limited, so buy this because WHO KNOWS... it MIGHT be super expensive and you could sell it on ebay!"

This is also how I feel about this box set.  While I absolutely love the Zelda series (and bought the Hyrule Historia), I'm not really interested in this set....especially at the huge price tag.  I'd be a bit more interested if these were various artbooks or something of the sort rather than guides.  But I'm happy for those that want this.

I'm not sure I'll bite at that price for those games, yet if it was double the price and included all the console Zelda games, I'd already have it preordered

I got amazon to give me a $32 refund once it ships. Plus free 2 day shipping since I'm a prime member. Super YMMV

I could be wrong on this, but nowhere does it say it is "hand signed".  It just says signed.... which could just mean it has his signature on it (mass produced photo copy on individually numbered certificates).
