What was the timestamp on your order?

Oh, there's similar chatter on The td.org boards Looking thru there's word that there is no slipcase and someone linked a twitter video

That 100% looks like a POD book. Which is likely reflective of the company who is actually filling the orders.

That is a bummer. Printed case equates to no DJ...

Underwhelming compared to what CD puts out for around the same price, but still bought one. Order 1674, confirmation received at 3 minutes after if anyone is keeping track

I couldn't order direct, but a fellow collector that i know via facebook hooked me up and went ahead and ordered one for me before even knowing that i actually wanted one.

Probably because of all the other Fairy Tale editions that i own, such a nice fella to do so. 😉

Lividian Press is trying to gauge interest in a slipcase for this edition:

Since, you know, it doesn't come with one.
