 Ever wondered if you're Psycho enough?

@★ Platinum Psycho ★ @★ GOLD Psycho ★ @★ Members ★

To find out!

 

Welcome to the Psycho Challenge!

 

You might ask yourself

tumblr_nmaanxFV1I1tfbtrwo1_500.gif

 

Simple, each week (most likely on monday) we will have a new challenge waiting for you right here!

 

- You have time to participate in that challenge until the next one is posted.

- Each solved challenge is getting you 1 Point.

- Everyone can and should participate 😜

- At the moment the plan is that after reaching 10 Points members will receive a nice Psycho Challenge Award (to be revealed later).

- No need to panic if you can't participate in a certain challenge, there is always the next one coming.

 

What are the challenges?

 

Almost everything is possible. See my post here and here.

 

Can I also submit a Challenge?

 

Each member that is participating in a week can add to his post: "I have a challenge for next week".

 

It is important that you do NOT post the actual challenge/idea! It also must be a challenge that you yourself can solve, as you will be required to take part in your own challenge.

 

During the week one of the participating members that wants to submit a challenge will be chosen for the next week. You will be contacted to see if your challenge is okay for the game.

 

Anyway

Our third challenge is:

 

Show us the Top 3 "Extras" in your collection:

  • extras must have been included in the slip, mailed with the release, or an MP exclusive product
  • you must only pick one of each type of "extra"
  • extras must be pictured with the release they're associated with

As always, a brief explanation as to why these are your favorite is encouraged.

 

What qualifies as an "extra"? Here are some examples:

  • lenticular magnets/cards
  • posters, keychains, coins, etc
  • MP's TARS, Blade Runner Badge, release-specific magnets, etc
  • Pre-order bonuses

If it came with the release or from MP, then it counts!

 

Sealed collectors need not worry. There should be enough options outside of the shrink wrap to allow everyone to qualify. Show us what you can without piercing that precious plastic force field 😉 .

 

This challenge comes from @GuyIncognit0 read the reveal here!

 

Important, this Psycho challenge is supposed to be fun! It is intended to share cool pictures, exchange thoughts, ignite discussion and bring Psychos together. Hopefully it will also be a great starting point for the inactive Psychos and jump right into the action.

 

Special thanks go to @raylight for all gifs he made for this challenge and other awards 🙏

Former now inactive challenges will be stored here, so that we don't repeat ourselves.

Spoiler

Challenge 1 from @extantsrevenge:

 

Show us your favorite Lenticular Edition (that you own) and tell us why it is your favorite.

In addition let us know which type of lenticular you prefer? The one with depth only or the one with changing/transition images, include another 2 of your favorites of that type in your picture.

 

You are not allowed to use a previous award picture for the challenge! If you have not taken part in our Lenticular Award, now would be a good time to do so ☺️

 

Challenge 2 from @R1s1ngs0n:

 

Show us your 5 favorite Premium editions under the following stipulations:

- One edition only per retailer of your choice.

- The editions have to include at least one Asian release and one European release.

- The editions have to include at least one steelbook and one non-steelbook release.

 

A short summary explaining what makes each of these editions so special would be greatly appreciated, 

 

Please no pictures that show other editions than the once you selected.

It is no secret in these parts that lenticulars are not really my thing and my measly 5 lentis in my collection attest to that.

However... the following is an example of a lenticular done to perfection. The Fight Club DL from Manta has legendary status among lentis and rightly so. 

Not only is it aesthetically glorious but the wonderful transition perfectly encapsulates the theme of the movie, something that 99% of lentis do not even attempt to do (Nils' Memento is an obvious exception).

So naturally, transitional lentis done right carry much more appeal to me than the run-of-the-mill depth lentis, which have long become a tired gimmick in my eyes.

I will always favor a nice fullslip over a lenti, except when I find the lenti artwork superior to the fullslip (Manta BR DL being a recent example).

 

Nova's Reservoir Dogs is another favorite of mine - the transition is pretty cool, I must say.

I also include Jaws HDZ - the transition is less obvious than the preceding two, but still noticeable on the lady swimmer.

It is very difficult to choose between so many lentis that have given us joy over the years. But lately I was tremendously surprised by Hdzeta's Batman v Superman. It has it all :

- It has very good Depth
- It's got great Transition 
- It has very good Sad Affleck 🙂
- It's very sharp
- Good colour, good contrast

Why choose, when you can have it all?

As I'm also a lover of transitional lentis though I don't own many, my choice is the U'Mania Joker release. A really good idea, fantastic execution and wonderfully clear quality.

Runner-up because I also like the idea with my favorite scene from the movie  and of course love the movie itself, is Your Name from TheOn. The downside is that the effect isn't as visible in hand if you don't get the right angle.

@R1s1ngs0n damn that Fight Club DL is amazing. I'm not sure if I have ever noticed how good it is. If I did I must have forgotten, which is no surprise because my OC is sealed and I only have the FS as extra single 😅

 

@nexusjuan that new BvS DL is indeed an awesome release. I got my GB copy last week and was also really impressed by it. As you mentioned it combines all things that make a good lenti. It makes you forgive HDzeta a little for releasing the movies for a third time 😂.

 

What are 2 more Lenti that you really like?

 

@Trianna nice choices here and I love how you presented the Lenti to us with the small videos that even include your membership card 😍🙏. I also wish that the effect on Your Name would have been done a little better, as you say it is hard to capture.

Alright sooooo here I begin. When it comes to lentis I’m not the biggest collector and the only time I would get a lenti is when I prefer it over the fullslip. 
 

As for what is my favourite lenti it is 100% the greatest lenti of all time - Fight Club by Manta Lab

This in my opinion is a lenti with a purpose as it shows a transition of both characters on the back & front.

 

As for what is my favourite type of lenti I will have to say depth & lenti. It is really hard to pick.

 

Below are 2 of my favourite lentis, I don’t have many.

 

Iron Man by Blufans. Now this lenti isn’t the best and I think Blufans could of done a better job, nonetheless the idea of it showing both Tony and then transitioning into Iron Man.

Last but not least is Your Name by Kimchi.

I was pleased with this release and thought the lenti was done nicely as it show one of the iconic scenes from the movie. You get a nice transition for both characters disappearing.

I definitely prefer transition lentis and my favorite is Dunkirk from UHD Club.

The seamless transitions and depth on each image is simply stunning.

Another one I really like is HDZeta´s The Terminator:

Number 3 would be HDZeta´s Batman v Superman

Here is mine favourite in depth lenti edition. And in addition it has my lucky number. It's my lucky number because my daughter was born on 3rd of march 🙂

I also love transition lentis. My favourite, the Joker from U'Mania, was already posted by @Trianna

 

Couldn't agree more...😉

If I had to choose only one, it would probably be Tomb Raider from Hdzeta.


I'm not a fan of lenticulars in general but I find this one very successful, with beautiful colors and the impression that Alicia is following us with her eyes 😍

The 2 others, Rampage & I Am Legend are great too and complete the podium 🙂

My favorite lenticulars are the transitions. I have to agree with @hal56 , the Dunkirk from UHD Club is a show stopper. Easily my favorite in my collection. My second favorite would be the First Man edition from Cinemuseum. It transitions beautifully between the two images and the colors really pop. My 3rd would be HDZeta’s Beetlejuice, it has a great transition of Alec & Geena disappearing and reappearing and it also has great depth.

After examining my meager lenti collection, I've decided that my favorite is Manta's The Prestige.

 

Simple yet effective, very mesmerizing, a bit unnatural in presentation. Just like the movie.

 

Despite this being a depth lenti, my favorite type is actually transition. Ironically, I have none to showcase so I'm going with some non-steel lenticulars: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

 

 

I have a challenge for next week, and it's truly too Psycho* for most of you!

*I am legally required to say that the level of "Psycho" is completely subjective.

It’s not a secret I am personally very keen about lenticular because of transitions and the fact that you have the feeling the picture is “alive”.

 

I am actually on holidays at 2200 km from home but fortunately I have a video and a photo of my favorite lenticular I didn’t use for the special lenti award. 
 

This lenticular is the Filmarena master box of Return to the Future Trilogy. I love this trilogy very much, reason why I show you it again here.

 

I want to apology because I can’t send you a photo with my media psycho card + a paper with my psycho if but as I said… I’m too far away from home and I’ll be back home only on next Wednesday.

 

if the card is really necessary, there is also this picture of Avengers Age of Ultron. There is my card and the paper 🤪. It looks nice but it is not at all one of my favorite movie (even if I think mentis are amazing).

 

Good day to all of you and enjoy this new award!!

I only started collecting premiums early this year. 😅 BUT, I have some that I’m quite fond of, especially when it comes to lenticular depth and transition.

 

For depth, quality and overall clarity, I have to go with the Manta Lab Tenet Single Lenticular Slip. It’s the cleanest lenticular I’ve seen in-person, and I love the depth with the title and explosion in the background.

 

For transition, I have to go with the HDZETA The Dark Knight Double Lenticular Slip. The back-side has an incredible transition between Batman/Joker and Batman/Joker covered in Joker vandalism (HAHA, “To Them You’re Just A Freak Like Me”, the Smiley over Batman’s face). This was the edition that got me into collecting! I saw it in a YouTube video and was like “Whoa…how come I don’t have that?!”.
