    Gonna disagree on your math, as a lot of people probably got both Mausoleum AND The Children, and I'm counting that as one "order". The 3000 number is the proper baseline, as that's the minimum numbers of orders they need to ship out. Of course, anyone that did not order Mausoleum (like say, ME), increases that 3000 number.

    I received my total BF order in the mail today safe and sound:

    Cutting Class (All 5 Slipcovers BF flash pre-order)
    Mausoleum (Slipcover)
    The Children (Slipcover)
    Beware My Brethren (Slipcover)
    Sudden Fury (Slipcover)
    Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song (Slipcover)
    Sugar Cookies

    I now have every VS Slipcover again! :p

    The Mausoleum Slip does looks really great... love the embossing on the front/back/spines. I'm not really sure which Cutting Class Slip I like the best...but it is awesome that all 5 Slips have embossed elements on them.

    Good point. In my defense, my degree was in Humanities. But, I have been doing more math now that I have to help my kid with common core. :D

    3,000 is still a large number (the speed to which it was reached, VS has said took them by surprise). I remember doing bulk mailings years ago, and even stuffing a few hundred envelopes was time-consuming. I don't envy the folks at VS.

    And technically, it's 3001 because I can absolutely guarantee there's one order they have to ship that doesn't include Mausoleum.

    I'm guessing there should be an image there that concerns me?

    Shit. I suck. The image is supposed to be a screenshot from VS's Twitter account where they took a photo of the box for their 100,000th order. :eek:

    Finally got my order yesterday, and it came with a little bonus: Memories of Miss Aggie had a slipcover, even though I ordered the regular edition 'cause the slipcover was allegedly sold out. There's probably some real angry Miss Aggie fan somewhere who ordered the slipcover but got my regular edition instead.

    At least it didn't come with a used Kewpie doll.

    Guessing that will make more sense after I've seen the movie.

    Oh, and yeah, these slipcovers (my first time seeing a VS slip) are everything they're cracked up to be.

    Maybe it just the fact that they released the film which I have been waiting for a long time, but the Mausoleum is one of best slips I've seen from them.

    I think they hooked me up with slipcovers for several that showed sold out, but I've been too lazy to confirm. Receiving 16 VS titles in 1 box brought back some of that little kid "Holy crap, it's CHRISTMAS!" feeling.

    Actually shocked that Volume #4 & #5 ... 5 Films 5 Years isn't even flirting with being sold out. Volume #1 (the porn collection) sold out a while ago and Volume #2 is down to 90 copies.

    Maybe people that are already fans of those films bought the original DVD releases (which sometimes contained extras, and the 5 Years compilations have none of them)?
    Sure you get the upgrade to Blu but it's the exact same transfer, only in HD. No further restoration was done to the 5 Years films. I bought them as a "sampler" to VS, as I didn't have any of their releases already and this was a good way to immediately add 10 (at a time) VS movies to my collection.

    By the way, is anyone else doing the Vinegar Syndrome online checklist? And more importantly, who's brave enough to list the VS porn they own and/or want? I am. Here's my list:
