I dont think anyone did not receive their prints. I started this discussion before the book was released when it wasnt clear if UK was getting the prints as it was only being mentioned on the US Amazon at the time. Since then the UK description was updated for the better :)
i also got the prints. i think prof potter was jumping the gun here. like someone stated previously, the isbn was the same, so everything included would be the same. the fact it wasn't in the description should probably be taken with a pinch of salt, as this happens quite a lot.
or maybe not paying attention to what the us site says would help, as we'd all have been happily surprised when we received the collector's edition and found we had some nice prints in it...
i also did point out in my previous post that the product page mentioned these 10 prints, but was told by prof potter i was wrong. well, looks like i was right, after all. i don't see any apology, though...
tqfan, with respect, at the time of creating this discussion way back on 8 Oct, there were no mention of the prints on the UK site. You mentioned 10 new illustrations, that was not referring to the prints but the new illustrations in the CE that are not in the SE. but LATER on, Amazon added a line description about the 10 prints.
As for reading the US site, what is wrong with that? They have interesting discussions on there too, only thing is could only read them not post. Its all part of the fun in waiting for our CE.
I think reading the history of this thread (I cant see why anyone would be interested in doing so to be honest!) would explain it all. My only regret was that I made it come across as a big deal at first but it was a little trivial in the end.
I am writing this because I am startled at the fact you are expecting an apology from me. I have no idea why I am supposed to be sorry about but i don like to see anyone upset. So I am sorry if I have upset you in any way.
