For those who ordered direct from arrow store may have notice payment was taken on Monday but not had their orders dispatched yet

I contacted Arrow
I was told orders will be dispatching from tonight

Arrow distribution center has been very busy this week due processing a lot sale orders and next week new releases

I can understand this happening when sale is on as they would be getting lot more orders than would usually would have to process when no sale was running

My copy was shipped from zavvi the other day so I expect a Tuesday delivery. Why do I get the feeling we'll get a 4k announcement in the new year!

What bell end at Zavvi decides to post these in thin bubble mailers !!
it arrived today damage free but god knows how after dropping 4ft onto a wooden floor from the letterbox.
What the hell is up with this company these are collectors editions with a lovely slip.
Decided now going forward any collectors editions will now be purchased from Amazon at least I get an instant replacement and do not have to run the obstacle course of paying for another and awaiting refund.
Also free postage with my PRIME membership ..... goodbye Zavvi you really are a bunch of half brained toss pots at times.

Post is not delivered in Tuesdays here in Finland. Yeah, I know. But Amazon's parcel containing this and Nightbreed was delivered today. Post person rang the bell and gave the parcel and both movies in perfect condition. Excellent. Pic's later ! :thumbs:

My copy arrived today and undamaged in the same crappy mailer. To be fair one Zavvi are consistent at is sending items in **** mailers regardless of steelbooks or normal blu-rays. I have yet to get any Zavvi order in anything resembling secure packaging.

It's all about cutting costs. Obviously the volume of letter mail has dwindled over the years a lot, especially when nowadays the overwhelming majority of invoices an individual receives from various utilities, and for services and goods, are e-invoices.

Somewhat disappointing, nevertheless.

Fair enough but i would have thought parcel deliveries would have been very very high volume

Rep of Ireland An Post do Saturday delivery since 2017 for on-line orders (Parcels)
Only some locations get Saturday delivery and it varies as to when it happens.
It's mostly Amazon and registered parcels.

Zavvi orders it don't happen

That is a fact, yes - parcel post volume has grown a lot over the last years (or even decades). Finland Post tells us (and I'm inclined to believe them), that a huge part of the parcel traffic is small parcel imports from China (from eBay sellers and what not).

The international shipping costs for non-tracked items from China are so low that the share for the postal organizations at the recipient countries doesn't even begin to cover the handling costs.

Some discussion about the situation from retailers' perspective in Financial Times.

Almost all parcels from China arrive without a stop at customs (personal experience); they just don't have the resources to process them, unless the package is flagged for inspection for a specific reason.

My cousins across the border only ever get amazon deliveries on a Saturday but that's the only post they ever get at weekends. They never get Sunday post like I do. They can only dream of getting a parcel at 8pm on a Sunday night the way i do

Opening through that link doesn't work for me either; just seeing the 1st paragraph :LOL:

But, e.g., googling for the article's title, and clicking on the resulting link still displays the whole article.

Didn't realise the article was paywalled, and just went on with including the link. Sorry about that.

Hi guys
I'm having a problem getting the two recent arrow releases (American werewolf in London + Nightbreed) to play.
All 3 discs give the following error on my player:

ERROR
Cannot play this disc.
The disc does not meet the specifications

I have around 11 or 12 previous Arrow releases and not encountered this before!
Seems to be the 28th of Oct releases.
Hope Robocop is not the same....
