It's a shame they only ship to USA and Canada. I would have liked to buy one myself but hailing from Europe I am left grounding my teeth in frustration!

Looks like it's sold out. Strangely, I don't think any of the limited had sold as of yesterday. I tried adding 3000 copies to my cart and it let me proceed to checkout... or maybe that's just an issue with the website?

ULE now officially Sold Out.

Getting anxious for that Stark ornament though. Suppose "ships in the coming days" wasn't literal.

it's very dumb that for the ultra box, the tshirt sizes could run out of M for the last few boxes. They couldn't be bothered to repack for a $600 purchase apparently, seeing that you could still order M for the limited box.

Got the ornament this week. Anyone else surprised at how chintzy and cheap it was?  If the rest of the Box contents are like that, I'll be hard pressed to believe that $600 will be worth it.

i have a feeling that much of that $600 will be the (future)value of the book. agree the ornament was kinda chintzy

There is a video where you can see what's included, although the book they show is just a mock up. The book/box is where the value is although these sets will need to stay together if you want to resell at some point. There might be many who use or break up the contents, so complete boxes might be rare.

Impressions?

 

ETA: If anyone got #196, would love to have the number matching my Sub Press editions. I have a number in the 180s.

Ah, I was wondering why I got a UPS notification. Mine will be delivered Monday.

For those who missed out on the box or live in Europe (like me) you can get the new signed hardcover Game of Thrones illustrated edition at Martin's Jean Cocteau website for $60. Good price!

I got my ultra box last night....#053...just unpacked as I still had family in town. 

Impressions:

  • The box is pretty nice. Much better quality than the box from valyrian steel Nights Watch Dragon Set. Although I would've preferred the lid to have a grooved hinge or whatever you call it so that you had to slide it out rather than just pulling the lid off. Good construction, felt lined...
  • the map of Kings Landing is really nice I think. 
  • the shire post mint coins come in a sealed plastic bag. Once you slice that open you get to the wax sealed envelope with the coins. Shire Post does good work. As expected, also nice.
  • String Ornaments, and bonus ornament (see above) whatever....
  • Trading Card game...seems like a high quality item. I didn't open it, or the exclusive trading card.
  • Dark Sword Miniatures seem fine. Not really my thing...
  • T-shirt seems decent quality also in sealed plastic bag. Did not open.
  • Dothraki language comes on a card with a code.
  • Maester's journal seems good quality also comes sealed. I did not open.
  • And finally, the book! Quite simply amazing. Really, really nice. My only beef with it is they f'ed up the signature page on the numbering like they made it 063 and wrote over the 6 extra to make it a 5. Should've been printed on and not inked by someone...

I think that's it...let me know if i missed something.

If I get some time I'll take a little video of the book and post it on youtube and link it here (especially if someone doesn't beat me to it).

Totally agree the handwritten signature page looks amateurish. Though I guess I should be grateful they didn't eff up my number. It's on a regular sheet instead of a thicker page like in the limited editions, leading me to believe it was signed or at least numbered after it was bound. Puzzling.

Do you mind posting video/photos of the coins as well (can't remember if these are exclusive)? I plan on leaving them sealed too.

I agree also. They should have printed a limitation page for this edition. They also should have included a signed (not numbered) edition in the limited box. I think those would sell much quicker.

Did anyone notice the box is numbered on the underside of the lid? That was a nice touch.

BTW there is a 15% off coupon thru Friday - code: CYBERGRRM

Here's a youtube link that shows the coins per Selmy's request, and I also point out the issues on the signature / numbered page + flip through the book a bit.

If there's anything else someone wants to see, let me know and I'll try to post a video of it. (don't ask me to dub Tar-GAR-yen with Tar-gair-yen).

Looks like there are more color plates in the limited than the trade edition from the video. I haven't looked thru my copy yet, but that's a nice feature.

 I don't think mine has even shipped yet. :(

Did you get notified that they charged your card? I would contact them for a tracking number. It has to be signed for.
