    I have just spoken to CD WOW customer services regarding the shipping date for the R1 version of the trilogy box set and am gutted to find out that they will not actually be posting any copies out until next Monday 20th : :mad: . I know thats the official release date, but I was hoping that they would be posting them in time for delivery on the release date or even slightly earlier as they do with most pre-release orders.

    Looks like anyone who ordered from them will be waiting until the middle or end of next week before they receive their copy and knowing my luck with CD WOW I'll be getting the dreaded - OUT OF STOCK - email. :thumbsdow

    Apologies if there is already a thread regarding this but with so many threads on SW I did'nt have time to search through them all!!!

    CD-WOW do not tend to send out before release date, and I don't think they have for a long time

    Wish I'd known that before I ordered, especially since I had my credit card charged months ago. :suicide:

    In my own experience I have normally received my pre-orders on or about the release date, although as already said my luck recently with CD-WOW has not been all that good as I keep getting the OUT OF STOCK email.

    It's just frustrating that they aren't shipping until next week when I ordered months ago, whereas I could order form movietyme this week and have it for the weekend.

    Especially as I am off work at the moment following an operation and have loads of time to watch it, but my sick note runs out next week, although I might be getting it extended as I'm still not 100%. :(

    I'm just bored and want some new films to watch :D

    craig, how come you are now shipping next day, when some seem to have been waiting since thurs/fri last week? Do they come into you first before being rerouted? I'd guess so as I've chosen special delivery.

    Did they just come in today? In which case hopefully ours will be here tomorrow...

    Is there any difference between the US and Canadian versions?Fox do not use multiligual covers.
    Don't waste money on Special Delivery with Movietyme.Both orders I placed using it were charged for special but sent recorded.And because their site does not show whats in stock(unlike PLAY)I paid Special delivery for an item they did not get in for about 2 weeks

    Well I have cancelled the order with CD WOW and reordered from EnterpriseDVD. They said it should be posted either today or tomorrow so with any luck I will have it for the weekend, I've have had a quite a bit of previous experience with EnterpriseDVD over the years and have found them to be reliable, so if they say it will be posted I have no reason to believe it wont be. Its a couple of quid more than CD WOW but quite a bit cheaper than Movietyme and as long as I do get it by then it will probably save me £20 or £30 which I would have blown down the pub.

    Just got mine from Movietyme, great service as i ordered late Wednesday and received early Friday

    Boba Fett sounds like a wuss now as all the menace in his voice has disappeared ( thats my opinion ) but at least the girly scream has disappeared from Empire although the burp from Jedi still remains ( which is unfortunate although it was always the merchandising kiddie film of the series )

    Disappointed that no deleted scenes were put on the extras disc as there must be dozens of individual scenes from each film that could have been included, my initial impressions are that the picture quality looks great but i will reserve full opinion until i watch them all ( noticed some digital smearing of Han's face when he walks over Jabbas tail in the first film )
