    Hard to believe Second Sight would go super extravagant for the main box only to end using cheap cardboard digipacks for the discs. Let's not panic yet.

    With the amount of time Second Sight spent on this release I seriously doubt it's going to be fucked up, Plus this is Dawn of the Dead for crying out loud one of the holy grails of horror to be finally released in HD. Money well spent IMHO ;)

    They posted pictures somewhere where one could see that it is a digipack. It showed 2 plain black cardboard digipacks inside with no writing on the spines.
    I can't remember where I saw it but it was an official photo way back when the box was announced.

    Totally agree, and Second Sight have a good reputation with doing "large" multi-disc boxsets. Heimat is a prime example, and they know how to get them right. Plus if they rarely do mess something up, they issue replacement discs...and if you live in a country outside of the UK they will accommodate you with no problems.

    Well that's a relief, I thought for sure I'd click this thread and see Dawn of the Dead was delayed. They can take as long as they want with Martin...

    And Amazon.co.uk still isn't shipping the UHD to the US. I may have to roll the dice at another site even if it means spending more. And soon.

    Personally I would rather wait an additional three weeks to help ensure that everything turns out ok than have them try to rush to meet their original announced release date. I pre-ordered the Dawn set back in May as I'm sure many users here did so a few extra weeks is not an issue.

    I just really wish that labels wouldn't be so optimistic with their release dates and/or quick to announce them.

    Didn't the virus happen after their original announcement and date?

    Well after their original "late summer" (2019) announcement but before their announcement for October 26 2020.

    You can still get it at Zavvi.com, I think the only place in the US with this is Deep Discount but they only have the UHD set.

    You have to order it from elsewhere. Zavvi and Base ship the sets to the US.

    Diabolik had it for a limited time, and said they may have extras around the release date.

    So obvious they are making purchasing this set difficult.
