If this goes like the Hurt Locker scenario, it'll be listed at $29.99 and go on sale on release week for $24.99.

Not showing up on BB.com when searched by SKU # or "halo legends".

Currently, there's a single disc DVD, a 2-disc SE DVD and the BR version.

It's probably like they did for Hurt Locker, it's an exclusive BB item and not a pre-order bonus.

I'd check on BB.com for it being available online.

5 to 1 says it's a DVD sized case lol oh well I'll end up getting it anyway. I wonder if these are also going to be hard to get like the Hurt Locker. My BB only had 1 Steelbook and 2 reg's of that movie the day that I went in.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Hmm maybe it's just me but I can't find it on BB site and it has the EXACT same picture as the one at amazon. I thought the trend for steelbooks was to have a different cover?

If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

This isn't up yet, give it another week or 2. Looks like Futureshop is getting these too. Bauna has no info on this whether if is steelbook or ironpak.

Steelbooks are usually worth more in the long run. They tend to hold there value.

Any possibility this will be Blu/DVD or a combo? I'm still in SD, and can't justify ugrading just yet. God, I want that bad!!!!

Most tend to go up in value pretty quick. The Futureshop 'I Am Legend' Steelbook goes for over $200 on eBay.

If it's double-dipping, like they did on the Pixar/Disney steelbooks this holiday season, that's a tough one to swallow.

If you're going to be picking one up and you don't already own it, it's something to decide if you're willing to pay the price now for the movie on release instead of waiting later when it'll drop in price. I picked up the BB steelbook for Hurt Locker, though I was planning to get it anyway, so that was an easy decision.

The whole "import from Canada from FutureShop" of "import from Germany/some other country" situation when you're paying 2-3x the normal cost of the money, that's not for me. Cool stuff, though not my cup of tea.

plus if you import, you are inherently getting something un-American. not that it matters in a 'pride' sort of sense, but more like their language and callouts and logos are all different. I'd figure if you went for those, you'd have to go for all of them..which is insane!

Ditto. I only pick up the American released Steels on Blu... which are so far the 9 Bond Movies, This is It, The Hurt Locker, and the 11 Disneys... and as it looks New Moon & Halo Legends.

I passed on the Bond steelbooks, since I had the first six non-steelbooks from Amazon for $6 each during BF 2008, so I couldn't justify going with some with and some without, especially if we're not sure when they'd be doing the rest of them and if they're going to do any more in the future.

The Disney ones, I only did Up and Sleeping Beauty from the BB pre-orders, the rest of them would have been double-dips for me, so I was going to pass.

If there's more in the future I'd be interested in, like Halo Legends, then I'd look into getting it. Otherwise, I'm passing.

Bumping this back up since it releases next week.

BB page for the BluRay hasn't been updated with the steelbook packaging info yet, so keep an eye out for it.

"Fullscreen"...that has to be a mistake right? The DVD versions have "Fullscreen" on the description as well.
