    Got my reply email first thing this morning. So far so good. I can't wait to see the corrected version.

    Replacement disc arrived today. Exactly one week after contact. Popped it in earlier and did a quick preview and it looked amazing, the first release was nothing to sneeze at, but it appears that this is a big improvement! Getting ready to spin the disc in full now, plus the extras which I have been holding off on watching.

    Forgot to report back here. Got my package from amazon like a week ago and yeah, it's the incorrect disc. Guess I better get in contact with Arrow.

    I dont know why you guys are avoiding the replacement. Im half tempted to order this just to have the B/W opening disc as a curiousity. Consider it an extra!

    amazon.co.uk is still shipping the original, B&W version. I ordered from them last week, it arrived today, and it's the incorrect version. So i sent arrow an email. hopefully it doesn't take too long.

    I highly doubt arrow films did a recall on this, they`ll just be shipping out the corrected disc when contacted by customers. I bought this the other week, sent an email to them on the sunday night, and received my corrected disc on the tuesday !

    Great service from a great company.

    forgot to follow up with this, but my disc showed up about a week after i sent off the email. it was in a paper sleeve, but there was no damage that i can see, and it plays fine. so i'm very happy.

    on a related note, i recently found that disc 1 of my Iron Man blu ray flat out won't read on any player. i contacted paramount, and while they were a little slower than arrow, with a few more hoops to jump through and forms to fill out (via email), they just contacted me to say that a replacement disc is in the mail, and should be here in a few weeks.

    Weird, I ordered from amazon.co.uk and when I emailed to get the replacement disc, I got a response of "We've discontinued that program." They hope I enjoy the film as it stands.

    So buyer beware, they are not doing it anymore.

    Good News!!! I received an email from Arrow saying that even though the program is closed, they will honor it for a while longer. Since some retailers are still receiving the old transfer, instead of the corrected version. Unfortunately it won't be happening soon as the Arrow Disc manufacturing facility was burned down in the recent London riots. So it's partial good news.

    What's the latest here on what Amazon UK is shipping? Can anyone confirm they've finally converted to the fixed version?

    Is there anyway to tell you have the corrected version without opening it? Like a UPC or something?

    Not sure if it is the same UPC as the black and white opening, but I received the correct sepia tone version from Amazon UK with UPC 5027035006642.

    I bought a copy from Kim's in NYC this last week and it was (thankfully) the corrected version.

    Such a sweet package they put together for this film. I can't wait to pore through it.
