Amazon advertised the OD&D Reprint Box at about 40% of retail, so I preordered back in August. Sure, I hate the cover art on the new books, but I figured it would give me actual reading copies without needing to break out my Original Collector's Edition box.
Let's see - the said the release date was Dec 17, 2013 with the end of October update.
They repeated that release date with the end of November update.
Then my Christmas gift from Amazon was this email:
We're still trying to obtain the following item[s] you ordered on August 04, 2013 (Order# 002-37xxxxx-81xxxxx).
Wizards RPG Team "Premium Original Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Roleplaying Game (D&D Boxed Game)"
Still want it? We'll keep on trying. To keep your order for this item open, please click the link below. Otherwise, we'll cancel your order on January 24, 2014, if we haven't located it by then.Oh, and it shows out of stock on Amazon - was it ever "in stock"?
I know folks have copies - +Timothy Brannan has pictures on his blog today.
Anyone else have an unfulfilled order?
