Since they refused to package this correctly to preserve its “collectible“ qualities, why don’t they just sell the basic version, since you’re going to use the hell out of that anyway, so smashed corners and water damage won’t matter?
Well I was all for it, and then the never ending slew of comments about damaged product pushed me away. Thanks for the feedback y'all.
This is $130 on amazon right now, it'll get to you faster and in better condition from Amazon.
"Sorry, this drop cannot be shipped to FR" =(

just use a forwarding service... Seriously, how hard is that?
Despite scores of complaints about damaged books, the exact same books in this latest drop were packaged exactly the same, with no proper cushioning, and my order is damaged, just like everyone else’s. IDIOTS are running this show. :-( I recommend you NOT buy this if you want it for the collectibility. If you’re just going to use them, you might as well save the extra expense and get the same set on Amazon with the “standard “ art.

Hope this gets more visibility. I ordered with the first wave and books arrived damage. My fault for trying to save on collectible goods I guess.
I got these from another seller and the pages in the PH were not cut right and stuck together. I think Wizards is the problem.
Will the vendor QUALITY CONTROL and PROPERLY PACKAGE these “Collectors Items” this time to ensure corners are not smashed and pages are not water damaged?
captain
Nope. The idiots have not learned. My books are damage too. :-(

What was the usually shipping time for this drop? I just don't want to join and it take a month+ to receive it.
Hammerton
My experience with MassDrop is: anywhere from a week or two to, usually stated months later, to… Never. But if you read through the comments below, it looks like you should have these by the end of 2019 February, albeit damaged and no longer “collectible”. :-/

Still no delivery out of The USA.... really?
TraneHartnet
i'd like this too, but if it doesn't ship outside of US then no point drooling over it
Bersilus
let me blow your mind - parcel forwarding services - you will never have to complain about shipping again; they are this new invention c.1800
Has the shipping packaging been updated since the last few runs? The discussions here show a lot of people got damaged goods.
Why is this only available to the US? ...
The right bottom corner of all three books was extremely dented when they arrived. I am trying to see if I can get a replacement..
nooysters
I had a similar issue, the upper corners of 2 of the books and the box were heavily damaged. I was told that no replacement stock existed and there was no warrantee for the product. All MD could do is offer me a refund for a return. I like this set but it was poorly packaged for shipping. I'll probably end up keeping the set but I'm disappointed that there's no replacement option.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DELIVER TO CANADA NEXT TIME
Wait. How is this a deal...? I can get all three books for half the price on Amazon...?

I posted that comment over 3 weeks ago; the price on Amazon has gone up since then.

WAY up. Bummer. :-(
A few others have already asked, but does this ship internationally? Looking to get a copy in Canada.
Why no shipping to New Zealand? Can you open this up?
Collectors box damaged when received.

Report to Wizards of the coast directly
No shipping to Australia? :'(
The people who ordered them the last time, how much time did they take to arrive?
Aragone
Mine took just about a week shockingly
Are these 5th edition?
Luatica
They are.
Got mine yesterday. The package it came in wasn’t bad. The players handbook though had a section in the corner folded up and stuck together. Legit had to rip the upper corner to access the pages. Not sure if I can get a replacement.

I did not. I just have the torn corners
Eltrain
When did you first order them? and when did they arrive?
Any chances of counterfeits with these? I imagine it would be quite difficult to pull off.

I've seen other people remark on nicks and cuts that look like boxcutters.. wonder what happened there. There are only a few companies who know how to package hardcovers properly, most of them smaller retailers.

Smaller retailers want to keep their customers and sending out another book cuts costs heavily, so doing it right the first time makes sense. My thought behind this specific drop is a hobby shop couldn't hold these, went out of business, or a pallet broke in shipping and was refused by the retailer. Either way the books themselves are in perfect condition for me, only the box for them was slightly damaged.
Ordered back on Nov 23 and got it today. You get what you paid for I supposed. The product is nice, but the shipping is kinda horrible. Very cheap packaging so the slip case for the books got dents on them due to being tossed around during shipping. I guess I'll just stick to brick-and-mortar stores from now on for any collector's items.

Yah, mine is a little dinged up too. I plan on using my set as my daily drivers so I'm not super worried about it. It is still irritating though. The way to do is right is to bubble wrap or have a foam protector around the case. I'll bet the sets shipped from amazon will have dings in them too. Pretty much every hard cover I've received from amazon is dinged up.
To whomever is the vendor here...any chance we can get some information on when these will be shipped? Is there any chance we'll get them before Christmas?
Pertplus
The orders seem to be rolling out already, looks like these will arrive well before Christmas
I checked this yesterday and it said there were still 2 days on the drop ... what happened???
exdee
Yeah, same.

They had a set amount and they sold every item. I believe it was limited to 125
Lots of people in here saying they're a brick and mortar exclusive, but WotC themselves is already selling these through Amazon for just a few bucks more. I don't know why, because they've never handled distribution for the special editions like that before, but this doesn't look like a case of "buying out a whole store" and scalping fans for profits.
DaVinci97
I was under the impression that Wizards RPG Team was WotC's official storefront on amazon, which the limited edition is not sold on. They are listed under Wizards of the Coast though. Is that confirmed as a branch of theirs?
Once again, Only USA... Disappointing.

Try looking at your LGS. I have a copy already and they're absolutely stunning. My store sold them at £129.99, but I got a 10% discount for DMing with them regularly. :)
This edition is supposed to be exclusive to local independent brick and mortar game stores to help them compete with big box and online retailers that are underselling them out of existence. It’s shameful that Massdrop is selling this. If you’re able to, please support your local gaming community by buying this from your LGS instead of Massdrop.

When I tried to get a special edition of Volos Guide two years ago, neither of my local shops knew about it till I told them, and the one I DID reserve a copy with (they said they were only taking reservations) neglected to tell me it was a 24hr hold and sold my copy before I came in on the weekend to pick it up. I'm all for supporting local shops but NOT poor management. I'm glad to see this on Massdrop.
worrymonster
This actually happened to a friend of mine as well. The next store he went to was up charging the book to absurd prices. Although these books are "for" LGSs some can be dicks about it.
Any idea if these will include the latest errata released a few weeks ago?

Good find! That’s awesome!
Will these ship to Canada?
