I cancelled my pre order and bought them separately. Slightly more expensive (bout £3) but they have been dispatched! Shame, I would have liked the box set but I am not a patient person! Hope you get your set soon.
Hi SJ - I work for the publisher and can confirm that 24th is the pub date. Box sets can be tricky to produce and unfortunately this means that publication dates can move. We offer our apologies to any inconvenience that this has caused, but you will have your box sets for Christmas!
