Price is amazing... NOT!

59.99$ must be a mistake and will surely drop before release right?

Hope so.  If I didn't have the first and second movie in the steelbooks, I would be skipping this one at its current price.

Yeah that has to be a typo. $25 extra over the regular 4K version? For a cover that isn't even that amazing?

If that's going to be the new normal for steelbook pricing, I think I may have to switch to digital copies from here on out.

 

@BBYBilly -- please say that's not going to be the regular price and it's going to be something a little more realistic like $39.99?

Re: Upcoming SteelBook Discussion Thread

I agree this is outright aupoling!! US gets reg rls at $20 reg steelbook at $25.... and 4k steelbook at $30..... but somehow for the first time with a 4k steelbook we get gauged. I pre-ordered mine because I don't have a choice and don't want to fuss going to the US for this. But I'm praying for a price drop..... this just is not right.

I dunno.  Sounds right to me.

 

It has everything everybody has been asking for on all the other titles.

 

Will there be a steelbook for this?

Will it have artwork similar to the first two like the one in Europe?

Will it include 3D like all the steelbooks in Europe have now?

Will it have 4K?

Will it have the Theatrical and the Extended Cut?

Will it be debossed? embossed? matte? glossy?

 

I'm not trying to offend anyone but lately I find that the covers of the regular Blu-Rays look a lot better than the Steelbooks.  

Including the following:

 

Star Wars The Force Awakens

Deadpool

Batman v Superman

Captain America Civil War

X-Men: Apocalypse

Warcraft 

 

At one point steelbooks were interesting becasue there weren't a lot of them.  Now every country in the world seems to have their own "exclusive" steelbook for every title being released now, with lenticular, quarter slip, half slip, full slip, with a new title (or actually I should say an old title) being released everyday now.  Shouldn't we be getting another Terminator 2 soon?

 

And seeing as you can order direct from most of these places around the world now with some including free shipping and no import charges (or through the "group buys" where they "only" take $3.00 or $4.00 "for their time") which is basically like a certain online marketplace where people can resell these "exclusives" but without the marketplace fees and PayPal fees, just the profit, what's the point of "exclusives" or even steelbooks anymore?

 

My steelbook shelf is now full.  No more for me.

 

Bring back the VHS tape with the cardboard slip.  

Oh and can you make that a letterbox copy?  With a lenticular front?

 

Thanks.  Appreciate it.

Re: Upcoming SteelBook Discussion Thread

I hope that proce isn't true... I collect steelbooks for their artworks but I own neither of 4K nor 3D TV so it feels like it's such a waste for me to spend $67.
I guess I'll have to pass on this if the price stays the same...
