I now have confirmation that I can announce ... for all those worried about future packaging from Zavvi. My Play contact has been working with zavvi as well on this mission for better packaging. Between the 3 of us and the future comments from this community after its in place I'm sure it will be go over well.

Customs have become surprisingly OK these days. I now order from amazon.com and they add in custom fees and I have been surprised how little they've been compared to the old days when customs UK threw every charge under the sun at you.

Brexit's never happening. They'll just keep replacing the Prime Minister until somebody finally finds a way to scrap the whole exit.

Ok, after losing 2 more steelbooks and just got the message I was 2 days to late to report it I now officially have put Zavvi on my blacklist as a retailer!
I already ordered less because of the import fees and DHL fees.
Just cancelled my remaining orders.

Anyone know anything about this version of Frozen? I found it by chance just now on the UK Zavvi site but clicking on it takes you back to the home page whereas the US site actually lets you view it. Either way it's showing as sold out on both sites but I dont remember ever seeing it before. Is it a fake listing or have I stumbled on a new one?

@paulboland?

@paulboland?
I don't know to be honest it's likely an error

Image used is the placeholder mockup image that was used for the steelbook that came out in 2014

@tommyh84
It's possible it's meant to be a listing for Frozen 2 listed by error early with wrong title used as that is been released in cinemas on November 22 and also using by error same placeholder mockup from 2014

Ah that explains it then, rather than pull the image/edit the page they created a new listing for what was the original WWA release. Thanks @paulboland :thumbs:
