I've just received Hellboy2 on blu ray and instead of the usual wrapping with the security seal it is only packaged in shrink wrap. It was purchased new through amazon, not a third party but now I'm suspicious that it is second hand or a returned item as I'm pretty sure every other blu ray I've purchased has been in the packaging with the security seal. I haven't opened it to check the disc as I bought it for a present and I'm thinking of returning it as I don't want something that's already been used. Has anyone else bought this or any other blu ray or dvd that's been packaged in shrink wrap?

"yes" dont accept it ! all dvd's or blu's that come in shrinkwrap are second hand or have been returned for whatever reason ! "stay clear of these discs,, HMV & ASDA even try to palm them off !

I wrote a post about this a few weeks ago after receiving a load of shrink wrapped older releases. They were wrapped so tightly that they ruined the box art. I complained to Amazon and they offered a partial refund or return or exchange. Its not good, by all accounts all retailers are doing this and you feel you are getting a second hand product which is advertised as new. Amazon customer service / returns are brilliant but it is time comsuming and a pain in the arse sorting out returns.

I'm going to ask for a refund as I'm just not happy with it. I'm really disappointed with amazon as this week I also received a dvd without the original wrapping and a book costing over £50 which has black finger marks smeared across the edges of the pages on one side, probably caused by the person packing it. I've never had a problem with them before.

I just got from amazon (not a 3rd party) a completely tampered-with and re-wrapped Spider-man... and only 2 out of he 3 discs were present. The actual blu ray of the film was not.
