OK. I have never been a massive box set/super deluxe collector, but I have bought 4 recently. Now maybe its bad luck or maybe its more common than I think, however I have bought the following 4 titles and not one of them has come without issue. Fish - Weltschmerz - The box came with a very small dint on the side. Its a bit frustrating to spend £55 on a set (1CD & Blu Ray) and have any damage; however Fish runs his own "cottage industry" to release his albums and it seemed a tad petty to send it back so I let it slide. Richard & Linda Thompson Hard Luck Stories- This is a stunning set, and any issues are being resolved very professionally, but the disc issue is well recorded in this forum. Tom Petty - Wildflowers - I reluctantly bought this set even though there were many aspects of it release I was unhappy about. Finally arrived today. Outer box perfect (phew). Wrapped in bubble wrap - and then the box has a small dint at the front bottom edge. This means it was damaged before it was even sent out - which is super frustrating. Now again it seems very petty (no pun intended) given what's going on in the world, but given its sold out now the chances of any replacement is probably zero (yes I contacted Warner's). Even a replacement box would do. However the icing on the cake also arrived today. I bought the Prince Sign Of The Times Deluxe CD set for a present for someone from Amazon. I opened the outer box, and was first met by the shrink wrap for the set thrown on the top, with the hype stickers crushed; however not only that, the book and discs were not even in the sets box. They were also sitting on top. Now clearly someone had bought this set and sent it back to Amazon (it had sticky finger prints on it and unsurprisingly the book has dented corners, and the box is scratched (probably from the other item I purchased that was smaller and rolling about over the top). So someone in Amazon though "**** it, this will do", packed it and sent it out. Of course its going back. This unfortunately seems to be the level of quality control in the industry at the moment, and increasingly this is not a new subject for any of us but it seems each purchase now is a review of the level of damage (as 90% of the time there is some damage) and then deciding if its worth sending back or not. For me. I'm done. Had enough. My purchasing will be dramatically reduced going forth, and there will need to be a VERY good reason for me to buy something (I don't stream either before you ask) Good to get that off my chest......am I the only one with this constant issue? Are expensive box sets frequently arriving damaged?
