Just bad luck, but even still cudz steps up with the GB, so I don't have to go on Ebay to complete my set. Its been an expensive last 4 weeks with just Indy, both Rush Kimichi's and blufans Pacific Rim, Up, and the multiple frozen GB's. Hope things slow down a bit Please!

Sorry, I got the email from "someone" real early. I didn't even check my email till I was getting kid up for school. Saw it and got over here as soon as I could. And that was around 0600.
Also right about the time it went live, the regular mass email went to everyone else.
But yes...look forward to more news when I can get it.

My e-mail notification of it going live arrived in my inbox at around 4:30am Pacific Time.

Do you have an account with Zavvi? If so, there are mail preferences. It's good for steelbooks, but man they send a lot of other garbage too. Every week I get about 3 different "MEGA MONDAY IS HERE/BACK/EXTENDED/ENDING" e-mails.

Ty Neoz, guess I am the only person not on there mass email even though I've purchased a dozen steels from them suppose an email will hopefully solve that. Seems like everyone had a 24 hour heads up on the 1st 3 Indy's I wonder why they would give such little notice for Crystal before putting it up live? Thanks Petra I'll ask for just the release info emails and poke around on my account settings

Probably because KotCS wasn't available for preorder, like the other 3 Indy steelbooks were, last year. At least that's my guess.
I know it doesn't make much sense, but it is Zavvi we are talking about.

The 24 notice for the other 3 came from HDN. A member there by the name of Wreck seems to have made contact and a relationship with someone at Zavvi who is in the know. So, he tells the forum on HDN and then those who are members of both forums spread the word to this forum. That's how we normally get advanced notice about them goin live for pre-order. Don't know what happened with this one though. Didn't get that much warning at all.

I got the heads up email, but never was given a firm date.
Then got the email like I said this morning very last minute. None the less if I would have been awake at 0330 I could have posted the info here.
But I was asleep...shame on me.

What's up with Zavvi and these steels? The fourth one was available briefly, the first three I haven't seen live since Zavvi put them back on the site over a month ago.

Because putting an email out 48 hours before the preorder went up would be too hard, stating time and date?

Seriously, all these "heads up" are designed so that HDN members and people who frequent the forum 24 hours a day are designed for. As previously specified by yourself they send a whole bunch of junk email out. But the important and right emails don't get sent.
