Steelbook and premium steelbooks discussion thread......


Basil

Recommended Posts

Right its occured to me there is not a thread to discuss steelbooks and premium releases here in the english room from finishes to bossing/embossing to world wide exclusive art (WEA) to world wide art (WWA).

from premium releases to exclusives releases to multi retailer retailer releases.

 

this is the place to discuss the lot here from single releases to one clicks.

 

discuss anything related in the world of steels in here, it really stood out when a new members post said as the title anyone collect steelbooks?

and i thought we need to improve this especially as i am a steelbook collector.

 

so share your thoughts, ideas and questions and pictures here, lets get talking steels. its such a great hobby.

new members show us you collections as well. it all needs to be seen.

 

if you need anyone to get attention put the @ symbol in front of there name and it will turn like 

@Basil and then we will get notification for it. :D

I'd suggest pre-ordering it from Zavvi.

 

I've dealt with Zavvi for I guess, 10 years as they were my initial access to the then Fledgling Arrow Video label that was just starting up and gave us those beautiful Window-Box edition releases of obscure and unreleased horror vids that the other labels were ignoring.

Since that time, Zavvi has had some ups and downs, usually around the times "new management" was giving clean-sweeps.

They were spotty on delivery protection, rude or difficult Customer Service and rarely in a dispute would concede any fault.

 

I think it's safe to say that over the past two years, their business model has significantly gotten better and though sometimes they can still aggravate customers with less than optimal packaging, for the most part I'd say they've become a reliable player in the game.

We sometimes forget, that Zavvi's more akin to Amazon, than say FAC or Kimchi etc... as they are extremely diverse with their products and so the guy who packed your Blu-ray deluxe edition  could have just finished packing a book, a sweater, or earrings so has no real guide provided on the fragility of items I'm thinking.

"It looks and feels like a book? I'm gonna pack it like a book..."

 

They do offer some very unique and distinct Blus, that we otherwise could not obtain.

I personally would have no qualms of making this order, I might even do so today. 🙂

The Man with the X-ray Eyes - Limited Edition

 

yep, that's Ray Milland as the anti-hero folk!

Yeah I noticed that. It's says 10.00am. I'm assuming that's there time. Anyone know what time it is here ? I've never seen anything go live on Zeta for a pre order. Be interested to see how long it's up and prices.

Yeah I wish I had more insight on why Manta Can’t do it? I hate incomplete sets, but looking forward to this also, and am hoping HDzeta continues with the DC Lineup.

basically they tried for approval 4 times and studios would not sign any of it off, so if that did not change soon when i spoke with him he said they have no option but to cancel.

but i am with you i thought they gave up too easily, so that made my decision not to collect ranges like dc from them but i will still carry on with single films, when is something i want.
