[Probably not, unless they ordered it directly through TLG rather than going through a distributor like Alliance or Diamond (or even Ingram).
Do you happen to know if TLG are shipping the books to the distributors themselves or if they had them shipped directly from the printer? If the latter, then the distributors probably got their shipments around the same time TLG did (last Friday) and may have already started shipping out to retail (including amazon). But if the distributors are waiting to receive shipment from TLG then it could take a couple more weeks before we start seeing it in stores (virtual and otherwise).
Well, I just put my order in. I've seen several discussions, but not a single comment by someone that actually seems to have the product. Just general statements like 'it's good', and rehashed comments that have been circulating on the TLG site for months.
I just got it in my mail on Friday. Was it worth the wait? Yes. A detailed review will have to wait -- keep in mind that it is 256 pages long. Yggsburgh, the town proper, is as Gygaxian as anything else, T1 and B2 included, and the wilderness area is very well developed. Even the place-names (Old Oaks Grove, Hiddendale, Glittering Knobs, etc.) are evocative.
It is not without its editorial gaffes, of course, but the quality of the content is such that these can be easily overlooked.

Well, I wouldn't mind that particular concept but he wanted to do that exclusively and then follow up with the rest of the dungeon. Then I suggested doing the campaign thing since thats what the Greyhawk fiends have been waiting for: an elaborated Gygaxian base camp.
I think it was on the Dragonsfoot forum where that went down.
