Here in Bogotá, a friend got his vinyls last friday. I hope that mine arrive this week... (keep my fingers crossed).

Well, mine never arrived. I contacted support and U2 team told me that they would forward my vinyls, so I hope get them this time ?

My lost vinyls appear today, but in poor condition and not because of the courier service ? all the boxes of my vinyls are in a poor state, vinyls packaging are broken in two sides, every package, like they were cut with a knife and the plastic was in perfect condition so the vinyls came from production in bad conditions and they weren't damaged by courier services. Like they didn't check them by quality control.  So sad ?

The records are heavy. If the package is thrown around at all (which I'm sure 99.9% of packages are), the force of the records impacting the sides of the sleeves is going to cause this damage. It wasn't a knife that cut the sleeves - it was the records themselves that cut the sleeves.

It's possible but the outer cardboard wrap is intact and below it were the boxes cut, and the plastic package was intact too, in all its borders. It's something weird. Btw, only me? How lucky I am ?

No, it wasn't only you. See this post earlier in this same thread:

 

Oh, OK, he is accompanied in his grieving ?. But like I said, it's weird that the outer cardboard wrap and plastic package are intact. Other friends here in Bogotá got theirs vinyls in good condition using our national postal service. Well, U2 team had reshipped my vinyls because they don't appear, and when they get stock again, nevertheless I would be happy only with new vinyl record jackets.

Still waiting.... I've been a fanclub member since day 1 and never had any problems before, but this is getting absolutely ridiciulous, ordered it a year ago.

U2's 'helpdesk' isn't helpful at all, they just acknowledge the fact that there is a delay and I'm supposed to wait for a shipping confirmation (which according to a lot of users don't seem to be send out).

Gonna contact them again.

I'm still waiting too. It bothers me every single day. I'm more afraid than annoyed at this stage. I'm a bit of a "collector", and I would hate to think I miss out on this gift. I just have this bad feeling that finally it's going to end in being contacted to say, "OK sorry folks, no more supplies and we're not producing any more." I've contacted support too many times. I wish the communication was more systematic (and believable somehow). We need a "champion" amongst the moderators maybe? Someone with the connections to get concrete confirmation on this.
