    A few amazon customers got delivery already and you been one of them but a lot not had the orders shipped yet
    Amazon replied to some customers that they are waiting on delivery of the stock and will ship on Wednesday

    It's not the first time this been happening a lot with amazon and powerhouse films releases I ended up cancelling some orders with amazon a few months ago and got from HMV instead

    HMV and Zavvi have been getting stock before amazon most times for some reason

    I guess they've been selling pretty well then if Amazon have to order more in.

    I hope yours arrives soon mate! It's a pretty nice set... and yes, the box is hard/sturdy card. :thumbs:

    Paul when did you place your order with Zavvi?
    I placed mine on the 13th April, but still no movement and order states 'awaiting stock'. I messaged Zavvi and await their reply-bot answer but the listing now shows 'sold out'.
    I've now placed an order with amazon in case zavvi cancels my order.:dunno:

    The sold out is more likely due to stock not showing on their system
    Once release date arrives a release will auto list as sold out on Zavvi website

    When Zavvi get more stock it will then show in stock

    Powerhouse films looks like they despatch to retailers stock at different stages instead of all arrive same time

    I pre ordered when it was first live to order on Zavvi

    As far as I know powerhouse films not sold out yet

    Has your debit/credit card been charged yet

    I not got delivery yet of my Zavvi order
    It was dispatched on Monday 26th June and I expected delivery at the earliest to arrive by last Friday or at least by Today

    The dispatch email has estimated delivered between 10th - 11th July bust that's just Zavvi estimated 2 weeks period I get with all my orders

    I usually get delivery of my orders by Monday when dispatched on Wed/Thur/Fri the previous week
    Hopefully will be delivered by tomorrow

    I hope this not doing a round trip around the world like some orders in the past when for some reason was shipped to wrong country

    I will have to wait 21 days from June 26th before Zavvi will do anything if I contact them after 11th July

    I don't like Box Sets taking more than usual delivery time as more risk of getting damaged

    happy days. :) just adding to @Noodles shots with a few more of my own, now that this has arrived. @Punky Partridge i emailed zavvi last week and they said they were sorry for the delays, but not much more than that, then i got my dispatch email. hope you and @paulboland @snow flake have got yours now, or at least an email?

    it's a lovely set. :thumbs: the remasters are as good as they can be expected to be, really, and unlike on the recent Jason & The Argonauts release, the DVD versions in the double play releases have the same print as the blu ray. i've not bought an Indicator set before, and i am very impressed. everything is bright, clear, in a nice design that fits the films. :happy:

    cover shots:
    open films (including the reversible covers):
    the extras are particularly extensive, and Whovians will be interested in a 37 minute interview with everyone's favourite madman Tom Baker which covers his whole career, as well as Golden Voyage, including a big section on "Doctor Who." here's the full list:
    the booklet is paperback, but perfect bound, extensive and an excellent combination of good photos, original drawings, interviews and more. booklet pics:
    overall, a fine set, and still available on zavvi and also on amazon at time of posting.

    No delivery yet
    As expected Zavvi told me to wait 21 days

    I will be contacting them again on the 17th July if not arrived before then
    I doubt it will arrive before the 17th it's lost in the postal system as far as I'm concerned and more likely been sent to wrong country or address label got damaged during transit and it's doing a trip around the world

    Orders from Zavvi to my address on average only takes 4-5 days with 10 days max with the odd order
