Only just noticed they changed the poster designs. From the original posters to the illustrated/ pop art images! Wonder why that was changed. Preferred the originals

Ohh yes. Those replacements are garbage though! Just a piece of tat as a filler. The ID card is tripe too. You wouldn’t have a captured still as your photo surely. Can anyone confirm if he shows his ID in the movie? And what is the image? Would be a face on mug shot on an ID.

That's why the Deluxe version was a waste of money imo. For collectors who want matching sets I can totally understand why they wanted to buy it.
Beyond the nice larger Case, it's just full of "under a dollar" filler tat (as is the Collectors one) but it's more palatable cost wise.
There's no value beyond the steelbook and slips.
It's my hope that EB ditch a lot of this fluff for their next release. It screams cheap. Maybe just those super quality slips, start with a couple of cool lentis as well, some high quality cards and a solid book or booklet. Offer different designs in the same price bracket.

Manta, WeET, Blufans and Nova Media have had the formula right for years. Copy that. Do we really need the extra crud for another £45/50.
 
Dammit! I just got an email from Zavvi saying that they are refunding my Leon CE. It says that they received my return shipment. What's weird is that my original tracking still shows it being on track for this Friday. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that today's email is wrong and I'll still get my shipment. :scat:
 
Zavvi will reimburse you in that case but since they have finally learned to register their parcels correctly with IOSS, there should be no customs charge at all.
Well, I just received the Collector's Edition and the Dekuxe Edition and had to pay 55€ in customs and handling fees.... let's see if I can find the one zavvi customer service person who knows about reimbursing :rofl:

55 euros on a £60 item? it should be 20% shouldnt it?
 
I got my DELUXE EDITION. Surprisingly there is no number on the number card, instead it is one flat card. WTF? Anyone gets the same problem?
 
No number on my card on the outer box, but there is a number on the card on the back of the collector's edition that is in the box and on the sticker on the bottom of the outer box.

My first deluxe box set arrived a few days ago and was loose in the box with that shredded type brown paper. It somehow made its way to California without damage. My second deluxe box set arrived today, but it was double boxed like The Fifth Element editions.

Mine came in, one corner slightly busted, but the entire bottom plastic is cracked. Zavvi said they'd send a replacement when back in stock (ya know, the limited edition item that is now sold out - ha), and to just send mine back in. Yeesh.
