F-ing spine slash, this happening too often. I thought that they were long past this crap.
They'll never be done with it because for some reason nobody involved with shipping SteelBooks has the brains to figure out that a simple piece of cardboard over the top of the steelbooks under the flaps of the sealed box will keep the knife from making contact with the steelbooks.

You'll never stop warehouse workers from slicing deep into a box with their knives.

I know it’s not exactly rocket science but I hadn’t had one for years and two is a few weeks and sod all chance of getting a replacement, glad I ordered two and the second one wasn’t from the top.

Also if they were using the standard box opener is has two options, the one that they are using that causes this issue (though I bet that they are just using a knife) and the other cuts through it kind of like scissors which wouldn’t cause any damage.

So they are just as useless as the muppets shipping them.

Something as simple as this should be mandatory. Just a sheet of cardboard the length of the box under the flaps.

So if the box shipped from whatever company has 50 or 100 steelbooks in it then place a sheet of cardboard over top of the steelbooks from Scanavo's warehouse to Disney's warehouse to Zavvi's warehouse.

If I knew who to contact and I thought they would listen to me then I would tell them.
But seriously, how they haven't figured this out on their own after 15 years or whatever it's been...

How about you @Wreck? Any contacts? lol.

I got worried for a moment, saw what i thought was a diagonal scratch to the right of luke and han, turns out it was part of the original mock up artwork, bloody zavvi, getting everyone on edge...... turns out this is flaw free, very nice steelbook, and that's all i can say...

Ordered 2 on the off chance one turned up with some damage but both have noticeable dents & spine slashes. This really is unacceptable Zavvi & the shrink wrapped steelbook with the big dent on the top really should have been spotted before it went out the door.
These SW threads are a horror story I can’t take my eyes off of.
