Re: Upcoming SteelBooks Discussion Thread

It does beg the question: Is Best Buy Canada getting any more Steelbook releases?

We already confirmed in this thread that Dark Tower & Baby Driver are are with competitors, no use bringing those up.

That's been in the works since end of 2015, it seems that BB gets a small burst in the Summer (Summer Blockbusters), but as the holidays get closer, the well dries up pretty quickly.

Very sad indeed Power Rangers (2017) got a SteelBook in Canada and not Dundirk does not make sense and @Jacques1400 brought up a good point of "it seems that Best Buy Canada gets a small burst in the Summer (Summer Blockbusters), but as the holidays get closer, the well dries up pretty quickly."  Which in that case we end up missing many good titles who end up going with competitors or we end up missing all together. Unfortunately we are not going to get these answers from a peer-to-peer forum only more unanswered questions and speculation. Smiley Indifferent

@BBYTerence,

 

Though I do not care for the pop art I was wondering will Best Buy Canada be recieving Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets SteelBook Blu-ray/DVD  2017. BestBuy USA has announced a release date of 11/21/2017 I am hoping that we will get this also. Smiley Happy

Hello!

 

I have inquired about these 2 titles, but I have yet to receive any answers. So for now, it is unknown.

Re: Upcoming SteelBooks Discussion Thread

At this point I think we even have to ask will Best Buy be getting a Thor Ragnorak or Justice League steelbook because I'm not confident we will even get those!

 @Nadalfan I think Best Buy Canada will be getting both a Thor Ragnorak or Justice League steelbook; I think that is Best Buy's only reason why they bother with any physical copies of film anymore is to move major Disney/Star Wars/ DC & Marvel Superhero discs upon release. Smiley Wink

Re: Upcoming SteelBooks Discussion Thread

They are the only steelbooks I can rely on to pick up at Best Buy Canada, unfortunately I got into the Steelbook game late so trying to pick up the early Marvel releases really hurts the wallet.
