Nice. Great to see an unboxing. I have coming but will be awhile. I am in the US and other than Amazon Germany, no one ships to US. I think JPC Media does. Anyway, I had to order thru a Group buy and is ordered, but I probably won't get for 5-6 months when they ship a bunch to US hub.
Also got the 2 Chucky and Texas Chainsaw Massacre Piece of Art releases.
Those I should be getting next week. They just arrived at US hub. 12 items.

Good to see more editions with an additional booklet that are not Mediabooks. I liked the Grindhouse tape/vhs-edition that came with the Zombie Magazine booklet instead of the poster. The booklet in these Piece of Art boxes it seems to have a better quality.

If I try an order this I won't get the age verification that you would do if the title was an 18?
For any of you members that might know.

No age verification required when I placed an order via JPC a month or two back. No shipping notice yet, but assuming that's because I also ordered another item due for release later this month.

Cheers for the info mate :thumbs:
I'll be grabbing a copy of this.
I ended up getting a copy of the Texas chainsaw over on ebay due to the problem with that age verification situation, so wasn't sure if there was going to be the same with this.

FYI, I managed to get around the age verification ordering from ofdb.de
I just emailed them a copy of my ID which allowed me to order Texas Chainsaw.
Worth keeping in mind for future orders.
