    By box set with the ickle Hellboy was sent 3 days ago according to DVD Thunder in Canada. Hope it's here by the end of the week.
    My brother ordered his box set from MovieTyme and it was dispatched end of last week as well , we've got a race on to see who's arrives first. :)

    Its amazing the prices some people were charging for it when I was out on saturday, saw a few stalls selling it and they wanted between £25 and £35 for just the standard 3 disc boxset, sad thing is people were buying it for that price, felt like going upto them afterwards and letting them know they could have got it for about £10 cheaper from any number of websites.

    has anybody else had this e-mail from DVDsoon

    Dear Sir;

    Please remember that the price that is paid at the time of the order is
    what guaranties your priority when the product is delivered. As the
    item you have ordered was a limited release we were not able to cover
    all orders with the amount Columbia alloted for us. Columbia did not
    want to say how many copies they would make available for Canada so we
    had no way to know how many to expect. At this time all copies have
    been received and shipped so we have now marked the product as
    discontinued. You will now have to cancel this order and ask for a store
    credit or a refund. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Looks like money is the priority not when we ordered the greedy gits

    Ouch !. That's a total pain in the a**e hearing something like that , though i'm not totally surprised it's from DVDSoon. I've that a similar e-mail to that once or twice and getting them to refund my card was a real hassle. What they prefer you to take is store credit.
    If your desparate for the collectors set you could try Movietyme who had some at the end of last week at any rate. Not as cheap as DVDSoon but a lot more reliable.
    Good luck.

    there lose really as now I will look to buy DVDs elsewhere if thats what they think of there customers I will think twice before ordering
    for future reference is it safe to use DVDpacific now after all the alleged problems, I know they haven't got any of these sets left as I have had a look

    DVDpacific is one company i've never tried after all the bad press they seemed to have gotton over the years.
    MovieTyme , DVD Thunder and occasionally PlayUSA are my R1 dealers of choice.

    Just got my box set from the postie in turn from DVD Thunder in Canada. Postie just handed it over with no request for customs fees or VAT. Does this mean i've gotten away with no fee or may i get a bill from someone in due course?
    Forgive my ignorrance but i don't usually order expensive dvd's from abroad.

    Cheers

    Im not 100% sure but I think if there is anything to pay the postie will want it before he hands it over but delivery companies like DHL will give you the item now but you may get a payment request through the post, might be wrong but sure someone will post the facts.

    Smartipants. I've checked the Thunder web site and maybe suggest you check else where. A week ago i paid $41 plus $4 (Canadian $)shipping and they've jacked the price upto $59 canadian plus it say $28 for postage due to the weight :eek:
    Good luck with what ever you do.

    at least you had the email. there are quite a lot of people who dont seem to recieve dvdnevers update emails, although we recieve the thanks for your order and dispatch notices. I've had a winge at veronique on dvdswaps but she's just spouts the part line. its not her fault but frustrating none the less.

    I've had 4 orders go this way recently and although a devout dvdsoon fan the accolade is begining to tarnish (again!)

    thankfully I managed to get in at amazon after I 'noticed' the item had discontinued

    thanks for that I will add them to my list
    in the end I have ended up getting the 3 disc cut without the bust
    It was doing my head in with all the chasing around, I wasn't prepaired to spend over £30 with a chance of getting caught by customs
    got it for under £13 from DVDimport in the end
    thanks to you all
    Just got to get my money back from DVDnever!
