I was perturbed by the 90 character limit in the personalization box. I really had to get creative in editing my question to make it super succinct. 

But in the end, super stoked by this book! Who cares that my question may not be clear now. Yay for new, collector's editions of Brandon Sanderson books for my shelf!

Not until it arrives, I think. I just appreciate a number at all though. I waited too long to order Elantris last year and almost didn't end up with a copy.

Same :(

$223.29 for shipping to the uk.. ouch. Totally worth it though! Seems like a lot shifted, saw people on Reddit stating they ordered 4 mins after opening and had order numbers ~21000... I was 6-7 mins and #~21800..

I also ordered from the UK but mine was $135.50 - did you pick the most expensive shipping option?

I'm not sure if Brandon's Store Order number means anything for your book number. My order for the release of AU was 21853. My order for Mistborn is 20920. Does the store recycle order numbers? Maybe. (Why they would seems odd to me.) Was I the 920th person to order the Mistborn book once it became available? I doubt it.

Yeah I wasn't sure on using USPS so went for the courier, I was pretty spaced after waking up at 04:45 to order it ha.

Good to see the order numbers aren't sequential, really hoping for a reasonably low numbered book.

Haha yeah. I asked him 3 related questions, but with 90 characters I had to go super caveman.  I hope he knows there is a 90 char limit and he doesn't think I'm a super moron.

I ordered within the first hour, so I kinda hope it's in the top hundred. Would have been closer, but I was busy when it was made available. My best number so far is #26 for Shadows Beneath.

I ordered pretty early but had trouble with making my question fit 90 characters. I also wanted a message for my DD's birth. I put the original text and more info on baby into the instructions section.

I asked about the (AU spoilers)

Gas giants

And if they ever came into the story.

Also, since I'm pretty young, last year I didn't have my own money and couldn't order Elantris. Is there a solution for that, or are there just no more books?

You can still order Elantris, just not a numbered copy.

Maybe try Subterranean Press?  They are getting copies.  They'll be signed and a lower number than from Brandon's webstore.

Man, I had the same problem. I was reduced to counting characters to get it to fit, but I think I got it.  It doesn't help that I am excessively wordy. <_<

I just received my shipping-confirmation email. Should be here Wednesday :D 

Anyone received their copy yet?? Is it as awesome (or even more so) than the Elantris edition was?

I got my ship notification, too!  I honestly wasn't expecting to see any movement until January.  I am excite.

According to tracking, mine should be here today, although I have my doubts about Its accuracy.

I get why there is a character limit, but I found 90 to be super restrictive.  I was not planning on writing him a novel, but I had to greatly reduce the specificity of my question to get it to fit.  a 250 character limit would have been nicer.

My tracking said Saturday that it would be here by Wednesday, but as of tonight it's still on the same "label created" step, so I have major doubts *sad-face

Update: It is Wednesday. It is here. It is beautiful. Even more so than the Elantris edition, I can't wait to a) start reading it tonight and b ) have the matching books in 2017 and 2018. The only concern I have (which is admittedly worrying about a problem maybe 15 years away) is that the Mistborn leather edition is of a different, higher quality leather, and there are minute adjustments such as the black back-plate to the title and author's name on the ends. It looks awesome and it made it look way better (which I didn't even know was possible), but I wonder if they will continue these improvements when/if Brandon makes the anniversary editions to Elantris? Will the sequels be the same quality as Mistborn, and therefore not match Elantris? And if so will there be an option to buy a new Elantris book that matches those patterns for people who are as obsessive as me? Or will they just keep all the sequels the same leather/style as the original? Like I said, optimistically this wouldn't even be a problem for another 15 years, but I can't help but wonder lmao.
