hi everyone, just a quick update - a lot of damages to this edition - some came in from obvious shipping damage where others appear to have a similar defect on the bottom left of the case.

it's almost like it was crimped in the wrong place or something was done to it that it created a compression at the very bottom corner.

it seems plausible that a batch of these were damaged during either the manufacturing or disc process...

I'm looking into if other people are reporting this problem or not, and then determining if I can get replacements for these.

I only have a couple of good ones in hand so it's definitely a problem.

@dfoles have you seen anything on /r about this?

For once I have to say I haven't seen anyone comment about damage on this release. Yet...

But I'll keep an eye out, might make a post to see if anyone else has it. Can you snap a pic of the defect?

It's not a complete indentation but a slight indent on the left bottom (front) corner - in a couple of examples I have missing paint (under the shrink and the shrink is fine). hard to capture on this white steelbook but hopefully something comes through.
