Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - start your engines. You're about to take an incredible ride with one of the most wonderful family films of all time! Now celebrating its 35th anniversary, Chitty Bang has never looked or sounded better. With its clever tunes (including the Oscar-nominated (1968) title song), marvellous cast and enchanting storyline, this delightful family film, is lots of fun and simply "toot sweet" to pass up!
Dick Van Dyke stars as eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts, who creates an extraordinary car that not only drives but also flies and floats, as it leads him, his two children and the beautiful Trully Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) into a magical world of pirates, castles and endless adventure!

Thats a cracking price, ordered a one, cheers :-D

I think I saw these in Costco for about £12 so the RRP may be a little ambitious. Good deal though!

There's only a couple of retailers selling at RRP. £18 seems about the right price - Here's a screen grab from find-dvd.

Just checked my order summary from HMV about the set and it says....

Item deleted-we are trying to obtain this from alternate sources.....

I don't think i'll get this(not at £6.49)
#6
mine says

Your order is now available and is awaiting shipment

thanks bookie

Voted HOT!

Not due to be released until tomorrow (5th November) apparently, but available for Pre-Order.

Order placed and accepted (at £6.49), but if the last DVD I ordered from HMV is anything to go by, I will not receive it for 10 days or so.

Edit: Just received email from HMV confirming order & price... so far, so good!

Just checked Account Status though, and it says: "Item to be ordered from supplier", which probably means an even longer wait!

Great price but a few days too late for me. I ordered the cd for £9.99 - 15% disc code.
#9
Managed to cancel my previous order, so gone for this. Big cheers
#10
got one too
i love that film and my youngest is chitty on the brain

think we have worn out the dvd we had

went to see the live show last crimbo and had to spend the next day building the cardboard cut out chitty you get with the programme at the theatre

heat and rep added

What are HMV playing at... the now tell me "Item deleted - we are trying to obtain this item from alternate sources."

Bearing in mind that this item is only officially being released today, that does seem to me like rather a strange comment to make, especially as it seems they have obviously previously received, and sent out this particular item to some customers... such as the OP for example!

My opinion of them has just dropped even lower.

I'm confused as well about this as well as my order status says exactly the same-yet Bookie says his order's been dispatched!

Hmm...Not sure what's going on either ern :-(

Mine's dispatched and on it's way according to HMV so I guess they only had limited stock or perhaps just don't want to honour orders at the price quoted. I know this managed to find its way over onto Rpoints so perhaps there were quite a few orders placed for the set.

Anyways - hope it works out for you ok :)
#14
Perhaps Bookie and Jasongoodall could let us know when they actually receive this particular item.... thanks.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if it reappears on HMV's website within the next day or so, but at a higher price... especially if it is a new release, which will probably be quite a good Christmas seller.

Although the original link page still shows it at the same price, it says 'unavailable' and 'sorry, this title is deleted'.

A case of "watch this space" I reckon!

Thought this has been out for a while - remember seeing it in hmv before - Is it a rerelease?
#16
Website says it's unavailable-needs to be expired.

Yes-it has been released before in 2003.
#17
From the comments on the HMV website, I am assuming this is a re-release to co-incide with the current stage show.... could be wrong though.

My guess is that they have currently 'pulled' it as it was probably a misprice.
#18
Got mine and am delighted with it.

Comes in a really decent (big) presentation box with:-

Double Disk Special Edition DVD of the film with 'pop-up' cover
Die-cast Corgi car
23 track CD of the Musical - shrink wrapped
Book

Can't find the free ticket offer yet and wondering whether HMV have forgotten to include the details.

Must have been a misprice :thumbsup:
#19
Well done Bookie.

My order status is still the same as before (#12) and I will be very surprised if I ever recive my order.

I certainly won't be in any hurry to order from HMV again!
#20
Hmm, I got the 'item deleted' email when I tried to order the Ultimate Force box set at £11.99. It's not deleted at all, they've got it in stock, but at a ridiculous £69.99. A friend of mine got his delivered though. I think they will only sell a limited number at the cheap price and when they reach that amount, they fob everyone else off with the 'deleted' lie. It's probably some marketing ploy to rustle up interest...:x
#21
You could well be right Alaska.

I see that they are currently offering a 'Special Edition' 2 DVD pack for £4.99 (RRP £24.99) which they say was released on 5-11-2007 (same as the 'missing' boxed set).

They do however quote 'despatched within 4 days', and it is my guess that this is what they intended to offer in the first place, but had a few of the 'Special Edition' sets in stock, which they sent out first to the early birds, like Bookie!
#22
Anybody else received their order for this yet besides Bookie?

My order status still says item deleted....
#23
No, same as you little ern. Expect the cancellation email will arrive next week.

Got the cancellation e-mail this morning.....
#25
Me too!
#26
HMV must have found some more of these supposedly deleted box sets as they're listed on their site for £8.99.

£16.93 is the next cheapest price online.
#27
Have just ordered it again... wonder if I will receive it this time... or not?

EDIT: Looks like they are up to their old tricks again... I have just checked my order status, and it says "Item to be ordered from supplier".

This is exactly what I was told last time... before they eventually cancelled my order.

So much for them actually being in stock!
#28
HMV really are useless!

Checked my order status again this morning, and it now says:

"Item deleted - we are trying to obtain this item from alternate sources."

Looks like another waste of time!
#29
Much to my surprise, I have just received an email from HMV apologising for the delay, and advising me that my order is finally "in the post".

I only hope that it is indeed the full boxed set, as advertised, like Bookie received last year... we shall see!

EDIT: Just had a look back on their website, and it look as if they have now removed this particular item altogether, and replaced it with the 2 DVD Special Edition, priced at £16.99... wonder if that is what I will actually receive.
