    Don't know if this was posted (couldn't find anything when I searched... usually I don't find something, but it was already posted), but they are shipping the box sets now. I just got mine in the mail today.

    The matrix, er..., box opened fully:

    Lift the central part of the box (the center of the matrix) to reveal:

    All contents laid out (the Prime flap isn't really rainbow-colored; that's just a consequence of the flash):

    The four sets of discs:

    The interiors (behind the first two DVDs are the other two per "set," there are no other pictures behind those):

    Holy what?!! I wasn't expecting this until August at the earliest. Did I totally miss the initial release date when I paid? I must have been too distracted with getting my order in fast.

    SWEET!

    It just showed up. No notice of it shipping.

    I thought they had noted somewhere on their site that they would ship preorders out so that people would have them by the 13th.

    Wow, they're released now? And I preordered the complete set roughly a week or so ago. Can't wait for it to arrive.

    Wait. So is this set only available from their website? Or will it be out in retail too?

    My set appears to have shipped too, though it doesn't seem I've been charged yet. Funky.

    Is there any way to track the shipping or nah?

    According to Brian Ward on the shout factory forums

    "As of right now, there is a finite number of sets in the production run. The complete series set is expected to hit retail at an undetermined time down the road, but if we sell out online first, we will need to evaluate the need and costs associated with a second run and its release at retail."
