How do you know you will get it by 10am? Is that your normal Royal Mail delivery time? For me, it's anytime from about to 10:30am to 6:30pm (and, no I am not joking!). Mine is coming via Amazon Shipping, although whenever they quote a date 2-3 days in the future, it always seems to end up coming a day early! So, although mine is scheduled to come on Tuesday as well, I wouldn't be surprised if it actually came tomorrow. I received an item today that they said would be delivered tomorrow! Seems strange to complain about stuff coming earlier than expected, but sometimes for larger items it has been an issue for me - especially if I have been arranging for someone to be at home to receive it!!
The postie always arrives at 10am time. My building is probably the first drop of, of his run. Mine arrived in my city sunday lunch time, here is hoping I get it monday. I did try and get a amazon locker delivery but got told it was full, when I put in a pre order.

If I had the option of amazon prime delivery, sunday 1pm - 9pm or royal mail Monday 10am ish time, I would take royal mail.

...and yet none of you can share pics :whistle: :Snap:
Haha, I literally opened some parcels then went to work, haven't opened the actual steel yet, put one pic in the 'pic of your last steelbook' thread. It is nice, although its a bit darker than I expected it to be tbh.

Got my copy today, just after 10am. Had issues uploading pics from my phone to pc via usb cable, had to use one drive. Thought I had chipped paint under the females head, on the orange art but looking at the op's pick it should be like that. Set my mobile camera to 5mp, site said it was to large a file, so tried again at 3mp, plus exposure is at -3. Only way to see the writing from my picks.

You're lucky you can be pretty guaranteed of a time, then! Mine's just been for today - 4:15pm, which is fairly typical, but can be much earlier or even later.

Sure enough, it turned up today, a day earlier than advised! Very nice, though...

My copy arrived a few hours ago, in perfect condition. It probably helped that it was packed with a number of other items and so was sent in a well packed box.

Happy with the steel itself. Much nicer than I expected. :happy:

Got my damaged steelbook this afternoon from the postie, for whatever reason Amazon packaged it with a far heavier item in a large box with no packaging, end result, the front is dented and has a heavy crease down one side. Now got to send it back for a refund as it's sold out.

Hopefully FAC or another company will produce a 4k edition. Really not impressed with Amazon, seems like they have stopped putting steelbooks into good well designed protectors and are happy to offset the profit of shoddy packaging against more returns... luckily they only have one or two steelbook each year that catch my eye.

It looks like the Blu-Ray and 3D discs are Region B. How come Amazon UK has Region B whereas Zavvi has it as Region Free? They are both from UK. Now, I am concerned my Zavvi order turns up Region B :(

Someone on the BR forum email Zavvi asking if it was Region B and they reply that it was Region B and to return it.
