Steelbook Exclusive Worldwide 2012

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?


I think the only reason we think it's so big over here is because we can find a handful of people demanding them on the internet, but the sales figures disagree (though I would argue that that's probably because they charge a premium price for them, versus the UK or Canada where there's usually only a $2-3 difference). Best Buy, in fact, started producing G1 (DVD-Sized) steelbooks due to costs, depriving us of Blu sized steelbooks of Fast Five and the Jurassic Park Trilogy.

No big deal though, we can order from HMV for UK steelbooks and Amazon for pretty much all others. The only ones that we'll have trouble getting are Futureshop exclusive ones (like Hangover II). Futureshop has some pretty sweet steelbooks and slipcovers, so this is annoying to collectors.

Just my thoughts on it.

My guess is a steel tin similar to this but thinner of course.

I'm sorry to vent, but seeing all these awesome steelbooks available across the Atlantic and then I see in my email that Best Buy is selling a Steelbook for Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1, makes me a little sad at the US DVD market

Same. I'd rather have a steelbook then the shitty plastic casing.

I love the look of them.

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?"

$35 AC for that one is a bit painful to swallow. Might be worth seeing pics up front for that one to try and see if it's not some "exclusive" like we had for Thor and Captain America that wasn't a steelbook.

Especially when I have it for $25 on Amazon right now.

If it's that sweet looking steelbook. That one is going to be sold at Futureshop in Canada so it does seem like there's a good chance it could be sold here by BB. Hopefully it comes down in price though.

Here's what it looks like for those that missed it:

good luck getting this if you didn't pre-order Amazon France is notorious for sending the amaray when it doesnt specifically state steelbook or "coffret" (means box in french) in the title.

This actually isn't going to be a steelbook for Futureshop, its going to be a Viva metal box, this has been confirmed. For those that don't know other viva metal box's that have been released are the US lion king, and basically anything that Disney has had a hand in recently, seems they have gotten away from steelbooks for good.

Doesn't make a difference to me, I really liked the Lion King's casing.
