Has anyone gotten the set? I haven't got mine and I feel that I've been screwed over.

I have. For what it's worth, Arrow has confirmed a second edition without the books and comics is coming later this year.

You know, that's seriously not cool. I really wanted this limited edition cause I love the package design and all the sweet extras provided by Matt Frank and I really wanted to have that last hope story to read and own. Then barely half a day when it's released, it's sold out real fast and never to come back and i get told to just get the vanilla release when it comes later. Say what you want about criterion but at least they understand the fanbase well enough that they make sure they will meet the demand to Their customers. A total shame.

Everyone had the same opportunities to order it. I'm sorry you missed out. But don't blame Arrow because you weren't quick enough to snatch it up in time.

Actually, I was able to preorder it before the release date but my order is still on "order received" on Amazon and got very little information. Monster island buddies is in the same boat as me so it's not just me.

In fact,lots of people reported the same issue that they did ordered it, but either got cancelled or in limbo. Arrow completely underestimated the large amount of preorders and is rather handling it poorly.

That sucks, man. This seems to happen a lot though. The BBC have the same problem over here in the UK with their Doctor Who Collection sets for the classic 63-89 series. You have to preorder it just to have a chance of even owning it, and even then it's not 100% guaranteed that you'll get a copy depending on how much stock there is.

"Arrow completely underestimated the large amount of preorders and is rather handling it poorly."

No they didn't. It was always limited to 5000 copies in the U.S.

Your trouble is with Amazon, not Arrow. The former is the one that's responsible for taking your order which it can't or won't fulfill.

Omg yes, more Gamera films in the UK and on blu-ray too, I need this. I wonder how many films will be on the set, cause at the moment we only have Gamera 2 and Gamera 3 from the Heisei trilogy over here.

Oh yeah, the British dub! I always forget about that, despite its beautiful techno music. 😅
