Found 17th JanMade hot 17th Jan
Credit to Greyfox112 for pointing out in my Amazon deal of the same product, it was considerably cheaper @ Speedyhen

£45 as opposed to Amazon's £66.99

Quite a big price difference. Can hukd'ers vouch for Speedyhen as I've not heard of them personally

UK based, 30 day returns policy, free delivery in 2-4 days. Seems pretty good on paper

Speedyhen are good. This is a steal! Heat added

I've used them once before, seemed pretty good

Why would anyone buy this version over the standard one? Standard looks nicer and costs almost 20 quid less.

You're getting a plastic cover which will just get scuffed on a shelf and some gold tinted pages. Not even an art print extra!

They take money straight away though

I've bought from them before plus their faq states it's taken at dispatch. They must have tried to authorise it with a quid or something. They wouldn't actually take the money.

5% off code for new customers too, 'NEWCUSTOMER'

I have had nothing but issues with this company.

Pre-ordered a few things only to have them cancel and then list at a higher price. Joke of a company.

So they are a lot like Zavvi?

Price increased to £48 now

Books disappeared off of the site now!

I ordered something from this site a couple months ago. Delivery wasn't the quickest but no issues otherwise.

Probably out of stock - not unlikely when this is a limited edition.



FWIW, after many past orders with SpeedyHen, they've always been good for me. On one occasion the book arrived slightly damaged, but they replaced it promptly once I provided a photo.

I ordered the Dark Souls 3 Hardcover guide form them, I received the guide a week after the release date of the guide, so had already done most of the game before it came

Seems they've cancelled my order Anyone else had the same? Pre-ordered mine yesterday afternoon and now they are telling me they have low stock.

​cancelled mine too. won't be using them again, seems like people saying they were unreliable were right.

Cancelled too, watch them restock it at a higher price

Ordered mine last night around 11pm, still says 'On Order', shall await the dreaded cancellation!

Got mine cancelled too

That sucks guys.my apologies. I felt it sounded too good to be true. Seems the feedback is more negative than positive

Speedyhen is one to avoid. From the dark ages of online shopping where this used to fly

Yeah, mine just been cancelled

mine got cancelled after i cancelled my last one on the book depository **** this

re bought from the book depository for 60 so stupid,why have it in stock then cancel orders

Cancelled too.
Also had the Twilight Princess collector's edition guide cancelled before.
So far not reliable at all.
Standard version seems in stock and wasn't cancelled. Has a nicer cover and half the price to be fair.

They have given me a £5 off next order voucher though, so I'm just going to have to settle with the standard edition, it's going to be a gift anyway.

Forbidden planet took down there stock earlier stating 'the book has been discontinued because of the 10k ww limit. I expect which ever companies are stocking this will over sell and disappoint a lot of people just like the ce of hyrule historia.

Yeah, the cancellation email said

"I regret to inform you that the title you have ordered ( LEGEND OF ZELDA ART & ARTIFACTS) has been unexpectedly popular and we are unable to keep up with the customer demand we have had.
Due to the title being limited edition we are unable to fulfil customers’ orders due to the publisher withdrawing from printing any further copies. For this reason I regret to inform you that we have had no choice but to cancel your order and refund any money taken which I do sincerely apologise for."

they just canceled my order

Unsure if I should swap my early amazon preorder with a book depository one I know its cheaper but with places canceling orders I don't want to miss out.

Amazon only charge you after despatch on preorders. You can always pay for the cheaper one you've found first and if it does arrive, cancel or return your Amazon purchase

Again; me personally I've never heard of the book depository either. They look no better or worse than Speedyhen and they obviously just cancelled orders

I can vouch for both stores, though couldn't really say that either was better than the other.

I have used book depository before and they have delayed orders indefinitely, and amazon is just as bad with limited print items too, its just a game of chance at this stage.

I don't really order much from Zavvi so no idea...

But seems as so I was right. Sorry guys/girls but I would avoid this company.

It appears a leopard never changes its spots. Of course you'll get the odd positive review but law of averages dictates that.

The frequency of negative comments should have been warning enough but cheers for the heads up anyway

It was worth posting due to the off-chance you may actually have gotten it at this price, but unfortunately this company does this time and time again.

I didn't vote hot or cold.

So that's my order now cancelled too. I placed mine pretty much immediately upon this price being highlighted in the Amazon thread (my confirmation email was timed at 6.12pm), so I guess that no-one here's getting the book from SpeedyHen.

You're right, 1 order and nothing but issues...

I too have had nothing but issues. I ordered a book that arrived looking like they'd had a quick game of football with it in the warehouse. I sent a nice email. Can you imagine their response? They told me to keep the book, and they will give me a refund! How dare they!? I cannot believe the fantastic service of this company it is a complete (non) disgrace, I can believe they are still in business!
