Bought some steelbooks through Amazon knowing full well it was probably not going to go great. I had gift cards to use up but the idea they just send these in a plain bag with zero protection it arrived as expected. The Shutter Island being such a dark red & black color is going to show so many flaws and it's going to be rough to get this in good shape. It had a bunch of dings and dents around the edges on both sides.
BestBuy has decided to remove all copies of their Shutter Island 4k steel from the stores and it now shows as backordered there so Amazon will be my last hope on getting a nice new one. BB had it available just last week. The future of steelbook collecting is going to be incredibly bleak as BestBuy further continues to reduce their store inventory to the point where we won't even be able to walk in and grab a steelbook anymore, and Amazon is never going to improve at shipping products like this.

edit: I messed around with the Braveheart a bit and realized it was an extra piece of glue from the jcard that made it's way down to the front but that's all it was so I opened it and took it off. Looks great now. 2/3 Ain't Bad. Still expecting a struggle with Shutter Island though.



The Braveheart actually has a surprisingly nice semi metallic gloss to it, you can see it a little better in the bottom left corner. At first I thought it was just going to be a plain white color but it has some nice minor gold metallic undertones to it!

The gladiator on the other hand has nice silver metallic reflectivity in the armor and shield that stands out nicely under lighting.

Following up on my Shutter Island 4k steelbook, replacement copy arrived today. Came in the thinnest bubble mailer I've seen, no thicker than a paper envelope. Shockingly, it has no dings or dents! The back on the left seems to have a tiny little scratch but this looks like it was probably caused in the steelbook factory where they also have pretty poor QC so I'm not complaining, tough to get it this nice. Very pleased to have this one in the collection now.

[Show spoiler]
My SteelBook of My Bloody Valentine had a small scratch on the top-left corner of the back cover that's clearly do to QC issues.
There's also a few specks, for lack of a better word, that were most likely caused by some kind of printing error.

Thankfully, they're not too bad. Plus, my brother-in-law was kind enough to pick it up at Walmart for me, so I wasn't going to complain.

I should also mention that nearly all the damage, minor as it is, was hidden under the paper-sleeve that came glued to the back. (which itself was pristine)
It would've been impossible to know there was anything wrong with the SteelBook without opening it.

I have been waiting for The Croods 2 for a long while and it is finally mine!!! And Fifty Shades because... everyone has guilty pleasures, but I feel no guilt for enjoying these gorgeously goofy movies. Also, nice Steelbook design.

Finally picked this up on 4K (after missing out on BF deal). This looks/sound awesome. Easily in my top ten 4Ks.
