That sucks. I was hoping Amazon would actually come through and fulfill all the pre-orders. Even though my order shipped I got the same email saying that I wouldn't be charged and was be given $10 in credit, but neither one was true.

Amazon did not handle this well at all, and $10 isn't enough compensation for those who were given the run-around and ended up missing out.


just for curiosity when was your shipping date?

I contacted customer support and they gave me an additional $30, so I have $40 in credit.

It shipped yesterday. CS upgraded the order to 1-day shipping without my consent, but I guess it didn't push my order back. I haven't received it yet though.

What shipping did you pick when you purchased it? I picked the cheapest option and they seemed to have shipped accordingly since the tracking doesn't ever work like it says in my email. It doesn't even work using their own link... :-?


I picked the 2-day UPS shipping option. Used the "INFO" promo for a $10 shipping discount.

Yeah, when I ordered, I didn't know about that code. I placed my order back on January 5th after everyone else sold out so I was just happy to get an order in.

Of course, I wasn't expecting TFAW get some more back in just a few days ago...:-/

My Amazon order was canceled too. :( To add insult to injury my account isn't showing the $10 credit they promised me. I just sent them a long complaint, so we'll see what happens. Meh.

what was your shipping date? i just want to know the timeframe of those whose order was cancelled.

and try to make a purchase, those $10 don't show on your amazon credit until you are going to make a purchase, it appears as promotional credit.

Just a warning, but continually getting credited is a good way to get perma-banned from Amazon.


I would think that credits received because of such errors won't get anyone banned from Amazon. If you constantly buy stuff and return it and instead of asking for a replacement, you keep asking for a refund, then that could get you in trouble.

There is a formula amazon uses, and number of contact is a factor, even when it is their mistake.

It doesn't matter for credits that they give you as automatic compensation (such as in this case of orders being cancelled) but when you continually contact them and the CS response results in you being credited, that does raise flags even if you don't specifically ask for the credits.

Yeah I would second be careful with credits. Once in a while is fine but if you get a lot back in a short time they will flag and ban you.

My LE was cancelled too and my delivery date was 2/14. I was one of the first to order on 11/25. Many CAGs who got their LE said they ordered on 11/26? Same thing for the regular edition. I was one of the first to order back when the price was $26-ish but my delivery date was way later (2/8) than those who ordered the week of release and got theirs right away?!

Why is Amazon fulfilling orders in backward chronological order?! It is not fair to people who were repeatedly promised by CS and waited in vain for Amazon to come through. Everyone who pre-ordered early should definitely complain to bring this to their attention!

Did you make any changes to your payment method? If you do anything like that, then your order gets moved to end of the queue. Meaning if your were the first person to order and a total of 1000 people ordered, and you made a change later on, then your order will automatically become the 1000th order (while everyone else moves up). That might explain why. I'm not sure if other changes (like quantity or address) effect this.

What shipping method did you choose? If you have Prime or you paid for standard shipping or anything faster, it will usually bump you towards the front of the fulfillment line, but you have to choose the faster shipping at the time you order. If you modified the order in any way after you placed it, such as changing shipping address, speed, or payment information, your order falls to the back of the queue. At the end of the day, it looks like Amazon just plain oversold. They had the limited edition listing up before Dark Horse announced that it was limited to 4,000 copies, so they were probably taking orders before they knew their exact allotment.

I have prime 2 day shipping and did not change my order in any way for the LE. I was pissed about the delivery date for my regular edition order being a week after everyone else (even with prime shipping) so I called and they bumped it up. After reading here about how modifying the order will set you back, I made sure I didn't touch the order for my LE. Yet, I saw on here that for both books people who ordered last got theirs first! Total BS on Amazon's part!

Well, of course, Amazon sent my LE in a box that was too small. Both ends of the spine are crushed in and all the corner edges are white. It's not that bad, but it is yet another fuckup on Amazon's part.

TFAW gave me a tracking number that doesn't work. Awesome! I guess I'll see my demolished book in 7-14 days.

My TFAW LE came in today (metro DC area), shipped from OR on 2/19. Wrapped nearly completely in bubble wrap (the face and open end weren't completely covered), with some packing peanuts in the box. Top corners on the open end are a bit dinged, no white showing, spine's in good shape.

Did anyone that bought from forbiddenplanet get their credit card hacked? Got some charges on mine for airfrance and londonblu which makes me think it was from someone in europe. I've only used that card at a few places besides for this in the last few months. Possibly from bhphoto.
