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. 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 ped 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.

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.
