How do you package items for delivery?
Everything sold by Metal Movies is sent protected by bubble wrap and in a shipping box to ensure it reaches you in the same condition it leaves us. This includes both steelbook releases and standard blu-ray or 4K items.
We do not use bubble mailers or cardboard mailers as in our opinion these do not offer sufficient protection while items are in transit. This is part of our commitment to quality service.
How long will it take for my order to be delivered?
Please see our shipping policy for more details of expected delivery timescales
Will I be charged customs or import charges?
If your delivery address is outside Australia then yes, customs and import charges may be charged. The recipient of any parcel will be required to pay these costs.
We do not have any control over these charges and are not able to advise on expected costs.

Steelbooks are easily damaged - how do I know I will receive something in good condition?
We inspect all steelbooks before detailing them on our site. We have confidence that all items we sell are free from scratches, dents or spine slashes, except where specifically noted on a product information page.
Please note we do not remove shrinkwrap in order to inspect steelbooks, so we are only reasonably able to inspect those parts of the steelbook that are not covered or obscured by a slip cover or J-card. We do sell all items in good faith
All our steelbooks are sent well protected by bubble wrap and in a shipping box to ensure they reach you in a great condition.
Are your items new?
Yes, all items on our site are brand new and in the original packaging including shrinkwrap.
The only exceptions to this are clearly marked as part of the description, and all sit in the second hand or reduced/damaged categories on our site.
I see on the photo that an item includes a digital download/digital version/ultraviolet code, etc - will I be able to use this?
The short answer is maybe however we do not warrant that any digital codes will be usable for several reasons :
- Codes are often time limited, and the activation time for the code may have passed before your purchase.
- Codes are often region restricted and you may not be able to use it where you live when purchasing something that was sourced from another region
- Some services have been deprecated (eg - Ultraviolet) and you are no longer able to use them.
I can see a scratch or other blemish in the photos for an item I'd like to buy.
Metal Movies do not use stock images for steelbook releases, we use images of the actual stock we hold. Some common things to note are :
- Shrinkwrap can often be scratched, crinkled or creased which can make it look like the steelbook itself is. This isn't the case - our product pages will always detail where we have noted damage to the steelbook itself.
- The slip cover/J-Card/information sheet with the steelbook looks to be blemished or has small circular stains on it. This is caused by the glue used to attach it to the steelbook bleeding into the cardboard. Unfortunately it happens often and can't be removed, however the same will not happen to the cover of the steelbook itself.
