I came home to find my copy sitting on my doorstep. I ordered with Prime sometime in November.

Their HQ is located in Virginia (I think) so on 1/28/13 9:00pm PST (1/29 12:00am EST) I'm going to keep checking their site. ThinkGeek is probably the last chance you could ever find it for retail prices, unless you get really lucky to find a local comic book store that ordered extras.

where is this going to be on their website?

Mine hasn't even shipped from Amazon yet and I preordered back in August. Been waiting forever, so I can wait a few more days, but definitely jealous of you guys that have it in your hands already.

I would assume that the time they take to ship the order depends more on what type of shipping speed you used and less on when you preordered.

That being said, mine should be here tomorrow (I used Prime shipping). Looking forward to wasting a few days pawing through it.

Yeah, I also ordered mine in November, but with FSSS. Still says shipping soon. That's fine with me, as long as it gets here eventually. Can't wait to get my hands on it though!

Were you able to lift it with just the Power Glove? Or are we talking Titan's Mitt heavy? ;)

What has me worried now is where someone a few posts back reported the book with a bit of damage and my friend said his had "minor bends" but he wasn't picky enough to talk to Amazon about it. I'm worried for the LEs that they could get damaged and that could hurt the collectibility of them (first time I've bought something like this to keep, hope that's right). Hopefully Amazon will package these well (yeah right, standard book box with room to move I bet)


Amazon did a good job packaging the last UDON artbook I ordered, hopefully they'll do the same for all artbooks from now on.

Guess I'll find out tomorrow when my copy of the Zelda artbook arrives

I've had Amazon packages where they heat shrinkwrap the book on an oversize cardboard, then put that inside the clamshell box. It's the best packaging for books, but they don't always do that.

Is the LE actually supposed to be released tomorrow, or is the release date still February?

Tomorrow. Sadly, my FLGS says they can't sell it until Wednesday due to their contract with Diamond.

I'm going to check around the TFAW stores around me tomorrow. I wonder if any of them will get any books in store.

Same here. Assuming you're talking about the LE?

I'm pretty sure its backordered due to them having the wrong ETA. TFAW had it listed as the 29th. Dark Horse said on twitter the official date is suppose to be 2/12.

I finally heard back from my buddy who owns a local comic shop, and he told me he is supposed to get both versions in today, but won't be able to sell them until wed(but he is only getting a few, as allocation was at 60% for this item). I'm stopping by to get some boxes from him today, so I'll update later if in fact he received both books today or not.

My regular edition shipped today from Amazon. Wish I could have gotten the LE, but it just wasn't in the cards.

What shipping option did you choose? Are you on Prime?

Their twitter response was that the release date is 2/12 for the LE and that they need to update the official page for it.

The status for mine still says pre-order, unless there's somewhere else you can check the status.

So I am guessing that that the Limited Edition will not be on sale tomorrow at Comic book stores, unless of course they make a mistake.

According to whom? Dark Horse's Facebook page says it should be out today.

Odd. Your order is an "open order" not in stock whereas ours are listed as pending preorders that are in stock.

Got my book today (standard). The thing is gorgeous as others have stated. But amazon used a box just big enough, literally fit it like a glove. As such there was no padding on the sides and the four outside corners (2 front and 2 back) were damaged. Not happy considering my Ni No guide I got 5 days ago also suffered from damaged corners.

But again the book is stunning. It focuses a lot on Skyward Sword, but the last 1/2 covers all the other games as far as I can tell.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
