My copy arrived from Amazon today.

The sticker on the shrink wrap indicated the discs were made in Germany and the package was assembled stateside.

I would bet (dollars to donuts, as someone used to say) that rather than any nefarious scheme or poor planning by the studio, it just got held up given the many worldwide issues with manufacturing and shipping across the board. Even if the discs shipped from the German plant on schedule (assuming no shortage of replication supplies and raw materials, a big assumption), there is a worldwide shortage of international shipping containers due to a worldwide shortage of dock workers to unload and process those shipments - basically containers aren’t being emptied in time so they’re not moving to their next destination in time to make their scheduled dates. The discs could have easily gotten caught up in that.

Then, on the U.S. side, there are shortages of labor for the kind of plant work that’s necessary to turn giant spindles of discs into fully packaged box sets. There are further shortages in domestic shipping logistics. And then on top of that, the areas hit by Hurricane Ida a few weeks ago are regions that just so happen to have some of the biggest shipping and warehouse hubs in the country.

It looks like the perfect storm of everything lining up to go wrong and cause delays.

So here it is just a couple weeks late and in my hands. For a release that I half thought would never happen, much less in a pandemic, I am in full on Pollyanna mode and thrilled to have this.

Mine arrived yesterday as well. I’m hoping to watch a bit tonight.

I thought these turned out well. Chromart zanart from the 1990s. Bought used and framed up.

The 5 one is coming this week. For some reason on 5 there is no text and they never made a poster ine from Star Trek 6?

I got my Amazon order today, a day early than when it said it would be delivered! Glad to have it in my hands, even if I won’t be able to watch it until either Friday or Saturday. Hopefully can squeeze in a viewing tomorrow night, but we’ll see.

Don’t you mean Credits to Navy beans? ;)

Glad you guys are getting your sets.
