I got Empire of Screams sent together with Waterworld. There was nothing but one large airbag thing in the bottom of the box. Yes, it was flat when it arrived.. It's in surprisingly well condition. But I will never order a box set in this size directly from Arrow again. How hard can it be to pack it in double layer bubble wrap and fill in the box.I ordered 2 full slip editions from them and they were shipped loose in a box. Both copies arrived dented.
Admittedly it's been a while since I ordered from them... sounds like they've downgraded their packaging for whatever reason (or maybe I just used to get lucky)I ordered 2 full slip editions from them and they were shipped loose in a box. Both copies arrived dented.
It's same as before THG purchased arrow films (It was not Zavvi it was THG who purchased Arrow Films )Admittedly it's been a while since I ordered from them... sounds like they've downgraded their packaging for whatever reason (or maybe I just used to get lucky)
EDIT - Wonder if it has anything to do with Zavvi buying them out?? Obviously they're known for the world's most useless packaging.
Then Technicolor should order themselves a package with a box set from Powerhouse Films and see how it's done. They wrap it in bubble wrap and then place it in the middle of a large cardboard box and fill ALL the empty space with air pillows. They also wrap standard cases in bubble wrap.In regards to arrow films shop I only ever had 1 item arrived damaged that was A Trip to the Moon Limited Edition Box Set that I ordered in 2020 and they sent a replacement that arrived in mint condition
I have used Arrow Films Website shop for years and ordered over 100 items all those apart from the above arrived in perfect condition
All my most recent orders since 2021 to date they used strong cardboard packaging similar to what HMV use
It's Technicolor who ship arrow store website orders direct from the arrow warehouse that's based at Technicolor Distribution Center
Parcel will list shipped by Technicolor on behalf of Hut Group
As this box set is bigger than your usual slipbox/slipcover limited editions it might vary the size of the packaging box used on some customers orders
My usual an post postman is careful with my parcels when doing deliveries
