You still end up paying less. I myself got the Double Lebti through Kevin's GB and managed to get the rest for less than what I would have paid to him.
But without the security. I'm not going to moan over a few pounds like @Jhadur says, anyone that does is pathetic. GB = security and if there are any problems ways to sort them through the GB host. EBay means no comeback, yes you can get your money back but that means no steelbook. I'd rather spend the extra few pounds knowing someone is closely checking what is being sent to me than an eBay seller that even if you know them can't sort things easily like a damaged steel. 3 or 4 quid difference isn't a bargain except to those eBay shoppers who will even fight over a pound.

I'd buy that for a dollar...

Not landing either side of the 'GB or not to GB' debate (they *are* invaluable to a lot of members and guarantee some titles which you wouldn't be able to get otherwise without significant price increases - and all my experiences of them have been great), but it was still good/suprising to be able to pick this up when I was able to afford it for cost on a certain auction site...

after the mauling my last copy received by the Mailmen of Doom, i was pretty nervous about the replacement steel and double lenti slip.
so, how did i do?

happy days. :happy: two massive shout outs are in order, the main reason for this post. first, @cooey huge thanks :notworthy: :notworthy: :thumbs: for sorting everything out behind the scenes and enabling this to arrive, this time in completely flawless versions. :oohyeah: :Snap: and thanks should go to blufans. :thumbs: yes, there was definitely something up with that first shipment to Europe, but credit to them for having some put aside and for responding to requests.

beautiful editions of my favourite films + superb ninja help = why this site is the best.

A reminder to those who don't open their steels as to what could be lurking underneath...

Steelbook was mint but this rear lenti is a disgrace.

Not sure if I'll be able to get a replacement for this as this was from Kevin's very last mini-GB. He has said he'll look into it for me, but could take 4-8 weeks, and that's only if they still have replacement slips... gutted :(

That's very disappointing. I feel sorry for you. Hopefully you get it sorted even if chances are not the best. @davhyl
I bought this edition from the very same mini-GB. When I get home tonight, I will check the lenti for scratches. Even if there're none, my copy has a defect, too. The lenti's placement on the slip box is skewed (again).

I bought mine from ebay as I was too late to decide on picking this up when the Gb was up, and my Lenti with all the 4 Characters on it(double lenti) has a Huge Bent on the lenti right in the middle, 3/4 of the lenti up. I'm happy that the steels are Mint so trying to let this one pass, but it still bugs the heck outta me... I looked to but another from ebay and too expensive :blackeye:

oh, that's bad. :pain: this bad:


absolutely gutted for you. i've had my own issues with this release, so i know how you feel. this scratches issue happens more and more these days. premium companies, it's a lenti - you could at least make sure it's not scratched to **** before mailing?

hope you are able to sort something out so that you can have a better quality edition in the end. :thumbs:

@davhyl same boat as you buddy. Got mine before Xmas, the kylo lenti has a big indentation in it, looks abit like it's been burned in to be honest. Hopefully we get replacement slips.

Tbf, I got a torn photo book with my ant man lenti, they said they'd try and source a replacement even though there wasn't any left . Two months later a box drops through the door with one in so I'm sure they'll come through

Yeah, really hoping for a replacement. Main thing is the steel is mint, but can't believe this got passed any QC

My parcel for the Spiderman Homecoming OAB came through Saturday, to say the parcel was mashed would be an understatement... Fortunately the steelbook and slip were fine but the little box with the magnet in was all crumpled. I've messaged about a replacement box for it,yet to hear back as of yet. I know it's only a small thigh but you're paying for the whole thing so I think the whole thing should be mint if you know what I mean
