Seeing as how you can add 999 to your cart, hard to tell. But I would think it will go unnoticed for a while.

It's more than I would want to pay for it, still don't know how Amazon had the price so low.

Mine is still "Not yet shipped" with an est. delivery date of Feb 14th from Amazon. Not sure what's taking so long.

So I did the B&N "trick." They told me there were 100 in the warehouse. How can this be? Do you think 4000 is a legit number?

So this $70 LE book isn't really a limited edition? And how low was amazons price?

I had 4000 in my cart just for fun, so there will definitely be some cancelled orders unless they cap now. I'm surprised they didn't cap at one per customer like they did for the limited run portal guns.

They just haven't put in their available quantity for whatever reason, and amazon had it for $45.xx when it went up for just one day on November 25th. Mine didn't ship yet so I'm grabbing one of these just in case.

As posted above, thinkgeek.com is also selling them, so I would say, no.

I hate fake LEs. If it is going to be limited, then keep it limited. (I still ordered, though :) )

I was able to add 1,998 to my cart so it's definitely not capped. I wonder now how many they have in stock. I did order one as I had my eye on it for a while.

keep up. Think Geek was announced as an official retailer a long time ago. They just have a habit of not putting anything up for presale. They typically wait until they have their inventory in their warehouse and it is ready to be distributed before they put it up on their website.

Every time you add to your cart, go back to the hyrule historia page and add another 999. it continues adding indefinitely.

Yep. Which makes me wonder how they're gonna handle the fallout when shit hits the fan tomorrow. Their customer support closed at 7pm so you can't call and ask how many they have.

Thanks for the tip OP! I had been waiting for them to put it up, was checking multiple times for about the past week. Keeping my fingers crossed that it goes through and I can claim a copy.

Glad I checked this before heading out to class. I can not feel assured to cancel my other orders.

It would be economy though, depending on how they package it may not be a great idea.

I can add 5000 copies to my cart. Definitely an inventory error going on here. I can see massive cancellation emails going out tomorrow.

Does the shipping speed determine the packaging?

It came out to $75, the shipping was free.




Did a store order this for you or was this online? Do any stores even stock it?

No but in theory the longer something takes to be delivered the more it is handled and the more time it spends in a truck/plane processing facility.

In my experience, BN is bad at packaging items. Received quite a few ripped covers on books and dented tin dvd sets.

Surprised there isn't more excitement thinkgeek finally listed it. Those should definitely be legit if they don't oversell.

Oh no, tin foil hat time guys! It's somehow not magically limited now that ThingGeek, you know, a major retailer that was listed as gonna be a retailer, just now put their preorder up for it. Dark Horse has truly fucked you all by making more than 4000 due to this late breaking story. ;)

You people, I swear, amaze me to no end.

No stores had it in stock. An employee ordered it for me, but said I had to pay in advance and that it was shipping to my home. I called different stores and only one store let me order it by phone.
