I can't really get the system of leaving comments here lol, might send one comment twice, hope I haven't done anything wrong.

@ Cali
The same thing is happening in Russia, only their customs fees are even higher, reaching up to USD 200 or something. They are desperate.

Besides, the situation in Moscow is even worse, because they can't even get their books, there is no FedEx customs broker in Moscow, and they have to take the books to St. Petersburg, which will cost even more, bringing the total amount for ONE Opus to USD 500.

I've written to Andy, waiting for an answer about the way to return my Opus and get my money back.
I have also written in Opus Facebook, but it looks like they have simply deleted my complaint as soon as I posted it.

@ THEMJJ & CALI
THIS IS IT another one discrimination in the long list of discriminations around the world.
And i wanted so bad that 20% discount for my next OPUS.LOL ;)Eye-wink

More in a bit.

for the person that responded from houston,

i also live in houston and purchased mine in sept.

i contacted opus today because i had not received my tracking # either.

within a 4 hour time frame i got a fedex email stating my tracking # and when it will arrive.

will not get it until dec. 24th. hopefully i do.

by reading what everyone is posting i am too very disappointed in the opus people not giving us what they advertised originally. i feel if michael were still alive he would be very uphappy about this for his fans.

hopefully his estate will get this straightened out also before they try to release another one.

but even if they don't this man and his music will never be forgotten. he had set the bar and no one has even come close to it and probably never will. i saw him twice here in houston in the late 80's and still remember those performances from even back than. just remarkable.

listened to his music alot and followed everything he did but since his death listen to it continuously.
and have tried to read up on him more and more.

the entertainment world has lost a great entertainer that is for sure.

love and miss you mj

Good morning everyone. I'm trying to prop my eyelids open with toothpicks, so forgive me for being brief at the moment *EDIT (I guess I wasn't brief after all. lol) *end. I promise to reply here to everyone (from today and yesterday) shortly. I need to check do my morning rounds to see if there is any new news before I update.

Also, if anyone gets any communication from Opus Media Group (OMG) please copy/paste it here. Please remove any of your personal information before you hit save. This will also help your fellow fans.

If you are on TWITTER , you could retweet using the link at the top of this page (retweet) or something like (and in your native language)

Have you received your Michael Jackson Opus? Please comment http://bit.ly/7XqBgW

<strong>Liis</strong>-- I would ask you this simple question-- have you received <strong>any </strong>communication whatsoever via your email from Opus or Ticketmaster (if you purchased through them) or any company directly related to your purchase through Opus? There was an email on 12/18 sent that most people received about only 1 glove and no Opus Reality card being mailed. Here's the one I received:

http://calimjfan.blogspot.com/2009/12/opus-email-from-opus-media-group.html

ISo if you DID get it (or something like it), then you did nothing whatsoever incorrect when you ordered and they should have your correct contact information. But please remember, you are not alone in not having received a message so don't beat yourself up thinking that you did something wrong okay?

Be sure to check your spam/junk mail folder for anything also-- however I could assume these would not go to most people's spam/junk mail folders. (just be care of the scams out there trying to lure you into thinking you just inherited a lot of money-- Fed Ex does NOT send those kind of emails!).

If might be wise to confirm with Fed Ex somehow if you can do that without a tracking number. Maybe if you give them your address they could check but I don't know for sure.

<strong>This sure would be easier if OMG just communicated the expected delivery date by country so people would stop being so anxious and upset. It is very clear that the promised delivery dates that have been given have passed-- so a simple update by country would not be so hard. Especially since there are only 100 countries to list (according to communication on their site). </strong>

Again,, please allow me to make the rounds around the internet to see if there is anything new to report and I'll be back here shortly. Much L.O.V.E. to everyone! Hang in there!

In the meantime, go to this link and give it a minute to allow it to upload all the pretty pictures! They will make you SMILE!

I posted this earlier in the other Opus comment section. I thought I should bring it here:

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!! I just received it. I have to go to work, so I only looked at the first 20 pages or so and skimmed through it. It's amazing!!! So many photos that have never been seen before. I'm still crying from looking at giant photos of our beautiful Michael.

It took me quite a while to open it. It's packed very well. It's soooo heavy. Even the red outer cover, with a drawing of Michael on his toes, is beautiful. I only wish Michael could see it. What an amazing tribute to an amazing man. *tears*

I'll add that if anyone is hesitating, don't!! It's a once-in-a-lifetime book about a once-in-a-lifetime person.

I see some are complaining about receiving one glove. That didn't even bother me. If I want, I'll buy another glove. It's not big deal. And I can wait for the media card. The main thing is the BOOK!!! And what a BOOK it is!!

Fed Ex just pulled up and WOW! I got my Opus. This book is VERY HUGE and HEAVY! Beautiful as I'm looking through it. Now some of you have commented that your Opus only came with one glove and no media card.The same goes for me. But what I will do on behalf of everybody is that I will call directly to Opus and I will let them know the situation. I will leave a post on the information that I've gathered tomorrow. I'm not upset cause I know this will be solved. The most important thing is that I got my book in pristine condition. My Christmas is complete. Yaaaaay!
