I've seen lots of people complaining about not getting any response to messages but I sent a message via FB messenger on Saturday (1st Feb) about one of the books in latest delivery being damaged (due to being delivered in a plastic bag) & received a reply on Wednesday (5th Feb) to say they're arranging a replacement. Whether a replacement actually arrives is another thing but I've found them to be generally fine the 5 or so times I've needed to contact them.

Just tried to buy Strontium Dog volume 6 (issue 52, vol 9) and it’s out of stock. 😬

Forbidden Planet hasn’t got it either -online or in the London shop. No luck at Orbital either 😢.
I've got a replacement copy of Volume 9 on the way due to spine printing misalignment on my first copy (slight overlap of the spine image onto the cover) so will probably stick the first copy on eBay when the new one arrives but if you're still looking & aren't bothered about the spine image too much then I'm open to selling direct instead. There seems to be a few copies of Volume 9 on eBay with the same printing issue as my copy (but don't seem to mention it) so I guess my replacement copy may have the same issue anyway (but hopefully not).

Have any other figurines or extras been dispatched with these issues? (45-56)?
Most recent one was Rogue Trooper, which came a couple of deliveries back, so probably with issues 51/52.

I've just checked & my volume 35 spine is off (only by a couple of mm) but while checking this I now see the spine for volume 9 is also completely off! I'll contact them via FB & see what happens.

Anyone know what the next premium sub figure will be? Feel like I haven't had a premium gift for a while now...
Assuming the figures come in the order listed on the Ultimate Collection site the next figure will be Nikolai Dante, followed by Judge Dredd then Rogue Trooper. The next figure should come with delivery of issues 51/52 (i.e. the next delivery, depending on how up-to-date your subscription is).

I'm not sure about everyone else but the account shows 'Direct Debit Payment - Thank you' for the 1st March but the payment actually came out my account on 15th March. Similarly my account shows payment taken on 29th March but the payment is likely to actually leave my account on something like the 12th April. It's pretty consistent I think.

Well having received 39 & 40 last week & with issue 41 not out yet (although due out tomorrow) I guess that's most people basically brought unexpectedly up to date, even if it's only for a day or two?

I was just wondering about when the Halo Jones figure arrived - for any premium subscribers - I thought mine would arrive with issues 35 and 36.

(I went on the Hachette Managing Subscription page that 'Premium 3' was not sent.)
Just wondering if anyone else received Halo Jones with the 35/36 bundle or if it should arrive with 37/38?
The figurines are supposed to come every 7th delivery (i.e. every 14 books) & the last one came with issues 23/24 (shows in hachette account as PREMIUM 2) so the next one should be due with 37/38.

I just got a response via Facebook:
We have reactivated your account and opted you out from receiving specials . you will get issues as normal no specials will be added or sent to you.

I only messaged them last night so pretty quick response. Still pretty amazed that they'd cancelled my subscription without being asked. I guess I now need to wait to see if they've ballsed up my subscription now.

The email also came from hachetted400cancellations@jacklinservice.com so looks they genuinely have cancelled my subscription despite the subject field & email itself clearly stating 2000AD Covers Special & the email not mentioning the words subscription or cancel once. Jesus that's ridiculous!

It still says 'running' but I assume that might not update straight away. When I emailed to cancel the first covers book the response said:
Kindly note you have been opted out from receiving the special.

Whereas this didn't mention the special at all, just the subscription. I'm wondering if they can actually be that terrible to cancel a subscription when my email clearly stated that I didn't want to receive the covers book.

Also, I still have no idea if I'm subscribed again or not and no-one will tell me. Sigh
Well I've emailed them to say I don't want the covers special (again) & had this response today (2 weeks after my email was sent):

Thank you for taking the time to write to us .

Subscriber Number:

Kindly be advised that we hyave cancelled your subscription and no further issues will be allocated to you.

If you require any  additional information , please feel free to contact us .

Kind regards

Customer Care

It's not clear whether they have actually cancelled my Ultimate Collection subscription or just the covers book (which was clearly stated in my email but isn't mentioned anywhere in the response above). Based on their noted incompetence I'm concerned that it's the former rather than the latter. If anyone can confirm they've received a similar response to their request to not be sent the covers book it would be slightly reassuring at least.
