come on, why would they consider cancelling it and breaking their word if it sold out within an hour of preorder? thats still insanely good... maybe less insanely good in comparison but still lol.. most who have bought 1+4 will want a complete set, and scalpers will do the rest, i wouldnt worry too much

Yeah they're not gonna cancel 2 & 3 now. They'll be under contract with WB. If they put out Resurrections, they'll follow through with those 2. It's still an hour sellout, even if that isn't record time, it's still recouped the cash needed for a profit.

Made me laugh. Course the other 2 will go ahead. It shouldn’t even be a thought. Sell out is still a sell out lol

‘I think just 2 slips was a mistake. Both this and 4 don’t look very good imo. They made such a huge print run that it isn’t as valuable the “scalpers” are not stupid.
‘Matrix 4 isn’t worth more than retail and this won’t be either. Only the Boxset will have any value if I had to guess. The next two I doubt 1,500 copies of each slip will sell that well. Plus it’s the holidays, not the best time to ask collectors to shell out cash. This did sell out but I think they will have a problem selling the next 2, I’m sure they will do it but I just don’t see the demand if the most popular of thr quadrilogy by far isn’t getting collectors that excited.
Did the Group Buy on here even sell out? I know the OC sat around for a while.

Don't think it did sell out on here, still had plenty in stock of all 3.

They won't have a problem selling the other 2, I hated the artwork but I still bought it .
I need to complete the collection I got the OC for Resurrections now Matrix, so I need to complete it with Reloaded and Revolutions, even if the artwork will be bad.
If they had better artwork this would have sold out in seconds all 3 editions, Manta completely missed the mark.
They received backlash on all forums and on their Social media accounts

Wish they would go back to 3 slips, these gimmicks are not my thing, perhaps they are doing it because they have limited artwork to pick from?

I had to buy the most I could get in one order to accommodate people's requests on my local forum, so I got 1 One-Click, and 2 of each slips. Shipping was crazy $140, and since I was afraid it'd be gone in seconds, didn't stop to experiment.
Turns out if you order a One-Click separately, it's $50 for shipping, and same for 4 slips, so I could've saved $40.
There was that damn 'free' frame in the cart as well. Tested buying it with a One-Click - goes from 50 to 100 bucks. A 50 dollar 'free' frame, what a joke.
All aforementioned is to a US address.

Glad I did the group buy. It went on sale an hour earlier than in the past (presumably bc of the time change) and there’s no way I would have known that, much less managed to get myself out of bed to buy it.
Happened to me with Dune. I woke up around 7:10am expecting the sale to start at 8:00am. Jumped on here and started reading the comments, "OC secured" etc and realized the time difference caused me to miss out on it. I did get a DL copy before release for an added premium.
