I'm a collector of steelbooks but has it ever been found why they never caught on in America like they did Europe, in America, we get an annual one for a classic disney film and maybe a Pixar film which are Best Buy exclusives, and 3-5 other movies get one but thats it. Meanwhile over in Europe, some countries get that amount of steelbooks America gets in a year, in just one month. I've never understood this since America is filled with collectors and hoarders who one would think would love to have a steelbook for every movie they own. Can anyone shed any light on this?

This is probably due to steelbooks being more expensive for, what it comes down to, is a case.

I have ONE steelbook movie and that's for Spawn (animated) which I got $7. The other is for Soul Calibur IV Premium which I got at launch for $40. Those are deals tho'.

After buying an absolute ton of DVDs previously and looking at how many, barely having room for them, and not watching many of them anymore, then now buying Blu-Rays (got a ton of those), I and many others would ask themselves whether those disc being in steel with better art really matters a ton.

I'd be spending EXTRA for notthemovie.

Mind you, I don't waste money on collector's editions of games either. I buy too many games and have game systems since Odyssey2 (even have Vectrex).

Not a lotta room for fluff. I TOTALLY understand folks in America not buying steelbooks like that for all but the rich and the careless.

IF I had money to burn like that, sure I'd go for steelbooks....then again...maybe not. It's still JUST a movie and if you buy lots of movies, that already adds up.

I don't wanna add up the cost of....cases.

If anything, I'd want a steelbook for the cream of the crop, very rare beastly show or movie.

Like....give me a steelbook of The Wire or Babylon 5 preferably on Blu-Ray but then, how much more is it for the steel cases?

I get what you're saying. Although I do appreciate the looks of these other regioned movies I personally won't purchase them unless they play on my player. I also try to only get them when they are on sale or if they are limited numbers I purchase two one to resell and the other to keep at lowered price due to the resell.

Still I enjoy viewing these thread just to see the purty artwork.

Oh yes, flipping to another person that's wants to waste is on point.

Hell I flipped Blackberry Playbooks.

Steelbook artwork is rather pretty, I agree. Reminds me of comics sometimes-another thing I USED to collect but found myself spending way too much money on.

Thanks for that, grabbed a few I didn't have. Not to flip, I don't flip I buy for me. Nothing like seeing someone hoard items at a store that they don't even want when someone (me) does and doesn't get it.

Thanks but the steelbooks for both Kill Bills are double the cost of the regular Blu-Rays (including shipping).

Thanks but the 2 cases are not worth $20. Shipping really kills it.

I wish other areas gave shipping discounts for Prime members.

Definitely buy more than one disc since it's looks like it's a whopping $10 for 1 but only $2 more for the second (or more it looks like).

It makes perfect sense though. They are making money. You are spending it.

Plus, things like this prove that people like you are willing to spend extra money for something that, at it's heart, is cheaper.

Definitely tempted. The cover arts are awesome. I probably would have jumped if I didn't take advantage of the BB buyback program to get both for $10 total.

Awesome. Much better as a pre-order bonus than a stand-alone release.

You can get it at Amazon UK

There's a few others coming out too from Masters of Cinema/Eureka, check the first post wiki. Just know that these are Region B locked so you will need a player that can play those.

It comes out in October, so I don't think there's a steelbook for it in March.

If it does end up coming out in march what they'll do is give out the steel as a pre-order bonus like Disney does with the Vita cases, then come Oct. or whenever its released you can go pick up your game.
