No more Phase 1 Avengers Set?

No more Phase 1 Avengers Set?

Is it ever too late to pre-order something at least a month's notice? In this case it might be, Avengers Phase-1 collectors set coming out this late September is now under review.

Just a little under 24 hours ago Amazon has pulled the Avengers Phase 1 collectors set and is not under review, It has stopped taken orders and instead posted up a "alert me".

Disney\ Buena Vista's website (http://disneydvd.disney.go.com) has taken the set off their list for pre-orders and only lists the standard editions of the movies.

A while ago "SaintSpidey67Re" posted this article ago before the item is being pulled:

Seems like a while back when the German company Rimowa was reported to sue Disney for the copyright of their suitcase for collectors set has taken a new turn and is being reviewed even more under the scope since the movie is suppose to be released this September.

I am furious that I was just about to pre-order the set after finally deciding to pull the trigger on Amazon being the cheapest sale price for it.

What are your thoughts? And please if anyone who actually pre-ordered this let us know if you got a special e-mail or notice about this set.

shame,i'm sad now. :(

Well I'm glad. I own them all on Blu-ray already so buying this would just seem excessive. Bottom line, I just don't want people having something I don't got! lol

It's now being released in an Asda bag rather than the suit case

This is very annoying

I was only gonna buy the standalone Blu-Ray release, this does suck for those who were gonna buy the set if true.

Walmart has the pre-order still up and at the same price as Amazon.

I've had this pre-ordered and I was going to finally buy a Blu-Ray player just for this set. Where is that [frick]ing sucks video of Kurt Russell when I need it?

Not surprised at all. Disney were pushing it with the replica-suitcase concept. They purchased the rights to have the suitcase in the film - NOT to go flogging replicas of it afterwards without permission.

Someone at Disney's creative/marketing head-office made a major boo-boo in thinking this was ok.

Now's a good time to look at that helicarrier...

Disney will smooth this out soon enough

Probably a massive payment settlement. Rimowa could milk them like the proverbial golden goat considering Disney probably have thousands of them they can't legally sell sitting around in a warehouse somewhere.

My 2 disc bluray/DVD set is already on the way to me - I'm hoping it gets here by tomorrow, so tomorrow night can be Avengers night!!! I cant wait to watch it in the comfort of my own home in HD!!!

Kornkid22 - 9/3/2012, 2:08 PM
Well i guess
Kornkid22 - 9/3/2012, 2:09 PM
Well i guess its a case of early bird gets the worm. I pre ordered my copy in June knowing that it was going to be pretty big. Sucks for the people that waited the last minute to pre order. :(
