    I think that might be the official line they give to customers who might not of yet purchased. I was told exactly this on wednesday.

    However, later that day I has a message on my voicemail saying they had ROTK.EE R1 ready to go and wanted to confirm my card number. I had pre-ordered with a card that had now expired. I phone back and explained the situation and my revised card number was taken.

    It could be a case of they have only recieved a limited intial stock, which will obviously go to those who pre-ordered, rather than those who had only recently ordered. As more copies come in, so they fill the later orders.

    Only a theory though.

    This must be the earliest any Region 2 DVD has ever been posted out before the release date.
    I know alot of Lord of the Rings fans and no of them have pre-ordered it and even though I have told them it has been shipping since Friday they dont believe me and say it wont be shipped until release date, dont suppose someone could take some photos of it I could show them?

    Mine arrived too. And my next door neighbours: we opened our mail boxes at the same time.

    Thanks for the headsup on the 17.99 deal as well, thats from both my neighbour and me.

    Now guess what I'll be watching tonight?

    I believe dvd.co.uk started shipping on Friday and remember they are based in Jersey so if it didnt arrive today I am sure it will turn up tomorrow, my order for the standard 4 Disc Edition was posted on Saturday from Sendit.com so I am expecting it to be here tomorrow and according to Play.com my order for the 5 Disc Gift Set was posted yesterday.

    Also, thanks for the pics.

    mine was shipped last thursday, arrived today, just got through watching it. no doubt a great movie, picture quality is excellent in most scenes, but grainy in a few dark scenes (initially i thought it was all awful pq until i noticed i'd switched DNR on on my dvd player with maximum sharpness :blush: ) not sure which sound is better out of DD and DTS, I found DTS to be a bit heavy in the front channels but i only really tried it out on the opening couple of scenes.

    Im hoping DVDsoon are going to get this to me like they did for the Star wars trilogy, which was only a day later than the release date. I can wait an extra day considering it was cheap and its the superior R1 version.
