Wow, I guess it wasn't just me then.
I haven't opened mine, but they are definitely broken. I don't think there's much need to, from a safety standpoint. It sounds like a box of legos in there.
My pyrex box was in another cardboard box, with two deflated plastic baggies, which I hope were at least inflated at the time of shipment. Probably would have been much better off just slapping a label on the pyrex box than letting that float in a much larger box.
