    Hard to say at the moment it's still available with all retailers and also to order direct from powerhouse films it's limited to 6,000
    I would order as soon as you have available funds as it's risky to wait for a price drop with this release a price drop might happen but best to not risk it.

    This is a release that's a must have for me it's just the waiting for delivery that's getting to me if I had of kept me amazon order I would have had delivery 4 weeks ago I only cancelled amazon order because Zavvi took payment first

    My replacement for previous zavvi shipped on 26 June that did not arrive was despatched on Friday 21st July if all ok with the postal carrier I should have delivery by tomorrow or by Monday 31st anything beyond that it's another delivery lost in the postal system

    My previous two zavvi orders shipped recently Beauty and the Beast Steelbook was delivered in 5 days and 12 Angry Men (Criterion
    Collection) was delivered in 4 days

    Personally I'd say you should be ok to wait, but it's like Paul said... if it's something you really want, then it's probably best not to risk it and order as soon as you have the funds, especially as a price drop may never happen.

    The current price is pretty decent anyway to be fair, as it's a nice set and the films are of course classics (or so I've been told). I actually just watched the first film yesterday and really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to checking out the others.

    I hope you're able to pick it up soon anyway mate. :)

    I sill not yet got delivery this is now getting very annoying
    A replacement was shipped on the 21st July

    10 days have passed since the replacement was shipped and 35 days have passed since the original order was shipped

    @zavvi
    What postal carrier was used if you can find out for me as something is wrong as most my orders arrive in 4-7 days with most been delivered in 5 days

    The original order and the replacement has not been delivered so something wrong has been done for neither to have arrived yet

    Only a few titles are £14.99 each
    Some are 2 for £25 these are the titles that have have been at that price from original launch on HMV

    Later releases not part of the 2 for £25
    Most of them as in 16 of the title releases are £19.99 each at HMV

    Most of the £19.99 each titles on HMV website are £15.99 on Zavvi Website

    Search "powerhouse film" on HMV website and there are lots and lots of their INDICATOR range of films at £14.99 (no special sale offer) but your right there are some ones at £19.99.

    I bought Castle Keep recently, I thought it was a great film, more than just your usual run of the mill war film.

    HMV has 2 pages of titles
    13 titles are available at £14.99 each with Christine Sold Out no longer available
    16 of the titles are £19.99 each

    Zavvi excluding the box sets are £15.99 each with newer releases at £16.99 that Zavvi still have available and with working 10% discount code work out cheaper with the £15.99 titles

    The 19.99 titles on HMV are £15.99 at Zavvi that Zavvi still have available

    From INDICATOR via Twitter:
    "New, corrected stock can be identified by ltd ed numbers 4,001-6,000 on rear of the bellyband. If you have one of these, it is the new disc."

    "If you no longer have your receipt, write your name & address on paper and place it next to bellyband with # visible and send us a photo"

    I got the replacement Blu-ray disc on Monday

    It don't have markings on the disc to let you know it's a different disc so make sure you put aside the older disc so you don't get confused which disc is the new one

    Picture quality good improvement

    Paul - did you look at the disc?
    Is there a sceamingly obvious difference between them?
    Just curious.
    (Sent in my request for replacement disc yesterday, but I had not even looked at the movie yet).
