    OK so the BIG day has finally arrived for Star Wars fans

    Did your copy arrive this morning?

    From what online retailer did you purchase it?

    We’re you happy with the packaging? (Any damages)

    Has anyone been hit by customs? (Ouch!!!)

    Mine was posted from DVDsoon on the 15th. So I’m expecting it tomorrow. Hopefully!

    It plays fine on my computer. None of the other disks I have seem to have the problem. It loads up the menu and it starts jittering once the main movie starts to play. I was thinking maybe the bitrate was too high, going to try playing my Hero DTS or a superbit title to see if they play ok on the Tangent.

    Its the R2. The player will play my Mask of Zorro Superbit but will not even recognise the Hero DTS R3. So back to maplin I guess. Cr*p.

    Missus advises that The Delivery from Amazon came this morning (before 10am). Perfectly packaged, too...

    Are there any issues over packaging between the quality of the R1 v R2 (like the EE versions of LOTR - which IMHO were much better packaged as R1) I'm broke at the mo & may have to wait till the price plummets to sneak this one past wifey ;)

    I am sure it has been posted mate, dont trust what it says on their website as mine still says Processing but I recieved it a few hours ago, not bad for £25.19 :thumbsup:

    Also, from what people were saying about the packaging I was expecting it to be like the Futurama sets but it is very similar to the 97 SE VHS releases where the cases sit inside one box and that box fits into the outer box. Its not made from the same material as the Indiana Jones set which is a shame but it seems fine to me.

    Got mine this afternoon from HMV in Hull in the gold box. Good job I'd preordered it because they didn't have too many gold editions left! Wasn't a bad price either considering it was £29.99 minus my 10% student discount so I got it for £27.

    Oh, and the DVDs are excellent but I'm sure you all know that!

    Mine has been posted by Play and I had a letter from the PO saying they had tried to deliver it this morning, but I wasn't in! :censored:

    Now I have to either get up real early tomorrow to collect it, or wait till Saturday. No contest really, 6:00AM here I come! :rolleyes:

    If you want big releases on time, I stongly recommend popping to the shops on the day, i.e on a lunch break. There is no point in online order. Ok, you may pay £2 or so more in the shops but at least the shops will always have enough in stock.
