Did mine awhile ago. Some info for the curious:

The 'album club' is a separate item, so if a slipcase and poster don't seem worth the extra money, you aren't required to buy it too. It's set to 'launch' on April 4, so perhaps we'll start getting the album previews and whatnot then..

I purchased both and the total was.. well, it looks like this:
4/1/2008 VISA CHECK CARD PURCHASE QUEEN ONLINE STORE DOM GB $35.76

They already made a pre-charge ;) Actually looks like it might be posted soon, so perhaps they aren't gonna wait til it ships.

Anyway, that's a heck of a lot of money so I hope it's worth it. I'm thinking I'd have been better off just doing the album club for about $4 and buying the regular CD on the date for $10. *sigh*

What exactly are they going to ship to you in the near future, if the album is released in five months? The poster and slipcase? :/

I'd buy the album from QOL but ONLY if they could guarantee I would receive it either before the day of release or ON the day of release and not a week later after I could have bought it in the shops.

Well I don't expect the album to be shipped *that* early (though it would be nice). It's just customary for merchants not to charge before an item is shipped, or ready to be shipped. That's what I meant. I actually don't mind though. I'd rather know the exact total now than having an unknown charge with an unknown date hanging over my head for months.
