Would it be too crazy to ask if anyone has ordered from amazon(.co.uk or .com) and if they've had theirs shipped? I'm assuming Warners will send out their own customers, but after hassle with credit card payments, decided Amazon would be easier, but no joy in terms of dispatch... yet.

Mine arrived yesterday (20th) in Sao Paulo- Brazil. Delivered by the post office at home with no additional taxes or customs.
Really enjoying BIG FISH.

Did anyone else in Australia order the Elfman-Burton box? I received notification that it was posted on March 30 but it hasn't arrived yet. A photo of the packaging that was posted on the FSM message board had me worried because the packaging did not seem sturdy enough given the rough handling that packages sent halfway around the world to Australia seem to receive, given the condition in which some, much smaller boxes, have arrived at my door.

My box arrived late on the afternoon of April 19. I had to sign for it, so WEA were certainly painstaking in their delivery arrangements. Came from Germany and the packaging was first class. Have only had time to play Edward Scissorhands and Pea Wee's Big Adventure, plus a quick look through the book, but I'm satisfied with the music box.

Still nothing. Going to give it to the 30th April, one month since it shipped, and then contact Warners.

Yes, it finally arrives.

It looks great and aside from a few marks on the corners of the lid the box is fine. The contents are just amazing and even a brief flick through the book shows it to be an outstanding piece of work.

Only downside is that the zeotrope doesn't freely spin around (the swirly bit on the other side does) and the music chip doesn't work. I wonder if it is worth contacting Warner and seeing if they can send me a replacement lid. I sure as hell don't want to have to return the whole set now I finally have it.

Im actually getting worried about Amazon. Amazon keeps pushing it up a few weeks at a time. Orig date mid february. It has that feel of something that will never come.

Check through this thread. I had the same issue with the music chip. It's fixed by removing a few screws.

Yes, thanks. I unscrewed it and immediately saw the problem. The battery case was partly open, so the battery was loose, also the speaker had become unstuck from the case and had gone underneath the zeotrope hence why that didn't spin properly. Easily fixed...

... Except that in doing so the wires detached themselves from the speaker. So, when I get around to it in a few days I just need to get my mini soldering iron and just reconnect the wires to the speaker. I also think I will take the time to get one of those double sided sticky pads to put the speaker on so that it doesn't vibrate against the wooden lid.

So, a few running repairs which really shouldn't have been necessary if greater care had been taken over during construction but only minor touches and overall I am extremely happy with the box.

Consider it some weekend tinkering in the garage smile

Have those that ordered the non-collector's edition directly from WB gotten shipping confirmation? Because Amazon just notified me that the release has been delayed, and I'm wondering if I could get it from WB sooner?

The second round is on its way. Got a shipping confirmation yesterday from Warner Bros. UPS says it will be delivered today. That is fast.

Good. Maybe my amazon order won't be delayed again.

I meant to say this before. Thanks to whoever had the idea of making the opening the box video. I bet I would have gone wrong in a number of ways without it.

I have to admit this is probably THE most impressive film music item I have ever seen.

Indeed. I only miss a proper light source put in the middle of the zoetrope cylinder.
This is necessary to fully appreciate the magic of coming life strips, otherwise it's all in the dark and not so enjoyable.

aside from the terrific music content, i was a little disappointed with the build quality of the box itself. it kind of reminded me of cheap furniture made of compressed particleboard where the faux wood finish was paper and poorly glued on, leaving several areas that hung loose. but the CDs are great, so i guess it evens out.
