Just came here to post this. Glad someone already did! Already preordered.

Do you think this will be shrink wrapped? Should I order 2?

Lol, did critics agree on the official timeline or are they still nerding over discrepancies?

Eh, maybe I'll pick this up if it shows up in my quick picks. Would make a good coffee table book.

Not bad, almost $10 off MSRP. I think I'll get some Amazon credit via Bing, then pre-order.

I have the Japanese one too and am wondering if I should get this one. I can read the translations online but I'm more or less wondering about the quality- not to knock on Dark Horse, but I'm just wondering as to how the Japanese version will compare to the US version.

And I hope that's no the cover. The Japanese version is so much classier.

Does it look as amazing as most Zelda fans would imagine?

I had no idea they were making this. I think I'm going to have to get this. Zelda fan + artbook fan seems like a win.

Does anyone know if Amazon charges for pre-orders upon placing the order or do they wait until the product ships?
