Several weeks ago we passed along word
that the long-delayed final DVD release of this show, Steve Canyon - The Complete TV Series, Volume 3
, would begin shipping today, December 5th. Over this past weekend, however, DVD producer John Ellis informed customers
that there was a last-second delay to that ship date, pushing the clearance-for-takeoff back to no sooner than December 14th
. Here's a quote from the Steve Canyon
We've Still Got A Few Gremlins...
Birth pangs...last minute whatever-you-might-call-it...and not to belittle the situation, but it IS COMING and that's the main thing (I keep being reminded of this by everyone)...both Volume 1 and 2 had last minute delays as well, so I tell myself "why should this be any different."
Other than the finishing of all of the elements that go into V3, the big issue has been that we have been waiting on a lump-sum payment from my sister's estate which we have been waiting for for exactly the last year...which we need to cover the expensive manufacturing fees of V3. Well we finally received it last week, but the bank put a 14 day hold on it, and can't transmit funds to the manufacturer until that hold is released.
Mind you we have already submitted some already-available funds to the manufacturer so certain things (i.e. the slipcover) we expect to arrive imminently, but they won't finish the final work on V3 until we can pay them in full, and that is the hang-up.
So to put it plainly we are now looking at having everything in hand and ready to ship sometime between the 14th and the 20th of this month...still in time for Christmas, and so I'm going to say the week of December 14th, fingers crossed.
To make up for the situation, John has filled up the blog with images of all the artwork you'll find on the packaging, inside and out, for this final title. Head on over there and check it out! Here, of course, is the front of the box...the rest is at John's blog post!
