    West Wing's jumped in price. Amazon are on it now. Here's hoping I get a despatch on Rome before they cancel (went through Amazon Prime one day shipping and already showing as preparing for despatch - cannot be cancelled).

    The exact reason why I hate ticket touts, myself and a few of my mates actually wanted to get this bargain as we want to watch Sopranos, but people just bought multiple copies to make money.

    One copy, watch it, then sell it, fair enough. Gotta love greed.

    Who exactly are you refering too, no one has said they have bought muiltiple copies in this thread.

    I have 4 orders all different boxsets, 1 (numero uno) of each :lesson:

    1 Soprano's order which if you thought it would have ever of been honoured then you are wrong. :rolleyes:

    Apologies for that, the way your comment earlier was worded sounded like you ordered multiples of Sopranos. I'd put money on it people out there (maybe not on this forum) bought loads though.

    Have they not honoured any of the box sets?

    The thing with The Sopranos is that it was in stock when the misprice came into effect. I'd say anyone who got in early enough and used an Amazon Prime account to order it (using One Day Delivery) should get it, as they had a delivery date of tomorrow via Special Delivery showing up. Then again, I guess it's all down to which orders Amazon are trying to cancel first. Could well be they'll go for the most expensive ones (which would include The Sopranos - £164 or so, if memory serves me correctly). My Rome boxset was £72, so not so much of a loss for Amazon if they slipped through. I'd say anything that wasn't in stock at the time of ordering doesn't have a chance.



    EDIT: Nope, it's not being sorted by price, as people have had the £200 L&H Collection and the £200 Will & Grace (Complete) box set shipped

    Box sets that have already shipped to people at £17.97:

    Rome HBO Complete Series 1 & 2 - RRP £71.99
    Only Fools and Horses Complete Series 1-7 - RRP £89.99
    Will and Grace Complete Seasons 1-8 - RRP £199.99
    Laurel and Hardy Collection - £199.99
    Babylon 5 Complete Collection (42 disc set) - £72.50 (marketplace seller)
    Lost in Space Complete DVD Collection - RRP £99.99

    My orders for Curb Your Enthusiasm and Will & Grace are completely missing from my order list, despite being there earlier and receiving confirmation emails. Star Trek however, is still sitting there. What's going on?? :confused:

    Just had my Rome ship, all else in my account has disappeared (apart from Soprano's! - fingers crossed)
    I had 6 box sets ordered - Doctor Who s3, Laurel & Hardy, West Wing & Will & Grace have all been cancelled i assume (just gone from my account)

    Thought it might have been stuff that wasn't in stock cancelled, but Doctor Who was in stock when i ordered.

    Ah well, kudos to amazon for shipping some of them. Shame no email (so far) explaining what happened and the cancellations)
