    I want to buy the 1989-1997 Batman Blu-ray box set but Amazon don't seem to sell it anymore, so I was thinking about ordering from Zavvi.

    Can anyone tell me what Zavvi packaging is like for box sets? Or if anyone can recommend another place to buy the set from that provides good packaging it would be appreciated.

    Massive. I've had small things get posted in huge boxes. Like with amazon, I think they only have standard sized boxes, so when you order something that's just too big for one box it gets sent in the next size up.

    It seems to be pretty random for medium sized sets. They tend to put large sets into boxes these days and keep-case sized releases into cardboard mailers - but in between those sizes it could be either a jiffy bag or box/carton of some kind.

    What would you call the extended LOTR boxset, small or large? because I was sent that in a padded envelope. Fortunately it came through completely unscathed.

    Hmm, yeah, a little surprised they didn't use a box for that one.

    I've recently received the 'Allo 'Allo and Northern Exposure sets from them in boxes.

    It was Zavvi Outlet if that makes a difference. I'm assuming they and Zavvi are one and the same.

    I have just ordered this from The Hut (same company).
    I hope you didn't pay the current Zavvi price! (£21.85). If you did and it's not too late, cancel and head over to The Hut and re order for £13.95! If you have a 10% code as I did even better. Don't forget cashback too!
    Hope it's not too late.

    I ordered prison break box set from zavvi which came in a box but when I ordered the Lost box set from Zavvi outlet came in a large Jiffy bag find it weird that they used (for me at least) different packaging

    But that being said Prison Break was more bashed up than Lost

    It arrived it decent condition despite being packaged in a jiffy bag. The box set was smaller than I was expecting it was 2 Amrays rather than 4 so half as thin. It's better for my shelf space that way I am going to put it next to the Superman movies box set.:)
