Never had to exchange twice, but my exchange was smooth, and my current copy is perfect. Both discs played.

The plastic slipcover is sort of cool, but I got rid of it, since I wanted the steelbook to nsit next to the first Deadpool steelbook, which I think is a great design.

Mine still hasn't arrived. I think I'm going to call Best Buy and ask what's up. Post Office hasn't given an update in days and this was a pre-order not a monday order.

Mine do!
So my two UHD copies arrived with no problems, the BD version had a spine slash so hard it cut thru the plastic slip and sliced the steel spine.
WTH are these people doing?? How have the parties that be not fixed this problem yet? Just use boxes with longer flaps or insert a piece of cardboard on top. I’m guessing that returned slashed copies are more often getting resold as opposed to being returned. Which doesn’t help fix the problem.

Btw, I thought everyone hated this artwork?

Hating is part of the collector’s process here which means they will buy it regardless.

I know what you're thinking, "Stop putting on pen on it" but I was hoping third time was a charm, or wasn't a charm, whatever...

Yes, I'm one of those people, and I didn't buy this steelbook. I went for the Target's version instead, and will wait for the 2yr anniversary version if they decide to re-release it again (with better artwork).

Artwork goes up: "Ugh another hand-drawn lazy design, they don't put any effort into these anymore, and the prices are so high, easy pass."

Release date: "Was at Best Buy right when they opened, 10 copies in the front dispay, another 10 in the media section, bought a copy but it has a spine slash, gonna go back to the store and exchange it for a mint copy. It actually looks great in person."

My store has about that many too, but it was only the UHD copies and none of the blu ray version.

Also shows how many people haven't seen the film yet before they're buying. I doubt as many would have had a knee-jerk reaction if they'd watched it in theaters already.

I watched it in the theater and still wish they didnít go with this art style. I get where it comes from but still not a fan.

Big fan of the clear o-sleeve over the steelbook though. I wish every steelbook came with those.

So I picked up the regular UHD for $27.99.

Lots of Steelbooks sitting around for $34.99

That is a $7 difference just for the exclusive packaging. Ridiculous!

Good thing the Steelbook looks god awful - so glad I wasn't suckered into buying it

I try to prevent that from happening, by smashing it up real good before I send it back.

A sale for this is inevitable. Thisíll be $20-$25 in no time. Itís just not selling. The art has to be the only reason, well that and the price. I admit I couldnít wait so snagged one off the bay for $25 without Code 4K of course
