Many French buyers also got this message. It's more and more common with Amazon.

Looks like Fnac still has it available, so at least you're not totally out of luck.

Can't tell you how many of these TOC releases I have received that have had scratched up steelbooks and dented steelbooks due to the plastic holder and the pin. Also amazing to see the resell value for some of these TOC releases. Not sure why so many purchasers have accepted this poor quality control, but it doesn't seem to be hurting TOC sales.

There´s only 1 copy left there - and the reseller takes €143,90, Italy-one and Zavvi are sold out. A luck I still could order one - watched this video from Youtube, where you see how nice that edition looks:thumbs:

Sorry to read that. When I posted earlier yesterday Fnac still had it for 39.99.l, but must have sold out before you were able to check.

It´s fine - I got one, I just wanted to tell before it´s completely sold out. Was €34.99. Now it´s gone and the price is 5x, but could be there´s backstock on Amazon soon.

Got my edition today, haha - the UK-version has repack-discs for the Blu-Ray, while the french one has new discs (also with the UK-rating logo) - what a crap, but looks good and the steelbook is in good condition.

The Blood-Effect isn´t visible in the French edition when sealed like it is in the UK-one (video above). The patch causes the effect (not the steelbook), but it is positioned differently in the French one and you can see the effect only when you center the plastic holder on top of the steelbook. It´s the reason why I bought it and looks awesome, but you have to open it first. Sealed it looks boring, but now we know where these discussed marks/scuffs on the steelbook come from and why the Uk-one has them and the French-one not. This is an award winner for the cheapest made good looking edition.
