So yeah, they've just ground to a halt. People who ordered Stargate through regular mail might see it in the New Year.
I have one package (my Massacre at Central High BD from Synapse) that went out through USPS almost a month ago, and it's been stuck "in transit" in my own state for 8 days now. I would definitely think twice before ordering anything through USPS right now. Stick to any site that ships UPS or FedEx. At least then, your package won't fall into a black hole or the Burmuda Triangle.

I think you're comparing apples and oranges. Because I wouldn't pay even $10 for Mission Impossible set, but I would gladly pay $400 for a Stargate SG-1 set if it was real HD.

First class/Priority Mail is backed up as well now. I have 2 Priority Mail packages that are in limbo that usually only take 2 days to get.

It could be that VEI hasn't dropped off some of their orders with USPS yet. Obviously my expectations with receiving anything on time shipped from USPS is low right now. It's not USPS fault though if VEI hasn't dropped off their shipments yet.
Post office isn't scanning stuff till it gets to your local hub, so you won't see one till they are about to deliver it.

If this set is 41 discs, then each season will be 4 discs and maybe disc 41 will be the 2 movies or the final cut version of the pilot movie.

Give me a break...what a ridiculous argument against a potential industry trend. if you are going to use that rationale of what ONE person would prefer over ANOTHER then EVERY single release ever produced is apples and oranges to one another.

The fact is that they are both new blu-ray releases of complete series that were originally released on DVD several years earlier for more money. The fact is that a new complete DVD release of SG-1 recently was released for only $80 compared to what it originally went for. The fact is that HIGH priced blu-ray TV sets of past series have generally failed when their counterpart DVD sets are now relatively cheap in comparison.

Yes, it is possible to look at this pricing as a new trend considering the state of physical media. And for the record, I would take the new MI release (and have) over SG-1, which makes us even, big deal that means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Now, one true difference between the two is the SFX's in SG-1 needing to be redone for a true HD release, but based on little news to support such a theory, most have accepted that at best this could be HD of the live action and up-scaling of the SFX. If SG-1 were to be released in true HD for $400, I'd suspect it would fail miserably. Unfortunately, it does not have the same fan support as a Star Trek, which already had difficulty at such high pricing.

No, those aren't included. That disc will contain the extras.

VEI has not posted, at this time, anything about disc counts for the release. Unfortunately, Amazon has a habit of making up information initially when none is readily available, and 41 is the count for the related VEI complete DVD release. It could be a fabrication on Amazon's part for now or it could just be that VEI is matching disc content between the two releases, just like the packaging, to simplify the process on their end.

The two movies and the final cut of the pilot movie are apparently not included within the complete DVD release. Therefore, it is unlikely they would be included in the blu-ray release. If they had the licensing to do so, one would think they would be available for both releases.

My MI set took one day to go from KY to PA, four days to go from PA to DC, and another four days to go from DC to MD. I haven't received a Netflx disk in 16 days when I should receive three a week. Yet, I received a case of blank blu-rays cases from NY to MD in only a couple of days. Why one thing manages to go through and another grinds to a complete halt is a mystery, but with all that is going on combined with likely a higher percentage of mailings this Christmas, one should temper expectations.

Not all of my packages may get scanned at a facility in transit, but a majority of my packages do get scanned before it gets to the local hub.

Its a European thing or at least Northern Europe thing.

I don't know it's rare for that to happen. Maybe not with all that's going on lately but usually it gets scanned at least once. I had bought a BD on eBay before and it was stuck on pre-shipment for a month (media mail) and it didn't get scanned till it arrived at my local post office. I thought the seller was a scammer but I was proven wrong. With the Stargate BD set it's just on pre-shipment. No scan or nothing by post office. This is why I was wondering if any USA buyers of the set here have movement on their USPS package because I don't. Maybe VEI just hasn't officially shipped some of their orders out yet to USA customers. The Amazon page for the set keeps going from in stock to usually ships in 10 days and VEI sells their products via Amazon.

This is one of my favorite secular TV series that originally aired on the Showtime premium channel. I actually like Stargate SG-1 a little better when compared to the original Star Trek series. Both Stargate and Star Tek are fun family friendly science fiction TV series for all ages. The original Star Trek only ran 3 seasons and Stargate SG-1 was so popular it lasted 10 seasons. It has been around 13 years since I watched the original Stargate SG-1 series on DVD. I wish this series would have been released on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format, however for only $129.99 for 10 seasons that is an awesome deal (that works out to be $12.99 for each season). Hopefully the quality of this series will be good, like everyone else I have not received my order yet. This series was released on Blu-ray on December 18th 2020, however it’s a busy time of year and things are running behind schedule. Really awesome to see this finally be released on Blu-ray. Hopefully the quality will be good and in 1080P instead of 1080i. We should also get 5.1 lossless audio in theory. A 127 hours of bonus content sounds awesome, it will be good to listen to the audio commentary tracks once again. Once someone actually receives this boxset then hopefully the technical specs at Blu-ray.com will be updated.

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Starg...lu-ray/282609/

Professionally stamped optical discs like Blu-ray discs can literally last up to a 1,000 years. Also recordable M-Disc Blu-ray discs can last a 1,000 years. Blu-ray discs are also EMI/RFI and EMP proof just like DVD and audio CD’s. This would be another good boxset to place in a time capsule and maybe someone a 1,000 years from now might discover the time capsule and watch Stargate SG-1 for the very first time. However one better put a note in the time capsule letting people know that this series is fictional, since someone in a 1,000 years from now might think they are watching a documentary on how things use to be on the planet earth.

Probably not a fair comparison, seeing how one show aired 30 years after the other.

I gave VEI a call in the afternoon and the customer service rep said my package had shipped days ago. They were very helpful and courteous. At the time it still was stuck on pre-shipment and tonight I checked tracking and it was miraculously scanned and has movement finally. I can't prove either way if they finally shipped it this afternoon or days ago but it's kind of a huge coincidence lol.

Still they were very helpful with my order and any questions I had.

Did you ask some details about the BD release?

VEI does not have any consideration with clients. I have written to them several times asking about the aspect ratio, asking if they have made improvements in the color, how many BD discs the series has, etc, and there is no way, they do not want to answer. What a bad company is this
