OPUS

  • on: December 17, 2009, 11:42:26 AM
Just wondering if anybody here has or is going to get it. Too pricey for me but I'd love to hear about it. I think the computer card that was meant to allow future updates (on Michael's activities/life perhaps?) is something worth keeping an eye on.

I think its like $249 bucks. That's the price I saw in one of the Jet magazines recently. Would love to get it but not at this time.

I found it too expensive at first, but I ordered it last week... :oops:
So now I have to be very patient, it can take several weeks before it arrives

I pre-order it in September. And they took the money immediately (which I find odd for a pre-order, but ...what can you do about it)
They said that the ones who ordered it before Dec, 1 will receive it latest Dec, 18.
Still checking my mail for their message.

So you haven't received a code yet to track it?

I pre-ordered mine on August 31. Paid $180 (which includes shipping). No tracking number yet, but I did receive this email last week:

As publisher of The Official Michael Jackson Opus, the Opus Media Group would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution to the extraordinary and unprecedented demand for what we believe is a fitting tribute to a true legend.

We wanted to provide you with a delivery update for your Opus. Following the hugely successful launch of The Official Michael Jackson Opus in Los Angeles earlier this week, inclement weather conditions and customs intervention have caused us to adjust our shipping schedule slightly for the Opus. Below is the updated Opus shipping schedule:

For Opus orders placed before December 1:
Rest assured that your Opus will be delivered well before Christmas and, in the majority of cases, by December 18 2009. To help you better track your package, once your order is fulfilled, you will be sent a shipping email and tracking code from Fedex, either later today or early next week.

For Opus orders placed December 2 and after:
Opus Media Group will make every effort possible to ensure these are also delivered before Christmas, but we can only guarantee delivery before Christmas for orders placed before December 1. To help you better track your package, once your order is fulfilled, you will also be sent a shipping email and tracking code from Fedex.

We know your Official Michael Jackson Opus will provide you with beautiful and lasting memories of Michael Jackson. We sincerely thank you for your patronage and your patience.

Dear Christiana,
I received the same mail. Dec.18 is tomorrow so ... I don't think they will keep their promise.
At least we know that we will receive it...sometime in the near future...

I agree with you, Emma. But I tell you what, if I don't receive my Opus by December 24th, then those Opus folks are going to get a seriously NOT NICE letter and/or phone call from me about it after Christmas. I did not pay all that money, on August 31st no less, with a guarantee of Christmas delivery, to have it come later. To me, that would make them liars and thieves just cashing in on MJ like so many others do. They've had my money for almost 4 months, so I want my freaking Opus. WAHHHHHHHH!  :evil:   :roll:

My husband ordered it for me in November...he thought he was sneaky but he wasn't.  :lol:   Anyway, it's still not been delivered, as far as I know.  He's going to be pretty upset if he can't give it to me for Christmas.  They should have never guaranteed a Christmas delivery if they knew it wasn't a definite thing...sounds like there are going to be a lot of angry customers.

Look at the message I've got today from the Opus company:

Dear customer,

We have received some calls from customers regarding the absence of the Opus Reality Card in the Opus and asking why there is only one glove included.

We took the decision to include just one white glove purely as a further tribute to Michael Jackson. The single white glove is an iconic and defining symbol of the man and his extraordinary career and we thought it only fitting to include just one glove with your Opus. We hope that this is an understandable decision.

Please be assured that the promised Opus Reality feature is very much part of the Opus offering, but we want to ensure that this is something only available to our customers. With that in mind, it has been decided that this should be offered through a secure and protected online forum. In the New Year, you will be provided with your own unique pass code to a secure area of the Opus web site. The Opus Reality trigger card will be available to download from the site and used to access footage that will be presented in a way that will hopefully provide you with a unique ‘Michael Jackson Experience’. The benefit of using this system is that it significantly reduces the possibility of non-Opus customers being able to access this experience.

We are committed to bringing you a selection of Opus Reality footage over the coming year with the first example ready for you before the end of January 2010.

We hope that this has helped to address these queries.

Have a great holiday.

Sincerely,

Opus Media Group.

customercare@michaeljacksonopus.com
 
Nothing about the delivery date, but they let us know that we will receive one glove instead of two and no card. What a BS!!!
Maybe soon they will tell that we will receive only half of the book.

None of my friends or anyone I speak to who are fans are going to buy it-I think because of the price sales will be disappointing. I can see in a few months or in the near future the price coming down.

Yeah that's pretty lame that they're not giving the card as they promised to begin with. I think they gave a lame excuse too.

I received my Opus today!! It is huge and extremely heavy!! A lot of the pics I have seen, and really haven't been able to read that much yet since i worked today. I did notice that there is now RIP or pics of after his death like other books or commerative stuff. I did not receive the cover like they mentioned and the front of the case is hand painted and I fear without a cover it will come off eventually. I can't wait to REALLY read it but again the book is HUGE and HEAVY!!

It will be something I will always treasure and am glad I got it. Did not get the interactive stuff either. Got the one glove,red case and the Opus inside no recipt or letter or anything which I found strange but it is beautiful. Alot of pictures of the art he had painted for him. Unfortunetly since the book is so large you can not copy or scan the pictures. I really don't know where I will put a book this large. Can't wait to really get to read and study this book.

I can't wait for others to get theirs so we can compare notes!!

Well, that's very interesting!!!! So they don't mention that he has died at all??

Maybe everyone who ordered must send an email about the reality card, I mean, we paid for it, so we have to get it!
