Well the value on my future shop one just tanked lol. Damn Transformers.

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?"

The Warner Steelbooks will be at Walmart in-store and Amazon/Best Buy online.

The Paramount MetalPacks so far look like a Walmart Exclusive.

The Universal Steelbooks are going to be at Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart. A Walmart employee said they already received the Universal Steelbooks and will be put out on May 7 with the Warner Steelbooks and Paramount MetalPacks.

For anyone wanting some of these I noticed the Walmart I work at has already started setting the shelf for these and they are all $12.96(from what I could tell). The only ones I did not see last night are the Paramount steels.

I checked out the steels at Walmart. Word of warning: the Transformers Steels are the single-disc editions, so you aren't getting extras.

Makes me kinda glad I imported them after all.

Most, if not all, of those Warner Steels from BB were single disc. So it isn't too surprising. Most steelbooks that we get here that are releases of older movies are single disc for some reason.

This may be my OCD but please stop calling the paramount wave from walmart "steels" they are not steelbooks. They are Metalpak's, which are vastly inferior in the quality of the cases and dent and chip very easily.

I get what you're saying but despite being a brand steelbook is a word that many people who aren't super duper collectors like myself use as an adjective to describe any metal case.

That being said all the transformers steelbooks... err.. metal packs at my Walmart were slightly damaged and didn't look as if they closed properly.

Are there any steelbooks or "metal paks" that people are more interested in then others?

I ended up picking up both transformers, watchmen, scott pilgrim, and scarface.

steelbook is actually a brand, real steelbooks will have the steelbook brand logo on the inside of it found on their official site steelbook.com , the design and quality of a steelbook is vastly superior to that of a metalpack , as a steelbook collector im not interested in metalpacks

I know it's a brand. I think I covered that in the first sentence when I said...

It's like how everyone says "band-aid" when that is actually a brand too... or kool-aid.. etc.

I'm going to collect what's available and what I like. I'm not going to pass on a metal pak or tin if that's all that is available for a movie or game I am interested in.

That being said I was curious if any of this weeks releases / rereleases interested people more then others for whatever reason

For some reason Walmart is not getting all 16 of the Reel Heroes Steelbooks. The ones they're missing are Hot Fuzz, Hulk, The Mummy, Paul, and Shaun of the Dead.

Also Watchmen is the only Steelbook that contains interior artwork. The Universal Steelbooks all have BD, DVD, and Digital Copies. The MetalPacks are single disc and have artwork inside, at least the ones I've seen so far.

If Walmart is going to have an incomplete set of the Reel Heroes steelbooks, then I think I'll just order them from Amazon, as I'd need to get them from some other source to fill in the missing gaps. For the $1.03/movie difference plus trying to track them all down, I'd rather have them show up at my door.

With Walmart having the rest of them at $12.96, it makes it an easier decision to pick them up there over Amazon and Best Buy (even with Upgrade and Save).

Finding them all might be difficult unless you luck out at a Walmart first thing tomorrow morning or one that already has them out now.

Personally, I am probably going to skip them all. I already own the imported DOTM and Scott Pilgrim (Universal 100th) Steels and have the first Transformers and Hellboy II Steels being shipped. Have the first Batman Begins Steel (which has better art) and not interested in any other Batman films enough to spend $13 on them. I despise the Reel Heroes covers and wish they had brought over the other Hulk Steel (which Amazon.uk cancelled on me then jacked up the price) instead.

But keep in mind that Amazon rarely ever sells Steelbooks, which means they have no idea how to handle and packed them correctly like Amazon.uk and Amazon.de do. You're better off buying the ones you want from Walmart and ordering the couple from Amazon that Walmart doesn't have. Just a suggestion.

If I buy all of them at once, they'll be packed in a box and likely dealt with properly. One-offs or a couple ordered on an order, I'm taking my chances.

I do keep in mind about Amazon possible packaging issues, though right now, my free time to trek around from Walmart to Walmart to try and find them is pretty much zero, so I'd rather deal with Amazon making a mistake than hitting multiple Walmarts to try and find what I need. I'd still need to fill in the blanks for the four Walmart isn't going to get, which means I'm still taking a chance on getting damaged items on a smaller shipment.

The problem is Metalpacks can be very crappy, especially on multiple disc releases. See DA: O, ME 2, & ME 3 CE's. (DA hard to close & ME 3 has to have spindles sawed down or you crack the disks taking them out.)

I've never ordered from Zavvi before and in April I ordered The Man with the Iron Fists. Dispatch date was 4/16. How long does it generally take to receive shipments from them? I also have Black Swan and Aladdin pre-ordered.
