    Watchmen vinyl shipping and availability discussion

    Oh my god, Target keeps sending me new estimated delivery dates then delaying it every single day. Oh, great it'll be here monday, wait.... Tuesday, wait..... Wednesday, wait..... Thursday? Why on earth would they be doing this beyond to make me incredibly irritated?

    Just scored Vol. 3 from Barns & Nobel. They are shipping it to me. This is the version with the DE hype sticker, now I have both.

    After getting dicked around forever by USPS, my Vol. III copies arrived today.

    ISO of two copies of Vol. I forever, probably.

    I ordered from Target and mine came with the DE sticker and the (printed) "handwritten" looking sticker. My Vol. 2 took forever and actually came after my Vol. 3 arrived, but at least they didn't cancel my order like Amazon did to some people, which would have really pissed me off.

    Exact same experience. Target. With DE Sticker and "handwritten" Sticker. Vol 2 arrived after Vol 3. Over-all, I got all 3 records from Target, shipped for a total $50 and all 3 arrived MINT. Thanks Target! So glad I didn't order from Amazon, like Trent wanted us to. I like Amazon, but sounds like they didn't have enough stock, and they were more expensive!

    yea I’d do the same if I get my copies from Src, amazon and my local record store copy (that ones already paid for & told it will show up from his supplier) for vol 1 & 2 for what I paid.

    Walked into Barnes & Noble yesterday, and walked out with a copy of Vol. 2 and 3. I'm always amazed that people still overlook BN.

    They also have all of their Bowie vinyl 50 percent off, or did before today (Sunday).

    I'm honestly surprised the Amazon experience has been as clunk-ass as it has. I ordered from Target because of the 3-for-2 pricing, expected it to be hit or miss, and the whole thing turned out great for me. I got my records a little bit later than most people who ordered from Amazon did, but I'm patient.

    Same. When I was waiting for my order of vol 1 from Target I started getting worried that it was going to get canceled and I was regretting not just ordering from Amazon. In the end I'm glad I went with Target and everything ended up working out.

    Agree with this 100%. I really think the delay goofiness was completely the fault of the distributor and not Target. Distro delays don’t explain Amazon canceling orders, though.

    Target cancelled my Vol. 1 order last week after 2 months of sending weekly emails asking me to approve a shipping delay. So some people lucked out. Some still wound up with nothing.

    Did you approve it? I got one of those...approved it and never got another one. Plenty of emails about them pushing back my delivery date, though.

    Approved it multiple times. I guess they just gave up on sourcing copies.

    Dang, well that sucks. Hopefully you can find one for a reasonable price if you haven't already.

    - Volume 1: Amazon.fr cancelled my order.
    - Volume 2: Third-party seller on amazon.co.uk (Newtownvideo_EU) can't provide a tracking number for Vol.2 - said the parcel might have been lost in the mail
    - Volume 3: Merchbar.com said the order is delayed but they still expect to be able to fulfill the order at some point

    Really sucks to be in Europe, I might end up empty-handed after all. Let's all hope for a repress!

    I pre-ordered the set from Amazon when it was announced. Got Volumes 1 and 2 on time, but Vol 3 has been pushed back like 4 times now. Just got another email saying it was slipping to this weekend after it was supposed to be arriving today. Bah

    My Vol. 3 is still under delivery date pending :/
    I feel like I may have preordered too late and they'll end up cancelling the order, which wouldn't be surprising.

    First day of the vol. 1 available for order, I went to my local store and asked them to bring everything in. Vol. 3 showed up but 1 and 2 are still coming.

    Got a email saying my item has been delayed from Amazon.ca for Vol 2. Now I noticed the release date is now January 24 and I expect my order between February 13th- March 20. Now what the hell is going on. My With Teeth still doesnít have a shipping date and I noticed Bird Box date has changed to January 17. This has to be the worst release in Canada in my books for Watchmen. Like why canít Universal get things fixed for this. I better get my Watchmen vol 1 & 2.

    Well spotted. Not for download though and you just get a 30sec snippet albeit you can choose which snippet to listen to!

    If you direct link to the mp3, you get a 2 minute snippet/edit. You can drag the streaming player back to 0:00 and capture the whole thing.

    me they have enough units to cover orders but will be another 2 weeks for it so I’m guessing January 24. Looks like I might get extra copies of vol 1 & 2.

    I have vol 1 & 2 and they will have enough units for all orders so Iím guessing for all 3. So Iíll receive mine from them plus my Amazon.ca Vol 2 and my local vol 1. At least I can just sell my extras.

    That sucks about your Vol 3.
