    Finally got a shipping confirmation today. :) How often does Arrow have these sales? Just curious as I have reward points for future use & sometimes the selling prices are too high on Amazon UK.

    Usually a couple times a year, so every 3 or 4 months or so. However, they are not always on every title. Sometimes only a handful of titles might be on sale. This last sale was their biggest selection so far.

    I received a shipping notice for one out of the six I ordered yesterday, haha. Like others stated, no worries here, they'll show up eventually, and I have hundreds (thousands?) of other discs I haven't watched yet!

    My order shipped in two parts. The first of which showed up Monday night; all Blu-ray: Lady Snowblood 1 & 2 (Steelbook), Fall in the House of Usher (Steelbook), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Steelbook), Deranged, The Cat O Nine Tails, Zombie Flesh Eaters. Still waiting on The Stuff, but it could be in my mailbox today, I haven't been home yet to check and have clocked 14+ hours so far at work today... So if not today, hopefully tomorrow or Monday at the latest.

    EDIT: Got The Stuff in the mail today after all.

    I received my order yesterday... took a good 14-15 days to arrive after getting the shipment confirmation email.

    I'm a little pissed off though. Zombie Flesh Eaters came with the defective "cut" (missing 6 seconds) disc. :mad: So much for that being solved after all this time. Now I'll see what they say about getting the correct disc...

    Woah wtf? Good quality control, Arrow. I ordered this back in August from amazon and it came with the corrected disc. I'm sure they'll replace it no problem.

    Ah shit. Really? Last I heard they'll send you a disc, you just have to pay $5 S&H. At that price I can live without the 6 seconds (nearly a dollar a second) since it's just the first 6 seconds of credits.

    Damn, I bought it too. I thought someone said Arrow's site had the new discs now so I went for it. I wouldn't have pulled the trigger had I known. I'm thinking about returning the whole thing as defective instead.

    Yes, it's definitely the defective disc that I received in mine. The running time is 1:31:11 (6 seconds short) and the disc's recording date is 11/13/2012. I also checked the unique Disc ID in DVDProfiler, and it matches the original uncorrected disc.

    As long as they'll send me the corrected disc...no problem. I ain't paying more for their mistake though! I guess these things happen, but it's lame that it's still out there well over a year after the issue was noted, and coming direct from the studio.

    I got a reply back earlier today, and they said they would send out a free replacement disc.

    They said that it was unusual, since all copies were supposed to have been repackaged with the updated replacement discs... so maybe mine was just from a fluke batch.

    Mine's running time is also 1:31:11. I watched the end of the opening credits and there is the "jump" cut between instead of a smooth cut. Kinda like the old battered prints with American titles spliced in any old way.

    I doubled checked online and the boat-gate disc's inner ring says A0102058342-B912 100 and mine says that.

    The corrected disc has an inner ring: A0102067063-B911 100

    They'd been selling the faulty disc themselves for awhile now it would seem and it's pretty douchey of them. I suppose it makes it easier to say, "Yep they have the bad disc alright cause we sold it to them."

    I might ask for a replacement on that principle alone. Plus my case was damaged on Zombi 2 so I'm a little unhappy about that too (though I doubt the replacement comes in a case).

    ^^^ well that sucks. It sounds like mine was hardly just a fluke then. :eek:

    My cases arrived okay... but they were just packaged in a thin bubble wrap mailer, so I can see how damage could have occurred.
