Not yet, but the Twitter Droids informed me yesterday that it should arrive by Wednesday.

I've been looking forward to the Anniversary prog all day... but it's 'Not Available' on the iPad App. As in, it's there, tantalizingly, but won't let me buy it.

What gives?

My print copy hasn't been dispatched yet either.

Had an email this morning from the Shop saying my 40th Anniversary Progs have been dispatched today, so I expect they'll be arriving by the weekend?

Yeah mine has been dispatched today as well. Will have to grab the alternate cover on my way to work. Can't wait to get this read.

Mainly a "digital" collector nowadays, but i might just pop into the newsagents and grab one as well.

Can't wait to get home and have a read, whether digital or physical.

Dispatch email as well.  Both copies winging their way.  At least with this we got the choice, not like the prog 2000 scalpers debacle for subscribers.

I got an email telling me that the A cover was available for order today... although it's been available for preorder with the B cover for a good while now. I've already ordered it a couple of weeks back. (I'm just a bit puzzled that they're telling me that the cover I actually ordered is available for order, rather than both, making me wonder if this is a two part process.)

Nothing about dispatch,but as I ordered it after a lot of people I expect mine to be sent later. It's no problem.

I got the same. 2 emails telling me that cover a and cover b are available but no dispatch notice for the ones I bought.

Ah, so you ordered both James? I just ordered A and just got the notification for that one. So they're telling us the ones we preordered are available then. As I already sent my card details, I won't order it again. Could get a bit expensive.  :lol:

Actually, I wonder if they're doing it this way to give us the opportunity to order the digital versions as well, if we want them, as I don't think they were available for pre-order.

I don't really double dip for format, and usually stick with digital, but as this is a bumper seminal issue, I decided to go the traditional paper route for this, but I know there are plenty who like both for convenience.

I thought this thread was for the usual weekly prog rather than the special, which is why I started a review thread for the special (there's another special thread named 40th anniversary prog too!)

Tips for poor digital subscribers. The special is still marked as not available on the iPad app, or at least it is on mine, but if you buy it from the website it can be downloaded in app.
