Can’t believe they used heated glue on the box. That’s so amateurish. Squirting 90+ degree molten glue on laminated paper is bound to separate the layers.
Honestly it’s so ridiculous. And I peeled it off carefully but still got massive marks. I think everyone will be in the same boat with that.

So does the light just shine through the paper itself? I'd rather they do away with that feature if it meant they could improve the paper/box quality.

Yeah. The front part seems like different material but I don’t know. The light function is actually better than I assumed. And the battery pack is at the bottom. I thought the light up function was going to be so cheesy

I’ve text you a video of it

Wow, my mate just told me and sent a pic of his collectors box, and it's f'ing SPINE SLASHED :mad: , it was in a box though.... theres some denting on the edge where the knife pressed into it by the looks of it, I've attached the image....

Also, my standard steelbook didn't arrive, so will be Monday I guess.

I feel really sorry for everyone who has received theres, it looks like a poor quality cash grab, the only redeeming feature appears to be the light up feature which seems to have impressed, and of course the steelbook within but the rest appears to be a bit rubbish. Hes sending it back.

….and i'm cancelleing my order for the Endgame and Spidey 3d boxsets i pre-ordered. No way am I forking out for garbage like this....:stop:

Wish I could see the looks of zavvi employees when they see the flood of complaints and returns, and the Endgame cancellations. They deserve it (though technically NOT there fault, but Disneys) Maybe lessons can be learned from this fiasco. In time for Endgame, but I wouldn't count on it....:dunno:

Returning mine, although it did come in a proper box with loads of wrap inside. Very cheap looking. Cancelled Avengers and Spiderman now... not forking out this sort of cash for something so poorly made.

Not my kind of thing but can certainly see the attraction for a collector - doesn't look at all bad in these pics courtesy the other site and that gimmicky light-up feature looks cool . . . the box also looks pretty substantial with the smaller box inside containing the goodies:-

Can someone upload pics of the steelbook or at least let those of us who haven’t received ours yet what the finish is?

Cheers!

Same as the US. Exactly the same. This might be slightly muted compared to the US one though from what I can see (us is a bit brighter)
