I was able to order one for delivery so hopefully they don't just take one from my local store and send it to me lol.

I noticed the same thing in DurantCinema's video @ 1:35

Now I have to go there tomorrow and ask them wtf happened. Who could pick my order without an ID, and walk away with an item I paid for, on top of that the website indicates they are sold out at that store!!!!
My best guess is they donít care and grab off whatever they have on the shelf. I ordered a bunch of things once and turned out they gave me someoneís game instead of mine. And last year I ordered a doom collectors edition and I get an email that it was picked up I was like wtf thatís a $200 thing. I was pissed luckily they had most likely the other persons order and gave me that when I went after dealing with everything on the phone prior. On top of that they gave me the thing for free so I let bygones be bygones until recently where they did it again with a steelbook I ordered recently

They gave me a gift card for mine, i had to go to another store that had like 10 copies on hand. I have a feeling my closest store is going to be shut down soon.

Just received it. Will watch tonight for Saturday movie night. Looks nice! The discs have a nice texture. They give you a little finger massage while you are putting it in the tray. Fortunately, arrived seemingly in good shape and undented.

Wow! The 4K PQ of this disc is amazing I actually think the film is kinda fun despite all of the shrugs it gets.

I picked up mine at my local BB (Boston) and my J-Card was also messed up like that. Did not go to the movie section to check the others though.

Same deal was at the Manchester NH and Danvers, MA BestBuy so maybe that tear is localized to New England

Durant I think is in Abington, MA

I can't tell too well from the picture, but is the tear you are describing just a tear in the J-card on the front or is it also accompanied by a dent underneath?

If there is no damage underneath, it doesn't sound too bad, assuming you plan to open the steel and don't care about the J-card of course.

No dents surprisingly, so Iím guessing something happened during manufacturing which caused all the tears.

I'm going to hold off on this one hoping for a price drop. While out doing a Disc Reply run through northern IL yesterday, I stopped by 3 different Best Buy stores and they all had serious quantity of this steelbook... like 25+ at each store.

Interestingly, none had the flaws/damage depicted above.

Interesting.

I was just at Best Buy yesterday and saw the same thing had happened with the Friday 13th Part 2 steelbook. The J-card was torn in the same way and was somehow overlapping over the shrinkwrap.

It does seem like a factory/packaging issue only - no visible damage to the actual steelbooks.

Most SteelBooks being released lately in the US have been having some sor of quality control issue, I have seen many Dredd and Godzilla cases with the corners dented, Wonder Woman and Lovecraft County had j-cards mangled, Lovecraft Country had a line pressed on the cases.

Whatís best is they keep asking top dollar for these releases but they donít care what shape they sell them.

Finally got my 2 steelbooks in on the 12th after waiting almost 2 weeks for them to be shipped. Best Buy shipped them in a silver/gray bubble mailer but thankfully there wasn't any visible damage but haven't really opened them to examine them closer. Best Buy gave me a $15.00 E-Gift Card for my troubles, hopefully it doesn't expire before I am ready to use it.

I was at my local Best Buy last night, and they had several copies of the steelbook in the new releases shelf. I was rather surprised because they usually fly on release day.
