This won't be sent in jiffy mailer by Amazon or any other retailerI see he got this from arrow usa? I thought arrow was only in uk or do they use others to sell there products in usa.
For weight and size shipping box does not come that much bigger than edituon but yes nice thought with layer of bubble around edition.
Surely this set is to big for amazon to stick in a jiffy bag lol.
But would love to know how there one sends.
Did someome say before that older orders that was released and shipped, that no longer ship get upgraded to faster shipping at no cost?
I know im prime in my countries amazon and you can only order when they come into stock and get free shipping.
A recent order they sent through my amazon and prime came very fast dhl express, but another by dpd is taking much longer.
So its probably anyone's guess how they will pack this or even the method of shipping they use.
I know he never bought i uk release its usa release. I have had this pre ordered since feb on amazon usa site and zavvi.This won't be sent in jiffy mailer by Amazon or any other retailer
You are posting in the USA release thread

You can also order Arrow USA releases from MVD the arrow films distributor in USA
Have you not noticed before from the threads I done some Arrow Video releases are USA/Canada only
Arrow Video USA was launched in 2014 initially using a Indiegogo campaign.
In 2015 Arrow Video started to do releases USA
Distributor for Arrow Video USA releases is MVD who provide USA retailers the releases.
Some Arrow Video USA releases are not available from Arrow Video in UK due to rights issues on some releases.
The same applies to some UK releases are not available for release in USA

USA releases don't have BBFC age rating
Arrow Films UK website only sell the UK releases
Guy in unboxing video has USA release not the UK release
He did not order from Arrow Films UK Webstore.
Did Amazon USA not add Import Fee Deposit in your order at checkoutI know he never bought i uk release its usa release. I have had this pre ordered since feb on amazon usa site and zavvi.
As usa exchange rate is in my favour now im going with the usa edition.
I canceled my zavvi order as been let down too many times with them half arsed packing they often do.
If exchange rates go against my favour then i may consider canceling usa order and grab elsewhere.
Arrow uk would have been an option but there shipping is just too much these days.
Obviously this guys edition is not from amazon usa as they are not shipping yet. But to be honest its a bit or miss with them amazon usa what stuff are sent in.
I know people who have had items in boxes very well packed and my stuff in a jiffy bag trashed. Yes this does not fit in a bag but from personal experience they have sent me stuff in bags.
These days its very limited who still sends here and i have a few options but its picking the right one.
Yes zavvi might pack this very well but it be a first they probably just stick this in a black bag would not surprise me.
Amazon UK don't use jiffy mailers for Box SetsYou're a brave man. I wouldn't make that bet. Have you seen the size of some of the jiffy bags Amazon uses?
Yes had plenty big editions about 3 or 4 yrs ago never seen bags so big with collector sets in them and was very annoying. Even had a 36 disc set with clear protective sleeve over the edition again not mint.You're a brave man. I wouldn't make that bet. Have you seen the size of some of the jiffy bags Amazon uses?
The Gamera box set weighs a lot more than Criterion Godzilla Box setYes had plenty big editions about 3 or 4 yrs ago never seen bags so big with collector sets in them and was very annoying. Even had a 36 disc set with clear protective sleeve over the edition again not mint.
Yes they are good to deal with but hate getting items with issues.
I just had godzilla set shipped too like 10 days to arrive and was in a box within box which i was hoping for as others had same when it came out.
I have another order not sent dhl express like godzilla but god knows what that will be in.
Its no longer in stock and i bet they have sent in a jiffy bag i added an extra title in hope it boxed.
A few years ago Amazon UK shipped me the Sculpting Time Tarkovsky box set in a postal satchel. Amazon UK and not a third party seller. The box set in question. It was probably a one-off incident but it did happen.Amazon UK don't use jiffy mailers for Box Sets
Never had a Jiffy mailer used with any of my Amazon UK orders and I been using Amazon UK since 2006
I get 2-3 parcels a week from Amazon UK delivered to Rep of Ireland
Amazon USA will use a Box for this edition due to the size and weight involved of the box set
Weight of box set is nearly 4KG if the guy doing the unboxing video got weight estimate correct
It has 3 books inside the hardcover slipbox
They won't be using Jiffy mailer with this release
Have you ever ordered a big size book that weigh over 3KG from Amazon USA to be shipped to a international address
Amazon USA yes have used Jiffy mailer on some small box sets and slipcover and steelbook releases
I ordered from Amazon UK not Amazon USA
Yes there is a gst same as your vat charge of 10% its like $13 or there about and i selected standard shipping at the time which was 9.99 or something.Did Amazon USA not add Import Fee Deposit in your order at checkout
If not what's the import treshold in Australia for Tax to be paid on Imports
Amazon USA will use UPS or DHL so if tax not paid already with Amazon UPS/DHL very likely will request tax paymant when delivering
If I was to order from Amazon USA price is $125.99 + $28.90 shipping + Import fee deposit $38.69 = $193.48
In Euro's that's €168.90
Ordering UK edition direct from Amazon UK/HMV/Zavvi is cheaper £109.99
Arrow Films UK webstore early bird pre order price was £110 before it price increased to £125
My Amazon UK order free shipping as I'm a prime member for UK edition in Euro will be €129.98
I ordered 10 books from Amazon USAA few years ago Amazon UK shipped me the Sculpting Time Tarkovsky box set in a postal satchel. Amazon UK and not a third party seller. The box set in question. It was probably a one-off incident but it did happen.
Amazon USA regularly ship me large heavy books in jiffy bags. I've even had them stuff multiple large hardcovers into the one jiffy bag. Think Taschen kind of stuff.
I received my Criterion Godzilla set in just the book mailer by itself and not inside another box. In fact, now that I think about it, it was probably pre-packed because it had large stickers on it saying when to put on shelf for sale. It arrived in mint condition though.
There's no standard when it comes to Amazon packaging. It's luck of the draw. At any rate, I can only shop at Amazon AU and US Amazon nowadays so my selection is pretty limited. Because of this (and to save myself the trouble), I generally take my business elsewhere when possible.
