Against my better judgement I gave into the temptation and ordered the last drop, and I seem to have lucked out. The package arrived in kind of rough shape (very scuffed up, battered corners), and inside was absolutely zero packaging besides the shrink-wrapped collector's box. The first thing I noticed is that the DM screen is about 1/8th of an inch shorter than the books and sits at one end of the box, which meant the corners of the box on that end got pretty beat up due to the extra space. The books themselves, however, are in almost perfect condition, which is really all I cared about. A couple of the corners are ever so slightly bent if you look closely, but it's not like I was intending to keep these pristine forever. I gave them all a flip-through and there don't seem to be any binding or printing issues. I guess the dice rolls extend to the merchandise itself, too.
