Sorry yeah that wasn't funny, have you tried reaching out to anyone either in Amazon or potentially Powerhouse if you're having issues, I won't act like I know what to do in that situation but it could work.
I took your comment in the spirit it was intended. Don’t worry. :)

A former colleague once ordered a book about the latest video codecs, and was sent one about how to make little wooden toys.

Obviously an accident, but it was such a gloriously Luddite alternative that it would have been truly inspired if it had been deliberate.

Despite the disclaimer about longer shipping times, my 10/30 order arrived in Chicago on 11/10. I'm pretty sure I went with the cheapest shipping option, too (UPS Worldwide Expedited).

The Big Gundown never shipped from Zavvi either. Remains advertised as In Stock, but will never dispatch.

Anyone else still waiting on their sale order being dispatched? I ordered on the second day and no dice yet. I know they tend to prioritise overseas order first.

Still waiting as well TM, ordered on the second day as well and I’m based in the UK. A lot of people on blu-ray.com who ordered later have received their orders so it may well be as you say and they have prioritised overseas first.

Same. I placed two orders, just minutes apart. (I made a silly error.) One shipped quite promptly and arrived in Connecticut in great time. The second has yet to ship.

I'm UK-based and still waiting for dispatch of 6 LEs ordered on 31st October. But it's not a problem - I have dozens of films still to watch from other sales this month. :)

UK here, and I received my sale order (Michael Murphy, Pemini and The Brute) on Wednesday. I imagine it’s a matter of which titles were in stock and ready to go.

Looks like I'm definitely doing a group buy. PM me if you want in. Cost will be the price in USD listed on Indicator's site plus whatever it costs me to ship a package to you via Media Mail. Titles won't ship until at least January.
I assume we just got the last announcement for the year, so I'd like to place an order sometime in the next week or so. It will include February titles so it will take until at least then to ship. PM me if you want in

I can't take any more orders for the Krish store exclusive, but if anyone would like anything else, please let me know sometime this weekend

I am depressingly not shocked at all 90 in the Shade is getting deleted but it still saddens me because I’m positive the main reason it’s getting deleted is that it’s not a good seller which sucks because who knows what other Czech films could have been brought up if this sold better (yes I’m aware it was an accidental discovery but still).

As with the Fox titles from a few months ago, the latest batch of deletions all come from the same rightsholder; it's got nothing to do with how well they sold or otherwise. (The Legacy, for instance, sold out its limited edition in less than a year.)

But with regard to 90˚ in the Shade, it was always going to be a one-off because the film itself was a one-off, as the only Anglo-Czechoslovak co-production from the Communist era with any artistic merit (there's only one more, a reputedly terrible thriller). And Czech cinema is being rather well catered for right now compared with the output of many other countries, what with Second Run covering the arthouse end and Deaf Crocodile the genre end, so there's no particularly compelling reason for Indicator to enter that market as well.
