So... how would you all react/respond?

In my excitement and then subsequent dissapointment, I failed to read the other threads first. I know this. You need tell me anymore. Thanks

I wasn't expecting Overstock.com to honor the super cheap price I pre-ordered this at, but it shipped today! Hoorah!

Holy crap!

After further review, they CHANGED the product! This has to be somehow illegal, right? My order on the account now says that it's the asylum pack.

Must have.... I didn't see ones where people noted the item being CHANGED in their accounts rather than just postponed.

Quick review. SKU confusion probably result of FFG or a distributor resulted in mislisting at Overstock and Amazon. The do not have any of the core sets but they will happily send you the Asylum pack for the listed price.

They will send you a return label so you do not need to pay for return postage. If you harass them you might get something for your trouble but probably not a core set. Start looking elsewhere.

Yeah, I just scanned through the other threads. Gonna have to get a return shipping label.

Irritating nonetheless.

I'd love it if this whole subject would go somewhere and die. Somewhere far, far away ...


Well I apologize that I inconvenienced you so much that it warranted an additional post after I already admitted my mistake in not finding the other threads.

Please forgive me.

No one makes you read anything you don't want to.

If you don't want to be annoyed by it, don't click.
