    Great googly moogly!

    I'm almost tempted to double-dip, to get the 1932 version. Is this the only way it's available?

    It took some time, but was worth it. Great price [​IMG]

    Thanks John, I dipped again for the '32 version. Man, the system sure was screwy, took quite some effort to get the order in...anybody else just persevere and don't take "we're sorry" for an answer!

    Woo hoo! Just placed my order. It comes to around $20.45 US (or $27.47 Cdn + $9.98 Cdn shipping) after I also applied a $5 Cdn coupon code:

    Keep trying; the amazon.ca website is famous for its flakiness - you'll get there eventually!

    I have only encountered this type of problem once before at amazon.ca, and it was for an item (Time Bandits) that was in limited supply at the time. As their real-time stock control does its thing a disc will and won't be available...it may be available when you put it in your cart, but not when you go to check out a minute later, etc. Weird, probably an effect of some "upgrades" they did to the site some time ago, quite annoying. That said, they are a pleasant outfit IME to deal with, quite reasonable re returns/replacements/shipping refunds/personal requests/etc. I wish they had a daily clearout/bargain list so we'd know about this stuff easier.

    Got my order in, as well as for Ginger Snaps and Ginger Snaps 2. Been wanting to get the canadian GS for awhile now, much better than that lousy US release...

    Question, this is the same as the US release? in the cigar box with the money clip?

    I used the standard shipping option on Friday and it also showed up on my doorsteps today, much to my surprise.

    Looks like Amazon.ca upped the price for this set to $44.97 Cdn. Oh well, it was a great deal while it lasted.[​IMG]

    That's fast Patrick! I ordered the same day you did (15th), and mine should arrive tomorrow...it shipped today and it usually takes 1 day from amazon.ca for me by "standard". Though the order was confirmed etc. as usual for amazon, I still kinda thought it might not actually get shipped...

    Edit: Yup, a big well-cushioned box on the doorstep...
