Hey everyone.


I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Blu-ray/Steelbooks (current have none).


Over the past couple of years I've been keeping a list of my all-time favorite films, and I'm wanting to purchase these in the best quality available (4K UHD Steelbook).


After reading various posts from the steelbook subreddit I found that a few movies on my list have upcoming 4K Steelbook releases. So I've signed up here so that when the time comes I'm in the best position to purchase them.


One thing I haven't entirely got my head around is the benefit of groupbuys over buying direct from a website. Lets use Zavvi (USA) for example, they offer shipping worldwide so a GB isn't necessary. In this case which do you recommend? (GB or direct).

if zavvi direct but if something like a premium like manta a gb.


gbs you are usually looked after better tbh and when it goes wrong its easier to sort out.


word of warning zavvi are a pain to deal with when it does go wrong they customer service is sh1t tbh.

but have a look around the boards and you will see.

@23647568 welcome to Media Psychos. Glad you found us. You have to see what works best for you. But I can say on Premium releases and rare foreign editions your best choice will be a GB. I hope you will get some nice items for your collection with our help. Enjoy your stay 😊
