    So do these guys give you a confirmation when they ship an item. Still haven't gotten anything saying Happy Bday to Me has shipped.

    Sorry can't say. I've only order stuff from them through Amazon.

    I was initially excited when this label was introduced. I thought to myself, "any label that plans on giving movies like 'Happy Birthday To Me' the deluxe treatment will be a label to watch". I'm still excited for the possibilities but I think HBTM was probably thrown into one of those "take it or leave it" deals. Indicator treated it well but there hasn't been a comparable release from them since. John Carpenter's Vampires and Christine were good too but they're more mainstream titles. Still, they're cranking out the classics in very attractive collector's editions that are sure to make fans of those films very happy.

    Well, I was wrong about the Registered Mail package that was coming here. It was actually the Hammer House of Horror Blu-ray set from Network in the UK, but they never gave any tracking number on their "shipped" emails.

    So I'm still waiting on the Sinbad replacement disc...

    Interesting this latest batch (4 releases) say Region B instead of Region Free. I guess these would be the first to not be Region Free from Indicator ever.

    The listing for The Fortune, a Sony title, specifies that it is Region Free. The other three titles seem to be licensed from Universal, which would be a new licensor for Indicator / Powerhouse catalog. I can only assume that this is a mandate per their licensing agreement with Universal.

    My Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger replacement blu-ray just showed up. I haven't watched it yet, but it's here. Indicator shipped them in normal blu-ray cases without artwork.

    Guess it'll just show up. Surely it would have shipped by now.

    Curious, was that shipment from the original time you emailed about the replacement disc(when first announced) or the follow up email like Katatonia & I(we never received ours) sent out in the last week in October.

    It's the original shipment. The date on the envelope shows 9/29. I'm guessing someone brought it across the Atlantic in a rowboat. Now the same guy is probably hand-delivering all of them on foot. He should definitely get to you in the next few months.

    Damn, that's slow from the UK. I've had packages take that long from Amazon UK and others before, but not in a long time. Was it sent by Royal Mail? They are generally the worst.

    It didn't appear to be Royal Mail. All of the labels were different than anything I've seen from Amazon UK.

    Good news! :) My Sinbad disc just arrived in the mail...finally. It was sent 2nd Class, and shows where it was shipped 9/29 on the shipping label, just like shape22 stated above.

    It came packaged in a standard blue HD Slim case in a bubble mailer. The actual "postage" label indicates it was mailed from the Czech Republic of all places...which is probably why these are taking so long. I have no idea why they are being shipped from there and not the UK, but that's what the postage indicates as its origin.

    So to those who still haven't received their replacement disc...it should be coming any day now.

    Guess what was in my mailbox when I got home today? :) The same thing, mailed from Czech Republic. Looks like we all jumped the gun on not getting the replacement disc. Just took a long time, that's all. Kinda feel bad Indicator had to ship out another one.
