    Just received a large flat package marked Royal Mail today. I am at work today, so it will be tonight before I can open it. What could it possibly be?

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    It's a beautiful set - and the video is awesome (would have cost and arm an a leg for the out of print video that his now crystal clear).
    OK, thanks for responding. I'm still not sure about ordering, I had a terrible experience recently getting my CD/DVD collection from Texas to Nova Scotia and to say it was an ordeal would be an understatement. Meaning, it's not the cost but that I NEED to stop buying stuff, it is a hard habit to break but this set seems so tempting uurrgghh!!

    No problem! All I can say is the IQ was very reliable in shipping pretty quickly (3 weeks) and the product is beautiful (including the book and wonderful Blue Ray Video). Not trying to convince you, especially given your challenges already but that's my 2 cents.

    Thank you Jed, the set is great looking even discs are only in the pockets. Hope you get yours shortly, if not today. Seems they have kept the orders shipping fairly consistently according to the purchase date or rather to the order number. I know difficult waiting can be, so by all means let us know.

    Seems you are already late for this train, as it left the station ... meaning it has been supposedly already sold out. There was mention of repressing some more due to the sheer interest, so perhaps you are not "out of the woods" yet

    I had no idea the book in this set was going to be so beautiful. What a treasure for us IQ lovers! And how nice to finally remove the original out of print releases scattered throughout my Discogs want list. As extensive as my collection is, there were several of these I still didn't have. And I can sell off the ones I did have!

    Indeed. This is what they said about that:

    We were really surprised that the Archive Collection book sold so quickly (it actually took less than two weeks to sell out). Since then we’ve heard from many people that they just missed being able to order it, or didn’t know about it until too late, with the result that if they now want to complete their IQ collection they’ll have to pay hugely inflated prices for a copy.

    We’re really not liking this, so we’re currently looking into the costs involved with a small repressing so that everyone who wants to own a copy can do so at the original price. We’re told that costs have already increased for the materials, but hopefully we’ll be able to make it work without it costing us too much. We’ll keep you posted.

    Speaking of which… we’re STILL working through the original orders trying to get them out to you as quickly as we can. Please bear with us, it seems like a perfect storm of Christmas holidays, Brexit and reduced postal staff due to Covid have conspired to delay things for some people, but we’re doing our best to get past that!

    I hadn't really thought about how these limited releases that are truly limited are good because they don't hurt the second-hand market for the component parts of the set. In the case of this IQ set, it might just improve the market for the disks.

    I've seen more of the originals appear on Discogs lately, so people are definitely ditching them for this set. Good healthy competition for stretched wallets, to be sure!

    I’m suspecting trouble with my order as it isn’t here yet (5 weeks now)

    My Order # is 1301 placed December 15th

    Can you folks that have received yours recall your Order# ?

    I’m suspecting my Archive Collection got thrown into the bag that delivers issues of PROG!

    You are not alone, I have #1368 and am also waiting (in AZ.)

    Hopefully we both get a surprise in the mail very soon. Was going to give it another week, then drop another email to see if they have any tracking info, or can given any support (or download links.)

    Take care,
    Chris

    Nothing yet here east of Phoenix. Ordered as well on 12/15. Order 1376.

    I sent a message and Anne replied it had been shipped and gave me her kind regards. There is a daily British Airways nonstop to here that I'm sure carries Royal Mail.

    I had an order from BurningShed that showed tracking info, and there was a 23 day gap from when it was dropped off an an international facility in the UK, and when it was handed from the international receiving facility in Los Angeles to domestic USPS service.

    Mine was #1477, ordered 12/16 and received 1/18. Looking at the responses it seems the location in US may play a role here (Washington State and Arizona) and dependent on the postal service here ?!
    Hopefully happy ending is not too far off for you guys still waiting.

    Gary, my order # is 1273 and I still haven't seen mine either and I ordered on the 15th. What makes it odd is that someone in Lynnwood received theirs last week and that's only 10-15 minutes north of me. Hopefully, soon.

    My order is #1375 placed 12/15 too. Still not here yet.

    I don't know if LA is a USPS distribution hub, but if it is...hopefully none of your packages wound up in this mess.
