Those are for Zavvi, they'll either place a dent right where they meet or bend the steelbook in the shape of a banana along one of those fold lines.
HMV are amateurs.

Don’t get me wrong. I like the design hence why I bought it and it looks so much nicer on people’s pictures. It just feels very flat and as though the print was set to draft quality. Here are some of my not so good pics in an attempt to put across what I see. It’s nice but basic. It looks nicer with a slipcover on imo to get the shine and it does look good on the shelf due to white spine.

Received Jaws and Duel today, I quite like them both to be honest.

I have The Thing, The Hard Way & Back to the Future on order but I might drop BTTF as I already have the old Zavvi steelbooks. I can see why people might be disapointed in these but I dont mind a flat matte finish on some steelbooks.

Yeah TBH I thought that too with one of the pictures from @jasong, but in hand I don't see it. Perhaps it the lens flare effect just coming across as streaky matte. If it is there it certainly isn't as bad as other steals...
Yep think your right, lens flare. I noticed that. The matt finish is not to bad.

I have to confess, since I poo poo'd this initially, that the pics of the in-hand steel are quite nice. Too bad HMV doesn't ship to the states. I'd have to snag it and a couple others. It's a good sale. Ninja's should check it out.
