I just called WDW Merchandise Mail Order at 407-363-6200 yesterday to order the LE version, which after shipping, came out to $140.93. The woman I spoke to assured me it was the Limited Edition, and not the Special Edition. Can anyone who's recently ordered from WDW Merchandise Mail Order confirm that I will in fact be receiving the LE? And one more thing, if the LE is limited to 5000 sets, how are people getting set with numbers higher than 5000? Just curious. Thank you!
Hi.I think this was asked before.There were more than 5000 produced at the factory,but only 5000 for sale to the public.There were some that were destroyed due to production problems.Since some sets numbered below 5000 were destroyed,there are sets available numbered above 5000.It would have cost more to make sets numbered between 1 and 5000.Hope I explained that right.
I can't answer the first questions, but as far as the last question goes, Randy Thornton mentioned something in a previous post about how they printed extra numbers because some of the those numbered sets were faulty. So basically, there are only 5000 being released, but the numbers on them will exceed 5000 in some cases.
Carlos, I just posted this in another thread, but it should apply to you as well...
As of last night (5/18), WDW still had about 100 left on property. That includes about 30 at Mail Order. So you should be getting the Limited Edition! If you want to be sure, call them back and verify that the SKU number for your order is 12818190.
