Hello all. I’m new to this fine community. I come in search of many premium products, steelbooks and the like, and figured why not combine my monetary power with other likeminded folks? Enter the group buy, which is just the best thing ever. Who came up with this most excellent idea because I’d like to give them a slew of mental high fives. I haven’t done a group buy yet and am so keen to do so.

I’ve been collecting for quite some time, throwing my extra funds into it kind of “seriously” for a few years now and look forward to getting some sweet new Manta Lab, Filmarena and the like type products through the application of glorious teamwork. I’m trying to determine what I like more right now, Manta or Filmarena, but that’s a difficult decision. Anyone have opinions? I think it relies on the release and the designs for it to a certain degree, most certainly.

But yea, I’m from the states, located in the religious strange ground of Utah. It’s a weird, weird world.

Thank you for the kind welcome and reply. I’m glad to have a lay of the land so to say :)

I, too, started out with Best Buy steelbooks, moving on to including anime and video game stuff. It seems like Best Buy is the gateway to steelbook collections, haha. I’ve only recently started looking towards premium full slips and what not, having a handful right now that started with a beautiful copy of “First Man”, but geez, things have progressed. I now need to dive into some One Click stuff, which is just an incredible bundle.
Needless to say, I need some new shelves and towers for my collection. The two I have just aren’t cutting it. 
I am really going to need to watch my funds because I have a hefty amount I’m paying off now, haha. I appreciate that advice, immensely so. I look forward to speaking with you and the other members of this rad community in the near future as we plunder the steelbook holds of the world together.

I’ll have to keep my eye out for an opportunity to participate in my first group buy in the near future. I’m so keen to get in on that.Kyle Mooney Snl GIF by Saturday Night Live

These 2 are great Retailers.

Manta Lab will make better WEA Steelbooks. Filmarena is make or miss, but they havent done WEA lately.

Filmarena wil blow away anybody at Goodies. Filmarena is "The Goodies" king.

 

My Top 2 Retailers:
WeET. Beautiful Boxsets. Great Lentis. Fantastic WEA Steelbooks. Fullslip Kings.

HDZeta. Beautiful Boxsets. Fantastic WEA Steelbooks. Beyond Amazing Lenticulars. LentiKings.

 

See you around!! ;)

Interesting! I’m glad to hear this information concerning WeET and HDZeta. Those are two manufacturers I’ve been eyeing, WeET, especially. WEA is so damn gorgeous the majority of the time.
I hope to get a hold of some of their products in the near future.

Plain Archive is another manufacturer that has really been interesting me recently. I have an Only Lovers Left Alive Lenti coming in the near future which I’m excited to study and stare at. PA seems to make solid full slips.

 

Thanks for your kind offer of assistance, my good individual. I will be certain to reach out if I run into any issues in the future

Just wanted to quickly mention @alitor_lorth that 1st, welcome aboard the crazy train!

2nd, I applaud your choice of Houses you are enthused to see editions from however,

3rd, P.A. seems to be in a state of 'transitional flux' (for lack of a better term) at the moment.
I think they were hit pretty hard by the "current global situation" and it's been some time since last update from them.

At least here, any news received will spread quickly and you will be updated accordingly buddy.

Again, welcome, we're happy to have you join us! 😀

Oh, nooo :( that’s horrible. I hope they recover. They have such beautiful releases.
I’m currently picking up some items from third party suppliers, so of course things are more expensive, but I did notice a handful of websites had zero items available for pre-order when I first looked to purchase directly through their platforms. I thought that was strange, but now this makes sense.

my steel heart has been dented.

I’ll keep my eyes out for some positive changes. I truly hope this happens.


On a positive note, I’m happy to be amongst you glorious people :) 

thank you for the welcome and intel, @Grendel!
