I had my Bloody Terror on pre-order from Zavvi.
I think they have held back sending sets out due to the problems. When I enquired I was told that they had no date when the sets would be sent out.
So, I managed to cancel the order.
Although I saw a set in HMV yesterday, I have been told that some of HMV have taken the sets off the shelves??

Decided to take the plunge. And now off to ebay it goes. Sorry, but I hate those sleeves. Look cheap as ****. Plus, some sets the printing is anything but straight on the back. It looks even worse than the photo shows. Just awful.

Yeah have to agree.The package as a whole is awesome,but
the sleeves are an abombination in comparison to all their previous boxsets.
Wasted it's chance for release of the year.

I'll be picking up the regular releases as well.

Wish to **** I'd never sold my VS releases!

I've always been happy to wait for a quality product, but from what I regularly read online, others seem to be a lot less patient.
Well one way to avoid this is stop giving dates out for release until 100% certain happy with the print etc, or give a release bit later than planned and if all goes well they can announce they be bringing it forward. Just a idea

I found that the easiest way to out the sleeves back in the case is to have it sittinf flat while you put them in. I can see the sleeves getting damaged after a while otherwise. Iím definitely pick up the regular releases after they get reissued .

Yeah iíve seen people with the same as mine and others with it the opposite way.

I know most people will say ďfirst world problemsĒ, but at £50 itís somewhat annoying.

Exactly.

I'm sure a lot of people don't have huge amounts of disposable income. I live alone and have to run a house for example and i don't have masses so fifty pounds on one item i'd be having buyers remorse immediately, then seeing the off printing and crappy cases would make it even worse.

I'm glad I was able to cancel my order.
I'm finished with it now and don't want it anymore.
