    Im still waiting - it is still awaiting dispatch.

    The annoying thing is that it comes out in the shops tomorrow.
    I would cancel the order but they charged my cc from the day I pre-ordered it.

    Has anyone actually received their LOTR extended from CD-Wow?

    Maybe check your order history again, my copy from CD-Wow is listed as 'sent' at the time of this post (10.15am, 11 Nov).

    I guess I'll expect to have it by Wednesday, 13th.

    I tend to agree with that sentiment.

    As it happens, one of the biggest releases of the year (AOTC) was in some people's hands 5 to 10 days before the offical release date... and I think it's started/helped continue an unfortunate precedent.

    However I think pre-orders should be with the customer by the time they go on general release ie posted a couple of days before it hits the shops.

    I used to have that problem with my postman, until I showed him a new device I had installed in my frontdoor. It's called a 'letterbox'.

    Mine arrived on my doormat this morning... and very sumptuous it is too :)

    Got mine today!

    To say I am VERY impressed would be an understatement!!

    I have the region 1 - does anyone have the region 2?
    I would be interested to see which is better - man this package is so good I might get both.

    I was on nights too, postie knocked extra hard and woke me up!

    Can't wait to hear if DD5.1EX (and DTS6.1) soundtrack is better than ATOC!!:rolleyes:

    Yes got the ticket. Now it'll only cost me £350 to get a flight so I can use it:mad:

    Also got R2 yesterday for a friend.

    Packaging looks exactly the same apart from the outer cover. Didn't get that with the R2 although the fold out was the same.

    Yep, thinking of mailing it to my friend in the States.

    How cool is the package overall though? Best £22 I have ever spent on a DVD.

    BTW, my copy had TWO layers of shrink wrap? Also, what are people doing with the paper insert that comes loose when the wrap is off? I put mine in the case but can see it getting damaged over time.

    Got mine this morning as well - in immacculate condition too! :D

    This is without doubt the best DVD ever - don't even think about arguing with me! :mad: :devil:

    Does anyone know whether there are any trailers in the extras? I couldn't find them, and I thought there was a TTT preview as well :confused:


    No customs either (have never had any problem with cd-wow, and I have ordered a few box-sets off of them now).

    Mine arrived today from CD-WOW as well and no customs worries either. THEY ARE AS RELIABLE AS EVER :D

    What a fantastic package! Lex is right, this is top quality stuff. Proper cardboard & everything :D Will have to get some spirit out later and clean the gunk off that was left from the security sticker though :(

    Juboy - I put the back insert inside the case as well :) It probably will get damaged over time but the length LOTR is, I doubt I'll be watching it too often ;)

    Hope I like LOTR - not seen it before :blush:

    If you email them and tell them, they will send you another one out immediately and then send you a jiffy bag to send the other one back in whenever.

    If you're worried that it means you'll get hit with customs charges again, then tell them that in the email and I'm sure they'll be very helpful. They always are.
