Did you go ahead and order the replacement disc before receiving your Ultimate Edition? If so I need to order one, I was waiting to see if they were going to include the replacement disc in the sets that still haven’t shipped in the US.

The replacement disc was for my Standard Edition. I don’t know what the Ultimate Edition has in store for me.

All The Anime haven't said anything about this yet. I've just emailed them to see if they're going to do the same as GKids. I'll want two copies, as I also bought a Standard Edition as a present for a friend.

From the looks of things, it seems like the UK isn’t suffering from the same supply chain issues, but DOES seem to have the same masters and the GKIDS release.

There was only a limited number of UK Ultimate Edition sets at the release date - I ordered within hours, so I was in the first tranche of deliveries. I don't know if more have gone out yet.

The masters are the same, I guess, except that the UK disks are made with "All The Anime" branding displayed in the opening menus.

AllTheAnime have now replied and told me they are making new disks and are collecting details from those who want them. They don't appear to be making any anouncement, though.

Just got an email from Gkids that shipping for the Ultimate Edition starts January 25th. Gonna have to keep an eye out for the FedEx truck since it will require a signature.

I just got my update about 10 minutes ago, FedEx states it will be here January 28, so fingers crossed! FedEx isn't allowing this to be signed for online ahead of time, so I have to keep an eye/ear out for the delivery truck.

Is there any way to reschedule delivery with FedEx? I'll be at work the day it delivers...

Yep, my disc didn't have subtitles, so had to fill out the form.

Anyway, my impressions on the set:

Thrilled they translated most of the material from the Japanese BD booklet.
Not thrilled at how hard it is to get discs out--I might actually store them in my old see-through-red tree of life Japanese DVD set.
The Sachiel & Lanyard trinkets are useless to me.
Kinda don't like the redundancy of images; the pics on the disc sleeves could've been different from the giant art cards.
Why wouldn't you put the big cast pic on two separate cards so people could conjoin them and display the whole pic if they wanted to? Baffling.

Other than that, it's a wonderful set and it's neat to have nearly all the LD and DVD art in one package.

Just got my Ultimate Edition today. So heavy! I watched the first couple of episodes to spot check. Looks great. And I was already sent the replacement disc, so I'm in business.

Mine is supposed to be here by the end of the day today, but it’s looking like it’ll be Monday instead.

Yeah, my original quoted delivery day ended up being wrong by a day or two. Fedex only gets accurate once they're physically handling the package.

Got mine today, asked someone to wait at home to receive it for me, and surprise, the Fed Ex deliverer didn't ask for a signature. Now to find out where the hell I'm gonna put this thing.

I feel your pain :) Mine is currently on top of my bookcase but I need to find a better place for it...

Anyways, I couldn't me any happier with it, I love this thing. Thinking about getting some frames for the artwork.

Looking forward to never having to watch my Manga Entertainment copy of EoE again!

And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

I just unboxed it. I'm pretty sure this thing is heavier than my Ingmar Bergman box set and that weighs 8 pounds if I remember correctly. And as needless as the paper weight is, it's actually well made.

The set looks awesome, not much of a complaint aside from feeling that some of it is overall unnecessary. I have not had a chance to check the discs, I'll probably dive into all the bonus content this upcoming weekend. Honestly, I feel like in hindsight I could have gotten by with just the Collectors Edition solely based on size/form factor. The whole set is neat, but I really would have liked a "normal" copy to keep with other discs on the shelf. I collect vinyl records, mostly black metal and other related genres, and have several oversized box sets (Moonblood, Vlad Tepes, Conqueror, Order from Chaos, etc.). I typically pull the records out and store them on the shelf with normal records and just leave the box sitting on top of the shelf. In this case I would need to get some blank DVD cases to store the discs in if I wanted to have handy shelf copies. Anyone have links to any custom DVD/BluRay sized layouts that could be used?

So the Deluxe edition includes a 156-page book and, thankfully, it seems to include all the tidbits of information previously available on the Newtype Filmbooks, Chronicle and such, which as we know are recycled from book to book. Case in point, this trivia I've known only to be previously available on Filmbook Vol 1:

With that said, most of this information remained untranslated, or simply not available online - there is an official English (and French) translation of Essential Chronicle, but nobody scanned it. So it is, I'd say, a priority to get them scanned as soon as possible.
