    Hi everyone,

    I see from the other threads that ScreenThyme are already shipping R1 Star Wars (and I'm kicking myself for not ordering it from them!) but can anyone tell me which UK online retailer is the best bet for getting the R2 Star Wars DVDs *early*... based on previous releases?

    I think it's a real shame that most DVDs are released on a Monday... depriving us all of a full weekend in which to enjoy the DVD (and in this case, it would take a full weekend to view EVERYTHING on the disks!)

    Maybe I should just ask my boss for Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st off work? ;)

    Cheers,
    J.B.

    I've noticed Play.com seem to ship early sometimes. I got Shaun of the Dead a couple of days early.

    Everyone of my pre-orders from Play.com has arrived the Saturday before release so I have had the weekend to watch them and when most were the TNG or DS9 Boxsets you need a whole weekend to watch everything so if you put your order with them you have a good chance of having it next Saturday.

    Yup.... my bad, <D'OH!>

    Looks like play.com is the best bet to get R2 Star Wars in time for the weekend, then?

    Cheers,

    Play.com are now "processing" my set. Hopefully that means it'll be sent out very soon & I'll get it on Saturday.

    Still "processing". I don't hold much hope for it arriving before Monday now.
