Is it easier to import to the UK with Amazon or direct from Arrow. Just wonder if the packaging might be better with Arrow. Does anybody know ?

Has anyone tried to fit a steelbook in the single release of conan the barbarian ?
thanks
A SteelBook would fit as it’s a Slipbox that has space for separate amaray case + booklet + poster

You might need to remove the amaray case and poster if it’s a tight fit
