After looking at what others got some pages back I ended up getting The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy Slipcased Edition and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind Box Set. I was looking at Transformers: The Complete All Hail Megatron and anything else for my final two. Someone mentioned Senran Kagura, but I just prefer hardcovers. There were drawing anatomy books, contemporary house design, Batman: Dark Knight Saga, and many more to choose from, but I wanted to get the most from it. Plus, I wanted a complete series/events. Thats why I didn't get the Saga books or anything else that was incomplete. I definitely would've picked up the 3 Locke and Key Master books if I had three available. It was already too late when I noticed those books.

 

I have multiple accounts so I was able to get all these:

Highschool of the Dead Omnibus Vol. 1

Highschool of the Dead Omnibus Vol. 2

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind Box Set

The Planetary Omnibus

The Legend of Zelda: Arts and Artifacs

Marvel's Infinity (Hardcover)

X-Men: Days of Future Past (Hardcover) ... I hope I got the right one. The TPB had completely different issues.

The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy Slipcased Edition

Had it not taken so long I would've remembered to post about the free popcorn deal for spending $25 that stacked with this. Mine should be coming in a box thanks to the combination order and probably would've helped you guys out too. Sucks that Amazon refuses to change despite millions of complaints by this point.

My Witcher Compendium arrived on Tuesday (gf's account), but my BotW deluxe guide is still in the "we don't know" part of shipping with an eta of Nov 15th. Looks like everybody tried to get one lol.

Good thinking, but sadly it didn't work with Nausicaa. I tried it and the popcorn was free, but the book discount was reduced. It seemed that the credits were combined and subject to the same credit limit.

 

Edit: My Nausicaa came in and luckily it was pretty well packaged. Also, I used my audible credits for A Game of Thrones and the 2nd book. Really enjoying it so far. I can't believe so many people are overlooking the audio books part of this deal! Gonna keep my subscription just to show some support for this sweet sign up bonus.

I contacted them via chat yesterday and they weren’t able to help but escalated it via email response. Today I got an email apologizing and with a code for a free book up to $50. Yay

Why won't the mods do their jobs already and move this into the deal graveyard? This has been dead for days. If you didn't already get your Audible credit, you aren't getting now.

After a few phone calls and chats which I was told to just keep waiting I finally got an email with my code this evening. Hopefully others can still get theirs too.

Ya I mentioned it a while ago lol but lots of ppl forgot to add it apparently lol

I can't get the Nausicca box set. The one listed by amazon is over $50 and won't qualify now =(
Edit: Weird ok it worked even though its over $50...like how the Zelda Deluxe BOTW guide is $54.39 works too. Is that the most expensive that promo works on?

If u have Prime remember to get ur free popcorn lol https://www.amazon.c...ode=17132264011

I am still waiting for my books lol

Book came intact today; shipped in a box thanks to the big bag of popcorn. Almost tossed out the popcorn thinking it was rather bland until realizing the caramel corn was separate and had just shifted down. Not bad for free. :)

Got my BoTW Deluxe guide that I got with my sisters account today. Came in a box within a box. Haven't opened it yet but the top of the shrinkwrap was cut a bit and I believe a corner of the map poster was popping out of the opening so it's a bit bent and frayed but the book itself seems to be in perfect condition and free is free. My Nausicaa set comes in tomorrow. Anyone know any good gaming or comic related audiobooks to get?

Nice!

 

I cancelled my order for The Sky this morning when I saw that it wouldn't be delivered for another 3-4 weeks even though Amazon has it in stock...... I replaced it with All Hail Megatron instead.... but now I kinda want it. So luckily, I was still able to cancel a book that was preparing for shipment. Used that on The Sky instead of Days of Future Past. I guess I'll just have to wait. Hopefully they don't cancel my order. One of my orders mysteriously cancelled a few hours after I placed it the other day.

 

Anyways, TLoZ: Arts & Artifacts arrived yesterday. I should be getting most of my orders next week.

I know is frowned upon to discuss Xbox-related stuff in this thread and in the collector's edition one as well (I kid, I kid), but finally got my copy of "The Art of Halo 5: Guardians" on Tuesday but forgot to open the box until today. Totally worth the $0,00 I paid for it. Now I wish 343i would just stop with the mystery and announce Halo 6 already.

Totally worth the $0,00 I paid for it. Now I wish 343i would just stop with the mystery and announce Halo 6 already.

I'm wish there was a better Bungie-era Halo book, covering everything up until Reach. I have "The Art of Halo: Creating A Virtual World", and it's great, but it came out during the Halo 2 era. There is a Halo 3 book too, but it's stupid expensive now. It sounds like "Halo: The Great Journey: The Art of Building Worlds" might be close to what I want, but I'm curious how much is dedicated to Halo Anniversary.

While I'm sure the Halo 5 one would have a lot of interesting stuff in it, I really hate 343's art style for just about every aspect. The only design change I liked was Halo 4 Cortana, and the borked that with 5. Sanghelios is decent too.

Get The Art of Building Worlds. It’s the best Halo book IMHO. I have the Halo 3 book and it’s just okay. Not worth the current prices

I also cancel my order of The Sky: Final Fantasy due to 2-4 weeks of waiting and order the Nausicaa Box Set which I got with 2-day prime shipping. Hopefully no smash corners so it can fit with my studio ghibli collection.
