My Amazon.co.uk order arrived today in Vancouver. The packaging was not good at all and looking at the "box envelope" before opening had me EXTREMELY nervous. It was a very thin cardboard material in the shape of a mailer envelope without any padding/protection between the product and outer cardboard package.

Thankfully though there was no damage. Pristine as can possibly be.

The weird part though is that my E.T. steelbook from Amazon.co.uk arrived at the same time in a separate package that was thicker cardboard and shaped like a box with inserts to hold and protect the product from outside force/pressure. Shouldn't Amazon.co.uk be using consistent packaging across all of their steelbook shipments? Especially given that the two items shipped less than 1 day apart from the same location?

Got my 3 Ghostbusters steels from play.com - immaculate as usual.

Anyone who thinks that the second one is better than the first one needs their head examining in my opinion. The second one is good but its not the classic that the first one is.

Amazon UK need to take a leaf out of Play's book when it comes to Steelbook packaging.

Both Films are AMAZING...but for me and many others, the 2nd Film just has something more about it.

Also...why did you order 3 Ghostbusters Steelbooks?...bit greedy ain't it lol.

Only those not into Steels would think that way. Those into Steels on the other hand will rejoice and eat it up. Or they might say "Feed! Me! More! Feed! Me! More! Feed! Me! More!"


P.S.
So Sony on Nov. 5th released just 3 Steels? Just Hellboy, Ghostbusters, and The Evil Dead? Or did they release more? Which ones? Are they Region Free too?

It is CRAZY no doubt about it.

They also released Men in Black 3 on the 5th, but that's not the same I s'pose
Don't know whether it's region free or not, sorry

I wouldn't say great, but certainly better than those who use bubble mailers.

Play is far and away the best with their thick boxes and sponge filling. The chances of the steelbook getting damaged in that packaging must be nearly zero. I still worry slightly with Amazon and my Spider-Man that came from Amazon.de which uses the same packaging came damaged (maybe because it had further to travel). The same with HMV, the cardboard box is thick and I haven't had one damaged yet, but there's no additional support so there's always that moment of trepidation when I open it.

Respect for Play for evolving from Steelbook demolishers to champion of protective packaging!

I think Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol was the last straw for them. The amount of horror stories we heard about damaged copies of such a popular title were sky-high. That and the fact that people ended up without it because they ran out of stock so could only get a refund or 1 off (or similar).

We now return you to your Ghostbusters thread.

I eagerly await a gb2 blu-ray release, and seriously hope dan ackroyd wasn't telling porkies about a gb2 blu-ray release being in the works.

Agreed.
Hates:
3D, 3D printed on the front covers of steelbooks, digital copies (UV & iTunes), "retailer exclusive" bonus features.

Also, f*ck you, Disney UK for giving "The Avengers" a stupid name in the UK! Will NEVER use the UK "name".
