Am I the only one who had never had anything from BB damaged during shipping?


I haven't either (including several Steelbooks), but I attribute that to just luck.

I've had plenty of items shipped from BB without issue.

When it comes to steelbooks, my track record isn't great as I had 3 out of 4 Snow White & The Huntsman steelbooks all damaged the same way, packed in a plastic bag.

Target did it to me with the ET Steelbook, though it was a single item shipment, just like the Snow White ones from BB.

If I had to order a steelbook from BB and had to have to ship it, I'd order it with something else that forced the to put it in a box to make sure they couldn't destroy it by shipping it in the aforementioned plastic bag.

I know using Standard or Expedited shipping, a single item doesn't get placed in a box. Rumor is if you have three plus items they use a box. Idr if it was here or BRF where I saw that.

Why is this a thing?


Because I don't have a steelbook of his movies yet, and I thought it'd be nice to add one to my collection?

On the topic of BB shipping, I don't think I've had anything shipped to me damaged but my friend has. And I've definitely gotten stuff poorly packaged in just a bag with no bubble padding or anything. I try to refrain from having them ship to my house if I can help it.

BB uses a box if you have 3+ items

Although BBY website still has the RE:R Steelbook as a pre-order for Dec. 24 release. The stores have them out. There was only three at my store. It is also confirmed by multiple people at bluray.com

so in the pic someone posted here, it looked bigger than bluray size...but pictures can be deceiving.

And can anyone compare with the walmart steels and see if it looks decent in the set?

The steelbook is G2, and it matches fine with the other steelbooks from Walmart. Even the binding is consistent with them. Hope this helps! Sorry no time to take a side by side picture.

thats cool. I want the movie to complete the set, but it was BY FAR the worst of the series and I might not even want to watch it a second time.

They must have fixed the release date, as it was showing Monday as the release date. That's why in-store pickup didn't work because it's not live until release date.

I was kind a puzzled this morning when I tried to order it. I put in a store pickup for the wife to pick up for me while I'm at work. Not trying to go there after work with all the last minute shoppers.

Yup. I went to the store Tuesday to get it, before realizing it has a Friday release for some reason. What idiot thought that up? An ex-Nintendo employee? :roll:

Haha.

Got mine this morning, maybe 10 or so in stock. Hoping it goes on sale next week for a PM!

Mine had about 6 left.

PM'd Cinderella, and Brave 3d for 17.49 while I was there.

I need the ET, and Bourne Legacy steels.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Live in Omaha. Nearest store had 3 RE left. Found one sitting the WB steelbook endcap, great condition but disc is loose....go to CS and they say "we have 3, i can help find them" but CS then gets busy. Go back, find the second, disc is safe but top is dented hardcore then go back to CS and they say "the 3rd is being held so if the loose disc is a problem I can get a new disc?"

Since its 1030 pm, decided to swing by target and got bourne 1 and 2, Im pretty sure ive read this but target wont let me order something and then adjust it to store price right? Its gonna be dang hard to find 3 and 4 since the steelies and regulars are same DPCI for them

There is no $17.49 brave 3d. Best buy gave it to me for that ;) and Costco has the Blue edition Cinderella for $17.49, but I got the Gold one for $17.49.

Christmas is on a Tuesday and stores are closed. This normally happens with movies releasing around Christmas.

Anyone else with the Bourne Legacy Steelbook have one like this? Noticed it a few days ago when I was organizing my blu-ray shelves.
