I got my treehouse today. Probably the same box size, but they used the Hot Rod as one of the "Air pillows" on the side. Treehouse box is alright, im building it anyways, but the Hot Rod is destroyed.

I had one of those as well - same outcome - Hot Rod box was crushed but Treehouse was fine.  At least it was to the side of the Treehouse and not on top of it like it was with the diner.

Target shipped mine diagonally in a big ole box (I had selected it was a gift), box had a few air pillows, but probably half as many as would make a difference. Shipping Box didn't fare well, but the Upside Down is in good shape apart from the fact that EVERY seal sticker has popped, probably due to stress on them and the hot trucks. 

I received a 20th Anniv. Slave-1 from Target that way as well.  I was thankful only one seal popped.  Made me glad I drove to the store to pick up another one.

I wonder how much money the Companies spent on Returns and if it weighs out the lack of packaging material and working time. 

Didnt Amazon throw everything returned in the trash(at least in europe?)

What do you do when Lego.com jams the free gift in the same box as your main item, and as a result, the main item gets squished. It's a lego expert creator, so I am concerned with box condition.

Call LEGO customer service and they will ship you another.  They are easy to work with.  You will receive a return label to ship bad one back but don’t send until you receive the other.

I'm not sure what you should do, but I know what you shouldn't do, and that's post this question in the daily deals thread.

I took pictures today :(  A total of 8 diners came this way over a couple of days.  On the same day, Amazon also delivered two fresh in a box.  Grrr...

I might try to break even with these on ebay versus adding to my return tally.  It'll be a good experiment to see if box condition really doesn't matter :)

you are a skilled trader with experience. you know damned well that 12 months after EOL you can sell these at the RRP ät least.. so its just a matter of your current cash-flow.

That is why occasionally I order the large sets when they are back-ordered with a small item guaranteeing shipment now and the primary, larger item is shipped separately later. Sometimes LEGO does ship them separately to begin with as I saw with the Sian, but that is not the norm.

I got a bunch of stuff ordered from amazon.es but shipped from germany as well. The weird thing was it takes a long time to ship and that shipping is not free despite being free if ordered amazon.de and above 45eur. I had some stuff pancaked from amazon.de recently though, I don't like the perforated boxes that can be cut down it gets crushed easily.

Glad I was going to part out anyways, I guess.

Mine started arriving this morning... All in boxes. All still damaged... all with multiple stickers. They were damaged before being packed/shipped. At 73% off I'm not going to complain... much.

The shipping notifications keep rolling in. They are being sent 1 or 2 at a time. I'm at about 50% damaged, but not complaining here either.

Another excellent packing job from Zavvi. 42098 Technic Car Transporter ($130 + free shipping). It arrived in the original Lego shipping case with two taken out.

All of my Justice Frozen sets are in bags and crushed. I wouldn't complain at that price point if they were damaged, but these are completely flattened/crushed. I'll be figuring out their return policy...
