    Anyone want to place bets which place will be the first to stock it and dispatch it out, play.com usually get titles out on a wednesday or thursday before the monday release but they still dont have it instock and I have cancelled my order from them anyway, £39.99 from HMV was just to tempting :)

    I did exactly the same and I keep checking to see if HMV have sent out but no such luck yet. Maybe Sat or Sun?

    Regarding Pre-Orders it says on their site that they post 1 or 2 working days before release so you have on release day, im still hoping for them to get stock tomorrow and send out, might have for saturday but for £39.99 im willing to wait and extra few days lol

    Just checked HMV and mine says "Your order is now complete and the balance will be shipped within 24 hrs" but I doubt very much it will be here tomorrow :(

    Also, if you want to know what the set is like mate, why not read 1 of the many reviews around for it, at only £39.99 I think its well worth it for 9 discs, that equals about £4.50 per disc which is a bargain.

    I had exactly the same email earlier today.
    Bt the way Phil I have you to thank for this, so thanks again.
    £39.99, excellent value. I am hoping for mine on Monday.
    In passing I asked Smiths how much they expect to be selling it for on Monday and they said about £65!

    I also got an email from HMV saying it was posted today via first class so looking at tuesday.

    Also, Marv why did you order it from Play when it is £10 cheaper from HMV?

    A few weeks back some people were saying that the Digi-Pack style of the Region 2 release wasent a good idea because the discs would become loose and get ruined, that is why they went for the Region 1 release, but did anyone who got the Region 2 set have any of the discs loose? all 9 of my discs were firmly in place.

    Also, is the Alien Quadrilogy Trailer present on the Region 1 set because I cant find it on the Region 2 set but it is advertised as being on the set on a number of websites.

    I've got mine!
    £39.99 from HMV.
    I think it is exquisitely packaged and presented.
    It looks to me a better designed and presented boxset than the R1.

    Got mine yesterday R2 from HMV and i think the packaging is excellent, none of the disks were loose unlike my amicus set. I think the green digipack that the disks sit in is also a very nice touch

    Im taking my set back tomorrow to an HMV store because the booklet is badly ripped, looks like whoever was placing it in the package was very careless and jammed it in, thank god I dont have to post it back like I would have had to do if I had got it from play or another online only retailer.
