Commenting here so it comes up in case anyone else finds future Hachette tests. Got the Aliens/Predator books in the post for free today.

Here goes.

I'm sure that's the same site I signed up to for the test. No mention on Forbidden Planet of preorders.

You know, they look nice and this is a series I'm not as familiar as I'd like to be with.

My reservation?  Comments on the tooth collection thread about how they seem to have gone seriously downhill since the Dredd Mega collection.

Just highlights how much better the Cheyenne Dropship (from Aliens) looks when viewed on a dark stormy planetoid (i.e. when you can hardly see it)...

The books are fine. The service is borderline abysmal, although they do at least send replacements on request. (That said, about 90% of those I’ve asked for should not have been necessary – either loss or avoidable damage.)

That's what has me concerned.  IIRC most of the Aliens / Predator material is colour so repro shouldn't be so much of an issue but the number of complaints about dispatch, packaging, printing errors raises the question of whether it is worth trusting them any more.

A new page has appeared for an X-Men partwork from Hachette. I expect it is another test.

Thanks!

I do love a free book or two.

Shame we have no more news on the Aliens/Predator one.

The X-men one has been running for a while now.  Local Smiths have had most of the issues to date.  No sign of the A/P series.  Then again Dark Horse do seem to be upping their game so considering the dogs breakfast that Hachette seem to be making of the Tooth series ...

I find Hatchette fine actually. Eaglemoss slightly better. Both are better than Deagostini
