    Ah yeah, the wonderful postal service! :p I've had similar things happen with Priority Mail before. It'll probably show an update soon though.

    I'm still waiting for my order too. I mentioned up-thread that there was a flag on my order which delayed it by a day but I guess Ronin doesn't ship on weekends. Order placed Wednesday July 5, Ronin contacted me and my order was cleared for processing Thursday July 6, but I only got the email saying order was shipped on Monday July 10. And then it still took until the 12th before there was any activity on the USPS tracking site - though I find their tracking process accuracy pretty hit and miss. It looks like it should get here today or tomorrow but that's much longer than normal.

    Have they always shipped from Kentucky? Their website lists a Los Angeles physical or mailing address and I've always got past orders so quickly I assumed that's where they were shipping from. Never paid attention to the shipping labels.

    I'm fairly sure they always have come shipped from Kentucky, or at least have for quite a while now. Kentucky has a ton of fulfillment centers for various retailers for whatever reason.

    I think the Independence Day holiday may have thrown a wrench in the shipping process wheel, at least I thought I'd read that on another forum. I was really looking forward to watching my copy of One Dark Night this weekend but it may not arrive today. Oh, well.

    Ugh, my order finally came today but required signature confirmation. And of course it was the one day the mail came early and I wasn't home to sign for it! Did everyone else's orders require a signature? I shouldn't complain since it's added security but I'm getting frustrated with all the delays getting this order.

    Finally was able to pick up my order today and got one of the One Dark Night magnets. Anyone get a Kingdom of the Spiders magnet and want to trade?

    There is no Kingdom Of The Spiders magnet. Just One Dark Night.

    Apparently they did some Kingdom of the Spiders magnets too. I saw pictures on Facebook. [​IMG]

    :eek: I wonder how/who got those? They definitely weren't advertised anywhere. The One Dark Night magnet was the only one ever advertised on Ronin at least.

    As much as I dig the alternate title, I Don't Want to Be Born, I've skipped through this and found it difficult to get into. Easy pass.

    I like the Blu-ray but was disappointed with the audio problem. Humongous is a personal favorite and has had a history of subpar home video presentations, and it's unfortunate that a seemingly fixable defect mars this otherwise solid upgrade.

    But hey, it's a Scorpion release which means they'll probably do a new scan and rerelease it in a couple of years anyway.

    Glad to hear about the new scan, this is one of my most wanted Fulci titles and I don't remember being impressed by what I've seen of the German BD.

    ...and we've solved the mystery of the Kingdom Of The Spiders magnets. They're now available on the Ronin website.
