Got mine. About 7 or 8 left. All had prominent small bulges on the back of the case. Haven't opened mine yet to see what is causing it.

My store said they received 10. I placed an in-store pickup order at 10:18. I supposedly got the last one, according to the clerk when I picked it up at 1:45. He said they didn't think they were going to be able to fulfill my order at first, since the shelf was empty, but someone moved one and they spotted it.

Mine are still waiting for me to get them. I ordered over the weekend. Will be heading before I go to work. Hopefully they pulled good condition ones, because if they didn't i'm sure I will be SOL on getting a different one.

Thanks for the heads-up. I ordered a copy at lunch for in-store pick-up, which proved to be smart since they were all gone when I swung by after work. Got a nice, undamaged copy. I had expected the case to be embossed, but it's still nice.
I had to laugh at the recept which listed the item as "Snow White & (my name)". Didn't even know we were dating. That might make for a difficult price match later.

Grabbed the very last copy at the store I was at last night. Though the Steelbook itself is kind of disappointing since it isn't even embossed.

I ordered 2 from best buy. I went to pick it up before work last night and went to the shelf and they still had one out there, so I grabbed that then went to the counter to pick up my order. Copy one had a big time scratch on the bottom that was plain as day, and copy 2 had a good ding in the front too. So I left with only 1. Kinda sad, but it's ok. At least I didn't have to settle for a damaged one.

$24.99 isn't even a good deal for a Criterion.

it's the sticky glue (i don't know if it's got a proper name?) that adheres the paper to the steelbook. for some reason, they used a big amount of it on this particular release. at least that's the case with mine.

luckily there were no issues with the one i grabbed when i got it on tuesday. steelbook was in perfect condition and there was only three left (arrived at the store around 3:00PM). i probably could've ordered it online to ensure i would get one, but i can't trust an associate to pick out a good, issue-free steelbook, so i had to make sure to get it in person.

as others have said, steelbook artwork is great, but i do wish the tree and logo on the front had been embossed. that would've elevated the design so much more. i know the metalpacks usually have embossing, but i never noticed if steelbooks do... do they not?

When it comes to blind buys, you win some and you lose some. Well I definitely lost on this one because I watched it tonight and the movie sucked balls.

I've been on the fence about this one. Based on reviews, I don't expect a great movie but visual and with a great soundtrack. Did a blind buy of the steelbook, I am a sucker for these. At $19.99 if I don't like it, the steelbook may have enough resale value to recoup or come close. In the end, it may end up as fodder for my "don't blind buy" general rule.

I think I'm passing on the Steelbook. Almost got it but since it isn't embossed, I'm not gonna pay $20 for it. Gonna wait until the single Blu-ray disc comes out...maybe just get it on GoHastings when it becomes used.
