Placed my order with B&N on Aug 28. Currently showing hasn't shipped yet with Oct 30 as an estimate.

Came out to Order Total
Subtotal: $82.34
Sales Tax: $6.38
Order Total $88.72

On one hand I hope it doesn't get cancelled since it's such a beautiful set but on the other I have AC3 and a bunch of other games coming out real soon so I'm hoping that it does. Regardless which way this ends I'll definitely be ecstatic/regretful at the same time. Very conflicted.

Heads up too, the signed card you get is an actual signature as well. It isn't just printed on, so thats pretty cool.

The one I got was signed in red colored pencil, while others I saw in unboxings on youtube were done in black marker...

No shit? That's fucking bad ass... if that's the case, then there probably aren't that many to go around. Man, I hope I get one but that Nov 1 delivery date is making me worry.:-(

Yeah that card says its limited to 1000 copies.

Looks like he was at NYCC as well, Darkhorse only had 20 of these total at the entire convention.

This is to the people who ordered at The Book Depository-- have they given you a refund yet, or are they holding out? Taking way too long to be refunded.

I got a refund right away via paypal. Thats how I paid at least. Not sure about credit card reimbursement.

Longer answer can be provided if requested; I get this question every once and a while. :]

Refunds usually take a few days to show up in your credit card activity if that's how you paid. If I don't see anything by Monday I'll be contacting them, but too early to be concerned yet.

My (sadly full price) order from mycomicshop.com has shipped; if I ordered stuff from comic shops very often, I'd probably check them out again in the future, as long as everything makes it to me in good shape.

Still waiting (and hoping) on Barnes & Noble to come through. I emailed them about the stock, but to no surprise whatever help desk that ends up at only gave me the "this item releases Oct 30th" email. My hopes grow dim....

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Fuck it. I just bought a copy on ebay from somebody who has it in hand.

IF Barnes and Noble does ship my copy by some miracle, then I will sell it for the price I bought it at to someone who was not able to get it. Dark Horse REALLY screwed the pouch on this by not informing retailers or customers about how limited this set was actually going to be.

Let's hope the Hyrule Historia isn't limited either.

Who said B&N is not getting this. I think they took just enough pre-orders to fulfill
I am still positive

I've been back and forth with Dark Horse and Barnes and Noble since this set was announced. I called B&N again today to try and straighten out what was going on with my preorder. Apparently, they are getting 120 copies. Take it with a huge grain of salt though because they weren't aware that it was limited to 1000 copies.

So good luck to everyone.

Last I saw they said it was limited to 1000 copies so I don't see what the problem is. Now if you missed the pre-order than dont blame Dark Horse. I hope the Hyrule Historia IS limited but we all know it won't be like The Sky.

Edit: I saw you tried B&N but they screwed you. Next time try to pre-order at a more reliable site. If they were the only ones left at the time then I see the big mix up.

Eh, Dark Horse seems to be due plenty of blame. When they resolicited, it was effectively a new product, so any preorders prior to that point may or may not have been valid.

I didn't miss the preorder. I've had it preordered since April of 2011.

Also, it was never announced that it was going to be limited to 1000 sets until this month. The re-solicitation of the set back from August 2012 can be seen here:

I went and put an order in with Amazon UK, but I'm not getting my hopes up. It'll probably be cancelled for lack of stock.

after scowering a few of the target stores in my area, I finally found one that had a few pre-order tags left for the premium system.

it seems odd that the ticket claims it's a $5 deposit, yet only ran up for a $1 or that none of the employees in the stores that I visited had any knowledge that they were even offering pre-orders

Think you are posting in the wrong thread. This is for the Sky: Art of Final Fantasy boxed set, not the Wii U.

Speaking of Sky, I had my pre-order arrival date through Amazon moved to Oct. 31. Hopefully it ships tomorrow or next week but I am kind of nervous about it now since the set is so limited

yeah, I had 2 windows opened and posted a reply in the wrong one. still waiting to see if amazon gets any more of the boxed sets in though :)

not quite sure why cag doesn't allow you to delete your own posts. all the what looks like a 'delete button' does is send a flag to the moderators so that they can delete it
