Grabbed my ISPU today and the copy picked had a faint spine slash. Fortunately there were still 4 copies on the rack so I just swapped it with one of those, no problem. All of them seemed to have the 4K disc floating around inside but everything was mint on the second copy I got. Very pleased with the look of this one.

Just got back from a Best Buy, 4 copies on the shelf, each set with a loose disc rattling around. This must be a thing with the packaging somehow, since so many seem to be seeing/reporting loose discs in these.

I did go to another location, only 1 copy on the shelf, but no rattle/loose disc on that set.

Does anyone know a good source for the cover art for this? As seems to be the usual, the artwork uploaded on this site for steelbooks seems to so often be a rendering of the case at an angle. I need a decent resolution image of the cover to put on my ripped file. The best I can find on the web is a foreign release, which is the same artwork, but it shows the cardboard slip that is dominated by a foreign rating badge... ��

I received my "delayed" email this morning, but decided to stop in anyway. Looks like in my area, my BB didn't receive any copies of either the SB or the regular 4K. Blue shirts told me they expect them to be in soon. Frustrating.

Picked up my copy. Of course the ISPU sticker is placed over the spine so I can't get a good read for any damage.

Come home, unwrapped. Surprise. Literal spine slash on the actual steelbook casing itself and not the spine it normally is.

No worries, as my store had about 10-12 copies on display.

My ISPU order had a nice spine slash and copies are not plentiful around here. I ordered one online and hopefully it arrives mint or I will just end my MCU steelbook streak.

I'm surprised Best Buy gave this the overnight delivery treatment. Shipped Monday evening and got it about an hour ago.

My loose disc was the blu-ray (tucked behind the 4k), so it was still somewhat in place.

Mine had a super faint spine slash. Nothing to return over, overall really happy with this steelbook. Lovely colors

Probably couldn't when those orders were placed. They just became available again after midnight. Also, you don't know what country those people buying copies are from. People from around the world pay those prices from sellers in the U.S. because SteelBooks aren't released in their country.

My question though is what's with the fake art? LOL

If people ordered it thinking they were getting the double Scarlet art they're going to be dissapointed.

I would say that some buyers are probably assuming the artwork he is showing is what they will get. Lazy type of seller who goes based on what others think the artwork will be, he has racked up 11 negative and 5 neutral feedback over the past 12 months, I suspect when buyers receive their copies, thinking they are getting something rare, will be rather upset that the artwork is completely different than what was pictured. If you bookmark his page, I would say within a week you will see his neutral/negative rating go up because of this.

Wow resellers and scalpers like that are dirtbags.

Wasn't able to preorder it when it first was listed but got it when it came back in stock today. Just got notification that is has shipped as well.

That wouldn't be so bad, I wouldn't really care about the Blu-Ray disc. I am somewhat tempted to go back tomorrow and buy one, but on the condition it be opened and checked first.

Ordered last night with Shawshank 4k for ISPU, went around 6pm to pick up and the BB associate pulling orders grabbed a BW standard instead of the steelbook.

They were out of the BW steel at this location, the manager came out and apologized and refunded my PayPal for the Steelbook and gave me a gift card with the same amount so I could get the steel online or at another location on them for the mistake.

I was gracious and placed an order for the BW steel for pick up at a location 10 minutes away. The steel was mint and they had like 6 on the shelf all mint.

Retail, mistakes happen it is how you handle them that matters. Happy camper, they made it right!

Best Buy actually shipped mine in a box, and it came perfect.

Picked up my copy today! The only ones they had were the ones preordered! Mine had a spine slash, but she swapped it out for someone else's copy! (her idea, I didn't ask!) Hopefully they aren't as picky as I am!

the copy I picked up has a minor spine slash but its so barely noticeable, I don't really care, lol.

No loose discs inside it either.
