    Seriously?! That's horrible! I know that delivering during the day most likely people aren't home, but it's still their job, that's what they're paid to do. And as for the saying it was delivered when it wasn't, you'd think that would cause more trouble. I know I would be furious.


    Eeek! A lock box sounds like a great idea.

    I'll have to look into that! I wourk nights, so I'm always home when they come, problem is that they usually come when I'm sleeping, so they wake me up. Thanks for the heads up!

    Sold out before most people found it, as expected. I figured that since someone get the set already, the item code from the box had likely been passed around? So sad I couldn't get one, but I will survive without. No way I'll pay more than retail for them. :(

    Item codes don't work anymore (sis told me that). People figured they didn't work with the 17" Belle pre-order. It's just the luck of the draw for when the system updates and shows up

    Really? I didn't know they changed it. The number on the barcode, not receipt right? Either way it totally stinks when these pop up and no one can even find them until too late. I'm majorly bummed, I have to admit. Placeholders before the release would be kind of an amazing idea...

    Hey everyone! I haven't posted here in ages but still have been following along during the doll releases. :)

    I decided to try for the Platinum set and kept searching for "Belle Platinum doll" every second and it actually popped up. I checked out super fast (didn't worry about entering the Free Shipping code) and I was successful in purchasing the set!

    I am still freaking out over having spent so much on dolls but I couldn't resist lol. The only thing is when I look at my receipt it says shipping is $80.95...does anyone know why on earth it would be that much? The designer sets usually list a shipping price of $17.95. Just wondering if anyone else's order has the crazy shipping price. I will try to call tomorrow and see if they will take it off but was still curious...thanks!

    I got the platinum set (fingers crossed it won't be canceled!) and it has the same shipping price listed but it was taken off because I used the SHIPMAGIC code. I think it is because the size of the box?

    Sadly it is the correct shipping price.

    So if you have something tiny but expensive the shipping would be the same? That's ridiculous.

    Shipping is based on $$$ value, not the actual size and weight of the box!

    Yup. Everyone was passing around the UPC for Winter Belle and the item number on the receipt. Neither worked early.

    And PrincessBecky, re: shipping, hopefully you will find a nice CM. Since the order should be "in processing," what they will probably do is offer you am e-gift card because, once something is "processing", they can't make changes to it.

    Wow that is silly. So if I bought a pair of Mickey Mouse Diamond earrings (retails for $5525) I would be paying $330.95 to ship LOL.

    I really hope they take it off tomorrow! :anxious:

    I would be totally fine with that considering I am planning on purchasing the remaining two Designer sets and could use the money towards that...I would just feel silly paying $80 to ship the Platinum set just for not entering a code! It's my own fault I was just so nervous to check out fast...hopefully a nice CM will take pity on me tomorrow LOL.

    So there are already 4 listings up on eBay for the platinum set and 3 of them are written the same way which makes me believe it's the same seller using three different accounts. If it is the case I find it very dishonest.

    I bought the platinum set! she will be going all the way to the netherlands. and I will try next week in europa. to help out any other random collector! if I get her big if I will have 2 platinum sets. And I will sell the one from america then. she ofcourse will be more expensive because import and shipping but it is the retail price I paid for her, I just hope people don't get mad at me when I will sell her. D: never those stupid ebay prices like 3500 nobody is going to pay that.

    Disney website is still letting you add the platinum set to your bag. Didn't check out as I can't afford the set. I've already seen the LE belle doll go for $400 on eBay so many scalpels out there it sucks. I'm going to have to resort to eBay for belle as I missed the ore order

    That's very kind of you DisneysFreakingPrincess. I wish you luck.
    I was unable to get the snow Belle/Beast/Gaston dolls because of a silly error with Disney's website (yet they still put 2 blocks on my card for the price as I attempted to get her twice), and I missed out on the Platinum set as I was unlucky and didn't realise it was tonight until it was too late. Belle is the only doll I have missed out on in 4 years of collecting.
    Congratulations to everyone who has got her; she is very beautiful. (Personally I think she's more stunning than her original one all those years ago - which I also don't have, hahaha. It's the curse of the belle doll!!).

    I know the feeling I tried to pre order belle in america. error and they took away my money 22 times or something (I got it back thankgod) yesterday in europa sold out before 9 am. that's why I bought the platinum in america well at least I tried, because it would break my heart not to own no beauty and the beast doll, and in europa it's such a mess D: I love this gold belle way more her dress looks pretty but not overdone like the other one with the roses and her shoes ohhhh to die for! and I am a sucker for couples in the same box, thank god I could order the jasmine and aladdin set last year in europa less expensive haha. one month and I will have her. or maybe in 2 weeks already from europa <3

    Oh wow! 22 times! Gosh. I'm lucky mine was only 2. Well, if you do end up buying a second set in Europe and decide to sell your American one, please keep me in mind. I would be happy to discuss purchasing your double up from you. But if not, that's completely okay :D .
    Hehe yep, definitely agree about this belle being very pretty. I also feel like her hair is much nicer than the original (I didn't like how big the bun was on the top of her head).
    She is the first sort of 'double up' doll that was released after already having a first Belle doll out; I wonder if this will be a trend? I wonder if we should expect to see re-releases of other dolls? I think people would love a re-release of Snow White. Luckily I have her, and she's my grail doll, but I wouldn't mind a second one in a different outfit - even with her in rags!

    Edit: Honestly though, I'm still holding out in hopes for Pocahontas or Mulan... I know it's not likely, but a girl can dream right? ;)

    You are not alone! It's been a long time since I delt with Canada Post, but when I did they were the absolute worst. My best (worst?) story with them was waiting anxiously for a Christmas present to come in before service stopped for the holidays. I was so happy when tracking said it was out for delivery on the last possible day, and I diligently awaited it's arrival all day, even checking the mailbox every hour just in case the package was small enough to fit. Naturally not a peep was made at my door and the mailbox was completely empty when my tracking informed me that a delivery attempt had been made and I could pick up the parcel the next business day. I may have said some expletives. So Christmas passed and I went down to the post office the moment they reopened and had them dig for my stuff (I didn't even have a delivery slip). The next day, after I already went and got the dang package myself, miraculously a delivery slip appears! And they even had the gall to still write the original delivery date on it - like I wouldn't notice it hadn't been there for a week?! Obviously Canada Post has a working time machine.

    Yup ... because UPS is an insured service. So if they lose or damage your item, you should be covered for the full price. That's what the bulk of those charges cover: the insurance!

    Oh I love snow white I would love to own her one day but i am not going over 1000 to get her D: I will let you know if it will work out and that I will have 2 sets. Ofcourse I will keep the one I think it the most beautiful haha. there is one guy from america who helped out like 7 collectors to get their dolls for retail price! if he wants the doll I will sell it to him because it's just so amazing that he wanted to help out others and I've told him if I get 2 you are the first to decide if he wants to buy her from me. because it's just nice of him to help all those people. but maybe I have no luck in europa D: I just hope scalpers don't get the change

    Correct, you need to have someone order something for you to deliver to their address and then they mail it here.

    Yup! And the $81 is actually not that bad of a price. I paid Fed-Ex $50 to ship a doll from CA to NY insured for $500.
