My copy of The Lost Weekend turned up today and ... it's a re-seal. All scratched and scuffed and everything. Basically a used copy. Oh, Amazon. :rolleyes: Hope everyone else had better luck. :)

*EDIT*

Just double-checked my order and it was only 'dispatched by Amazon' - the actual seller was some outfit called bestmediagroup. Reckon they must have just got a load of returns on the cheap hence the low prices. Getting really p:censored:ed off with this now, been getting a lot of scratched up or re-surfaced and re-sealed items being flogged as 'new' from Amazon lately. :mmph:

It's not Amazon selling them though, just fulfilled by them after it's been stored there.

I've had three come through. Two were new/sealed but Island Of Lost Souls was open and in a ripped polybag. Luckily it was mint. I was going off these bloody things too and wasn't going to bother with steelbooks but the fact these were cheaper than the standard meant it had to be done!

I received my Island Of Lost Souls steelbook on monday - also offered by bestmediagroup and shipped by amazon - and it's definetely a brand-new copy, the booklet and discs are in a perfect condition and there are no scratches etc on the steelbook itself at all.

My IOLS was definitely new but maybe a return or the seal was damaged. You could tell that the data card had never been taken off the front or back.

I believe the seller is actually Eureka. I've ordered a few things from them now (only 1 Steelbook though), and they've all turned up new. I doubt you'll have any problem getting a replacement if they're as efficient as their own store.

I had my suspicions that it might be them or maybe their distributor as it said direct from the source or something like that.

Oh sh**... I'm waiting for 3 steebooks from them (Island, Two-Lane & Silent Running), hope I don't have to return any...

Edgeworth 28th December 2012 08:29 PM

I've had 5 out of the 8 I ordered and they've all been new/mint.
