For those wondering why you cant pre-order,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled (Iron Man / The Incredible Hulk / Iron Man 2 / Thor / Captain America: The First Avenger / The Avengers) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
"In August 2012, luggage company Rimowa GmbH, who developed the briefcase for The Avengers, filed suit against Marvel Studios and Buena Vista Home Entertainment in U.S. federal court, complaining that "Marvel did not obtain any license or authorization from Rimowa to make replica copies of the cases for any purpose". The set has since been delayed."

I heard about that... Hopefully Disney will pay the guy off and just release this set a little late.

Really hoping they straighten this out... I pre-ordered this with the express hope that I would be getting it on its release day as Amazon Prime stated, but if I have to wait for several more months to get it, I might just cave and buy the ordinary Blu-ray/DVD combo pack instead...

I did too, but when I heard about the legal trouble I presumed it would never be released, and went and put down a deposit at Best Buy to get the steelbook pre-order bonus. :D If this ends up getting released, then I guess I'll have a $7.50 steelbook laying around.

Since amazon is still saying people who pre ordered this are still getting it the day they are supposed to get it does that mean thay have it in there warehouses already or they just dont know anything?

I dont see how the maker has a case. While it is a replica, it's not like it can be used as an actual briefcase. Hopefully, this gets resolved within the next two weeks.

If you're looking for an alternative, consider getting this at Target instead. Target's versions of the 2D and 3D combo packs include a Bonus Disc with an additional 90 minutes of content.

I certainly hope so. Also just give the designer credit for the replica, that's a fair settlement.
